If you've followed my posts any at all over the last little bit, you will remember me being pretty down on Block targets and their durability.

Well despite this fact, my wife and I decided to give a GlenDel buck a try. The target's overall thickness was much better than some of the others we looked at. So I bought one...and we bring it home. I bought it new in mid August 2012. It is now just past mid September. This target has less than 100 arrows shot into it...I shoot mostly into my bag target and have been shooting the deer target maybe once or twice a day. Despite this...look what is happening with it in just a month's time with just field tip shooting. Only til a week ago did it have a practice broadhead shot in it, and it was a blue practice Rage.

This is from 25 yards btw.



Here you can see just how few arrows have actually been shot into it...and already getting near pass through arrows. I shot one the other day and my arrow completely disappeared and all that was holding it was the fletching on the back side of it. This is disappointing for a brand new target. And why I will NEVER own another GlenDel/Block/Field Logic product.



I bought a cheap 3D target at WalMart about 3 years ago that held up to shooting until this year!! I could have bought two of those targets to what I gave for this GlenDel.

I would email them. They will send you a insert and call it good. I use a rhinehart 18-1(I think) and have thousands of arrows in it, no pass thru's.

Get a Blob and you won't have to worry about things like this for many years.

I have an older blob but they don't do any good for practice on 3D shooting (yardage estimatation and 12 rings). I've found I can do much better via shooting at something that resembles the targets we shoot. Besides that, I know how little those guys have in a Blob style target and ain't paying $100+ for one ;\)

I've got an 18-1 too and it does a good job for stopping arrows. I've had mine several years and no problems. I just wanted something 3D deer shaped to shoot at instead of dots or golf tees.

Your right—I didn't think about 3D aspect. You shoot ASA? Hear about the rule changes to the upcoming season—no 14's and all lower 12's unless upper 12 is called prior to the shot, and perhaps an incease in speed limit to 300fps?

I shouldn't have to be rotating the insert with less than 100 shots in it and barely a month old. Know what I mean?

Something told me when I was standing in the store pondering which to buy, not to get another of their products. I could have got two of the other ones for what I gave for one of these...no insert rotation required to last a while.

Your just to good of a shot hitting the same channels lol. In all seriousness, to me the Glendale is all part of the gimmick to get you to spend more money on their products. Now since your arrows are passing thru or almost passing thru they are hoping you'll go buy another insert and they ain't cheap. I blew my Glendale up with a jar of tannerite that was the best use for it. As for the Block I love mine, but with that said I'm now getting pass thrus on it now but its been shot probably 4000 to 5000 times now everybody in my family who bow hunts shoots it and mines 3 years old.
