Review: I don't know what the problem with the dude with the 4/10 review was, but I've had absolutely NO problems with my Dytrix bolt(s) (maybe he just got a bad one?) I've got three of them (one in each of my guns). All my guns are coverted to LP though, running regulators, etc. They are all working great!!! (Call up the guys at C5 they gave me great customer service.)

I have not chopped a single ball with the bolt and I've run probably in the neighborhood of 3 cases of balls through the bolt that I got first. Sure, the rubber lip is kind of a gimmick, but it probably does seal the breach like they claim. My chronograph doesn't fluctuate very much at all, 280.5, 281.0, 279.8 etc...

The huge advantage to these things is the teflon rings on the bolt. They are slightly larger diameter than the aluminum of the bolt so the bolt actually rides on the teflon. This totally eliminates that scratching in the receiver and on the bolt that you see with the stock bolt. Teflon does not swell, so you can put a drop of oil on the teflon rings and the bolt just slides like butter... The teflon is slippery, but if you put a drop of oil on it makes the thing feel frictionless...

I called C5 last week to order another bolt and they said that they are working on a new version of this bolt that will work for either top/side/rear cocking spyders. The new bolt will accept the three different styles of cocking knobs.
Conclusion: Buy it. It's inexpensive and it works. (The picture on the top is for a side cocking bolt)

I think i got a bad one it was like a week after it came out. I used the non anti chop and it worked great but the bolt face unscrewed with that one to. And in my review i suggested the used of a regulator cause most of my problems seem to be to much pressure hitting the balls and busting them. But this is not anti chop like they say a rubber lip wont stop chopping but it is still really cheap. Well im gonna suggest this bolt to my friend with a spyder even tho he has tons of money so if his is bad to he can get a new one. Ill write a new review with the performance of his bolt. I think i got a bad bolt. Hmm.. I should of called C5 never thought of that man I'm dumb. Well ill update with the performance of his bolt. (I had a good paint to barrel match the balls would roll a littlebit so it wasnt a bad match.)
