i think the majority of targets are now made for broadheads and field tips. I know basspro is having a sale on their website now, but not for sure if there are targets.

I bought the cheap black BassPro foam target this past summer and it was junk. By the third day, my arrows were going completely through it. Spend the extra $ for a well know brand (ie Block).

exactly how big is the 18-1?? it says 15x15x15 but if thats the whole thing then one "square" is not very big at all...im deciding between a "block" target and the 18-1 now...thanks
