What to Look For When Buying an Archery Target

Choosing a target can be an arduous task as archery targets come in all shapes and sizes and are made from many different materials.

Whether you are involved in competitions, are an avid bowhunter, or just enjoying shooting recreationally, target practice is essential to generating the muscle memory and strength needed for optimal performance.

Not sure what to look for?

Here’s a list of factors to consider when shopping for the best archery target that suits your needs:

Type of Bow
What type of bow are you shooting? If you’re shooting a compound bow or high-speed crossbow, you need an archery target with a 400 FPS speed rating or higher.

The major reason you are buying the target is to provide a safe landing for your arrows while aiming at it. Therefore, you should look for a target that has been constructed with exceptional design integrity and superior craftsmanship in the USA.

A high-density interior covered with a facing material that makes sure what’s on the inside stays inside ultimately equates to more stopping power and safer shooting experience.

Ease of Removal
In general, the easier it is to remove arrows, the better the target. The best archery target should help you make the most of your practice sessions by easing the time and energy spent to yank out the arrows.

The best archery target should be able to take thousands of shots before coming anywhere close to being replaced. Look for a target with talks the talk and walks the walk by offering a lifetime guarantee and/or warranty.

Price to Quality Ratio
There are plenty of times when it's wise to 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.

There’s only one archery target on the market that hits the mark in all six of these considerations: SpyderWeb Targets.

Spider web no speed limit

My bow speed is 450 ft a second and the target has no problem stopping my bolt. I can pull the bolt out easily with one hand.

High-Density ST 18 XL Archery Target-No Speed Limit

ST 18 XL

I am very pleased! I was suprised at it’s weight. I made a custom archery target stand. I don’t need anything to support the ST 18. It’s weight alone can take my high speed tenpoint Sieges pounding all day long! Arrows are very easy to pull out. High quality target! Joel

Great Product! Very Easy to remove arrows!

I had heard that this target was great, but was still surprised how easy my arrow came out after shooting it with my 330fps Matthew's compound bow. I almost thought the first arrow was hadn't made clean impact because it came out so easily! Cans wait to try it with my new Ravin crossbow that is coming!
