I wouldn't get a bag target for broadheads. It'd be too much of a pain removing them and they would chew up the bag pretty quick. I shot mine with a Muzzy 4 blade and it looks like a 12ga slug hit it. [&:]

Honestly, I have 2 targets. I use a bag for field points and I have a cheapo foam target from Walmart for broadheads. Broadheads chew up targets so quickly I can't see spending alot of money on them.

I recently bought the Block. Man is that a nice target. I've shot many regular targets before and every once in awhile the arrows would just get stuck in them and then when I finally would get them out the tip would be ripped out and stuck in the target. The Block is excellent. It's easy to get the arrows out and is easier to carry around than those bigger targets.

You could always build your own.

what type of material did you use to make the target? i have been looking to do the same and just not sure what to use. ive also thought of trying to fill mine, i have a block that is 4foot tall and like 3 feet wide. and the middle is all tore up so i was thinking of filling it with that expandable spray foam.

Here is a link. Hope it helps. the target stops everything I can through at it. But remember that I only use aluminums. I don't know how hard it would be to pull out carbons, but I'm sure it would stop them. Let me know if you have any other questions that the link does not address.

I've given the thumbs UP to the Morrell Yellow Jacket (Broadheadtarget)before and I'll say it again. I find it much better than the Block. Much cheaper too. Much less weight also! For the $$$ it can't be beat.

doefever, have you tried the morrell six shooter? How does it compare to the yellow jacket? I was very disappointed with the six shooter.

I use the Deadstop Quad. It is very durable, but you aren't supposed to shoot broadheads in it.
