What is a good target for a fast bow? Right now i have a Cabelas target, not even sure what it is called, but it is like a nylon sack with a bucnh of cloth stuffing, and my dads razortech is shooting through it almost every shot, I was wondering if the Black hole is a good target? Thanks

The black hole is said to be a horrible target. They said you bury your arrows up the the fletchings and then after a little while you shoot through. I have the block and love it.

I agree with zak123 get a block target use field points only when you shoot broadheads use american whitetail target called the cube.. last for years for both of them......

Hey, thanks a lot, the black hole was the only one i could think of, the one that i was thinking about getting was the block, that is proabably what i will get. Thanks

I have a block and I like it! It's a really good target.

for the last time THE BLOCK and THE BLACK HOLE are made by the SAME COMPANY, the layers just run opposite ways
i like my Black Hole - only had it one year, but don't see any reason it won't last for many more

I have a Black Hole and it works just fine. We shoot Legacys at 300 fps and my dads cross bow at 318 fps don't shoot through it.

I bought the Block a year ago. I shoot right through it. I finally had to put in front of my bag target to use my bag target as a backstop for the block.
I like the concept of the block target, I guess I need one that is thicker or something[:'(]

I have Morrell's Bionic Buck, and really enjoy it. If your looking for a lifelike or semi-lifelike 3D target, the Bionic buck is the way to go. Yes, it is true, you can pull the arrows out with one finger. I've shot it quite a bit. I'm shooting about 290, but I have friends who shoot Hoyts and Mathews that do not shoot threw it. If you ever were to have a pass threw on it, you can stuff it with old cotton rags and that eliminates the problem.

My $0.02
