Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month3 of 3 people found this review helpful.

Products Used:
GEN E bolt kit
Marker Setup: Matrix
Slam Bolt
mini trinity
AKA sidewinder
Strengths: efficiency and ability to customize bolt setup
Weaknesses: advertised bps lower than other bolt kits
Review: I just wanted to post that the SLAM bolt is VERY impressive.

However, I think the advertised bps and effieciency is pretty conservative. I'm trying to arrange to video an actual test at my local field. (i.e. setup the marker in a vise, load a bunch of pods and run them thru to measure shots per 68/4500). I have a strong suspesion that I'll get more than the advertised 1300.

I put the #16 O-ring on my sail and dropped the pressure significantly. I haven't noticed any difference in bps from my previous GEN E bolt. It's pretty tough to accurately measure bps with an LED tho - it feels like 15+ when fanning. I HAVE noticed a drastic improvment in efficiency!!!

I'm assuming that Aardy went conservative on advertised performance as a method of managing cust expectations. I love it when companies are responsible advertisers.

Anyhoo, kudos on another great bolt Aardy!!

Conclusion: i would reccommend this bolt to any matrix addict.
it offers the ability to customize your bolt setup and drastically improves efficiency.
personally i found any reduction in bps in unnoticable.
8 out of 10
