Our 52" FITA mat was born, and in a very short period of time we were supplying 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 is made from HD (High Density) foam, that will give you years of use. When new, however, arrow removal with some set-ups can be difficult. We recommend Scorpion Venom Arrow Lube for the first 500 to 1000 shots.
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.

To complement our mats and to upgrade existing mats, we are introducing for 2014:
The New 2014 VelociCORE KV with Aramid® Fibers
The new VelociCORE KV, made with Aramid® Fibers, is the toughest core we have ever designed. The center is packed with Aramid Fibers, the same material used to make Ballistic Bulleproof garments. Made in a 24" diameter x 9" thick size, the VelociCORE KV will stop even the smallest, fastest arrows in their tracks, and yet arrows 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!

Any FITA mat can be Upgraded to VelociCORE KV Center for a $100.00 upcharge!
The 2011 AAE Arizona Cup featured two of American Whitetail's new products: the 54" diameter FITA Target Mat and the new, full-size Back-up Bags. Each is for a specific job.
"We were delighted to have the new 54" FITA Target Mats," said Bob Pian, Arizona Cup Tournament Director. "They allowed the archers ample space to mount four of the new 80 cm, 6-ringed target faces per the April 1, 2011 FITA rules. 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-throughs!"
What Our Customers Say:
"Currently using your school mats for our JOAD program. Going on Year THREE and just now needing minor repair. Great product!"
