Ordered a new target from these folks after Christmas and just sent them a follow up email as it hadn't shipped yet. Received a quick reply from David the CEO of the company asking me to call him. Long story short, he apologized for the slow shipping and confusion on their part and he upgraded me to the next bigger target. You can't beat customer service like that! He also asked me to spread the word and to have folks call him directly for a discounted price other than what's on their website. Good to see somebody doing it right! If you're interested in their number, shoot me a message!

I know. Bought the original that I never received to sight in some new Thorn broadheads the wife got me for Christmas. Hopefully the replacement gets here in time for me to dial them in before my season goes out on January 14th. I may go ahead and just shoot my Muzzys anyway. Hate to ruin a new, fancy broadhead on just any old doe!

Know what you mean. I have some new Swhackers that I'm saving until next year now.

Here’s my quick review. After the initial confusion, Broad Force made it right and my target arrived reasonably soon. First impression was good. Solid and weighty but not too heavy. It’s the 20X20 model and weighs 20 lbs. Construction seems excellent. Bright orange color allows easy target acquisition. Shot 9 bolts into it from my CenterPoint which shoots around 364fps. Penetration was consistent between 6-8 inches everywhere on the target. Removal was decent with the exception of 2 that I had to use a puller on. Heads were standard field points and Thorn Broadheads which are basically a field point when locked. Longevity is unknown but I like the target and I liked the people that make it.

PS: Ill shoot a fixed blade Muzzy into it later and see what it does.

I got one of these targets for my husband for Christmas. Problem is once they shot their arrows into it it took 2 grown men to get them out of the target. Any suggestions. They've only shot like 6 arrows into it and gave up because it is such a pain in the ass to remove the arrows. Should not be so difficult to remove field tips from this target.

Any suggestions. Bought it last year for Christmas and have only shot 6 arrows into it in almost a year.

More than likely its because they are field points. Some targets are for broad heads only. You can try some arrow lube. Rail lube works just as well for me. You can also try twisting the arrow to break the bond that happens from friction causing heat that bonds/melts the 2 together. Just dont twist too hard or it will break the shaft. Good luck. Hope this helps.I have also found that leaving the targets out in the cold will also make arrows tougher to pull. Keep it indoors before shooting during the cold months.

my first trip to the range and my arms and wrists were killing me from pulling arrows from my gun clubs foam targets. my tip is rub the shafts with a good coating of household bar soap. Still will be a bit tough to pull them out but a BIG difference with soap.
