The Mantis BlackbeardX combines the two most powerful training platforms available - the MantisX and the Mantis Blackbeard. Additionally, it unleashes a completely new capability that the world has never seen before: in-depth dynamic shooting analysis. BlackbeardX goes far beyond a shot timer - it includes motion-based analysis of your efficiency in a high-speed, multi-target engagement. It analyzes your economy of motion across multiple dimensions, giving you real-time feedback on where and how you can improve your dynamic shooting.
- On-target delay score. Most shooters delay on target for longer than they need to. This metric tells you exactly how long you delay - and how much faster you could go with the same level of accuracy.
- Over-travel. Multi-target transitions are often accompanied by moving the gun past or through a target before coming back to take the shot. BlackbeardX quantifies the egregiousness of the over-travel movement.
- Transition path. The most efficient path between two targets? A straight line. Deviate from that path, and your score decreases. The more efficient the path, the more effective the shooting.
- Combining these three metrics with a visualization of your shooting scenario crystallizes understanding we never had access to before.
The BlackbeardX takes the capability of the Blackbeard into an entirely new dimension.
The BlackbeardX contains the MantisX technology that has changed the way shooter improve. Providing real-time feedback on shooting technique, with smart coaching and actionable analytics, you'll never improve faster than with this powerful combination.
Blackbeard + MantisX = BlackbeardX
But there's a whole lot more. In addition to static shooting analysis, the BlackbeardX unlocks unprecedented capability to analyze and improve dynamic shooting: high-speed movement with multi-target engagements. It sounds powerful because it is. Nothing has ever analyzed your capabilities like this before.
Installation takes less than a minute. Pop the rear pin, remove the bolt carrier group, drop in BlackbeardX, put the magazine in place to provide the power, and you're off to the races. It's a 20 second change-out. Dry fire away, counting how much money you're saving with every sweet trigger break and reset that you hear.
If you already own a Blackbeard, you only need the BlackbeardX magazine/powerbank, as it works with your existing BCG replacement.
