lowrlevelracin Friday, April 30th, 2004
Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
6 months
Products Used:
stock dragun the one bolt, which is a pretty darn nice bolt for a stocker
Marker Setup: 2004 Dragun "The One" Empire barrel kit, PB bullet drop forward, Bob Long Torpedo Reg, Macroline, Shock Tech Superfly bolt, HPA, pressure is at about 200 psi. Halo B with rip drive
Strengths: ummm its wont wear the breech like the stocker might. look nice
Weaknesses: heavy
no difference in feel or anything
Review: okay i got this bolt cause i heard lots of good things about shocktech but im definately going for a Spudnukl bolt next, because theirs is all nylatron and no aluminum. i have no affiliation with them, not like im advertising for them. i got the shocktech bolt in and was instantly dissapointed. i felt like i spent $45 on a stock-performing bolt. i thought this was an upgrade.....?

why oh why is it so heavy? if you are going to have a precise, responsive marker, then what were they thinking by making this darn thing so heavy for? think about it- does a paintball bolt REALLY go through enough abuse to warrant using aluminum for STRENGTH? if you said yes your crazy. from the first minute i saw this bolt i iwas dissappoited. chops paint as easy as stock.

Conclusion: spend the money elsewhere, unless you LIKE $45 dollar paperweights.
4 out of 10

well, although it is heavier than most derlin bolts, it isn't much heavier and although you might experience chopping with this bolt installed right off the bat, it is not the bolt's problem, you just need to re-adjust the pressure and dwell of your gun, as you would have to do with an new bolt to get the maximum preformance out of it.
