(i think i got a defective bolt)
Review: ok, i dunno if i got a faulty bolt or what cause it seems like everyone has had good luck w/ them. right when i put the bolt in and shot it i noticed balls curvin like crazy. i actually curved a ball around my opponents bunker and hit him in the middle of the mask. i couldnt figure out what the problem was. i cleaned the gun out totally, switched springs, changed o rings, did almost everything i could think of. it wouldnt stop curvin. then at one point in time i would shoot my gun and it wouldnt send the bolt back to the ###### position. i had no clue what was wrong. so i switched back to my stock bolt and everything was fixed. as ive said before i probably just got a defective bolt or soemthin but incase i didnt, heres the review.
Conclusion: ok, when u get this test it out and see what it does. if it curves send the bolt back right away and tell them what it is doin. otherwise it is an ok bolt. i would give it a 1 but seein that i might have gotten a defective bolt im givin it a 3.
3 out of 10

I believe that acuracy is only determined by how perfectly the ball flies through the barrel...........i doubt that the bandit bolt would make a paintball curve so significantly
i think you should test other paint............then rereview the product............i have a nyte stick too..........and if a ball is too big......the ball curves a lot.
just my two cents

the thing is when i put the stock bolt in they stopped curvin so i do think it is the bolt

I had the same problem with my superfly, now i use the stock bolt.
You should try different paint and rereview

Yea I had the same problem too and then I called them to see whats wrong. They told me my velocity was too high and to change the spring. So I just put in a lighter valve spring and it shoots STRAIGHT! hope this helps!

"""""just put in a lighter valve spring and it shoots STRAIGHT! hope this helps!"""""
lighter valve spring = more valve dwell which = increase velocity, NOT DECREASE......pbcrazy 3 years experience and can't troubleshoot your spyder?
battleonpaint probably meant the hammer spring. pbcrazy if ur having problems with recocking then theres probably too much pressure going thru the bolt instead of recocking the hammer ie the bolt is too high flowing for ur high pressure setup.
