    I just found that same test the other day as well. I went to cabelas and picked up their broadhead target that is the same as what is shown. I have not shot into it yet.

    I bought a new broadhead target from cabelas it is the same one after i seen the sticker on it, The problem i have with it is removing the arrows they are stuck in like glue i have to lay it on the ground and put my knee on it and pull with both hands ,good news is it does not slice apart like the bumble bee target it lasted me about a year after fixing it several times ..

    Time will tell how long the new one last....

    Andy are you just shooting broadheads into the target? As that target is known to be very hard to remove arrows with field tips and from what I have read they should not be used in the target. If your having trouble with removing arrows with broad heads, try some type of spray on them. That is what I plan on trying when I start using my target.

    The guys over at CrossbowNation say this type of block target is very tight at first. You should have easier removal after being shot-up more.

    Andy, try ''Jig-A-Loo''. It comes in a spray can. Spray it on the front-half of your arrows. This stuff is fantastic. Available at Lowe's, Tru-Value and some Wal-Marts. It's amazeing how easy it is to remove arrows.

    Andy,

    I find that a little silicone on the shaft helps a little. The best thing I can recommend is picking up a pair of arrow pullers. Here is a link to show you what I am talking about:

    How are the broadheads grouping on the new arrows?

    Bob i shot slicktricks both the magums and the grizz and i got a 2 inch group at 30 yds..Then i tryed the nap nightmares i got the same results ,
    the only problem i have is the trigger pull on the TL-7 is long and hard i was thinking of buying the new kit they have for the TL-7 but for a 134.00 its a bit to much to swallow i will stick with what i got for now..

    Sounds good. It will definately do the job. Hopefully we will get some nice weather and I can finish dialing in my rig.
