    Default Free(ish) braodheads.

    Don't know if anybody has seen this but I just thought I'd share it. Carbon Express is giving away a set of broadheads. You just pay the shipping. Don't know much about it, but if anybody is interested, here's the link.

    Wow, that is definitely a design I've never seen before. I think I'm gonna go with blasterak and see if someone I know who lives in the L48 will be willing to receive them for me...

    I'm sorry folks. I didn't see that it excluded Alaska. I know one of the marketing folks for Carbon Express and I told him that that is not a good way to do business, especially since there are so many hunters in AK. I'll let you know if I get a reply.

    Please do, that would be great. Might wanna mention to him that he would get good feedback on broadhead performance on much larger game that way...

    RULE #1 for Marketing KNOW YOUR PRODUCT! RULE #2 KNOW YOUR CUSTOMERS...

    With that stated, pretty low to sit there & market your product on an ALASKAN Outdoors website, & then have someone else point out that your product isn't available to us "Eskimo & Indian igloo dwellin' Totem pole in the yard next to the sled dog parked, Alaskans..."

    Good on ya.

    It is annoying that so many companies tend to forget that AK is still part of the US (despite what a few Alaskans would prefer ).

    I had a set of the fixed blades sent to my folks in WY - they're going to bring them up next week when they visit to do some fishing. Hopefully I can get an opportunity to try them out!

    and thanks for pointing it out in the first place!

    I ordered them and was a bit bummed when it came and there was one, as in singular, broadhead in the package. I got the expandable just to see what they were like and it does look wicked.

    Likewise... got word from my dad that the package showed up, and it's a single fixed-blade broadhead. Don't know what I'm going to do with one broadhead. If they're going to give away $10K in broadheads (or whatever they said), seems like they'd be much better off giving away sets of 3 to fewer people. I'd actually set my bow up to try them out in the field sometime with 3, but one is just a novelty.

    Well, I wouldn't expect a company to give away a whole set of three...they tease you into buying the set by sending only one... GCI loves teasin' their customers that way...

    look better in person, fly better than u think, the kill is going to be amazing. My 2 day old yellow jacket is abused. Shooting Z7 at 65 lbs with 350 max hunters arrow coming out other side a foot. The best is I'm only paying 20$ a 3 pack.
