Review: I purchased this bolt on somewhat of a whim. My marker has been having trouble re-cocking after playing for about an hour. This usually means chopped balls in the middle of a match. While I've been working on the problem and testing solutions, I became tired to stopping to clean out my gun every match that I started chopping.

I decided to pick up this bolt to help ease the pain of my troubleshooting. I'll admit that I was skeptical at first because i felt the bolt compression and I thought that for sure it would still chop.

I of course tested it out on my finger but waited for a real game to pass judgment.
Lo and behold, my dreaded failed re-cock occurred. However to my surprise, when I re-cocked it myself and pulled the trigger, I did not have a wad of paint fly out of my barrel. When my gun flaked out 2 more times, same story.

I am very happy with it, and though I've complained about the cost, if you think about how much a bolt with no venturi or even a delrin bolt would cost, it evens out when you consider that this also stops the chops.

I am a little concerned about the spring weakening. In my mind, if it becomes too weak, the very act of the bolt firing may cause it to compress reducing the efficiency of the whole firing process. Only time will tell.
Conclusion: If you were considering buying a new bolt, pay a little extra and pick this up. It's worth it.
You get a delrin, high flowing bolt that will reduce or eliminate chops.
9 out of 10
