Doesn't really shine without a PBK lightweight ram. Too light in my Borg.
I bought this bolt (standard length) after adding the other upgrades to my Cyborg after having several conversations with Jim about the new snakeskin bolt. What little kick my 06 Cyborg once had is gone now and is about as smooth as any spool valve marker that I've shot. Good quality bolt, not cheap at all, doesn't swell, no problems with it what so ever.
When used in conjunction with the PBK delrin ram and either a lucky valve or 07 red valve, the bolt really shines because you can really feel everything just running smoother and sliding with ease without affecting accuracy in a bad way; if anything my Cyborg is more consistant in shot spread then with the stock bolt. A very note worthy upgrade and another awesome product from PBK.
EDIT: After using it for a few games my Borg developed a funny issue of not being able to shoot over 270 fps. Well, turns out with the addition of the bolt with my 07 valve and lightweight ram my internals were too light. The problem was fixed with the stock bolt being put back in.
However, this is not an issue with the bolt but rather my marker. My marker tolerances were different then some others so this upgrade did not help me after a while when it was broken in. It is still a good bolt and I would recommend it to those looking for a replacement over the stock bolt.
A very note worthy upgrade and another awesome product from PBK. While by itself it doesn't affect anything really noticably, once you add the pbk delrin ram and the lucky or 07 red valve the bolt really comes out and you can feel how much smoother everything is with virtually no kick at all.
9 out of 10
