I have used up my old stock of broadheads and need more. I have tried them all, but none come close to the durability and absolute toughness as Ribtek.

It seems that the broadhead market operates like Walmart. If it is an excellent product, they will quit carrying it.

I found some on a site in austrailia. The heads cost $1.50 each, but it is $40 to ship them.

Is there ANYONE that still carries ribteks?

Thanks Bob. But I shoot 145 grain Wide. I need to have a steady source of them because I use them a lot.

PM me your email and I will give you address for Ribteks. They are still available for sale....and even with extra shipping are still cheaper than you could buy them through US stores before. I just bought a bunch of 160 and 190 broadheads.

How many do you need and might be able to hook you up out of my stash and just replace my own later.

keep em sharp,

Les--I've bought over 200 from Australia before and after Graham or whatever his name is, closed up shop. Think about buying more in volume and split the order with a couple of folks. It makes the price affordable with the excess shipping if you can't find any in the U.S. I thought I saw some advertised by a small shop just recently but I can't remember where. If I find it, I'll PM you.

I bought 100 from Australia and even with shipping was still cheaper than if I bought them here in states...

I think I am going to buy another 100 just in case there is a rush on them anytime soon ;)

keep em sharp,

I am in. If you put together an order, I would love to go in on it with you. Please keep me posted. I am not always able to get here online. Sending you my Email address. Thanks

I remember where I saw them: Traditional Fun Store lists 160 and 145 in stock at six for $25. Their link is:

www.shop.traditionalfun.com/

Hope this helps, or you can order from Australia. With the exchange rate and shipping 36 of the heavier heads coms to about $3.50 US each and if you order 100 or so, you can get the cost down to a little below $3. I wish we had more US dealers.

Ron;

PM sent!

Got it Kelly....

I may put in order for 150-200 and then sell what I dont want if you guys are game.

I will likely buy mostly 160gr with 25% being 190gr heads...in case I get stuck with them since that is all I shoot. If you have specifics on amount and sizes then PM me your wants...I will see how much it will cost for everyone in single order and divide shipping evenly between everyone to keep it simple.

keep em sharp,

Whatever became of the feller that used to be a regular poster here, years ago. Ribteker? Can't remember his name.

I think he owned the patent/business/rights or something.

He retired from what I understand...sold remainder of his inventory to an archery business...but kept his setup to make the broadheads. That is from the Aussies.... apparently he wont sell rights to the head or nobody has made an offer he will accept. LOL

Keep em sharp,

That website "traditionalfun" that carries Ribteks wants a lot for them. ($25 for 6). They used to be cheap. The fact that they are exceptional heads AND were cheap was a huge thing for me. I don't like to turn loose an arrow in the woods that will set me back a lot of $$.

I could order Magnus heads cheaper - though they curl when they hit anything hard like an elk shoulder or bone - or anything. Ribteks will stick into concrete and are re-usable.

I don't remember what they used to cost, but it seemed like it was only a little over $2 each. They cost (US) $1.50 in Australia but you have to pay $40 to ship an order.

If you like those heads, $25 for 6 ain't so bad and if they can stick in concrete and are reusable...what's the prob?? You won't find any good broadhead for $2 apiece unless you run into an individual and work a trade.

I found some last fall over on another site for about $15 for 6 and that was shipped. I just put them on my turkey arrows for May. I see them once in a while, glad to hear they are so tough.

Is there no market for them here in the states?

here is where you can buy the Ribteks yourself if you so desire and dont want to wait for a big order from myself or someone else to get into:

http://www.archeryshop.com.au/

Just dont buy the 160 or 180 weights so I will have some left LOL

Try Ken Horton at the Nocking Point in Winchester, Kan. He used to have a supply of them. Ph. 913-774-7172 Or E-Mail thenockingpoint.com lareva

That's Mike Horton Lareva, but I think you're right. Last time I saw Mike he had Ribteks in his trailer.

not a big deal to order them from link...I did it last Summer. Even with shipping from Australia it was still cheaper than buying them from vendors in America due to mark up on cost from manufacturer by local retailers.
