Default Target for G5 T3s??

As you guys know I had a bad experience last last with trying T3s and having them stay in my 18 to 1 target.

I would like to try them again but want to know what you guys shoot them into to practice.

T3's those are the expandables right? On the expandable broadheads I chose not to buy any ofthem unless they offer a practice tip. Ireally wanted to try the swhackers this year but couldn't faind a practice tip so I went with the rage. I used the switch blades last year and like them well too.

Anyone got an answer for me?

The season is right here next week.

I will go by the target tomorrow if I can find one.

Dense styrofoam or a block target are the easiest targets on mechanicals.

I finally got an answer from AT and then a quick response from G5. I didn't know that the practice blades don't deploy. It doesn't say it anywhere on the package or online. So with they struck shut they are smaller than a fixed blade head. I don't understand why they only send one set of practice blades with a package of broadheads.

Thanks to those that tried to help me.

Heck, I'm glad company's only send one practice head per pack! Can you imagine what they'd charge for a pack of 3 broadheads and 3 practice tips?! Balls sakes, we'd be talking $60 per pack min!!

I plan on using a whitetail as the target for mine.

JK... I have a giant piece of foam and just push them through if they are not already on the other side.
