I've done Gladiator with only hexes so I can attest to the bomber hex placements on that route. Those hex placements don't really interfere with the hand jamBs either.

Back on topic, I was belaying a climber on Juggernaut at Frog when two large cams ripped out when the climber slumped back on the top piece which admittedly was only on tips. The next cam down was one of those HB single stem jobs. Interesting in a macabre sort of a way seeing that amount of dust explode from a crack. The HB it seems rotated its cams around the axle and thus became useless when the two cams on one side of the axle rotated past the point where any meaningful contact was lost.
