The first Robin Hood I ever got I was thrilled with, and I still have it. After that, not so much....it ruin$ TWO arrows! :o

That's why my basement target is a 5 spot!!!

'hooding' aluminums is one thing, but carbons get expensive ... a multi spot is one way around it, I still trash arrows shooting BH's and FP's into 3D and bag targets, I try not to shoot groups per se .. I used to have a wall of 'hoods ...

Me neither. I try to just pick a spot. That's more like hunting anyway. Once I can shoot outside again, I just use Judo points and shoot at leaves and shadows in my back pasture. When the Queen Anne's Lace is in bloom then I try and decapitate them. FUN!

I agree that the first one is exciting and the rest are just expensive (and a sign of bad judgment).

I saved all my aluminum Robin Hoods but none of the carbons. They were all shot in league.

Best Robin hood i saw was at my clubs traditional shoot. I shot a rhinehart bear target and hit the twelve ring dead center at 25 yards. I razed my buddies with me and then my friend shot and he Robin hooded my arrow. That's what i get for bragging. Of course the picture made it into the club's newsletter so i got grief for awhile.

I agree with shooting at a 5 spot target. I was in a league and they had many of the targets that you would have to shoot through a steel plate to hit your target. I ruined a lot of aluminum arrows at that place.
