Features of the Morrell Yellow Jacket YJ-350 Field Point Bag Archery Target
- Designed as a General Target. This target is used for target practice for multiple archery disciplines. You can use it for crossbows, bows, and other similar marksmanship sports. The only exception is for rifles and guns in general. This is an advantage since having a consistent target is helpful for these sports.
- Easy Visibility. One of the first things you’ll notice about this target is that it is so easy to see. The bright coloring really makes the target pop. Even if it is yards away, you will be able to see this target because of its noticeable coloration. The red and yellow design is a good choice for that. It also helps that it is quite large. Measuring 21 by 21 inches, it can be seen from several yards away.
- Stopping Power. One of the key things that make targets important is that they can stop an arrow properly. When you shoot at a target, an arrow delivers penetrating force into it. If the target is too flimsy, the arrow just punches through. This causes problems in removal since it can damage the arrow – and arrows can be expensive. This target has the right amount of stopping power so that the arrow won’t be unduly damaged.
- Increased Durability. One of the big problems that targets face is that they tend to get shot full of arrows. In the past, when targets were sandbags or similar targets, this caused them a lot of damage. Even wooden targets ended up being broken. However, to really get good at archery, you need to shoot thousands of arrows. You’ll want a target that will be able to stand up to a lot of punishment. That’s why the design of this particular product is very interesting. Thanks to the multiple layers of material inside it, it manages to keep its shape and integrity even when being shot at repeatedly. You can be sure that it will take thousands of shots before this target is destroyed.
- Easy Set-Up. When you’re target shooting, you want to get into the action quickly. So, it’s nice to know that a target can be easily carried around. This is thanks to the EZ tote handles on the target. Besides that, it also has grommets that allow for easy hanging. So, you can just find any free-standing structure and hang the target up. No need for an expensive stand for your target practice.
- Simple Arrow Removal. Another thing that makes this target very interesting is that it allows for simple arrow removal. One part of it is the impressive stopping power of the target. With multiple layers inside it, it stops the field point arrow from fully penetrating. Another part is that the material it is made of does not hold on to the arrow when you pull it out. This allows you to easily remove the arrow if necessary.
- Field Point Arrows only. One of the big problems with this target is that it only allows you to practice with field point arrows. Field point arrows have narrow tips. This means they focus their penetration into small spots. It also allows them to be more aerodynamic, making them perfect for target shooting. However, archery also uses multiple points. You may want to use them in the field, but when you’re doing target practice, you will need to limit yourself to field points. This is because using anything else will do too much damage to the target.
Overall, it’s a pretty good product from Morrell. If you’re planning to go into archery, then you’ll need a simple, no-frills target that you will want to practice on. Morrell Yellow Jacket YJ-350 Field Point Bag Archery Target meets all of those needs easily. It is tough and can handle a lot of punishment. You will be able to get a lot of practice out of it.
