Very nice. Those maximas were running about 12 dollars apiece though. Last one I did went right through the bull dog collar without cracking it all the way through. I generally shoot at different dots also but wanted to check a grouping. HD.

Default Pains me

Watching those ten dollar bills floating out into the air.

Small targets of an accurate shooter produce Robin Hoods.

I would have had a few if I shot at a public range. But I also used a target with small stickers and could accurately place one arrow in a "target." I made. Never went for groupings. Showing off has it's cost.

Shot mostly a private range, where walking back and forth was part of the exercise. But that can happen if you're shooting alone. And my shooting came down to one shot accuracy. Somehow I avoided the Robin Hoods, knowing it was as much luck as one shooter at a private range can get.

I basically went by: groups work good with bullets; groups don't don't work too good with arrows that you expect to use again.

Costly. Now, in all my years of shooting in organized archery (57 now) I have ONE. B/4 5 spot targets we shot 1 bull. Now, I owned 2 shops/lanes for nearly 20 years. I have no idea how many indoor/outdoor shoots + indoor/outdoor leagues I have attended. I have posted indoor 300s, outdoor field 560s & animal outdoor 560s. Those are all perfect scores. I have destroyed nearly a Dz. arrows in an indoor tournament-blowing the ends off my shafts but not a Robin Hood. I think it was mostly the way aluminum shafts were made back in the day & no, I don't feel cheated. I have seen archers (back then) stack 5 arrows in the spot & a quarter would almost cover them but NO Robin Hoods. Lot's of busted nocks & blown ends of shafts. Sorry to ramble.
Enjoy your excellent shooting & be glad we now have the 5 spot targets.
