I have the escal tool, works nice. Wipe your arrows with some jig-a-loo (I mean a little) and they pull out of your target slicker than snot! I can see where a deep embedded arrow would be tough to pull out, even at the cost of a nock. Cossack2's tool looks sweet also. Can you say Fab-shop??
Just get a rag bag target and use two fingers as a puller. Just a hint....make sure your target heads are smaller than you arrow shaft diameter.....if larger it acts as a barb......making the arrow harder to remove.
Actually the pliers work if you can see the back of the arrow IN the target, Just grab the back of the arrow with them. If you cant see it, not just push it back a bit or, at worse, pull it out the back. Have used both.
