Rated 5 out of 5 by BosTex Great Target
My daughter is 11 years old and has a Genesis compound bow. This target is perfect for backyard practice. She has not had any problems with arrows penetrating the target or pulling the arrows out of the target. I purchased this target because of the large size, thickness and price. Very happy with the purchase and only time will tell how long it will last.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Not Happy Disappointed Daughter
My daughter loves her recurve bow and wanted a bigger target. I bought this target and more field point target arrows for her to use. 98% of her arrows just bounce off the target. After moving closer and trying different angles she still wasn't able to get any to penetrate the cover. So I decided to give it a whirl and really pull back on her bow. The arrow just bounced off and even came back towards us. After about 20 tries I was able to get one to stick. If this target isn't made for average field point arrows is should have a label on it or even suggest what type of arrow this is made for. The employee who sold this to me along with the arrows should have mentioned that the arrows would not be sticking to this target. He probably didn't know any difference. I guess I should have went to a real archery store in the first place.

Seems to be just cardboard and foam underneath the nice cover. It seems to me that the thickness of the cardboard varies from target to target; and even within a single target itself. I use a 60# traditional longbow. My son uses a 40# recurve. Neither of us have tried a compound bow yet. My arrows usually stick. About 30% from his recurve bounce off, depending where you hit the cardboard underneath. It seems inconsistent. No trouble at all with anything passing through the target. but we're only 170fps at the top end. It may also depend on the quality of your field point. Some of the duller points well tend to bounce off. The target is huge, so it's great for longer distances or novices who don't want to lose as many arrows, but next time I'll spend $20 more for a better target -or- $20 less for a similar low end target.

The target has nice flat sides and a large target side and four small targets on the opposite side. It also has two top loop hooks to keep it secured.

by Cappy good target for low poundage bows
I bought this target for the size and price.I wanted an extra target for me and my wife to shoot at. I left the store thinking I could shoot at this not seeing the one side that said "youth target" so my arrows went through.
Great for my wife and grandson to shoot at but i'll stay away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Archer Great target for youth
I bought the target for my son's 9th birthday. His has gotten progressively better with his new bow. The target is large enough that when his aim is off, he can still hit the target area and not lose his arrows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jenpete4 Good value
We bought this target for our eight-year old, who recently received his first archery set. He did not want a target that looked like an animal, so this one was perfect. It is sturdy, but lightweight, and he has really enjoyed playing with it.
