    Just an FYI update: I ended up buying two targets since my last post, both thru Sportsman's Guide.

    One was an American Whitetail Hybrid King, with intent to use it mostly for broadheads......which may be a good thing, because the 9-10 shots I put in it with field points took some real effort to pull. Woody's lube I use on 3D targets might help that.
    Still a nice target that will likely travel to camp sites with me.

    Side note: I thought the 9" depth might let it tip over on high shots. (3) 20yds shots with 69ft/lbs KE in top center diamond did rock it, but it stayed upright on a level platform.

    The other one was a Big Green Stopper bag target for my field/target points. I'm really liking this one so far in the two weeks I've been shooting at it.
    Quickly stops my arrows, and the small diameter 80KE darts a friend shoot out of his Hoyt Carbon Element.

    I shoot the cabelas arrow hawk target. It has held up very well over the last 5 years but I don't shoot broad heads into it only field points.

    These are pretty nice and the price is nice as well. I had one last season and it worked great for field tips and broad heads.

    I just got a redhead, its heavy, but kind of top heavy. Bag type with soft foam frame in bag.

    Did shoot at the block and a spiderweb at Scheels a week ago, I almost bought the spiderweb. About 3" less penetration the block, and pull out with no effort. But, $140 I think.

    My brothers block is getting crumbly, sitting outside too long. But good for broadheads yet, just messy.

    Very good answer Spiker! I like it!

    Let me restate the question, what differentiates field point target construction from broadhead target construcion? I'm talking about the inanimate kind Spiker!
