These items are sold together as a “Starter Kit” for your convenience. However, you can customize your target stands and plate racks without paying for additional bases you don’t need by purchasing the targets as “singles” and the bases separately from the Parts and Accessories tab. Most of our customers buy more targets than bases. This way, they have replacement targets for the BOUNCEBACK™ Series and KNOCKDOWN bases, which they have mounted permanently on their target stand. To get starter we suggest buying the “starter kits” because they will have everything you need to get started.
