Strengths: Light weight, less blowback than stock
Weaknesses: hard to find, little pricey
Review: Being made of nylon helps this bolt primarily with weight. Its really light, and is machined really well. It fits the bolt chamber on my bushmaster really well. Better than the stock actually. Because its so light, helped a little bit with efficiency. I was able to turn the pressure down a bit. Don't really have many problems with chopping. But I do use an Eggo2

Because its still oring-less, it suffers from slight blowback. Its not as bad as it was with my stock bolt. If i wanted to completely eliminate the blowback, i'll need a Vapor II.

The only real downfall for the bolt is that its incredibly hard to find. I couldn't find one to buy brand new, i had to get it used. Price isn't a real big issue. I got mine for $30. I'm not even sure if they're made anymore.
Conclusion: Decent product. If you don't have a lot of blowback, this'll be a good bolt for you. I like it, and I plan on keeping it for some time.

They are still manufactured. Go to http://www.banditpaintball.com if you're looking for a new one. They are also in stores throughout the country. Go to www.banditbolts.com for a list of places to buy.
