I agree with dave, they shoot like a field point and leave a blood trail like you've never seen. I have used them for 3 yrs now and will use them again this year. They do rust but the blades are sharp and with a little film of vaseline they will hold up fine.
I too shoot the gold tip gladiator. as far as i'm concerned they are a fantastic broadhead. with them you get the best of both worlds. fixed and mechanical. i've killed a few BIG bears with them and have had nothing but devastating results. last bear was shot at 35 yards quartering away and the arrow broke the last 2 ribs going in , destroyed the vitals, and passed completely through the opposite shoulder blade. bear went 10 yards. and blood............ all i can say is HOLY COW!!!!!!!!!!! i've seen moose taken with them too with similar results. very very sharp blades out of the package. i think you will have good luck with them....
they are great as far as im concerned. ive shot 5 critters with them all pass tru's , all died within sight , the last was a big exotic ram(250 lb) cut 1 rib going in and 2 coming out , had a guy ask -what did you shoot him with a 300 mag? and he was looking at the entrance wound !! use you ceramic sharpening sticks and hit them 2 or 3 licks on each blade
A few years back a buddy of mine took a moose with the 125 grain version. Put an entrance hole in 'im that was big enough to stick four fingers in. The moose piled up within 30 yards and hit so hard we had to dig one antler out of the ground. That sold me on them.
