Honing Precision with Mantis X10 Elite

Whether you’re a veteran hunter, novice sport shooter or simply conceal carry for personal protection, there’s always room for improvement when it comes to shot placement and the overall handling of a firearm or bow. For the serious shooter striving to improve, the Mantis X10 Elite is an indispensable tool for honing overall precision. 

The shooting system uses a detachable sensor that mounts to your shotgun, rifle, pistol or bow, and communicates with smartphone or tablet applications. Mantis offers a rifle/pistol app, a shotgun app and an archery app, all free to download and use with its shooting system. 

After you’ve mounted the Mantis X10 Elite sensor to your firearm or bow, simply open the appropriate app, pair it with your smartphone or tablet and answer a few basic setup questions. 

If you’re using a firearm, the Mantis system is compatible with both dry and live fire, allowing for training without spending a fortune on ammunition. The Mantis system works not by analyzing your shot placement, but instead, the system shows you why your shot ended up where it did. By identifying your body’s input on the firearm prior to the shot, the system detects when the shot is fired and backs up your movements 1/1,000th of a second, providing you crystal clear data, including stability, trigger press, muzzle trace and more. 

It almost sounds too good to be true, but the system’s sensitivity and accuracy is evident in the real-time motion-tracker feature on the app. Using it, you are able to see how the sensor picks up the slightest shift in your aim, no matter your skill level.  

Mantis boasts that shooters who use the X10 Elite system almost immediately improve their precision because the technology provides instant feedback on corrective measures needed for a more precise shot. If you have a habit of moving the muzzle slightly before you shoot, Mantis will identify that, and you can then make a cognizant effort to correct that behavior. 

My favorite feature is the time lapse of each shooting session, which provides a great visual perspective of your shooting habits. This feature is especially useful in understanding how your accuracy may vary from one firearm to another. For instance, the system can identify your stability variance between a lighter firearm and a heavier one. 

Through the app, Mantis offers a variety of courses and drills that connect you to the Mantis shooting community to see how your skills compare to others. Plus, even the best shooters can improve using detailed drills on holster draw, cadence shooting and more.

Whether you’re trying to win sporting clays competitions or you want to ensure the most ethical shot on your harvest, with an MSRP of $249.99, the Mantis X10 Elite shooting system is a relatively small price to pay for the peace of mind it provides.
