Cool Green Screen help remembering the name of an older broadhead

Back in the late 90s and early 2000s there was an privately owned broadhead company that specialized in mechanical broadheads. This particular broadhead was the predecessor to the Schwacker.

Seems like the name was Arizona sumptin sumptin

Can yall help me out with this.

Thanx ahead

No it wasn't Vortex. These broadheads are exactly like Shwackers. A guy from either Arizona or New Mexico owned the company. I had his website at one time, but have lost it.

I’m thinking it was Sonoran Broadheads or something like that.

Sonoran was the precursor to what is now the Swacker Broadhead. Founded by a gentleman from Arizona. Do not remember his name right now.

Here's a visual reference on the Sonoran. I have 4 of the 7 Sonoran heads (which were made approximately between 95-2001) in my mechanical collection.

The "Arizona sumptin sumptin" you referenced may be one you are also remembering which was made around the same time period. It was called the Arrowzona Tigershark. Those 4 mechanical heads were produced in 1999.

The one on the far right was 75 grains if I remember right, I was wanting to get some if the Ol' Boy still sales them, but I think he sold out to Shwacker or maybe he owns Shwacker, heck I don't know. They are identical.

Green Screen is awesome.

Hey Micheal, if you are up to it, I would like to see your broadhead collection.

Yeah Micheal, the Arizona connection was where the company was located.
Thanx again to all that contributed

The one on the far right pictured is the 100 grain version, but you're right, they made a lighter 85 grain version as well.

I'll get some pictures of the collection and post them up.
