Review: When I got it I immediately put it in my imagine and stuck my finger down the feedneck and fired (without air), it worked perfectly. I then played around with trying to get paintballs chopped/jammed in there and it still worked like advertised. Then I aired it up, put on a VL200 and let it rip, zero chops. If I do this with my stock bolt I get chops galore. You can hear a distinctive noise when the bolt prevents a chop, sounds like a muffled shot, and the bolt continues to cycle like normal, you hardly know you almost chopped. The bolt does not dent the ball in any way. The bolt fit my spyder well, about the same as the stock bolt. The delrin bolt worked fine without oiling too. There is also a slightly reduced weight, so there might be slight velocity increases, however I did not test it over a chrono.
Conclusion: Very good bolt, good for the price considering other bolts cost about the same. Zero chops what so ever. I highly recomend it as a cheap way to stop chopping.

I was wondering if after it prevents a chop do you have to re-cock the bolt, because with mine(I just got it)and I'm not sure if it prevented a chop or not because I had to re-cock it.
