Target Dated Bond ETF's

I am considering using target maturity bond ETF's to create a fixed income ladder instead of CD's. I noticed other members posted on this product several months ago.

Does anyone use these ETF's in lieu of CD's? If so, are you pleased with their performance?

I was looking at Guggenheim Bulletshares. From my research I see the following benefits:

1. higher yields.
2. Better diversification then individual bonds.

My concern is safety of principle if interest rates spike. I don't have a good understanding of the risk with these products.

Any insight would be appreciated.
