That thing is as dangerous as it comes. Straw breaks. Even simple target or slightly heavier field points will quickly destroy this target. I'd be wary of using a bow with a draw weight greater than 45lbs for any use with that target.

A compound bow can easily be set to 60-80 lbs and with the draw drop due to the ex centric cams - the perceived hold is 45 lbs. Hit that target with decent consistency and you will send an arrow through it - I'd guess that fewer than 10 arrows would destroy that target.

Serious archers use high-density self-healing foam:

You can hit that brute with anything, including broadheads and expanding broadheads, and it just keeps taking it.

Not nearly as pretty as this (put a stack of the Rinehart targets behind that straw and you get pretty and safe....).
