Default Eastman Broadheads?

Has anyone used these heads? Saw some at WalMart and was curious how they performed.

I was not impressed, but it has been a few years ago.

Maybe they have improved

For the most part they are pretty poor heads in design and quality. one exception is there new cut on contact head. The first cut XT is a pretty darn good head, although it's priced more with the better heads on the market, the quality and construction are also there.

I used some expandables, I killed about 5 deer with them, but i had them fail 3 times. I shot a spike right in the shoulder and I swear the damn thing bounced off, maybe 1" of penetration, then I shot a nice 8 pointer, right behind the shoulder again about 4" of penetration, deer runs off and I am like WTF just happened. 1 hog, no penetration.
I dont know what happens, why one day they work fine and the next they dont. Its like they crumple on impact , like how a car crumples during a collision, and they absorb all the energy and no penetration.
I gave up on expandables, fixed blades from now on.
