Rinehart Block XL Brute for broad heads. This target is shootable on 6 sides, 4 sides rated for field point. Hard to remove even if arrow shafts are lubed until broken in. Feedback from Rinehart recommended shooting the field point side with broad heads to loosen it.

Spyderweb if planning to shoot field points.

The higher the draw weight the crossbow is the tougher the target has to be.

If you check you tube, there are lots of advertising on there. pay attention to what bow is used (usually vertical), the distance the shooter is from the target and how much arrow shaft has not entered the target. The more arrow shaft not entering the target and the farther the distance to the target the easier it is to remove the arrow.

Many of the targets are over rated in feet per second and should only be shot with a vertical bow.

All the best with what ever you choose.

So I will start off by saying that I am extremely frugal. We know BH chew up all targets and BLOB is too expensive for me.
Every year I go to Tractor Supply store in spring when they get the trailer shipments. They toss out or are willing to give the foam blocks for free. I pick up 12 and then glue 4 of them in 2x2 format making 3 targets.
Shoot broadheads in them with never spending $$$ except for a tube of glue.

The drawback is that you will have foam fragments all over the yard until the wind blows it all away.

I am for the Blob also. It's a great investment and a needed one in my opinion if you plan on shooting at animals. It might cost 40 bucs more than what your willing to pay but it's worth every penny when it comes to whether or not that animal will die painlessly or suffer a long time. I have enough on my concionse I'm not trying to create more remorse in my life. I spent the $150.00 on a Blob Broadhead Target and am now relieved of the stress of needing a good way of testing my arrows flight.

Do you leave the blob outdoors and how many shots can it take from a broadhead?

My brother has an original over 30 years old (1986) and it has been shot thousands of shots over the years and has been in his backyard uncovered the whole time. I thought he had given it away as he has trouble shooting his bows now but saw it when I was there a while back still in the yard. Had I known it was there I would have "borrowed" it and not bought a new one.

Maybe its time for me to try them after all.
The reason i switched to foam blocks was my rhinehart was extremely difficult to pull arrows with BH out from; to the point that I cut myself twice over a 3 yr period. Just use that for FP now.

I use a cardboard box filled with sheets of cardbard all sizes ,,even cereal and cracker boxes flattened, plus a couple rugs in the back of the box. Been using it for years. When cardboard inside gets torn up I just keep adding cardboard. When I shoot a broadhead into it I reach between the cardboard layers where the broadhead has stopped and carefully unscrew it from the shaft/ Then just pull the shaft out. Maybe too much trouble for most, but it only cost me Cardboard. which I seem to continually accumulate.

Rinehart are cheaper than the Blob off sale but are so much harder to remove arrows with Broadheads!

A set of Danny Miller’s pliers will solve that.

I have found nothing better than a Blob. There ugly, heavy and a bear to pull a field tip from. But they last and i'm the guy that shot up 2 18 to 1 targets in one summer and ordered a 20x20 blob and shot it for 5 years after that. My 18x18 blob i replaced it with is getting pretty wore and i need to replace it soon. Its 3 years old. I shoot big broadheads seldom shoot field tips. The truglo Hybrids i shot had a lot to do with the 18" short life span.
