Has anyone tried these broadheads? What are your likes and dislikes about these broadheads?

Used them about 8 years ago. Had the same luck, they didn't open up. All three heads came off of the threaded stud. THE absolute worst broad head I have ever used and would never use them again.

Shot a small doe in 2003 with them. Less than a 15 yard shot. Approximate 25 yard recovery. The doe froze in mid air and crashed. Pretty neat.

Recovered the arrow sticking in the ground. My lock-nock was busted off and there was no broadhead on my arrow (busted off at insert). No noteable blood trail.

Upon recovering the doe, I found the rest of the head on the ground near where she lay. Heart shot.

Though a quick recovery, I will not use Gladiators or Lock-nocks again. Love their shafts though!

1st and only deer I shot with that head.

I found it to be a solid head, and I've never had a problem with them, they open easily when they are supposed to , and make huge holes.
The thing I don't like about them, is that they stopped making them!!

These are my favorite BH's but they no longer make em for some reason. They leave awesome trails and large holes. I wish I had a few packs this year.

Gold tip Gladiator

I have access to several unopened 3 packs of 85 and 125 grain heads. The 125 are not Gladiators, not sure what they are. Look like they have an extra bleeder blade in the middle but other than that they look the same. Anyone interested PM me.

I really liked them huge holes, good blood, but were only good for one or two shots before the ferrel was cracked or they would open in flight.

Can you still find these broadheads? If so where? A friend of mine has used these for years and swears by them.
