Review: I was recently trying to upgrade my entire autococker. Basically, take anything stock, and make it lighter, faster, stronger, and overall... just better. I had it down to the Slik BB, the CCM Delrin BB, or the CCM series 5 lexan BB. I've heard too many people talk about how they've broken or deformed their slik block, and I've heard some people say the delrin is just too soft. So I decided to try out the lexan. Well, the retailer I ordered it from ACCIDENTALLY sent me the series 6, and I'll tell you... I'm glad they did. It went with my '04 prostock body so perfectly it almost looked like it was made for it. And let me also say... this thing is LIGHT. When I say light, I'm talking 8.7gr vs. 28.7gr for the stock BB. It also feels quite strong. Doesn't have any give to it, and fit my Slik bolt perfectly.

My only concern is for those who don't adjust it far out enough. Being that the threads are lexan, and not made of metal, there's a possibility that if the block came in contact w/the body too hard, or too often, that the threads could strip out. This has NOT happened to me, but I just see it as a possibility with any block that's not metal, especially delrin.
Conclusion: I haven't had it that long, so I can't vouch that it'll last forever, but I can say, it lasted an entire game day so far w/o any damage. I can't emphisize enough how light it is. Night and day difference. It's sturdy, and looks good too. I'll give it a 10, and if anything happens, i'll make sure I update my review.
