Morrell Yellow Jacket Bag Field Point Target
Best Fieldtip Target on market
Purchased this target last year and have to say I couldn't be happier. Have put thousands of arrows into it and it is holding up well. Still stopping arrows with no problems only starting to show wear. For the price I don't think you will find a better deal.
I already have 3 other friends that were shooting at mine and have gone out and purchased one for themselves.

Target for the money
I have this same target and shoot it almost everyday now for a year and a half. We have just now started going through it. I would recommend this target for any compund bow. My 6 year old girl and my 2 year old boy can pull my arrows out without any problem. Great target for the money!!!!

Good choice for money
I have had my Morrell Yellow Jacket for about 6 months. I shoot a high performance 70lb compound with carbon arrows. I have used other bag targets before and here are my thoughts on this model.
First, quality of construction. This target does have a high quality of construction, very stout and a bit on the heavy side for its size. The weight tends to be caused, I believe, by the amount of internal material. I find the jellow jack bee cartoon a bit distracting on the target center as I prefer just the spots. A deer vital on the reverse side would be a nice touch. This is a high quality piece based on construciton.
Second, performance. With multiple shots from my bow, I have found the stopping power to be superb compared to others in this price rage. Other bag targets I've owned tend to bulge in back which causes target distortion. I believe this lack of target bulge is due to the "floating core." Arrow pull is good with some resistence. Target tends to leave plastic shreds on the arrows which are easily removed but can be a nucience. As with all bag targets, repeated shots into one spot will eventually cause the arrows to stick out the other side pushing out the inner linings. Change aim points and on occassion, step on the reverse side to re-compress the internal layers.
Overall, this target is good priced for what it does compared to others in its class, although no target is perfect. If you are considering a $30 bag target, spend the extra $10 on this target and vary your aim point for longevity. I've bought several Delta brand bag targets in this price range, which are good also, but the ones I've used tend to distort as I mentioned above. Do not use broad heads on this target as the blades will cut the fibers and cause considerable damage. I would purchase a broadhead specific target to do this.

best field piont target ever
I have had my yellow jacket target for over a year now shooting an aver age of 800+ arrows a month into it at distances form 10 to 80 yards. The target is deformed and bag is ready to come apart but still stops arrows out of my 70lb X-Froce at 340fps and easy to remove. This is the only archery target that has lasted more that 2 months for me.
