Hyper Sport Works installed it for free.
It took a week to get an email back to my question of "are o-rings needed."
I never broke a ball before using this bolt. With it I broke about 10 balls per case. It really broke balls. It sucked balls.
A SCORE OF 5 IS FOR AN AVERAGE PRODUCT!!!!! The stock Shocker bolt is the average bolt, and this bolt performed far below the average.
Well there are alot of good things about this product. 1. Gas Effiency, makes the gun somewhat less a gas hog i used to get 1000 shots off a fill 3000 fill but now i can get about 1300. 2. Consistancey makes gun really consistant i was shootin 285 285 285 286 and that was using really old diablo rec paint. 3. Rate of fire increase, well it doesnt make your gun shoot faster but i think it makes less work fot the bolt. 4. Accuracy, well i didnt see an improvement in accuracy actually it made it a little less accurate but i think its because i just got it and didnt bother to lube up the orings yet. 5 Price, very good price only $30 cant beat that.
There isnt really anything thing to bad about this product, The only bad thing i can think of is i heard that if u lube the bolt it tends to swell but im not real sure on that one. Also because its made of delrin (a type of platic) it might be easier to break if u somehow dropped it or screwed it up. Also it seemed to make my gun a little less accurate but i just think it needs to be broken in and i should have lubed the orings before i took it outside and tested it. I dont know what else to say if this isnt long enough as u can see im trying to make as many words as possbile
All in all a great product, all shocker owners should get this. It increases your gas effiency makes your gun more consistant, makes your gun able to reach its max rate of fire and is not expensive as other bolts for other markers like the AKA lightning bolt $70 i think thats to much for a bolt. Well what are u sittin around still readin this review go out and by one and blast some people on the field. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO A+ product
There is no other that you can just buy...but if you have lots of cash you can have one made. But i wouldnt suggest that.
2000 Shocker, 68ci 3000 and 4500 psi, 12v revvy, freak barrel system
Great Idea...Havent got it to work yet.
Having to change the timing.
Ok this was easy to install which was nice. But personally I dont enjoy shooting 10-20 balls and then changing the timing again in a random attempt to get the correct timing. I still havent chopped a ball in the gun yet but the accuracy decreased quite a bit. But it is still managable.
Please can someone send me the approx. timing requirements for this bolt or post what you use. It would make things much easier.
2000 shocker turbo, vert reg, cp lighting drop, AA 12" barrel
Nothing that I could find Except it was easy to install and take off right away.
The concept seem great but, it does not perform as described. first of all the ball wiggles in the air if it shots straight, the ball goes left. right or straight down its really strange. I have a perfect barrel to ball match and chrono at 185 fps. the bolt has 3 large ports almost like the factory mag bolt. it seems to me that low pressure guns do not have the pressure to evenly distribute air over the ball creating hot spots like more air on one side than the other making the ball spin doe this make dense?
well, I took the bolt off right away and my factory bolt works 100000,0000 times better I wish it would have worked. I'm glad I tested it before I went to the field or else I would have had a fit over it. I had 2 friends over and they freaked on it (laughed) one of my freinds put it on his to make sure it was not my shocker (He thinks he is a master airsmith) itdid the same with his so this is how I reached my conclusion. even if it does save on gas you will spend more on balls trying to hit your target.
