Hey folks,

I need a new broadhead target. Who makes the best ones out there (quality and durability)? I practice anywhere from 20 yards out to 50 yards normally so it's got to be big enough for longer distance practice.

Secondly my friend needs a new bag target for field point practice. Again who makes a realy good bag target?

Thanks!

I checked out the blob target and it seems good. What is arrow removal like on these targets?

Thanks!

I use the Morrell bag target and a King's broadhead target. Fairly happy with both.

For field points the Morrell Outdoor Range. I have had mine for many years and have not shot through it yet after probably tens of thousands of shots. Big and heavy though, I made a wooden frame with wheels to make it easier to move in and out of the shed.

Hands down the Blob for broadheads! Very durable and arrow removal is easy. I've tried the block targets, morrell yellow jacket and the Mckenzie shot blocker and they are junk compared to the blob.

i checked out their website and I was struck by something. The photos I saw DID NOT have any small circles (or bullseyes) on the face of the target. So what do you aim at? They had a list of different shapes and sizes. I clicked on every image and could not see any aiming points on the face of the target. Am I wrong?

Thanks again!

john f,

which are you talking about?

The blobs, you just take a spray can to those anyway you want it.

Blobs are a great BH target.

I've been out of the bag target loop because I buy the covers on here and stuff my own.

How heavy are the Blob targets, say the 24" x 24" x 12"? Due to my small backyard, I need to haul to the open woods in a 4-door hatchback (Prius 2004) plus my bow case.

About 70 pounds. I hauled mine behind the house with my lawn mower.

The blob is especially great for broadheads. the are easy to remove. Field points are a little tougher until you get the target shot in.

70 lbs is pretty heavy, but do-able.

The 24" x 24" x 8" should be pretty good and lighter, I imagine, right? I shoot Gold Tip Expedition Hunters (5575) traveling at 240 feet per second. I mostly shoot Field Points, but wish to shoot Broadheads.

I use a Rhino 18-1 for broadheads. For a bag target I bought a target cover and stuffed it myself. I bought a Morrell and didn't get 3 months out of it.

The blob is great. They will take hundreds of thousands of shots, even when they get shot up they still stop your arrow. Just get your self some woodys arrow lube and an arrow puller and you will be good to go.
