I am looking to buy some 3d targets and was hoping to get some help on which brand and target would be the best for my money. I have shot the glendel buck but after a while the arrows were almost passing through. I know McKenzie is a big name I just have never shot them, and I know there is others I just want quality. I appreciate the help.

It all comes down to "How much you are willing to spend?" and what you are going to use it for?
Mckenzies and Rineharts are top of the line and both hold up well. @ $200 + for a deer target, it may be worth the money to invest in one depending on what you are going to use it for. Rineharts look like cartoons, while McKenzie targets have a more realistic look to them.
R&W and Hinton are unknown names in the target world, but hold just fine at a cheaper cost of the big guys.(http://www.randwtargets.com/index.html) (http://www.hintontargets.com/)
Delta's / Cabela’s targets are not very well made, but have cheap replacement vitals. You will blow threw them in no time, and replace vitals 2-3 times a year. (Targets under $100 and vital around $30)
I personally have a Cabela deer in my yard that I use for hunting season to shoot braodheads into and leave it out for the real bucks to beat up.
Unless you are looking for setting up a small practice range in your yard to go pro, I would say save your money... go cheap and utilize your local 3D shoots. This way you spend $10 to shoot at a club, you will be able to shoot 30 different targets every week and not worry about target maintenance.
