What target are you using?

Postby ajmorell » Tue Aug 23, 2011 10:39 am

I'm in need of a new target. I've used the Block targets before and they are ok, but overpriced IMO. I was really considering a rinehart, but damn they are expensive. I got a flier from Bass Pro today with their layered target for a pretty good price ($50 for the big one if I remember right). What are you using, would you buy it again, is it worth the money? I'm specifically looking for a block-style target (ie not a game-sized/deer/bear/elk, etc target).

I have a rhinehart 18in1 and wouldn't recommend it IMO arrows are tougher than hell to get out and the price is steep. If I was smarter I would have just got a nice big bag target and if I wanted to shoot broadheads I would've used a buddies or bought a lower end broadhead safe target.

I got a few thousand arrows through my black hole, much cheaper then the block.

Block Poly Black. Arrows don't penetrate very far it and you can still pull them out with 2 fingers. I shoot field points on 3 sides of it and broad heads on one side.

I would buy another block 4x4 in a heartbeat. Mine is on it's 3rd season of shooting around 100 arrows a week during the summer months. Never brought the target inside so it's been through 2 winters as well. Just keep repainting new circles on it an its still stopping arrows solid. For the 80$ I paid for it I don't see how you can go wrong as far as durability goes.

I shoot a Morrel bag target for my field points and shoot a Black hole with broad heads. The morrell is 5 years old and I put a new $10 cover on every other year. It works well. The Black Hole is fairly new and it doesn't always hold my BH's back at 20 yards. I also screw my heads off before pulling the arrow to try and extend life of the target.

I also have a Morrel bag target and it has been great for over 5 years outside. I way think about getting a new cover for it other then that its awesome for your $$ Now for my BH i have a Cabela's brand block and it's not doing to good with my Rage practice heads so i only shoot field points into now. My buddy has the Black Hole Block and it works great. Good luck and remember sometimes you get what you pay for. :thumbsup:

Rinehart all the way, you will never buy another target. they are well worth the $$$

me and 4 other friends have been shooting at a rinehart buck every other day for the past month and will continue to untill season and there isnt any wear on the target and we shoot for 2 hrs straight each time we shoot. they have a self healing foam.
