Default Need A New Bow Target

I have had a Block for about 3 years but needing to get a new target. Was thinking about getting another Block since I've had good experience, but am wondering how it compares to the Rhinehart or similar type targets? I would appreciate any opinions/recommendations.

I have the Block black and the Rhinehart. Where you really notice the difference is when you shoot broadheads. My Block black has a big hole in center whereas my Rhinehart has nothing missing from it and I have shot it a lot with broadheads. Get you the Rhinehart block.

FYI. Get some expanding foam and fill the block up. I got another year out of mine that way. Just replaced it after 4 years.

Rhinehart get's my vote. My block lasted me many years of abuse and finally gave out two years ago. I bought the 18-1 and it is awesome. I love all the different targets on it, and it seems like it should last a really long time. Harder to remove the arrows right now. But so was my block when I first got it. I'm sure it will break in and be easier before long.

I bought a Rhinehart cube type target a couple of weeks ago from Camofire. It has some cosmetic flaws but still is a good deal. I have an old 18-1 at the lease that I've had for several years that has given me good service.

HIPS targets- 100% USA made materials and a TX company.
Watch the comparison video vs other blocks.
I shoot bh's and field tips in mine. A child can pull them out fairly easy.

You need to check out Hips Archery Targets here in TX. For field points they make awesome targets. Not sure if they have broad-head things yet...

I'm on hips prostaff and have some serious hitting power with my really long draw length. They stand up to my heavy shooting. I'm going on 8000 shots on my grizzly and about 10k on my herd bull in the last year.

The way the target is built is with heat welded blocks, no glue what so ever. You can shoot all 6 sides without fear of any soft spots or the target blowing up. Even if you shoot a big huge hole in the plastic cover it might not look pretty but it will not affect stopping power.

The trick to longevity with this as with any target is spreading your shots around, and not shooting groups.

Pm me and I'll send you a promo code

I forgot to say, you can shoot broadheads and field points into the same target at the same time

Hips!! Hands down,no better target for the money! Easy arrow removal, shoot field points,broadheads and 6 sides to shoot. Each side has a diffrent target to shoot at. Plus your supporting Texas,USA when ya buy one. Ive got the Muley and ive put close to 2,000 field point shots into it and probably around 2 dozen broadhead shots,both fixed and mechanical. Still stops my micro shafts!!

What's up with Hips? I've tried to buy 2 targets this summer and both orders were cancelled. I contacted them and they said they were having some problems but they would contact me when they were available again.

Never heard back so I ended up buying a Rhinehart XL.

I bought a Morrell's Yellow Jacket 350 and so far it's great for field tips. If I shoot a broadhead will it not just blow right through the bag and leave a big hole? I guess I should have asked this before I bought it smh

Not sure what the deal with ordering from hips but they are legit. I bought mine from amazon two years ago and it seems like it’s still brand new. I probably don’t shoot as often as a lot of folks but it has served me well and I will buy another when it wears out.

Rhinehart 18-1 has lasted me 3 years of heavy broadhead usage. Still stops them but starting to get hung in core. Will be field point only now and replaced by a new 18-1. Think I bought it on sale for around $65-$75 bucks

This is clearly the best option, you will not have to worry about buying a new target for several years and end up saving money. You'll be shooting while the rest of your archery buddies are creating threads on the hunting forums asking about what target they should get next.

I can't make a bag target last. I shred them in months time. It's just the nature of being a long armed archer

yeah I don't know about all that and what not. I shoot a lot and have over 7+k arrows in my third hand rag bag this year. pretty good ROI on a 15 dollar bag stuffed with shrink wrap and old clothes.

I've got an original "no pok-r" target that I got from Tim Whiteford over 40 years ago... Back then, they used 100% cotton fiber and some "baffle" material in the middle... There's got to be a million shots in this thing and I've recovered it with a "toe" sack probably 10 or 12 times... Sucker still works!! I've had other bag targets with all sorts of stuffing in 'em and they didn't last long either...

OP, I now shoot a Reinhardt block mainly because I bought it when my wife had to switch to a crossbow after a broken wrist a few years ago... Her crossbow blew right through my block with broadheads... This Reinhardt has thousands of shots in it and it has held up very well...

Whatever you get, do 2 things to help make it last longer... 1. rotate the sides to spread your shots around as evenly as you can and 2. store it indoors out of the sunlight...
