A Buyer’s Guide to Archery Targets

Are you in the market for an archery target, but not quite sure where to start?

This buyer’s guide will help you find a target that fits your shooting needs. Here are a few questions to consider before pulling the trigger on a new archery target:

What is your bow’s speed rating?

Knowing your bow’s speed rating—typically listed in feet per second (fps)—can be a major factor in helping you choose a target. If you’re shooting a high-speed crossbow, you need an archery target with a speed rating to match. Better yet, you need a SpyderWeb No Speed Limit Target.

What do you want in a target?

Safety, durability, and ease of arrow removal are three qualities to look for in an archery target. A target that has been constructed with exceptional design integrity and has a high-density interior and a facing that ensures what’s on the inside stays inside. This equates to a higher level of durability, more stopping power, and a safer shooting experience. You also want a target that offers easy, two-finger arrow removal with every shot.

How do you know if you’re buying a quality target?

Reading verified customer reviews is one of the best ways to tell if you’re buying a quality target. These can be found on a company’s website, Amazon, and on their Facebook business page. For example, SpyderWeb Targets currently have 262 verified customer reviews (and counting!). Of those, 96% indicated a 100% customer satisfaction rating. That’s a solid indication of a quality archery target.

What else should you know before pulling the trigger on a target?

Price to quality ratio. There are plenty of times when it's wise opt for the cheaper version of something. But not when it comes to archery targets. Choosing a target is one of those times where it makes more sense to shell out some extra cash and invest in a higher quality target. A target that will last you a lifetime of shooting. A target that reigns supreme when it comes to ease of arrow removal and safety. A SpyderWeb Target.

After only 100 shots I am pleased with the target. Easy àrrow pull is great. I am expecting a long life. The price tells me it should hold up. I hope I am not disappointed.


I must say after reading views about this company and there product's. I was really excited about getting my ST 18" target. I have a Ravin R10 and the target is everything they said. Bolts were easy to remove one handed, shot about 20 bolts so far. Target holding up awesome! Looking forward for many years use from it. I also had the opportunity to speak with the owner. He is a good guy had a lot of knowledge on targets. Really good conversation with him. If you haven't ordered a target you need to.

Love it. Highly recommend

Amazing target!

Unbelievably dense target! I recently purchased a new 410 fps crossbow and needed to sight it in. My first shot was at 10 yards and only got about 5" of penetration and could remove the bolt with 2 fingers. I would recommend this target to anyone!

Great target

After purchasing a new Xbow none of the targets I had would stop the arrows consistantly. I purchased a foam layered target which would stop the arrows , but I could not pull them out without tipping the target on its back, standing on the target, then pulling the arrows with both hands. Once I got the spyder web target, it stops my arrows with about 6-8" of penetration and most can be removed with one hand. --- Bud
