Shooting targets to put on nets-so much price variability

I have a full sized net in my basement to practice shooting off a shooting board. Want to get one of those target overlays with the four corners and 5 hole open, but looking at a few websites I see them ranging from $30 to $270,

and presumably other than quality of materials, there doesn't seem to be much of a difference between them.

Have any of you used them? Suggestions/recommendations? Much appreciated!!!

I bought a USA Hockey one for $50. It's pretty good, but the weights at the bottom broke off. Honestly, I don't know why someone would pay 200 for a shooter tutor.

I don't either, but your post suggests that $50 isn't going to last me very long either if it broke....

Tie a string to a dog toy and hang it from the top bar.

Agreed.

All a shooter tutor does is create the bad habit of always going for a corner. Get some stuffed animals and some string and change up their locations every now and then and shoot at those, instead. Cheaper, you can get some variability, and you'll be able to work on accuracy all around the net instead of just at the corners.

I'd just rather pick spots and shoot at them myself. Try to go pipe and in just above the pads on either side, bar down on the corners, and about six inches off the ground five hole.
