This review is from: Mckenzie 20950 TuffBlock Game Shot Archery Target (Sports) For everyone who has written a negative review about this, I suspect you are not using it correctly. Here is a detailed description so that if you are considering purchasing it you purchase it for the right reason. This is about 2’X2′ on the front, and about 1′ deep. It is composed of styrofoam encased in a sealed semi-heavy plastic cover (think plastic as thick as a good ziplock bag with a target on it). It is clearly labeled that it is not intended for bows with greater than 40lb draw. I would add that it is intended for kids arrows with rounded tips. Don’t even try regular archery arrows with practice tips. And most definitely don’t use broad heads with this. As far as what you can expect when you shoot. The rounded tip arrows will hit the target where you want, with practice and the use of good sighting. On the youth archery set I use it for I simply us colored headed pins taped above the arrow rest for varying elevations. When a round tip arrow goes into a styrofoam target don’t expect it to look like Robin Hood placed the arrows. They will likely deflect some through the media so you will get some varying angles on the arrows that are in the target. Or, you might not. But, I’m just saying don’t expect the arrows to react to the target like they would if it were a much more expensive target designed for high bow weight and practice or broadhead points. Rounded points will act less predictably at lower velocity in a styrofoam target. For life of use I would say you should be able to expect this to last for a few hundred shots. If I remember the price correctly it was something like $20. So from my experience of buying targets for both archery and guns, $20 for a few hundred shots is pretty reasonable. I got this along with a Bear Archery First Shot Youth Bow Set to expose my nieces and nephews archery when they get to be 5-7. This is fine for that. And I shoot the target in my office at about 15 feet if I am getting cabin fever. When I read the reviews before I bought this I was astounded at how many reviews reflected the purchase of something other than what was expected. I hope this review helps a little to give the right expectation. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 27 of 31 people found the following review helpful OK target for smaller bows, October 11, 2010 By muppet (KS, USA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Mckenzie 20950 TuffBlock Game Shot Archery Target (Sports) It’s not possible to see in the picture, but this target is intended for bows with a draw of 40 lbs. or less, not an adult bow. It’s ok, but basically just a piece of styrofoam with a plastic bag on the outside. If you have a child’s bow, this target is perfect. If you’re a guy, this probably isn’t tough enough for you. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 44 of 54 people found the following review helpful Do NOT buy this target!, November 9, 2010 By Robert – This review is from: Mckenzie 20950 TuffBlock Game Shot Archery Target (Sports) I bought a McKenzie TuffBlock without reading any reviews about it. Big mistake. It is merely a plastic wrapped block of Styrofoam. I used mine for about 2-3 weeks before I started getting shoot-throughs. I shoot field tips only, with a 35# recurve bow. Compared with other recurves or compound bows, it’s not very powerful. And yet the McKenzie NOT-VERY-TUFFBLOCK can’t handle it. I would NEVER, EVER buy this product again. Currently, I’m reading reviews on Buzzillions ([…]) and looking for a new target. Don’t waste your money on this piece of junk. You have been warned! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
