    So im already on my 3rd target this year. I burned threw a bag target. I made the mistake of wasting my money on a "big buck shooter" 3d target. had pass threws on that in a couple weeks, tried fixing it with a can of spray foam. Now im shooting at a Redhead layered foam target, but I dont think this one will last much longer.
    I would like to find a target that lasts at least 6 months. But iv finally gave up on bag targets, and want to find one that will hold up to some use. Any suggestions from daily or weekly shooters?

    Rinehart 18-1 or Rhinoblock. Both will last. Love both mine. You can get an 18-1 for $125 shipped on Ebay.

    18-1 has a 1 year warranty, if you can shoot through all 18 sides in 1 year they will replace it. I have one, have a hard time believing you could shoot through this thing in a year.

    Rinehart gets my vote also. Rinehart is expensive but they will outlast any target out there.

    well lets see. so far this year iv spent $40 on a bag, $85 on a 3d, and $60 on a layered foam target(by next weekend will be shot out). that being said. the rinehart sound very cheap at this point. I cant wait to get mine!

    Another vote for the 18-1 here. It holds up well and is easy to take with you. I have also had great luck with Rinehart's 3D deer targets.

    I shoot both a compressed archery target I built and an 18-1. The 18-1 is an awesome target. I like the carpet target for long range (it's bigger in case I make a less than perfect shot) but you can't shoot broadheads into it. I tried once, once. LOL. I have been shooting that carpet target for 3 years and shoot several times a week and have yet to shoot through it. I just got the 18-1 last fall but it is holding up well too and it has had quite a few broadheads shot into it already.

    GOT MY 18-1 ON SATURDAY! man I have a good feeling about this one. I put a couple hundred arrows in it and it didnt even have a effect on the target. But im hell bent on killing this target before this one year warranty is up. :p

    You seem to have the same luck with targets as me. How is the 18-1 holding up to your abuse?

    You looking for a store bought target or make one yourself? I made one 3' × 3' x 16" deep. The top,sides and bottom are 3/4" plywood. Wrapped it in chicken wire then a junk lumber tarp from the hardware store as the outer skin and packed it full of pieces of plastic(also free from hardware store). Has lasted almost 2 years and still going strong only had to buy the chicken wire. Just need to put a new skin on every so often.
