Rinehart Targets 18-1 Portable Archery Targets
I will start off by saying I own a Barnett Vengeance crossbow that shoots 365fps. I am adding this fact just because I don't know how this target would react otherwise.
I will never forget the first day I shot the target. I shot three bolts in a tight group pattern, and the bolts entered the target about 6 inches deep. I was using target practice heads. When I went to retrieve the bolts, I had absolutely no chance of pulling them out by hand. Keep in mind I am 6'3" tall and 260 pounds..
To keep a long story short I ended up having to take a towel, wrapping it around the end of the bolts, then using a pair of vise grips to finally pull them out.
After this, I tried shooting at the target with the field tip slightly damp with water – that did not work. Secondly, I tried to using oil on the field tip– That did make it easier and I was able to pull it out by hand.
So in my opinion, if you're willing to constantly put oil on your arrowheads if you're shooting anything with a high velocity, this is your target. It will last you a long time.
As for me, one of the worst purchases I've made. I hope this helps.

Good! But could be better
I like my target but, the only downside to it is that i have to put my foot on it and pull with 2 hands to remove my arrows. It might be because it is brand new..Im not too sure.

After reading some of the reviews about how hard it was to get arrows out after shooting, I was kinda skeptical, but today after taking my first shots into the target not only was it easy to get the arrows out WITHOUT the arrow fluid (I used a fivics arrow puller) but the target looked like I never shot into it! stops my arrows from going all the way thru at point blank range, this target does everything it says it will do...no complaints here! considering this review is after just the first shots I'll post another after some good use has been put into it....

I heard lots of good things about this target from the guys at BP Tulsa. It's all true, very durable. I ve got 4 people shooting at it and no signs of breaking down. Wish I would have bought it first before buying those cheaper targets
