Re: Target

Re: Target

Stay away from the glendel deer target. Even with field tips, my insert was shot in two months, another insert days with broadheads. I've returned several Cabelas bag targets that failed the test, went finally to rinehart, that's been the best by far.

Re: Target

Btw , the glendel insert is made by the block, depends how much you shoot, but I'll tell you, a couple dozen shots a day killed it quickly, plus I shoot off an elavated stand a lot, that really kills it!

Re: Target

We have around 5000 shots into a Big Shot Ballistic 300 bag target without any problems. I like them for field points the best. The Rinehart 18-1 is my favorite for broadheads.

I don't like shooting into the block type targets for a long time as arrow removal is a nightmare on most of them. A good bag type target is easiest, as it only requires two fingers most of the time.

Re: Target

I use the deadstop bag. It is hung by two ropes from the top. It swings a little when the arrow hits so if absorbs more enegy.
