Mckenzie Mountain Lion Target

Reviewed By Steve , 12 October 2009

From the Natra-look range of 3D targets.

Another excellent McKenzie target which features Dura Flex foam which claims to be the most advanced foam used in targets today.

This 3D is a solid realistic target standing 24" tall it is 49" in length. This one has been in use for over 18 months and despite being shot with hundreds of arrows several times a week it still looks in superb condition, I like this target because there are no protruberances, nothing to snap off or break, it comes apart in 3 sections, the center one is the one which the publicity says has the Dura Flex foam, but unlike the African Lion there is no great disparity in weight between the 2 sections - they fit together well and the head section fits without issues too.

Arrow removal is a little tight, but that just shows the quality of the foam.

 

 
McKenzie Mountain Lion
Note how the mid section has soaked up punishment from arrows whereas the front and rear section show old arrow impacts.

Features & Design half a review mark
Good Looking targe with excellent arrow stopping power, with no "bits" to break off this is a well designed target
Performance half a review mark
Stops arrows well and the mid section soaks up punishment and looks good even after thousands of arrows.
Value for Money
A very nice solid target which will last well.
Overall half a review mark
Scores high as it performs all the tasks a course layer or archer will want, in particular a nicely made target that will last and doesn't cost the earth.

    This particular target is a favourite of mine. I wanted one for my wood but couldnt get one from the UK. Ended up getting one from Holland. With some luck it will be placed during the winter , if I can find just the right palce.
