Rinehart Targets Archery Field Target
Have only used fields tips so far!!!!!!! Just bought the RFT and shot it for about an hour. I must say really impressed with the memory response and how it bounces right back. Also very happy with how easy arrow removal was. One bad thing is that at 25 yards I was shooting it allot so the ball was moving allot which cause me to split two arrows "my fault" shot way to many arrows in at once but the ball will move on you. I place the ball in the sand in front of an old target that I had in the backyard. Perfect when traveling to a hunt and doing some last minute shooting to check out your bow before walking in the woods. Also perfect for just shooting in the backyard for target practice. Excellent target, great job Rinehart.

Great for He-Man
Ok, I broke an arrow by side-slicing it with another arrow. My lesson learned. Shoot one, maybe two. Walk, retrieve, throw, shoot, repeat. Sounds simple enough, right?
Wrong. I am a 32 year old, 225lbs fit military member and I have to literally sit on the ground, put the target between my legs or feet, and pull with all my strength to get the arrow out of this target. I shoot archery for relaxation, not a hernia.
I am shooting a 2012 Hoyt Vector 32 at around 65lb draw weight, so that may have something to do with it.
If you are shooting a high FPS bow, steer clear.

I like the idea of this target, but its hard to keep it from spinning. My arrows enter about 6 inches and after breaking 4 arrows, I'm afraid of shooting more than 1 at a time. When arrows make contact the ball spins about 90 degrees making the odds of hitting the last arrow you shot, which is now horizontally crossing your sight plane inside the center of the target, pretty good. Its just not heavy enough to keep from spinning, and I wish I had purchased a heavier target. I would allready be ahead $ wise after replacing arrows.

Good target but....
This is another solid target from Rinehart, stops the every arrow you shoot at it. Lightweight and portable, but it really can't be used as described. You can't just chuck this target out in the yard and shoot at it and expect to get much practice. Because of how light it is, once you shoot it, the ball will flip over with the only thing stopping it being your arrow. No problem if you are just shooting one arrow, but if you need to make some bow changes you are going to be there a while.
