Road fabric. It withstood our whole season and didn't even come close to failing. Cheap. I think it was $80 for a 200 foot section. Rebar for the ends and middle. Spray glue and zip ties to hold it together....and wrap the ends around the rebar to pad it. Obviously light weight and easily portable. We stopped using the piping you see in one of the pics because of it. Roll it up around the rebar when done.

nice elraido! same setup we used, just a different material. If i had to guess stanchy, the road fabric would hold up to 350+ fps no problem since the vinyl we were using held up fine to hot shots.

We actually got tired of wasting paint trying to break it. We even had an x7 phenom set hot with burst/full auto I forget which and it wasn't an issue. its not stretched super tight so it bounces alot of shots unless you have hyper fragile tournament paint. Overall, it would take some real effort to put a hole in it.

We opened up the area for this next year...but it is actually our first flag zone and it doubles as a poor mans speedfield.

We tested it out before we put it up. Had 4 guns shoot 500 rounds each at one spot on the fabric from about 30 feet away at 300 ft/sec (we chrono on game days for 280). Didn't even come close to ripping. It is a weaved plastic and like Melvin said, paid doesn't so much break on it as it just absorbs the energy from them and drops down depending on how tight you have it set up. We have it a little long on the bottom and put rocks on it so you can't skip shots under it. They also saw a LOT of paint this summer and were in great condition at the end....and weather really didn't do much to them either. We saw days of near 100 and some nights near 0 over the course of when we played....so it went threw some extreme temp ranges with no ill effects.

Welcome to recball. We use an old tobacco farm, dead vehicles, car doors, pallets, drainage pipe, barrels, old satellite dishes, water pump trailers, and whatever else gets thrown out on the road to make our field.
