Age and elbow has determined that I have to switch from reg bow to crossbow. I have a "cube" type target (dont know brand off hand but was like $40 from a chain store) that is rated for both bows and crossbows but the crossbow sinks em in their so far have a hard time getting them out. Have been considering getting one of those bags and hanging them but for $80 I was wondering will this get me results I want. (Easier arrow/bolt removal) 90% of the shooting will be field points but when season comes there will be some broadheads tossed at it too. So I am asking what do you guys recomend for a target. And specific names would probably help here also. I have seen cubes as low as $30 and as high as $100 so I would like to get the most affortable target. Does not have to be a cube but they are convinent and light.

Also what ever target I get will eventually get hung. I would think that hanging a target will let the bolt not go so deep.

Bows that will be shot at it are rated around 320 f.p.s.

I found this video a couple of years back.

It really works.
I use a 225lb Exomax (350 fps) and I can pull the arrows out with a finger and thumb.
Cheapest target ever - just recover the face with another piece of cardboard
when too many holes are there!
