"Hips Archery Targets"

I picked up one of the Hips Archery Targets in 24x24 inches last year. They are made in Texas and claim to be durible as well as easy to pull arrows.

I took this target to the mountains target practicing with broadheads. On a steep side hill moved the target to three diffent ranges before the cheep plastic carry strap broke. Arrows seep to pull as advertised but broadheads seem to chew up the foam more than a Block Target. These Hips Targets are also over priced starting at $ 180 for the 24x24 inch size. For what one gets long term I am going back to the Block.

If your going to leave the Hips Target in one place and not try to move it around. Arrows do pull out nicely compared to most other targets including the Block.

check out the Rhinehart targets I had 2 blocks before getting my Rhinehart & ALL I shoot year round is broad heads have had the same target now for 3 years & shoot at least 500 arrows a year into it & it is still 1/2 or better of New carbons are a little stiff to pull but as soon as the broad head breaks free its an Easy pull I myself will Never buy anything other than another Rhinehart !!
