Default Bass Pro's $30 Block Rip-off?

Has anyone tried it or know anyone who has it? I need a new target so I can get off the dang comp up here in MO and shoot my bow. I just want to get outside and do something.

The funds are extremely low (extremely) and I wouldn't pay $100 for a Block anyways.

The Bass Pro special, is it worth 30 bucks. That's all I'm asking.

Ive seen it while i was at bass pro and it looked alright. Probably wont last as long as the block, but should be able to take a few hundred shots. For 30 bucks id buy one if i needed a target

The guy in the archery shop at BPS told me not to get one if you are shooting over 260fps,or eventually you'll bury the arrows up to the fletchings,and start ruining your arrows.I trust him.I was going to buy it,but he changed my mind.Another guy on a different site bought one,and he said his fletchings were getting dangerously close,but he still liked it.He said the broadheads werehard on it.

If you are shooting broadheads get the Morrel's Yellow Jacket Broadhead Target.

If you are shooting field tips get the Morrel's Quick Stop.

Go to wal mart and check out the 4 x 4 target. After shipping from Bass Pro, that $30 target will be closer to $50 or $60.

Josh,
I have the 4X4 from Walmart. The broadhead side is OK. The fieldpoint side is horrible. I literally had to stand on the thing to get the arrows out. maybe it will loosen up after a lot of shots but for now it's not working
