Greetings all. It's been a while but I'm back here now...

I was looking for a good place to buy Nerf pocket vortex footballs in bulk. I need a lot, (anywhere from 50-100), and all I can unearth are standard retail markets where you only buy one at a time at around five bucks each. I'd just like to know where I can find someplace to buy a crap-load of the things in bulk for cheaper so that I don't have to pay 500 dollars for a bunch of footballs.

If you're wondering what I'm shooting these out of, it's this cannon I built.

Thanks,
Mark

Tried it. I know you guys must be used to people asking stupid questions without searching, but I did already before I asked.

I was looking for something more like a bulk deal, with the individual unit price not of a concern, like buying a box or two of the footballs. If I were to buy them in any of these retail situations we all found, it would cost way to much money. I might contact Hasbro to see about it later on today, but I'm still open to suggestions, because they probably won't do a deal with me.

I've got 30 I could sell right now, and I can probably get more if you are interested...

Here is the thread.. but if you order in the quantity you are specifying, we can cut you a deal off of that..

Let me know (PM'd also)

Wow..

$8..

and from personal expeience, that type of fins fall apart fast.. of the 5 I took to the SPPL last year, I lost 1 or 2 per game because the fins would wear out/fall off/be missing chunks..

I think you can also order direct from Hasbro. It would have to be a bulk order because they have to make them. Just call them up and ask.
