Arrowmat target faces
As an outdoor writer, I get a lot of stuff sent to me. It’s one of the bonuses of being willing to work for peanuts writing magazine articles. Some of the stuff I get is just plain silly and I find myself hoping that someone hasn’t sunk their life savings into something that is doomed to failure. But from time to time I get a chance to test something that is pretty cool and serves a purpose or solves a problem so to speak.
The Arrowmat target faces I received the other day are nothing earth shattering but they do have an application and they came at a good time for me. I have attached a couple “before and after” pictures, one of my block target that is pretty shot up, and one after I added the arrowmat to it.
The arrowmat comes in several different styles including ones that have pictures of deer, elk and a turkey on them. I like this one because the center is pretty well shot out of this block target and my arrows were zinging through it. That’s partly the fact the I am shooting some super fast Harvest Time arrows out of a Mathews Z7 Extreme, which is one of the fastest bows out there. But it is also partly the fact that my family and I have shot a couple thousand arrows into that block and I was about to throw it away. The arrowmat will allow me to get some more use out of it.
The arrowmat is made of what appears to be some kind of neoprene, similar to a mouse pad, but a lot thicker. It’s cool since when your field-tipped arrows goes through it, it slows the arrow down and when you pull the arrow out, it closes back up. Looks to me like you can shoot a lot of arrows into this thing before it is completely perforated for good.
So that’s just a little tip about a cool product. You can see more about this product at ARROWMATShare
