    I've had good luck with the Block and Block Fusion. Also heard & read good things on the Spyderweb target.

    Spyder web targets are one of the most expensive. The blob is another, then the block. We make most of our own. For the simple reason they all were out after a while of shooting. Except the Spyder web, but at the price of them who can afford them.

    Mckenzie shot blocker and the black hole are a couple more layered foam targets. They will wear quick and sliver badly w bh's though.

    Whatever you do, stay away from the $20 styrofoam target wrapped in a plastic covering. I got one at Dick's because I was new and didn't know any better, and after 40 shots I had pass throughs and had to go find the arrows in the grass behind the target. They also catch a lot of wind and blow around and fall over quite a bit.

    You might also consider American Whitetail Archery Targets (http://www.archerytargets.com/). I bought one of their bag targets after talking with the owner and have not regretted it. It's filled with cloth pieces and stops arrows quite nicely and removing arrows is really easy. And if/when you put enough holes in the bag cover you can order a replacement cover, slip it over the old one and keep on using the target - you don't have to discard it and buy another. They also make a good and affordable, multiple density vertical layered foam target for broadheads that holds up well and doesn't shred badly.

    What my friend and I have both used is the yellow bag you get at Wal-Mart. I believe it's a BushMaster. Deer's head on one side and 9 or 12 circles on the other. Cost is about $25 and are pretty durable. They've served us well with a lot of practice at 10-60yds.
