Accuracy is paramount to bowhunter success, and the best way to ensure your arrows impact vitals is practice, practice, practice -- all year long. To help archers get the most from their practice sessions, McKenzie Targets introduces the Team Realtree Shotblocker target.
Compatible with field points and broadheads (if possible, bowhunters should always practice with broadheads after sighting in field points), the Shotblocker offers easy, one-handed arrow removal. Easy arrow removal makes practice sessions more enjoyable for youngsters and archers who need to maintain as much strength as possible while shooting for extended periods. Featuring Welded-Core technology, the new Team Realtree Shotblocker is advertised to be McKenzie's most durable layered foam target. Not only does it provide superior stopping power, it's designed to reduce foam slivering.
Measuring 18x18x18 inches, the brightly colored Team Realtree endorsed target offers four-sided shooting and easy to see black aiming dots and bull's-eyes, in three different target sizes. Whether you're already tuned and looking to hammer the smaller black circles, or shooting with friends competitively and scoring arrows, the Shotblocker offers a number of strategically placed aiming dots and bull's-eyes that help extend the life of the target.
Headed to hunting camp? With a durable carry handle, the Team Realtree Shotblocker is perfect to take on hunting trips and light enough (16.35 pounds) that smaller-framed shooters can easily set it up for shooting. On the range, I found the Shotblocker performed as advertised. Field points, which are typically harder to pull out of a target than broadheads, slid out of the target easily with just one hand.
Foam slivering was minimal when shooting broadheads, even after hitting the same impact area multiple times. Last, the large carry handle made transportation and setup extremely easy. Durable, lightweight and adequately sized -- what more do you need in a portable target? MSRP: $99.99
