I found a BLOCK 6x6 for 85$ at academy the other day. Sale maybe? Rineharts are probably the best, but can get pricey.

My archery club has Rineharts and they get pounded. Probably the cheapest for the buck.

I've been using a Rinehart 18-1. Not cheap! I only use it for BH's . Most of my regular shooting is using field points and I use a different target for that. Having multiple faces helps avoid shooting out the center and the foam does a good job of sealing back together. I plan on using mine for at least 5 years. Perhaps more.

I have used a Rinehart 18-1 for years and it’s held up well. I had a Block layered target that worked well for a short time but then the layers started to come out when I pulled the broadhead out. It went downhill fast.
I bought a Block later for cheap on E-bay but just use that for field points.

18-1 best broadhead target. Unless you can find old 3D target parts for cheap they work well with broadheads on the cheap.
Any Layered foam target Will fall apart quickly if you use broadheads with them.

Morrell yj380 is the toughest in my opinion. I have the Block 6x6 too and its a great target too. I do think the Morrell will last longer but the Block is nicer to remove arrows from.

Only other target Id consider would be a matrix. With replacement blocks it could be a great set up. Havnt touched one yet though.
I went through 2 targets a year testing broadheads with my compound til I found the 18-1. Thing would hold up 2 years of bi daily broadhead shooting 7 or so months a year. If you can shoot it out in a year I believe they used to warranty em.
I went and built a 4ftx4ft target with 2x12s and the 3rd hand target faces for field points. Going strong 3 years now and keeps my 18-1 lasting even longer. About time for a new broadhead target and I may jump on a matrix. Having a bigger face makes shooting broadheads at long range a lot less stressful. Super slick looking system. Be nice for one of you to bite the bullet before me and give it a review. Hard to stray from the 18-1

There is a insulation spray foam guy in the next town over. He has some yellow rubbery spray-on foam that is made for insulating and sticking directly things like shed and garage walls. Guys have called him about it, if they are patient and wait until he is on a job site where he is using that type, he will fill a large cardboard box for just a few bucks. It is way better than the white foam that he sprays in between enclosed stud walls.

On a Rhinehart 18-1, does the broadhead get buried in the target? Is it hard to remove?

When its new they can be a bear. After shooting a face up a bit they come out easy. Im shooting a 2 year old one right now with simmons safaris, vpa 2 blade and 3 blades and get no more than 6 inches of penetration. I imagine new Id only get a few inches with this set up.

The best broadhead target is a pile of clean sand.
Lasts for near ever. Seriously.

Not very mobil but for the house you can't beat it.

Looking at these foams to make a broadhead target.

https://www.foambymail.com/PE6-2ACY-...y-targets.html

https://targets.net/collections/poly.../target-backer

Or the foam garage door style insulation sold at lowes/home depot. Not looking to shoot a ton with broadheads.

I LIKE LUIS' suggestion of sand.
a big 6' x 6' x6' area of it - you could even stand back at distance and bang away at it.
Easy arrow removal.
rake or shovel it back up into shape.
hard to keep the neighborhood cats out of it.
