    Vortex broadheads out of business?

    Just looking over my gear and was going to get some more Vortex two blade expandables. The website is there but when you go to order them they are unavailable. Does anyone have a lead on where to find them? They worked better than any broadhead I have used to date.

    Please help if you know someone with a stash of them.

    Here is a shop I know has a bunch on the shelves. They are primarily a bait and tackle shop but with an Archery section as well. Give them a call and they should have what you need.

    Thanks guys, just tried the bowhunter super store. Dead end, they are listed but you can not order them. Same as the Vortex website. I am going to try calling black water sports center like suggested above.

    Thanks TimmyZ7, I just bought the last 3 packages of 75grain mini-max heads they had. Talked to Jeff, good guy. He is putting in the mail for me Monday.

    I have a pack of mini max 3 blades in 75gr that I will probably never use because I need atleast 100grs+ so if you want them they are yours. Just p.m. your address and I will send them out early next week.

    Yours will be in the mail tomorrow from me. I pulled them out and they are brand new in the package. I couldn't get to the post office earlier in the week but I will be there tomorrow.

    TimmyZ7,

    I received them yesterday, and you my friend are a steely eyed missile man. Thank you so much. I will post on this thread the deer that fall to your generosity.

    Hey guys. I just joined archery talk. Always on it but never signed up. I can definitely help with the vortex broadheads that ARE out of business. My brother and I have shot 100 gran 2 blades for 15+ years. I have never lost a deer or had one go more than 50 yards and a few havn't been the best shots due to shooting on a steep angle. The entry and exit holes are insane and guys that see the damage can't get enough. Anyway, There is a archery shop in my area that does not have a web site. I bought the last of the 100 grain 2 blades and extra blades but he has about 10 packs of the rest like the mini max and other kinds. I don't shoot them so I'll give him the business and help you guys out with getting the last of them. Jest send me a pm and I will give you his info. Look fwd to being part of the site...

    Thanks and welcome to AT! Not sure if I am going to stay with the 75 grain two blade or go with a lighter arrow (CT Cheetah) and heavier 100 grain head. I am sold on the vortex heads either way. Huge wounds and they drop quick.

    Thanks again,

    No idea. But their broadheads are hard to find.
