Crossbow Broadhead Target
« on: January 14, 2017, 09:01:56 AM »
Finally made the plunge and shelled out $100 for the Block crossbow broadhead target. The reviews of the others said they had to cut their bolts to get them out so I was hesitant to shell out $ 50.00 for a target that would end of eating expensive bolts. This target had good reviews. I used it for the first time yesterday and it worked great. Had to use an arrow puller to start them but then I cold grip them and pull them out. I was only shooting 20 yards with 350 fps Barnett Brotherhood crossbow so I was pretty close. Anyways, I am happy with the purchase. I did find out that the broadheads were slightly off from the field points.

I like the Block too. It is hard to get the bolts out sometimes , but it stops the arrow. @--0--0118

I had a Block for a crossbow and my bow blew right through the target. I use a Yellow Jacket bag and have no problem.

I recently bought The Wedge.  Stops Xbow bolts no problem. And very easy to remove them. I like it a lot. $50 at Academy. Not sure about broadheads though. I don't shoot broad heads at my targets .

I have the Yellow Jacket for my main target and for my discharge target and they work super. Very easy to pull the bolt out and I never use broad heads so that isn't an issue. I shoot open on impact and either assume they are on or shoot the practice blade that comes with it and that pulls out easily as well.

Yellow Jacket for me. The block did not take long  blow up and just with field points! My crossbow broadheads comes with a practice broadhead. I sight in LaserLyte crossbow sighting device. Set the zero with the laser and my Crossbow scope,  shoot the practice broadhead at the target. Pretty soon I can almost do a Robin Hood, thankfully never, as that woukd be expensive!
