Review: Pro's
This detent is far more superior than the traditional ball detents. The ball detents tend to get stuff stuck in there, and cause problems. If you have a metal bolt, and a metal ball detent, you're going to be having deformities after a few cases of paint has gone through the marker. With the fang detent, you won't have to worry about that. The rubber fang would never damage your bolt, and it lasts a very long time. It's fully serviceable, and is cheap to replace the fang if it should wear out. My marker has cycled more than 15k times, and the fang is still holding up like new.

Dues to that it's rubber, the fang wedges in between the bolt and the body. When this happens, the bolt has a little more friction than normal when it needs to be cocked back. A little grease on the side of the bolt would fix this. You could also cut a groove on the bolt that would allow the fang to slip in to eliminate this minor issue. It's not noticeable at all when the marker is aired up, only for those that are looking for the ultimate smoothness in bolt action.
Conclusion: Great product from Planet Eclipse at a great price. With this detent, it's one less thing I have to service on my marker.
