Default Which target?

Which target do you use and why? Bag or foam? Which is better for both field points and broadheads?

I use a bag target for field tips and a layered foam target for broadheads. I got to shoot a rhino block recently and it was very nice and could handle both tips.

I use a bag target for field points because the arrows are so much easier to pull out of the target. I use a layered foam target to shoot broadheads, but the bulk of my shooting is with a bag type target.

rhino, but the practice tips are chewing it up pretty quick, about to strap several layers of carpet to the back of the target just to keep them from flying through and hitting the OCB behind. 90 bucks didnt last that long!

I bought *** brand foam layer target for $70 one saturday, after shooting for the weekend and seeing pieces of foam blowing out the back I knew my "4 sided" target was not going to last a year. Needless to say I took it back monday and got me a Rhinehart Rhinoblock. I haven't regretted it a day since. Arrows are a breeze to pull up, the target does a good job of snapping back to form and I truly have 6 sides to shoot at. As with anything, you get what you pay for. If you're going for a disposable target, get a bag they work for what they're meant to do. If you want a quality target that is actually going to make you shoot more (it will) get a Rhinehart.

love my bag tagets for shooting most of the year. I did buy a yellow jacket 4 sided broad head only target this august, and it is JUNK, came apart easily but wort of all is the glue that gets ALL over your your arrows.

Rinehart targets will last the longest. I have a block and like said before huge chunks will pull out with your broadheads. That seems to be the case with most layered foam targets.

McKenzie layered shot blocker! Brand new, only shot a few times, at GOODWILL! For $1! They didn't know what they had! It is light, strong, and easy to pull arrows!!! Did I mention that it cost me $1!

I shoot a bag target with my FTs because of cost and shoot thru small catalogs with my BHs. I have a glendale buck that is fixing to get some BHs shot thru it this weekend.
