I was thinking about picking them up but was going to check the other stores to see if they have other colors first. We have so many Academy here and it seems they all may carry them. I have a few Blue ones that aren't Howlers.

If your lucky, you may still have a hefty supply.

Not sure what people think of the JCS rockets but I found them on Ebay on sale right now for $25 dz
Still not the best deal but I am going to try them out in my War Machine Bazooka.

Where is the Academy Sporting Good Store? All of my sources have now dried up with the exception of the blackmarket prices on Ebay and Amazon.

The Academy I'm finding them in are in San Antonio, TX. That would have been the last place I would have looked but I was looking for some bike stuff and ran into them. Once I figure where they were located I look at other Academy and found more. I believe they have a good stock in the back since I clear one store out and went back a couple of days later and found more. I may ask the manager to get me all of the ones they have.

Our guys that tried them werent crazy about them. But $25 for a dozen is a good price. Treat the inside of your barrel with some silicone spray or some talc to reduce the friction. Might give you some better results with them.



HazMat, that's what I'd do. I buy as many as I had money for.

Was that $25 a dozon or $25 for 6? Either way be carefully what you hit with them. All my short range hits damaged them and if theirs branches or bushes we ended up with damages to them. They did give you some more range but they are easy to destory.

nerf vortex rockets

ya acadamy is the best place for the vortex rockets. i've picked up around 40 or so in the past few months. i have 2 havocs and they work great in them. i live in the fort worth texas area and we have acadamy stores all over the place. if you don't have a store near you i'm sure you could go online and make an online order.

Nerfs!

Be aware that many large stores such as Target, K-Mart, Wal-mart, Toys R Us, Amazon, Academy, etc., that have huge toy sections will be getting in the next week or so their new toy shipments for Christmas. In these shipments could possibly include Nerf Vortex Pocket Rockets. If there are any left this will be the time to get them so be out on the watch for them. I have been told by many of these store managers that these Nerf rockets are on order and they expect more to be shipped. So if you had a supplier of different stores it would hurt sometime the next few weeks to look again. I just found five Nerfs today in a K-Mart and one in a Martins Food Store. So I havent given up the quest yet to find them. So when its seems I cannot find them anymore I run across them somewhere.

I just cruised K mart, Walmart, Toys R Us, Dollar this weekend and came up empty for Nerf Rockets. So keep your eyes open and BUG managment to carry the product.

A TrU near here had 5 this week. I took the 2 orange ones. Already had 3 blue that came with the 'Dyne, a green one from a while ago, and another I found on the field. I don't know whether to buy them all, leave a few, get 'em and sell 'em online... Guess the moral is they're out there if you keep looking.

May have found a solution that if it pans out will be 1/2 to 1/4 the cost of nerfs and still rocket shapped. (yea that means $2 rockets including shipping if these things work out)

Have the item on order will post update soon.
Also this same comp looks to be making an exact replica of the nerf football unknown price will try and get more details on this as well.

Found another one tucked away in a corner of the garage earlier. So my current stock is 41 regular mini Vortex rockets along with 4 Howlers. Howlers are apparently available still through some sites over in England but the conversion cost comes out to about $8 each and the first place I tried to buy any from doesn't ship to the U.S. It also seems that shipping on some of the other sites is very prohibitive with the price for each being somewhere around $12+ each.

I think this is the third time that Hasbro has 'stopped' making them since I got into 'tanking'. Hopefully it'll just be temporary. They're certainly no longer available at the Family Dollar stores I've checked recently. I'm regretting not picking up the 5 I saw at a Toys R Us down in Florida last month.

I can import Howlers and resale them. Only holding off because I feel pretty certain that Hasbro is going to rerelease the regular ones. We dont want to take a bath on 3000 to 5000 minimum order. But if Hasbro doesnt bring them back by end of September, then I wil probably be doing some importing. Unless someone else comes up with a better round at a good price.

I'd really love to see Hasbro re-release the Howlers here in the U.S. I've never really seen them in any paintball battles. Only shot a few here and there, mostly for testing. From what I've heard though having Howlers flying around in tank battles and from AT guys really adds a very cool aspect to a game.
