    Their not cheap but I found for broadhead, I couldn't beat the Rinehart 18-1. We've tried every target you can imagine in our indoor range. The guys normally start shooting broadheads in August. Nothing held up as well as the Rinehart.

    I do not shoot many broadheads a year so for me I just buy the cheap one from Wal-Mart and test out mine before season. I do shoot them every now and then throughout the year but not much.:peace:

    Yellowjackets do a good job and last for about two seasons of serious shooting of b-heads. Cheap enough for eighty bucks or so with six sides to work with. DON'T shoot field tips in them. Very, very hard to pull out without inflicting some bodily harm on yourself. Scar still there on my left leg. :Cry:

    I've had 2 yellowjackets, they do just OK, I mean they do stop them, but develope shot-out spots pretty easy. I double-dare ya to shoot fieldpoints into it :laugh: . I was wondering about these. http://www.archerytargets.com/
    Anybody tried them? My next will be an 18-1 or mabey one of these.

    I've had a Rinehart 18-1 now for almost 2 years and it's probably going to outlive me... It is exceptionally good at handling broadheads of any type. The same goes for the smaller Rinehart RFT. It's smaller and lighter but easy to pack away and just break out when you and buddies want to have some fun. I don;t know what that foam is those things are made out of but it's some really tuff stuff. And arrows are very easy to remove.

    I'm impressed at their products...

    i did some shoppin around and this site offers the best deal for the rhinehart as far as cost and shipping cost. right now its almost impossible to buy in store cause of limited stock . i got hooked on this sport by shooting a friends 10 year old browning at a round bale , and i shoot 4 out of 7 days a week, so i'm ordering--my son is ordering --the rhinehart for fathers day!

    Same here. For the money you cant beat these cheapo targets. I think they are like 25.00 and I have been shooting at mine for 3 years. Its ugly now but it still stops arrows. Field points or broadheads.

    If it is just you shooting at the taget to tune your broadheads, just use the cheapo ones from Cabelas. I have yet to wear out mine. I only use it for BH though.

    Hi

    I personally think you should get a deer target to get you use to shooting at one..i use a cheap..makenze backyard buck i bought for around $69
    Your not gonna shoot it much and mine have lasted around 3 years so far.
    I do have 3 of them now so i can set up shots in the woods behind my house.
    Just a thought.:wave:
