The Shocktech Super Fly Bolt combines our 3 hole design with a cupped tip to cradle the ball. Our bolts have an aluminum shaft for strength and delrin anywhere the bolt may contact the inside of the gun for reduced friction.
The Shocktech Super Fly Bolt is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

I had to actually raise my pressure a tad to make the same velocity
The bolt is a good one. Right now there are not alot of bolts for the timmy so it is hard to compare but. Overall it is easier on your gun then the stock bolt and a little more consistent. I have also had less chops. The only thing about it is that it does not really make a huge difference. The stock bolt for the timmy is very good so it is hard for companies to make better bolts.
Overall it is a good bolt and provides many nice features but I believe is not worth spending a lot on. I got mine for 37 bucks off 888 paintball so it was worth it but I would not spend 80 bucks on it like att some off the local stores. If the price is right I would say get one.

It is suppose to decrease ball chopping by assuring equal pressure around the ball.
Alright.. here we go. I love shocktech, but I am really disappointed about this bolt. I only used it once, and I didn't use it. The most random thing and the last thing that could possibly happen to the bolt did. The pull pin that locks it in place with the hammer fell apart. Apparently the spring and ball baring that lock the pull pin in place fell out. I think its kind of funny, but at the same time it sucks because now I am out of a bolt. I would put my stock back in but the place I bought the s'tech bolt from kept it. *sigh* So I'm gonna get a replacement, and I will probably write a re-review on evaluating this product. It is just probably a freak happening, and if you wondering if I took any hard falls with it I didn't. I was working fine when I put it in and dry fired it, but when I picked it up from my back seat it was in pieces.. weird 'eh?
I am gonna have to rate this pretty low because of what happened. If anyone else has had this happen post a comment to my review, I would like to make sure I'm not the only one. I will write a re-review as soon as I get it replaced and start ripping again!

Shocktech Super Fly Bolt
Halo B w/rip drive
I got this bolt slightly used from a guy I played with and I think its pretty good. To be honest, I don't see that much actual performance difference but I do think that it really does help prolong the life of your ball detents. Also, I like the all delrin just because it is self lubricating and thus, one less thing for me worry about when I am playing. Plus if I have to clean the bore at all, I don't have to worry about any o-rings.
I think its bolt is pretty good. It does not greatly improve or destroy your performance but if you like all delrin (no o-rings) and ball detent grooves, give this bolt a look.
Ironmen Intimidator, Compressed air, Evo hopper and a Smart Parts AA barrel
Slots in the front so it wont mess up your ball detents.
The spring and ball bearing that hold the pin in the bolt popped out.
The main reason I bought this bolt was to keep the wear and tear off of my ball detents. It does a great job with that.
It would be a fine bolt if not for the problem with the pin. Apparently this is not an isolated case, since other reviewers also posted about it happening. This instantly renders the bolt useless. I have it temporarily fixed by shimming it with some plastic, but I am very disappointed.
Not worth anythign more than $10, I feel like I got ripped off. The bolt itself is well made, but if just one component is poorly made, it makes the whole thing poorly made.
Check it bolt, stock bolt, slotted snakeskin bolt....
blue to black 2k2 timmy
the good stuff
The bolt induces bounce (not really a strength)
darn bolt pin breaks
at first at the chrono I had to turn my front LPR pressure up to just over 100 PSI just to get a decent velocity, for some reason it made the timmy run like crap, and chopped even with eyes on.
So I cleaned it about 20 times and re adjusted my ram cap then it ran pretty good for the rest of the day. Then towards the end of the day, my bolt pin falls out. I found the ball and spring, then the ball wont fit in the hole any more, it is too small and falls through (maybe I lost a shroud or sumthing that holds it in place idk). so I went the rest of the day with the bolt pin loose, just couldnt make any fast movements with the gun.
It was decent when it worked
but way too much trouble to deal with and wouldn't reccommend this bolt.
naughty Timmy, blue sleeve
phat barrel kit
evil scion 68, 5000

Distribute pressure nicely
To big 4 internal bor of timmys
Heavy (increasedpressure required)
This bolt is a paper wieght (and a mighty good one I might add). But this bolt was designed with some other gun in mind, I think autocockers. But it is heavy so more pressure is required to operate the gun at 300fps. Also it is a little large for the bor size and that also creates pressure problems. I had to run my timmy at 100psi for the low pressure reg, and with the stock bolt I can run it at 50psi. It is also black and is hard to adjust if you have a adjustible ram cap.
Over all this bolt is not worth $50 or even $10 becuase it has problems and was not ment for the intimidator.

Less kick on the gun, quieter, smoother, more consistant, a little more accurate too
I had to turn up my pressure to keep it at a good velocity
I far as im concerned the bolt was worth my $45, it hasnt given me any problems, the gun is a lot smoother now that i have the bolt, its of cource a good step up from the stock bolt.
The eyes have no problem seein the bolt even tho its black, so that surprized me, my gun is a lot more consistant in its velocity w/ the new bolt even tho i had to up my pressure a little bit. And the gun makes a cool thumping sound when it shoots intead of a noisy blast.
I've had no ball chops w/ it, no ball breaks w/ it
If u want a new bolt this one is well affordable and as far as im concerned its reliable, but i did have to rase my pressure so its not gettin a perfect score
stock dragun the one bolt, which is a pretty darn nice bolt for a stocker

ummm its wont wear the breech like the stocker might. look nice
no difference in feel or anything
okay i got this bolt cause i heard lots of good things about shocktech but im definately going for a Spudnukl bolt next, because theirs is all nylatron and no aluminum. i have no affiliation with them, not like im advertising for them. i got the shocktech bolt in and was instantly dissapointed. i felt like i spent $45 on a stock-performing bolt. i thought this was an upgrade.....?
why oh why is it so heavy? if you are going to have a precise, responsive marker, then what were they thinking by making this darn thing so heavy for? think about it- does a paintball bolt REALLY go through enough abuse to warrant using aluminum for STRENGTH? if you said yes your crazy. from the first minute i saw this bolt i iwas dissappoited. chops paint as easy as stock.
spend the money elsewhere, unless you LIKE $45 dollar paperweights.

Doesnt scratch the gun and it doesnt need to be oiled
Bolt lowered velocity, had to turn up my pressure to get same fps over chrono
I like this bolt and it easily beats any stock bolts but given the money and the chance I would go out and buy an AKA lightning bolt (if they make them for timmy's) or I would buy the Check it Products Full Force bolt. My gun was locking up the first day I used the bolt and this bolt isn't the easiest on paint either. (Don't worry I didnt take points off because my gun was screwing up)
I know I have a Dragun Empire TES and not a Timmy but for those of you who dont know, they both take the same exact bolts!
I give it a 8 because I automatically take one point off because nothing is perfect then I go down or up from there.
If you have already used it and like it then buy it but if not I would recommend looking again! But I can't take off too many points because I didn't look at other bolts first
