Just wondering what target you guy's are using to stop high speed crossbows?

My dad uses a Yellow Jacket for field points. Any bag style works pretty good for FP's.

For broadheads, I'm in the market for a new target, and Blob Targets are high on my list. Pricey, but most broadhead capable targets are equally pricey.

Only complaint I've read about the Blob is that arrows can be tough to pull for a bit till you shoot it up a bit.

I have a Big Shot Ballistic 450X bag for target crossbolts and a Black hole that has 2 sides for broad heads and 2 for target.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

I have a Rinehart 18-1 target I use for broad heads only...have had it for years. For target points I buy from Third Hand target covers and fill them with old clothes. I have left one third hand target outside uncovered for three years now and it is still working fine.

I've been using the Delta Mckenzie speed bag. It has been stopping bolts from my Ravin R20 without any problems. Very easy to remove the bolts too!!

Be very very quiet!!

Third Hand Archery sells target faces. Build a 2x12 frame, put the faces on, stuff with rags. It will stop all arrows with no problems. we use them at our club & the faces last a year or more with a lot of shooters.

I use the Rinehart 18-1 for vertical/crossbow, both with field points and broadheads. It's still going after many years and many shots.
