    Hi there! Do you have a preference for a target size? What is your budget?

    I'm in Perth and build self-healing targets which last a lifetime and don't rely on replacement of foam cores.
    Cheers,
    Daniel

    Thats one hell of a Trump like claim.
    Would be very interested to know the size the cost and what material you make your " self-healing targets which last a lifetime " out of.

    Just made this. 1200x1200x300
    Big stack of used EVA tiles from Ebay -$25 (cut in half)
    3x3m M12 all thread rod $20 from Bunnings (cut in half)
    50mm Sleepers and other bits from Bunnings $30
    Compressed about 15% - solid stopping power.
    Should be easy enough to swap left/right, middle/top/bottom when areas get worn.
    Not a bad option for $75-$80 bucks

    That looks awesome... I'd love to know how it goes with thin carbon arrows and how easy the arrows are to pull back out???


    Did you get all those tiles for $25??? Got a URL link???

    Cost is no problem. We make the arrows pay for the target!

    Hi flashman,
    hahaha yes. It is hard to comprehend the claim when commonplace targets need constant maintenance. I've only made them for my own use in my archery bat-cave as of yet but am considering starting to sell them as they've worked very well for me.
    The design is similar to that of a bag target, but the fibers inside are not actually being pierced. They are blocking the arrows. The inside contents need to be redistributed occasionally to keep the inside uniform, (by standing on the front of the target) but not replaced.

    What you've seen in this thread isn't what Daniel Drieberg in Perth is talking about.
    It is what danielb1 in Melbourne has made.

    I'm not so sure yet. Probably spoke to soon on the thread as I am upgrading the design to incorporate a built-in stand and easily detachable/interchangeable faces (the mesh style material on the front and back). I can say confidently the targets will not break the bank however. If the new design is a success I will put them up for sale on the forum and also make a website for the targets.

    I've only shot C1's at it so far (6m). They stop in about 25cm. A few hundred shots and yet to have one stick out the back. I'm sure it would stop Protours pretty much the same. The arrows are a little tight to pull out but not too bad. I still have room to compress the foam a bit more if needed but it seems about right the way it is.
    The used tiles were a one off sale on Ebay but keep an eye out for them - I'm sure others would come up for sale occasionally.
