Strengths: I had about a 25 fps jump in velocity with this bolt compared to my ANS quickpull on my GX3. This number is not totally reliable becuae I didn't do a side by side test. I just came back to my field and was shooting about 30 fps hot with my new bolt. My sidewinder is dead steady so I attribute the change to my new bolt.

Its smooth (for whatever its worth)

The quickpull system feels reliable to me. The bearing feel like they are sprung tighter than on my ANS, so I think that it is held in tighter. I'm not afraid at all that it will pop out unless I want it to. The other guy must not have had it all the way in.

Chrome looks SICK

Weaknesses: I have a GX3 and I couldn't immediatly fit it through my backblock. It fit my bolt tube like a wet dream, but I had to take a dremmel to my backblock to fit it in. I don't think its the bolts fault, just ANS, but if you have a GX3 you might want to keep it in mind.

Kind of heavy. If you are looking for a godlike PERFECT cocker, than the quickpull system adds weight that you don't need. I'd say it weighs half again as much as a superlight AKA lightning bolt (the lightest out there) Weight doesn't matter to me, someone who won't ever get past 6 or 7 bps, so I don't care.
Conclusion: Did I mention how SICK the chrome looks.

Good flow. Good looks. Easy strip. Smooth. Reasonable price. ($30). I'll give it the above average rating of 7. Things are WAY overrated on this sight, and the average is supposed to be 5. 7 is a compliment I reserve for only the best products. In my opinion, this bolt is superior in every way to the ANS quickpull, and to any other bolt except in terms of weight. If you have a GX3 and want a cosmetic upgrade with additional performance benefits, than this is the bolt for you.
