Our 52" FITA mat was born, and in a very short period of time we were suppling clubs and tournaments around the world with a light weight, durable mat that had a replaceable center core. In 2000 we were very proud to design and build the mats used in the Sydney Olympics.
The center core of our FITA mats are made from HD high density foam, that will give you years of use, however when new, arrow removal with some set ups can be difficult. We recommend Scorpions Venom Arrow Lube for the first 500 to 1000 shots. Scorpions Venom Page.
As time has progressed so have our targets. And for 2014 we would like to introduce you to the finest competition mats in the world.
The American Whitetail Competition mat.

To compliment our mats, and to upgrade existing mats, we are introducing for 2014 the new VelociCORE KV (with Aramid Fibers). Made in a 24" diameter x 9"Thick size, the Velocicore KV is the toughest core we have ever designed. The center is packed with Aramid Fibers, the same material used to make Ballistic Bulleproof garments. The smallest, fastest arrows are stopped dead in their tracks, and pull with almost no effort.
The anti fraying properties of the Aramid means the material suffers practically no damage when the arrow strikes it. The VelociCORE KV brings a new level durability and enjoyment to your archery practice! The VelociCORE KV Page
Any FITA mat can be upgraded to VelociCORE KV center for a $100.00 up charge.
The 2011 AAE Arizona Cup featured two of American Whitetail new products. The 54" diameter target matt and the new full size back up bags. Each are for a specific job.
"We were delighted to have the new 54" FITA targets. They allowed the archers ample space to mount four of the new 80cm, 6 ringed target faces per the April 1, 2011 FITA rules." Bob Pian, AZ Cup Tournament Director. "The 48" back up bags were matched up with new 48" wide target stands to back up four spot 50 meter compound targets. The full size bag insured that there were no pass thrus!"
"Currently using your school mats for our JOAD program. Going on year three and just needing minor repair. Great product!" Via the Internet
