    Hello guys and gals, I wanted to start a poll to see what 3D target you prefer? I have a Glendale buck 7X pre-rut buck and so far I must say I am not pleased. The first one I got had a bad mold on the front where you connect the body to the leg, and as I was putting the leg on the mold ripped off the body {#emotions_dlg.mathews_doah}So I called up field logic and to their credit they sent me a new body free of charge very cool!{#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up} But upon inspecting it the body has a tear on the seam where you put the core in. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_brick_wall}The tear is in the area at the bottom where I would insert the core. Anyone else have this issue? I have emailed field logic Rep that handled my first issue about this with no reply. I do believe its time to double tap with another email and phone call and speak to the reps boss… After all this and shooting 3D a few times I am liking the Rinehart targets better, and I love there exotic targets!

    Rinehart.

    I went through Glendale buck target so fast that I was ordering the replacement center the first month.

    Rinehart. 

    I went through Glendale buck target so fast that I was ordering the replacement center the first month.

    Yup!!!  Pretty much took me about 100 arrows into the vitals of my Glendale inserts before I’m getting arrows sticking out of the back of the target.  Another 100 arrows and they are passing on through.

    I quit buying the inserts a long time ago and just quit shooting at the Glendale all together.  I was burning a bunch of ice storm debris a couple weekends ago, and decided I was tired of looking at the “insertless” Glendale target standing up underneath my deck, so I went ahead and threw it on the fire with all the limbs and logs.  I do have to say though, for a target that isn’t worth a dern at stopping arrows, it sure did take a long time to burn up…..

    Rineharts are nice targets, but they come with a pretty steep price as well.  If you got it, spend it.  If you don’t, buy the cheap Cableas “pinnacle” targets.  They’re made from Rinehart foam and don’t come with the steep price tag.  They don’t have the replaceable inserts like the rineharts do, but you can buy a complete replacement Cabelas pinnacle target for about what a Rinehart replacement vital costs.

    I guess the folks at Cabelas are a bunch of liars then, because the description for the target specifically says it is made from Rinehart foam…….

    Straight from the cabelas website for the pinnacle turkey target;

    “Get ready for turkey season with our Pinnacle 3-D Turkey. Made of Rinehart’s FX foam for extreme target life, this target re-creates the shape and feather patterns of a real gobbler. It is rated for crossbows and vertical bows. Painted to look lifelike, you can also use it as a decoy. Great for field points and broadheads, arrows and crossbow bolts. Made in USA.”

    Maybe they just say they use Rinehart foam but really don’t, I’m not sure……..

    The funny thing is the cabelas pinnacle buck target is an exact replica of the Rinehart woodland buck, just painted up a little different.  I wouldn’t think it would be too big of a stretch to assume Rinehart is producing some targets for cableas to sell under their own brand.  Cabelas probably sells a ton of those targets, and I’m sure the deal is lucrative for Rinehart as well…….

    If it’s made BY Rinehart, then it’s obviously their foam. I wasn’t aware that they made targets for anyone but the Rinehart brand. So thanks for the info. They are making a cheaper foam that is used in the brown block target, but it’s not nearly as good as the original, they are also using it in their new buck target.

    After further research, it is indeed the cheap foam like the woodland target that is used in the “Cabela’s by Rinehart” block style target.

    Im starting to see what you all have been talking about… I have been shooting my Glendale buck every chance I get, Ive shot 100 arrows or so, and my arrows are sticking out the other side this isnt normal is it? Im shooting my 60lb Helim. I am loving the shooting and I like my the target, but Im going to go with Rinehart from now on I think… So am I understanding that Cabelas targets are using the Rinehart FX foam? whats the difference in the two foams??

    The fx foam is a bit harder, lighter, not as self healing, and not as much longevity as original. That said, it’s cheaper and still better than most others.

    True.  The foam for the woodland targets is just as good as anything else out there that isn’t a Rinehart, and probably better than most.  Rinehart targets have no equal, period.

    Thank you guys for all your help.. Im wishing I would have spent the extra on the Rinehart now, but at least now I know… Im still having a great time shooting at the glendale, and I will continue to shoot at it until all four sides are toast.. In the mean time I will talk my lovely wife into letting me get another target…{#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}
