Rated 5 out of 5 by Templar527 Tough Target
This target block is tough to say the least. I really like how well it stops my xbow and upright bow projectiles. It has enough mass to not move around a lot. This target has outlasted my father's bag type target with 4x as many shots. The handle in the top makes carrying very easy. Some people have complained that the arrows are difficult to remove from the target. I agree that the arrows are a little stiff to remove and I do have to use my gloves to get a grip. On the other hand I think some guys need to stop whining and man up on this thing. When I remove my arrows/bolts I lay mine on the ground with the arrows/bolts facing up and place my knees on the top face of the target and I pull them out without too much problem. The question you need to ask before buying this target is: "Do I want a cheap target that is easy to remove arrows but wears out quickly OR do I want a target that is a little difficult to remove the arrows, but will last 5-10x as long?" I plan on buying another one when my current one wears out . . . which will probably be a couple years from now. Also, understand that 95% of my shots have been field tips. Broadheads do considerably more damage but the target has been resilient.

Rated 1 out of 5 by urfriend Would not suggest this target !!
I bought this target for my son for X-mas, it stops bolts from the Barnet Jackel cross bow that I also purchest for him (great Cross bow for the money). But have a hard time getting bolts out of the target. it takes both of my teenage sons to hold the target and me to pull them out. And having to pull them by the fletching just to get enough grip to get them out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tenpointhunter Stops bolts no problem
This target stops bolts from my turbo xlt no problem. Some bolts seem to stick requiring more effort than others to release. Bolts leave holes in exterior of target so longevitiy will be interesting. seems stable when bolts hit. like the option of differing sides to shoot at.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bwana49 Arrows to hard to remove
The Block stopped the arrows with no problem, but it did not want to release them. I had to stand on it and use two hands to pull them loose. After shooting 3 sets of 3 arrows tipped with field points I gave up and switched back to a "bag" target.
