Broadhead Target

I'm in the search for a new broadhead target as mine is now about shot and the company no longer makes the version I had. I wanted to get everyone's opinion on what they use and what is a good one to go with. So everyone start shooting.

I'm a fan of Reinharts.

I put 4 of this square walking/floor mats together. Stops the arrow, but I'm shooting 50-60 lb recurve. Only drawback is the broadhead has to be removed to pull the arrow. Cost was <20$

I'm also a Rinehart guy. Pricey, yes. Buy once cry once. Mine is in its 4th season of heavy use and is still solid, although there are certainly soft spots in it now. I also keep it outside. Its never been inside since day one. No degradation of the material, other than the color has faded.

BLOB! the end.

my only answer to this question every time it's asked.

better than all the rest and those opposing my answer have not tried one because it must be ordered versus picked up at the local sporting good store.

You want me to put my ear to the ground? Listen for hoof beats? Look for broken twigs?

I use Reinharts 18-1. Have the current one for 7 years and still checking my sight in with broad heads. Years ago before good broad targets were on the market we would purchase heavy duty ethafoam polyethylene planks. They would stop our arrows on a partial pass through and we would remove the broad heads, pull the arrow and reattach the broad head. The planks were expensive and it require handling sharp broad heads a few times; however, it was the best he had in those days.

I don't mind spending a few bucks for a good broad target, whereas the best check for tuning POI is shooting exactly what one is hunting with at the moment of truth.

In the days before broadhead targets, we used paper targets stretched over a wooden frame with a sandpile to stop the arrows.

Agreed--best archery target going for the money. If one doesn't want to order them--hey that's fine.
I also like Rineharts 18-1 or their latest crossbow target tolerates broadheads pretty well.
