I have the rinehart broadhead buck and a yellow jacket 450 pillow target on the way. One been needing new targets for awhile now. Should be good for a while.
I would not count on block targets either. I have rebuilt several, adding tougher material and packing much tighter. First this greatly increases the weight. Going thicker is not the answer. Any target over 18" (example the Morrell 400 or 450 feet per second, field point only), after a bit of shooting, the target bulges and one can have a 20" arrow fully trapped in it. I would suggest 12" to 14" thick at the maximum. Some crossbows now are coming out with 18" arrows.Wowwww. That's awesome. I guess I need to invest in a good block target next. The 3d deer target industry has gone to shi*
There are a few other targets, I had hoped to test but not at this rate. One was the Spyder Web and another the Matrix. The Matrix cube sections can be changed to different areas. I inquired a couple years a go, and to save shipping costs, the target could be shipped to a location close to the Canadian border but still in the U.S.A. If one was purchasing a quantity of items and made say a monthly pick up, this would work. Being I seldom travel to the U.S.A. and have to purchase a passport and the high fuel costs, it is cheaper to pay shipping or go with out.Jesus.
This is highway robbery
Something has to be done. I'll just practice on the real thing .
Can you describe this mod a little more? I have a brand new “Block” waiting for my xb to arrive, so I’d like to know exactly what hard foam material you used to improve it for siting in mechanical broadbeads. Thanks!I would not count on block targets either.
Some block targets (The Block) with the recessed hand hole are excellent to carry. It is advertised with a hard center nucleus, supposedly good for field point or broad head. Where these fail is the 1 1/2" to 2" outside area is poor quality foam that breaks up very easily and has no resistance. Going to the hand hold area, one loses approximately 2" due to that recess. To help re enforce this target, I put approximately 2 1/2" hard foam flat target, ratchet strapped to the front to help prevent the foam chunks from coming out when removing broad heads.
The hard center makes it very hard to remove a broad head.
