Got this for my indoor 24x24 target, just to practice with low power recurve bow.
Haven’t even unpacked from cardboard, placed face 24x24 target from Long Bow targets and fired away!

For context I'll provide the specs of my set up: Compound bow set to 70 lb draw weight, 31.5 in draw length. Arrows are micro diameter .166 total arrow length is 33.75 inches, 19% FOC, and weight 642 grains. Feet per second is 227-230 and Kinetic Energy was 74 ish Foot Pounds.
These foam targets are as listed in the descriptions above, quality is great, and they will work. Two of these sheets managed to stop my arrow, but barely! The arrow was burred through both sheet up to the nock, and the arrow had to be pulled through the foam. Three sheet' stopped the arrow just before the fletching made contact with the foam. Four sheets stopped the arrow after it penetrated 2/3 of the way through.
If you have heavier arrows expect to need multiple sheets to stop your arrows.

I've used these to draw and cut out, paint small game targets, rabbits, grouse, woodchucks, racoons, beaver, duck, squirrels, etc. Use both compound and traditional bows. Grandkids love them, as it adds so much to archery fun.

I've been buying these targets for years from this company. You can also purchase 8" circles from this company for an additional fee. Due to the fact that the center will always wear our first, you can use the supplied circle as you template. Cut a hole 1/4" smaller than the circle all the way around and force the circle into the cut hole. Now you have a brand new target. Love this stuff.

I shoot 38 and 36# recurves year round into these foam blocks, temps range from -15 to 90F. I try to move the targets faces around as much as possible to distribute the holes but after about 1800 arrows the center is pretty shot out. I rotate the target to get another 500 shots in less shot our regions. The I cut the shot out piece down the middle flip the edges to the center and duct tape it to a new piece of foam. I currently have 3 layers to target, 2 shot out flipped and one new all duct taped together. Works great and I get over half a year out of each new target foam piece then it gets moved one layer back. This is cheaper than replacing bag targets I highly recommend this foam

The high density foam targets are great for archery. We shoot thousands of arrows into the foam before we change targets and the targets remain outside from March to November. We highly recommend these high density foam targets. Generally this foam target is used by recurve archers shooting 40# to 45# recurve bows.

These work great. They take thousands of shots. 70# bows can shoot through them, esp when they're worn a bit so I stack 2. The backup can be made from a quartered old one since the center gets shot out. Glued with spray adhesive, and park a car wheel on a board on them till glue sets. Keep the arrow shafts clean and put silicone on them once in a while so they're easy to pull out.
