I shot my bow with my mechanical broadheads.They shot just fine but they didn't open.Is this normal with the block type targets?They are the stringer from Wal-mart.

maybe it was to soft for them to open.

That would still make me a little wary of them.

You have a valid reason for returning them. Get your money back and buy some fixed blades! I guarantee they'll open!!

My guess is they opened. When you pull them out the rubber band will roll forward and close the head back up. The newer mechs are much better than a decade ago or more when they had their problems. I have used a few of the NAP mechanicals and never had a problem with them.

Tape a piece of paper on both sides of the target . That way you can tell if the blades actually open or are closing after the quick deceleration after penetrating the target . The arrow stops from the friction of the target , and the blades will close up after penetrating through and stopping suddenly .
