Rated 5 out of 5 by NC BOWHUNTER GREAT TARGET!
I needed something I could boadhead tune my bow with at 45 yards. Here I had 3 considerations. 1) I needed something big so if I was a bit off it would still impact the target at that range. 2) I needed a target that I could shoot with both field points and broad heads. 3) I wanted something durable. My field points fly straight through my Delta McKenzie foam target after a year of light practice (with mostly field points but a few broadheads here and there).
First, a quick description of broad head turning so you understand the abuse I put this BLOCK B22 through. you can get your broadheads (any broadhead) to impact the same place as your field points by making adjustments to the rest (any rest, whisker biscuit, fall away, any). When you begin you may be a few inches off at 20 yards so you adjust then move back to 30 yards and continue to fine tune. Continue shooting a broadhead followed by field points and fine tuning then moving back. When you hit your maximum range and fine tuned the rest. This took me several hours, but the size of the target allowed for safe impact even with deviations and withstood HOURS of broad head abuse. every day I practice with field points and put the same broadhead on target at various distances just to be confident that when I put one on an animal it will hit just where I want. I am confident that this target will withstand several thousand shots from a combination of broadheads and field points over the next two years before I wear it out.
Obviously, the designs on 4 sides give you plenty of things to aim at and the high contrast black and white is very visible at a distance. This material is not the same as the Delta McKenzie foam, the DM foam turns black once you shoot it and quickly obscures the point of aim. This is much more durable. It will still leave a mark, but the hole seals up better leaving more white area.

Been shooting Archery for the past 20 years. This is the best target I've bought regardless of price. Easy removal and stands up to fast bows. Have shot o/a 500 arrows into this from a PSE DNA at 70 pounds over the past two months and it shows no significant signs of wearing down. Great target.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bow Sniper Really Nice Target
I have not had it long enough to test for longevity, but field tips remove easily from the block. It is light enough to bring in out of the weather after shooting (the built in handle is great)and store out of the way. The size is great for novice shooters as well as veteran longer range practice. I am shooting against a black backstop, so it tends to blend in a little, but a paper target taped to it works great. If you push the tied off portion of a small (2" or 3") balloon into an existing hole, it will hold the balloon and makes a GREAT target to focus on.
