What Broad head targets do you guys use?
With what success and longevity have you had with it?
What would you recommend?
Hutch I use a black hole target that cost about $50 bucks, once I start having issue I use crack filler form and shoot it into the bad areas, and it will last for years as crack fill about $6 bucks a can. Also use on my 3D targets. I will take a photo once it stops snowing. I spoke too soon as we have about six inches on the ground and another eight or so tonight. Not as bad as you folks on the east coast. But over 7000ft it just doesn’t go away really fast.

Hutch, the best I have found so far is a Rinehart I found on sale. It was a factory second, but performs very well. Just mismatched seams, etc. Try Sportsmansguide.com. Mine's an 18X18X14 block, and it stops everything. Little tough to pull field points, but stops BH's dead. Normally $89, but the seconds are on sale for around $45-48. They also have factory seconds on 3D deer targets. $80. Got one of them as well, works just as well. Been shooting one all summer and fall, and it works just like new. It has about 40 BH shots in one spot, and still not chunking out or splintering.

Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.
X2 on the Rhinehart. I've only got one season on mine, but it has worn well. It has a replaceable core for broadheads, and the other sides are for field tips. I'll last a long time I think.

I have the 22" Black Block. It is great at first, but the slick tricks are taking a bigtime toll on it. The square edges on the back of the broadheads really chunk out the foam if the broadhead does not come out perfectly. Advertising/commercials are miss leading! Otherwise it is great for field tips. Going Reinhardt next time for broadhead target. Lots of good reviews on the 18-1 target.

I have a old McKenzie Ram. Big sucker with their awesome core of old. I only need a few shots every now and then. Using up expensive broadheads is not conductive for the well being of my billfold.
Evidently I tune my bow well enough that I've never had to tune for fixed broadheads to impact with my field points. 3 years or thereof I shot NAPs high tech looking Braxe and then this year my bride bought some of these el cheapo, $10/3, Realtrees in 2 different styles and both did what they were supposed to this year. Couldn't hardly believe what the Realtree forums had to say about these cheapo heads. Like good for nothing, maybe squirrels on a good day.
