I know this gets brought up quite a bit but can anyone recommend a really nice broadhead target that will hold up to crossbows? Either homemade or manufactured, it doesnít really matter to me as long as it will stop arrows repeatedly.

Any of the block style Rhienhart targets should work fine.

I have a morrel yellow jacket bag target that says it will stop speeds up to 425 fps. It works great for my tenpoint nitro xrt. Very easy to remove the arrows/bolts. I have a block and a field logic block to shoot broadheads into. The block is a few years old and is pretty shot up but still taking shots from the slower bows. I just started shooting the field logic one but it seems just like the block. The bolts from the tenpoint will drive into the fletchings at 40 yards but it is going 425fps. My excalibur assassin is going 305fps and they stop them about half way in.

I haven't had the block style targets fail. At first. Whatever Walmart sells works. Just turn it around and know you're shooting razors into it. Expect 2 years

Do these take broadheads? Looks like a field point target.

Block for broadheads
I make field tip targets. I save my plastic drop cloths and plastic bags from the store.
Fill a feed bag full and stomp it down tight. Zip tie it shut and you have a target for field tips and practice broadheads.
And move the bullseye around on any target
It will last longer

Not cheap but check out Matrix target system, itís 7 hexagonal sections stacked together which allows you to rotate out the center once itís shot out and replace sections one at a time. I havenít had mine that long yet but the material seems to hold up about like the Rhinehart targets which is the best Iíve found otherwise. Being able to always shoot the center is huge for me when doing long range broadhead shooting.

I like rinehart targets. The block style really hold up and have replaceable cores. I keep broadhead practice to just shooting the replaceable core.

Those do look nice, pretty pricey but you wouldnít have to worry about replacing fletchings all the time.

Just a little tip for field points only the best thing iíve found is old blue jeans, iíve shot my regular compound bow in the house into a single pair of folded up blue jeans. Since then iíve just cut them up and put them in a bag. It works great. Make sure to cut the buttons off of course.
