3-D targets?

731 Views 9 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  sj_lutz
Im looking for a 3-D target and i'm wondering if it matters if i just go with one of the cheaper ones to start out with or if the more expensive ones really are better quality. Will i have to replace the inserts of the cheaper ones more often? I guess I'm asking if 3-d targets are a product where you really "get what you pay for" ..

Any suggestions?

3D targets really are what you pay for ! I would go to Rinehart targets for the longevity and easy pull they last for a long time!

My new 3-D target

They are out of stock right now, but I just got a Glen Del Orig Buck that was suppose to be blemished for a great deal on the Sportsmansguide website. $107.97 after club discount. I don't see a single blemish on it and I can order replacement vitals if I want. I'll try to add a pic. If it works you might notice that today at 20 yds I did a Robin Hood arrow shot. One inside the other.

So does the actual target itself really matter if I'm going to have replacement vitals anyway?

for instance.. if theres a buck for $107, and another for $170 and they both take $20 replacement vitals. Is the cheaper one going to fall apart in a month? Do they not stand up as well to weather conditions?

yes it does matter because of the effects of the weather and shooting, The rinehart targets cores last 3 times longer then any other on the market! next would be the Mckenzie targets, and delta would be last on the list for longevity or with standing weather!

Archery Target

I'd try the R & W Targets. They last longer than any other target on the market right now. Their cost is reasonable. I use them for my personal shooting and our club has a whole range of them along with some of the other company targets. The R & W have long outlasted the others and they look so realistic. I don't think you will go wrong with them.

I think the scoring rings on the R&W's leave a bit to be desired. They also tend to look blobish (imho) even at 20 yards. They do seem to hold up pretty well tho.

I've got a Cabelas turkey in the back yard, not a super target, but I feel I've got my money's worth out of it. It took a pretty decent pounding back in the spring, with field tips and broadheads, still looks decent, and it stops whatever I throw at it. Pretty sure it will need to be retired before the end of next years turkey season tho.
