Default Block 4x4?

Was wondering if any one uses this target and how well it holds up.

Extremely well. The "Easy Arrow Removal" isn't as easy as I would of liked but it is a lot better than most targets.

The advertisement on the Outdoor Channel for the Morrell targets is a pretty accurate assessment of the economy of the Block 4 X 4. For the same money as the Block, you can get a Morrell bag target - where arrow removal is actually easy and target life is almost unlimited - and a broadhead target - which you need only infrequently. The other issue with the Block is the big mess they leave in your yard once they start to get kinda shot up. Little green foam strips laying everywhere.

I blew my block 4x4 apart very quickly. Not a bad target, but if you really want to get a lot of life out of it you'll end up using spray painting and putting your own dotsor diamonds where it it not shot up.

For Broadheads the Cube is a much better target.

I have a Block 4x4 and it has held up really well. I have shot Magnus Stingers into it a bunch of times (ensuring my bow was in tune - broadheads vs field tips). Now, I just practice with it shooting field tips over and over.

The 4x4 block is a good field point target. Repeated broadhead shots just reduce it to shreds fast. And for the money the cabelas broadhead targets not bad for broadhead practice. The 18+1 Rhinehard is working out pretty good for both.

I am not as impressed as I thought I would be, broadheads don't remove as easy as advertised and foam comes out with the broadhead

I shoot a lot of arrows per week! My block is starting to show some serious wear and tear! My arrows from my Longbow are starting to pass thru in a few spots! My next practice target will be a Morrell bag of some sort for field tips and maybe another Block for just broadheads, or the Cube!
