Rinehart Targets 18-1 Portable Archery Targets
I have tried almost every other archery target on the market and so far Rinehart is quite superior in every way. I have bought Rinehart targets for years and do not intend to switch. Regards, Bill

I think this is a great target, and it looks great, but I didn't realize how small it was until I saw it at the store. It's not too small, but not as near as big as i thought it was.

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.
