- Weighing several hundred pounds, the X-Ring Machine offers an extremely stable shooting platform that is far sturdier than any commercially available shooting device. The shooting bridge on the machine moves on linear slides driven by a servo motor in tandem with electronic sensors that know exactly when the desired draw length is achieved. The bowstring is released via an external plunger button. Shooting arrows from the X-Ring Machine ensures exact repeatability of the draw cycle and release shot after shot.
