    Looking for some targets on Amazon and ran across this self healing foam target (paper target not included)I can't see what speed it is rated for anywhere and was wondering if it would be good to use with my compound bow? I've got a 30" arrow and shoot around 318 fps.

    At a whopping 5cm thick I wouldn’t expect too much out of it particularly at your speeds. May be ok for one of those dime store kids bows but not much more.

    Yeah that's kinda what I was thinking to be honest... I am just looking for a good target without spending an arm and a leg on one. But I guess "you get what you pay for". Any recommendations for a good target out there? I go through a lot of targets due to shooting a lot.

    As thin as it is I would be worried about it standing up. You might get a few shots but after a few grouping sessions I imagine the arrow would zip through.

    Difficult at first but gets better with age. I've never had a problem

    I also tried to save money on different targets and materials. Built several and also bought several. long story short. buy a rhinehart 18-1. you will like it and if you shoot a bunch like me its worth the money in my opinion.

    I like this target... the first one lasted me many many arrows before it started getting soft spots such that my arrows would sink to the fletchings. As long as you don't leave it out in the rain its a decent target but it won't last forever.

    I haven't tried the rinehart, but I can see why (the cost).
