-Very low and reasonably priced
-quieted my gun very noticably
-It LOOKS cheaply made and the color is wierd NO BIGGY
I heard about this bolt through a variety of forums so i decided what the heck it's only $30. I ordered it from www.spudnukl.com and i got the bolt in 3 days! It came with very good installation instructions (although i already knew how to install a new bolt), and it fit nicely in my E99. So i went outside to gas up my gun, and the first thing i noticed was that my gun no longer leaked before i cocked it! (this was good). Then i fired one shot and nearly dropped dead. I had to fire a couple more to believe what i was hearing, and that was... NOT A WHOLE LOT!!! My usually loud E99 was so quiet that my dog didn't even bark when i was shooting (which she always does) I had no problems with re-cocking or ball breaks. I was extremely happy and i would DEFIENTLY recommend this bolt to ANYBODY. IT'S ONLY $30 PEOPLE! SO GO OUT AND GET IT NOW! If you have any questions about this review, just email me at email@example.com
Go out and get it people... it's a flawless, cheap, and reliable bolt... and best of all, you don't need to oil it after every game!
No lubrication needed
No orings to replace
Pisspoor customer service
Extreme long wait for bolt delivery
Ran almost 2000 rounds through this in one day and did not pinch or break one ball. Seemed to improve accuracy by a good amount, and held up great under high rates of fire and always recocked without o-rings. I would recommend this bolt highly to any marker owner. This bolt would get a 10 but. The quality and design of the bolt no way reflects on the terrible customer service and sale dept. of Spudnuk'l, I waited almost a month with no contact and no bolt. When trying to contact them you will get no respose and their shipping is a joke. I am not the only one to have this problem with them, and if you ever do get a email from them it is a lie or some song and dance about they sent it out last week even though the tracking number shows it was sent out days after you complained not last week. I would love to tell someone to buy this bolt on quality and performance alone but for some reason they will sell you the bolt and wait sometimes over a month to finally ship it. Dealing with this company is a headache and someday I will say that it was worth the wait but as of now I am still ticked about waiting over a month for my bolt and being straight up lied to about it by Spudnuk'l. It is a good bolt though and I like it very much. They do have a repair and replacement policy but I can only imagine what dealing with that would be like.
Great bolt for high or low pressure(depending on what bolt you get)
Great design and preformance
If you don't need the bolt anytime soon you will be very happy

Getting the Product
I ordered a bolt from Spudnukl on October 20. It is now November 10 and still no bolt.
They wont answer emails and the phone number on the website is the wrong number.
Ordered Tiger Shark and received it in 5 days since it doesnt look like ill be getting this one.
Kingman Spyder Rodeo marker
SP Tear Drop 14" barrel
None. Never received it.
Never received the product.
Never heard from the seller.
I contacted the guy, asked about the possibility of shipping the bolt to Poland and paying in cash (Paypal didn't work for us then). He said no problem and we agreed on the price. I filled the envelope with $27 and never heard from the guy since. No bolt, no response to many inquires about the status of my order. No confirmation of cash reception or shipping my order. Nothing. It's almost year now since I got the idea of changing my bolt and still using the stock one.
Buy from him only via eBay - you can spoil his reputation that way and maybe this is the only way to get your bolt.

Almost no recoil
It raises your FPS (not really a weakness).
DELIVERY IS SLOW!
I got this bolt after 2 WEEKS! I swear, they must deliver this thing by hand for it to take that long. Anyways, it looks nice, is very light, and has O-ring grooves. I tested this out in my Spyder Imagine 2K4 as soon as I got it. I noticed a little daylight around the bolt but I ignored it. I shot it a few times and noticed MAJOR blow back. The balls would fly out of my feed neck and back into the hopper. I installed the O-rings it came with and the problem was fixed. First I tested it on single shot and it worked great. Then I noticed that as I increased the FPS, I was breaking balls. I was getting annoyed when I realized that it was just my FPS being too high. I also noticed how quite and how much less recoil there was. Oh yeah, this gun will NOT eat the insides of your gun like the retarded stock bolt will. This thing is great.
Great bolt, other than the delivery.

Special edition fade mech
spudknukl nylatron bolt

Faster cycle rates
Cheap($25)for an aftermarket bolt
i used my dragunfly at my friends house before i got the mylatron bolt and it chopped a few and it was pretty loud. After i got the bolt i noticed it was much quieter...you can barelly hear the gun. also i didn't chop any and i was shooting faster. this bolt looks wierd because it's white and it sticks out the back of my gun like an inch.
All in all this bolt is very good and i recomend it fully. you can get them on ebay for 25$

This was a great upgrade for my marker. Improved my ROF another 2-4 bps. I ran 600+ ball through my gun with out a chop or misfire. The paint I was using was over a month old and had some dimpling. The bolt actually improve my gun accuracy a little over the venturi bolt I was, so in concert with the barrel I was group at 50 ft a 4x4" area and at a 150ft a 6x8" area.
Key advantage over Delrin is it will not swell, do to oils or other liquids coming in contact with the bolt.
Now for the bad, customer service is not the best at this company, so if this is a critical upgrade try to contact them first to see if they have your model in stock. Waiting time is lengthy I heard. I have a 4 day delay I getting mine shipped, but could not get in touch with someone to find out if it shipped.
I will most likely purchase another bolt for a Piranha I own, but be fore warned they have terrible customer service.
Just got back from a 3 man turny I used this bolt the whole time it worked perfect I DIDNT CHOP ONCE on a JT 6.0!! the offical paintchopper!! I have a 3000 psi tank and it lasted 2 times as long as it usually does I love this bolt out of 1500 all different paint (mostly bigballs) 0 CHOPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
20 oz PMI CO2 Tank
Doesn't swell like Delrin
Cocking rod seems flimsy
I didn't notice much difference in the noise
This is a very nice aftermarket bolt, and I'm glad I got it for my Rodeo. I had to turn down the velocity of the stock setting because the bolt sends all the air directly to the ball. With lesser quality "house paint" it blows em to bits in the barrel. Once I corrected the velocity it shoots like a dream. I bought this on ebay for $20 plus shipping and it did take awhile. It's worth it if you don't need it right away. They say they are working on it though. The light weight of the bolt and the direct airflow is more efficient in gas consumption to so you'll get more shots per tank. All in all it's a very nice bolt. Good job Spudnuk'l...
Get it if you are think about upgrading your bolt. It's better than those other Delrin bolts because they will swell if you get paint on them. The you'll have an 80 dollar piece of junk. At the price you pay for Spudnuk'l bolts, you can't go wrong with this one. Get it! Gets a 9 only for the cocking rod but you can buy one that's threaded to take a cocker rod.

None so Far!
I recently got my bolt along with my new 3-A Barrel. The stock bolt and barrel just slung the balls anywhere it wanted, but when I put my new barrel along with my new Spudnukl bolt I was greatly surprised.
First off the Gun was much quieter with new barrel and Bolt,
Second, the Shot for Shot consistency was incredible.
Third, it seemed to caress my paint in such a way that it only broke about 5 balls out of 4000 rounds.
If your looking for a good buy for something to help you out that little bit. I would recommend this bolt. Many people claim there is nothing a new bolt will do for you, but Anything over the stock bolt is a vast improvment. I only give it a 9 because afterall i did chop some paint and nothing is perfect!
