Rated 5 out of 5 by lipomaman Great indoor or outdoor
I set this target up diagonally across the garage for a just over 10 yd shot with a 50lb PSE stinger X. Able to practice and the arrows just barely go through the back of the taget near the sides. So I try to shoot center shots so as not to have the field tips hit concrete. After a hundred or so arrows, it's holding up well. Have not tried with broadheads, so can't speak to how it'll hold up. I plan to shoot at it out of my tree stand soon and expect it to work well. Good price compared to local sports stores. Recommended.

Twelve and nine year old's were piercing through foam and cardboard...thus putting marks in my fence. Not anymore, thanks to this Black Hole. Considering another one. Like that we can place them anywhere, and store it while not practicing Archery Which is why I am considering a second target.

Rated 4 out of 5 by archerstarter Performs as it should!
Using a 40# recurve with field points, the target works well. While light and portable, it stands up to the arrow hits, stops the arrows and allows easy arrow removal. Coloring could have been brighter and would be nice to have target spots on both sides. Price and shipping were a great deal.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ArrowKing To Weak 4 Crossbolts
Be prepared to ruin any arrows shot at this target with 350+ FPS crossbows using broad-heads. My Barnett 365 FPS sent the bolts through the target with less than an inch of the arrow showing at 25 yards. At 40 yards penetrated to base of 4" vanes. Didn't completely tear off the vanes, but rendered them to useless for hunting. Using new Muzzy crossbolt broadheads 125 grain. Guess you'd have to shell out serious bucks to get a quality crossbolt target to withstand the higher FPS most crossbows produce.
The free shipping from L.L. Bean was excellent. Received target inside outter box, in good condition, within 5 days.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ultra88 Not as advertised
The target face was painted a pale white, hard to see and the target itself was not square, one side was two inches higher than the other. The material would have worked for target practice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by diulin Lightweight, durable, good price
Nice, lightweight target. I like the fact that, unlike my bag targets, it doesn't absorb and hold water. It would not be appropriate for a crossbow, and I don't even know about a very high-poundage compound bow. It's fine for my 60-pound Hoyt, but at 20 yards, the arrows do come about 1-2 inches out the back (which created a bit of a problem at first, since I had put the target right up against a wall).

This is much bigger and sturdier than I expected. We haven't used it yet, but as it is, it's very impressive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Catahoula Nice target for the price
I was skeptical when I bought this target due to it's low cost as compared to some of the others but I'm pretty happy with it. It stops my arrows shot from a 345fps crossbow at 20 yards just before the fletching with broadheads and right at the fletching with field points. The arrows pull out without having to use a arrow puller as long as you don't stack them too close together. They do require some effort but it is manageable. The handle makes it easy to carry and LL Bean provided free shipping which is a big plus also. The sides are marked as to which is for broadheads and which is for field points. In my experience, if you get this mixed up and shoot the broadhead side with a field point, it will pass completely through and keep on happily going minus your fletching. It would be nice if the overall target size was a little bigger but that would be in a perfect world. I would buy another one when this one wears out.
