Mantis Archery X8 Shooting Analysis System
- Special Orders
Whether you shoot recurve, compound, or barebow, the Mantis X8 intelligent shooting analysis system can take your training to the next level.
At its core, the X8 is a precision IMU (accelerometer + gyroscope + magnetometer) that analyzes movement patterns. The X8 analyzes thousands of data points per second, providing real-time feedback on your shooting performance to the smartphone/tablet app (available on Google Play and Apple App Store).
Through analyzing movement patterns, including micro movements that the eye cannot see, the X8 system evaluates performance and consistency, identifies areas of improvement, and tracks progress over time. Each shot generates a detailed analysis, and the user is able to compare phases of each shot to others. The X8 is a definitive game changer for high performance competitive archers, and allows them to have a more comprehensive understanding of their shooting.

This plus a tripod for your camera to film your form will give you a lot of great info on any extra movements during your shot process. Comes with a better mounting rail than the old single **** one to make it easier to mount to your sight bracket (unfortunately they only included a single ****). App is a bit buggy though when inputting your bow's data. Seems to change a bunch of fields overwriting the stuff I had entered. I took a star off for the software as well as the unit is made of plastic. I would've preferred the rail and sensor be made of aluminum as I have no idea how well the plastic will hold up over time with the high vibration of bows. If the picatinny mount on the unit somehow fails, I don't really have a lot of confidence that this unit would survive a fall off the bow
This is a really good training tool to map out your shot process. It is very sensitive and measures things like shot cycle timing and cant, etc.
Mantis X8 Archery provides a pretty darn good picture of your shot and process. The graphics and charts are helpful. I have recommended Mantis to others and bought a second unit for my son! I wish they had a few more tutorials for a more clear understanding of all the analysis features!!
Special orders receive top priority and are given prompt attention. While larger items like bows may not always be readily available, many special order items are consistently kept in stock. The general turnaround time for special orders is a minimum of 8 weeks, depending on the lead times set by the manufacturer.
Certain bows, such as custom target bows and high-quality traditional recurve bows, are exclusively made to order directly from the manufacturer.
In some instances, left-handed products like premium target equipment may experience unforeseen delays due to batch production by the manufacturer.
We strive to meet the deadlines mentioned above and make every effort to do so. However, there may be circumstances beyond our control that prevent us from meeting those deadlines. If such a situation arises, we will make every effort to rectify the issue. Special orders can be canceled or exchanged and are eligible for a refund after 8 weeks.
