The Mantis system is one of the best, if not the best dry fire system currently on the market. We live in a time and place where ammo is expensive and money is tight for most Americans. So, dry fire becomes the way to keep up with and maintain skillsets. The Mantis dry fire training system brings innovation into the market that the industry has long been waiting for. The Mantis system is known for providing data-driven feedback to its end user to provide real-time feedback on their performance without the costly sacrifice of ammunition. Today, Mantis is proud to announce its newest offering, the Blackbeard. The new BlackbeardX is a technological leap forward compared to the original Blackbeard now giving end users access to new dynamic drills to enhance their dry fire training experience.

Each dynamic shooting drill from the BlackbeardX will give the end user a score based on a combination of your on-target delay, over-travel movement, and transition path. By collecting these data points and combining them with the BlackbeardX can show the strengths and weaknesses of the shooter which in turn would allow them to gain more from their dry fire training. While also allowing the shooter to tailor their training to their specific needs. This data allows the shooter to create performance standards and goals to aim for in the future.

Below, is the product description for the new BlackbeardX from Mantis.
