Any one use the Mantis dry fire tool?

Seen ads for it. It seems expensive and gimmicky, but maybe it’s not.

It become popular these days. It is a great tool if you like to analyze your shots.
Otherwise laser cartridge and laser target is enough.
There’s a lot of free app and software that visualize your laser hits to be more realistic.

Anyway…Mantis is great, I’ve been using it on classes only (X3 version) for deep analyze. It shows and explains your mistakes in details.

Is it expensive? Not anymore comparing to ammo cost. X10 maybe is too much. X3 is ok for training.

Actually I should correct myself because we discuss dry firing… So X2 is enough for this purpose… however losing live fire capabilities seems like money wasting…($70 more for X3 is reasonable).

I give it a :+1:

A laser cartridge will tell you that you missed, but the MantisX will tell you “why” you missed.

I find it a great tool for dryfire especially the holster draw (only on X10?) as it breaks down each piece of the draw process so you can see exactly where you are spending the most time or being inconsistent.

Yeap… “holster” and “recoil” analysis are available on X10 only. :slightly_frowning_face:

It’s helpful for dry fire practice and live ammo practice.
I recommend it, especially with the ammo crunch.
It will help get you more consistent in your shooting.
