Experience:

Products Used:
Original stock bolt
Marker Setup: 03' WGP Autococker Vert Feed--Orr-acle pneumatics, DV delrin bolt, Dye Excel Barrel, Dye Sticky grips, Knapp ball detent Orr-acle pnuematics
Strengths: Very lightweight, reduces reciprocating mass for quick response
Weaknesses: Chops paint (in my marker)
Review: I installed this and I can tell the difference in the shooting feel of the marker, it has even less kick (although the kick is almost non-existent). The looks are not fancy but it's inside the gun so you wont see it, but you will notice that it's a little smoother...in addition to the Orr-acle pneumatics this thing seriously rocks.

And that whole self-lubrication thing without the need for o-rings is amazing.

After two days out on the field and pure problems with chopping paint, which I thought was my hopper, I found out, in back yard tests, that this bolt was chopping the paint and it caused some blowback up through the vertical feed port thus blowing the paint back into the hopper making it look like the hopper was the culprit.

On the second day, of paintballing, I used four other hoppers and after each game I found paint in the hopper, I was confused. I messed with the timing and still the problem persisted. Near the end of the day I put the stock bolt back in and used a regular gravity feed hopper instead of my 'Revi' and I had no problems. I was convinced it was my hopper. I went home & tore my marker apart and cleaned and re-timed it (Autococker) went in the back yard and began shooting slowly and it chopped paint, then I cleaned it tried the DV delrin bolt again and it chopped again. So I cleaned it out again put in the DV bolt and put my mouth over the feed port and shot the marker and I could feel the blowback...I tried the same test with the stock bolt and nothing...no blowback felt and no chopped paint even after I began to rip shots (or lay a string of paint).
Conclusion: Very nice upgrade for your marker, because of the lighter weight but this bolt in MY marker chopped paint like a Ginsu!
