I notice some clubs are using compressed layers of foam carpet padding for target constrution. Has anybody tried this. ?? Some clubs in Florida say they are getting years of service out of this material.

Yeah I have a friend who uses one, literally got a load of scraps and cut offs from a dealer made the wooden frame with two threaded steal rods through and tightened with bolts and hey presto good to go, works well on his 60# hoyt compound,

Even took a few bolts from my pistol cross bow, when he wasn't there

You miss 100% of the shots you don't take

Don't see why it wouldn't work, especially if it's compressed as drummo mentioned. That's basically the method I use on my hay bale press, it works like a champ....

Hello All

On my pull down targets.

I used galvanize pipe and a welded long shank bolt to the pipe. By slipping the bolt shank inside the pipe and making a weld around the top of the pipe to the shank bolt.[ Later

That is how the butts at Ben Avery range near Phx. Az are built. Only issues I have seen so far is the center will get shot out somewhat. Been told it is from repeated use by compounds. But the butt lasts for years. You know when you hit that area, your arrow bounces back!! But the butt can be turned around and used for a few more years.

Hello All

4 ounce Ethel Foam makes a nice facing. And cuts down on carpet wear in one area.Then the carpit just becomes a back stop with less arrow shooting pressure.. [ Later
