Review: Now I must say, first off I had a bad experience with this bolt. When I first put it in, it was breaking paint. I'm not talking a few shots, I'm talking spraying broken paint, everywhere.
Then, later in the day, it started leaking air. I thought, wow talk about a waste of money. But instead of just giving up on it, I called TechT. Todd helped me work though it, and it turned out to be my gun! It was a combo of internal o-rings and velocity. So, having fixed all of the above, I greased up and stuck it back in my gun. Wow, almost NO kick!!! I know you've heard it before, but really, this was awesome!!!
Anyway, the highlights:

8.5 grams. This is, to my knowledge, the lightest bolt available for any gun. Period. Please correct me if Im wrong.
Because it weighs so little, you can lower your dwell. Alot. Right now mine is 16. That is without tuning it at all, so I know I can get it lower. Todd at TechT said he normally recomends a dwell of 10-15, so keep that in mind.......
Yeah, I know this is kinda like Weight, but just stay with me.....
The actual bolt its self is about the size of my thumb. Now the way this is possible is because it uses a back plug to seal of the back of the firing can. So its just air between the tail of the bolt and the back plug. Now, if you don't get that, don't worry. Your not stupid, or anything. I'm bad at explaining this kind of thing. So, its all me...
Ok, well I cant tell you about air efficiency, because I haven't gotten a chance to shoot it enough to give you an exact number. But, don't worry, I'm playing this Saturday, I will keep you updated.
Well this is pretty much the result of weight and Size, so not much to say here. But this is the lightest, smallest bolt, so that would make this the fastest, you know...

Ok, so having played with the L7 over the weekend, I can say for sure that this bolt is amazing!! Very little kick with paint, you can hardly feel it at all.
It is also very quiet, put of this is due my my barrel, but all the same.....
I put my dwell at 13 after playing most of the day with a dwell of 16. I was just playing at a field with some friends, and we didnt have a chrono, so I cant say about consistency.
As for air efficiency, I got about 1900 shots out of my 70/4500, give or take 100ish. So, judge for your self...
Conclusion: Ok, so you guys tracking with me? Lightest, smallest, Fastest. Sounds good to me. Yup, well, I will see you guys on the field. Be cool.
