I finally decided to slice open this target's seam, and see what's inside (and retrieve the tips&inserts I lost (with the help of a metal detector). I'm attaching photos of the inside. Seems to be mostly some kind of tough textile scraps, with foam backing ... with several layers of burlap in the very center. My arrow points&inserts were stuck where they had several layers of the same textile stuff all stacked up.
I dislike this target so much, that I'm planning to give it away on craigslist, and buy a better one.
This seems to be a generally ok target. It has square edges, and is wide/thick enough that it will stand on its own. It stops the arrows with regular target tips, shot from my compound bows (around 60 pounds). The amount of stopping power, and the ease of pulling out the arrows differs from place to place in this target. If I had to guess, I would say the filling is chopped up textile/cloth scraps, chopped into pieces 4 or 5 inches long. For a large target, the price is decent.
The disadvantages - it's a bit heavy to carry (if it were a large round target instead, you could roll it). Sometimes the arrows are very difficult to pull out, depending on what's inside where you hit it. And when the arrows hit the plasticy/textile surface, they make a loud "popping" sound (which my neighbors thought was a 22 rifle, and came to investigate) - therefore if you like staying off of your neighbors' radar when you shoot, you might want a different target.
Including a picture of the first 20-yard shots with a new-to-me used compound bow (that I hadn't adjusted the sights yet on)...
Update jan 14:
As I suspected, less than 6 weeks and at most Approx. 300-400 or so field point shots and this is looking mighty sad.most of the front doesn't hold the arrows. the rags or whatever rag type stuffing in there is reached it's limit and as you can see that side of the cover has had it.still as i said before, i think all these bag types may have same stuffing and give you the same mileage. price wise this was the cheapest thing on the market few weeks ago.
update march 2
well as you can see from second pic, few hundred arrows and this thing has had it. all the rags are spilling out and the arrows just bounce. I'm downgrading to two stars.again most likely all these bag types are made of same stuffed rags.
last update march 27.
before i could use the second side this thing spilled all it's guts that's less than 500 shots. it now resides in city dump.
