HIPS X2 Stalker



Designed for portability and maximum stopping power, the X2 Stalker ($113) is one of four cube-style targets in Hips' X2 Series. The first thing I noticed about this target was its light weight. How light, you ask? Light enough that I could shoot it at 20 yards, pull my arrows, and then throw it to my 30-yard stake for sighting-in my next pin.




The seemingly endless number of aiming points Hips managed to fit onto the six shootable sides of this 18"W x 16"H x 18"D target translate into a target that will last you a long time -- an appealing quality to anyone on a tight budget.

I shot both fieldpoints and fixed-blade broadheads into the Stalker, and not only did it stop both equally well, it did so with little slivering. As promised, Hips' Master Target material, used to cover the layers of heat-welded Endurance Foam, is waterproof and resistant to tearing.


Lastly, the target has vertical and horizontal lines on one side. By shooting three arrows into these lines, you can quickly determine if your arrows are in tune with your arrow rest and you're getting proper flight. It works!
