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.

Awesome!!

I couldn't believe how close I was shooting my Killer Instinct
415 burner crossbow at this target. Did not penetrate through it at all. Would definitely recommend it to others

Works well

This target is excellent. It stops my bolts at 450 fps allowing penetration of only 4 to 5 inches. They pull out with no effort. Not a surprise but it is heavy!

High Density Target

I recently purchased a crossbow and needed a target to stop the bolt of 440fps. It is easy to pull out bolt and penetration keeps fletching from entering target.

Excellent service/product

Can’t beat this target!!
Ravin R500

Spyderweb 18XL

Excellent target…….excellent build/value. 426 fps with a 457 grain bolt/arrow and will stay in the target….will not pass through unless you shoot at the same hole over and over again. This is the only target I use for my Ravin crossbows.
