Just got mine delivered by UPS yesterday. Anyone who uses these, do you like? My first one of these targets. On sale at Cabelas, had to go for it.

I like mine. It has held up pretty well to a lot of shooting.

The head did not hold up very well to the dog though:-(.

4 sided target center outlasts rest of target. Still use my center as small target after legs and head portion broke.

I like mine. Watch out for the flyers though. The plastic parts don’t take arrows very well :)

I never really liked mine, Rinehart is the only way to go if you shoot a lot!

I have had one for 3 years and shoot everyday. Have not had to replace the insert just flipped it over and around although it is due for it now. Great target

Love mine. Had it for long time. Takes tons of arrows. Have not had to replace insert yet.

I don't shoot a ton of broadheads in mine. Use a cheap foam one my insulator made for me for those. I'm guessing my glendale will last 10 years and that's with my boys shooting it too.

Decent target but doesn’t hold up As well as other targets

Agree with Scar-Finger. Rhinehart better quality all around - got one blemished from Lancaster cheap .

I started using the Solo target system, and I'll never use another target again!! It's a great system that allows the use of different skins and allows me to change in minutes to whatever I want to shoot.

I agree with the above... A nice, good looking target, but Rhinehart will take way more arrows in the long run. Out of my zoo of 3d shooting targets I would put the Glendel in the top 1/3. And yes, plastic pieces don't play nice with arrows when you hit them.

Thanks for replies, guys. I also have a Bulldog target that is awesome, and a bag target from Canadian Tire, so they will take some pressure off the Glendel. Mostly wanted it to practice shooting at a life-like animal for when and if the time ever comes.... lol

Now that was funny drycreek. Mine must have been a fighter cause when I took him out of the box his antlers were already broke. Shot him four time and went to pull my arrows that's when I noticed they were buried up to the fletching. But him right back in the box and returned him.

"I like mine. Watch out for the flyers though. The plastic parts don’t take arrows very well :)"

^^^This^^^

The last one I bought was a POS. It had the molded plastic legs and plastic cups in the body to snap into. Field tips do NOT come out of the plastic parts. Also the cross section of the lower portion on the legs is so small, it allows the target to bend back. The legs take an actual set. The insert had about a 1/4" gap all around. Instead of fitting snug, at every shot the insert would wedge into the target, eventually cracking and breaking the pivoting top part of the target that is supposed to lock it in.

GlenDels response? Hmmmm sorry to hear that. We have replacement legs for $30.00 each. Yeah, no thanks. I'll put the $60 towards something better.

Mine has no plastic parts so I guess it is one of the first ones. Bought it as a blem when the Buda , Texas store first opened so it’s probably over ten years old. I’m on my third vitals replacement.

Drycreek obviously the one I bought was defective. I have never had a 3d target before that one or after. I'm kinda tight with money and couldn't talk myself into buying another one.

I've had the Pre-Rut Buck now for four years. On my second vitals. It's held up well and would last longer but sometimes I can't help myself and I shoot broadheads into it.

12 yards, you show a remarkable lack of confidence in your shooting. Shame on you for hedging your bet with that piece of plywood. As you see, if I miss, my arrows go sailing off into the damn woods. I keep thinking maybe I'll hit a squirrel, or even better, a hog, but, alas, I just lose my arrows. I think there are at least four or five out there that I never found. :-)

Hated mine and won't buy another. There is a metal conduit that runs across the belly and up the neck. Hit that and kiss your $20 arrow goodbye.......

I've been through two of them. Pros and cons, but I'm looking elsewhere for my next target(s).

I bought a Rhinehart. Very happy. Going on like 6 years and still minty. One day I’ll hit it and then we’ll see how it holds up ;)

Ha drycreek, actually I do have confidence in my shooting. I just don't have confidence that my targets will stop my arrows from going through to the garage door. The bag target behind is not in great shape.

In a pinch or if you need a another decoy this will work. It is a bit of a pain and heavy to carry out, but you can leave out there if you don't mind it in the elements. I usually leave my main decoy in the field, so this is my backup decoy when using another area

From: Griz

Might be "adequate" for a home target but don't use it for an actual 3D shoot. If it has the plastic "turn-lock" legs, it won't hold up.
