Default Target recommendations

I am shooting easton axis with the hit insert. I was recommended to shoot with the easton broadhead adaptor rings to protect the end of the carbon shaft. With the rings I have to use 11/32 field points. I learned the hard way to not shoot them into a bag target! I can shoot them into my yellow jacket broadhead target but they are hard to remove. Just looking for a good target that is easy to remove the arrows with this kind of setup Name:  20190729_191819.jpg

I picked up a dice target made by morrel. It works good easy removal of arrows, but still barely stops my Full Throttles arrows. Is the only complaint.

I don't have one, but I hear the Block 6x6 is pretty good for easy arrow removal. I personally shoot the Rinehart Rhino Block. I wouldn't say its "easy" to pull the arrows, but it is one tough target and I expect it to last me at least a year or so. Even longer with the replaceable insert.

Rinehart 18 in 1s are super nice and last forever!

Try soaping your arrow, it might help enough that your current target will work

No reason to shoot the rings with field points. Why endure pain you donít need to. Have shot Axis for 10+ years and never once used the BARs. Never had a shaft split on end either. The BARs are only necessary for IMO poorly designed broadhead ferrules which have a small chamfer on them. And for those who didnít chamfer their arrows correctly to begin with.

The 18 in 1 is the only target I can get more than 6 weeks out of. I'll shoot a block out in a month..
I shoot axis arrows. If you use the 9/32 field tips you don't need the adapter.. I don't use the adapter with broadheads and I've never had a problem..

Ditch the BAR, you don’t need them.

Yeah ditch the BAR. Shoot regular field points for 5mm arrows and if you want to use the BAR with your broadheads sight in with them on. To be fair, easton axis donít come out of many targets easily
