Made of frictionless delrin, this bolt uses space age wind force cyclonic effects to create an upward spin on the ball, to propel the ball further than gravity would allow. It also comes standard with the signature series E jewel attached to the rear of the bolt (obviously the key selling point). It also has a cool little twisty design to decrease surface friction.
The Evil Delrin Bolt is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
The best part about this bolt is that it reduces recoil. I have only tested this product on 100 paint balls so far so I will update this after a few thousand rounds. The bolt is made of delrin and has one o-ring at the front. It does have a venturi and it is not removeable. The cocking rod is loose and flimsey but it doesnt bother me. It fit perfectly in my marker (like it should). The bolt is much lighter than the stock bolt and it reduces recoil a lot. The blow by was lessened but is still their. Its not enough to even make a paintball jump.
UPDATE: I am still very happy with the performance of the bolt. It did drop the velocity of my gun about 15 fps but that is because of the weight of the bolt. I hope this review was helpfull.
I dont think this bolt is going to make my gun any more accurate so dont expect it. It says nothing on the package about giving the paintball an upwards spin and it doesnt look like its supposed to. I bought this to make my gun recoil less and have less blow by and it did both. The bolt does what the package says it will and I feel that it has been a good investment. The average is around 7 for this product and I fell that that is what it deserves. Dont get your hopes up to high its just a bolt!

spyder imagine body (no electro trigger) black
evil delrin bolt
14"smart parts teardrop black
quiet as hell
cocking rod is loose, easy fix though
i bought this bolt at my local shop for about 30 bucks and when i put it in my gun i noticed the cocking rod half is wobbly......and i know people on here whine about it all the time so i came up with a fix....just rap teflon tape around the part of the cockin rod that goes into the main bolt body....a few raps and it will never wiggles, works perefect for me.....and now my gun is so quiet......i plan on buying the evil vavle because i hear the evil bolt and evil vavle is a good combo
get out there and buy it....and do what did and use teflon tape if the loose cocking rod is bugging you
more accurate, quieter, won't scratch, better range, shoots even the worst paint-no problems
loose cocking rod, two piece design is a pain, needs evil valve to be effective
I've used this bolt with my stock valve and noticed very little if not any improvement. Someone at my local field said to try it with the evil valve because the two are designed to work with one another. Boy, I would like to shake that kid's hand. This is hands down the best setup I've ever used in my 10 years of paintball. (Yes I played when all there was were one pump pistols with 12 gram co2 cartridges and 10 round clips) This setup makes my gun so much quieter, more accurate, and improves my range. My gun is always the quietest on the field and it is much quoter than my friends minimag. I can hear the paintball whizzing away from me over the sound of the gun firing. Its great. (also see my review on the evil valve) I've also been able to shoot garbage paint like DBX practice grade when other people could not. It seems that even the worst paint still flies straight and true with this bolt and valve. My friend left some DBX balls in his trunk for 2 weeks and he tried to use them, but he was getting breaks like crazy. I tried them in my gun and they were dead on accurate with only 2 ball breaks out of 1000 shots. I even got my friend out with his own crappy paintballs! I can thank this evil bolt for all of this. The only problems I have noticed are the loose cocking rod, and the two piece design. The rod flops around a little, but it doesn't bother me too much. Its hard to assemble the gun sometimes with the two piece design. The bolt falls apart sometimes while you are putting it in the marker and while adding the striker and main spring. It can be very annoying. Oh, it is also hard to clean when you chop a ball from what I've heard, but I haven't chopped one yet! I've had no problems with the delrin bolt swelling up. I've oiled only the single o-ring as stated in the instructions, and then put it on to the bolt as directed. I've played in the rain with 85 degree heat and still no swelling problems. The major fall back to this bolt is that it should be used with the evil valve.
It improves almost every attribute of your marker when used with the evil valve. You will notice no improvement with a stock valve. A turbo valve could damage the bolt (split it in half). I would give it a 10, but since it needs another component to work well I'm giving it a 7. Don't get it unless you are planning to get the evil valve too. The two go great together. Trust me you won't be disappointed.

Cool evil jewl
Cocking rod is loose
That is it
I got this bolt and it fit perfectly in my marker. It looked really cool to. The only I noticed is that the cocking rod was somewhat loose. But that didnt matter to me. I took it out about a week later at operation paintball and I was nervous of how it would work with the mixed reviews I had heard about it. Well when I went to chrono I had my nitrogen tank on and the bolt even made my gun shoot alot more concistent. It also made it incredibly quiet even with all my other upgrades it sounded as quiet as a cocker. It was so cool!!!!. My first game It was really accurate and it stayed like that the whole day and I really liked it alot. I cant wait to use it again. Hopefully at Patriot Paintball this time. If I am not broke.LOL
Go buy this as quick as you can for your spyder and you wont regret it a single bit. It works for me and I know it will work for you. Especially with nitrogen. I give it a 10 because it is a perfect evil product.

venturi (lowers velocity slightly)
it is very nice looking and will not scratch up your internals, but it is just a bolt and bolts affect very little of accuracy and such. and it will make you slightly less air efficient because of its huge venturi. It also is sorta loose on the back because of its two peice construction
its ok, but it is just a bolt, not too much of an upgrade from a stock bolt if its well oiled. And if you oil this bolt it will swell which is not good

I was in the market for upgrading the stock bolt in my E-99 when I went to JT Military Surplus and asked them for a new Bolt. They recommended the Evil Delrin and i took a look at it. I wondered to myself...WHERE THE F*** WERE THE O-RINGS. As the owner explained to me that it is a new technology, the bolt itself didnt need o-rings and that it would be more accurate. I brought it to my friend's place and ran a small test. I tried out the Stock bolt and shot at a compost box about 100ft away and about 4/12 shots hit (2x 6-shot burst). Then i went inside, changed the bolt to the nice new Evil Delrin and in the same spot, aimed at the compost box and to my amazement...100% accurate. I found that the investment of 66$ CDN did make a difference.
if you are serious about accuracy....BUY THE DELRIN BOLT

*Couldn't get it to stop chopping paint at first
*Seems a little flimsy
Well It's a really cool bolt and it was easy to replace and its also really light. I like the fact that it seemed to increase my accuracy as well. The fact that it made my gun quieter was a plus as well. At first when I installed it I couldn't figure out why I kept chopping paint. I went to the paintball store to see if I should get new springs to compensate for the decrease in the weight of the bolt. They suggested I turn down my velocity. I don't know why I didn't think of that. So anyway, I tried that, and it worked great from then on. I can run it on full auto at 13bps and it works fine, not that I do, but it works great if I wanted to.
My final recommendation is that this bolt is a good bolt, but it seems like some people have had better luck with shockteck bolts or others. Me personally, once I got it to stop chopping paint because of my own stupidity, it worked great
VTL w/ Evil bolt, exp. chamber and 16" CMI barrel.
Lightweight, low price, more accurate shooting, distance and the jewel
pin does not fit in piranha
when i got the bolt i took my old one out of my marker and was installing the new one. The new pin did not fit to i had to use the one from my old bolt. So then i got it installed and went out to shoot it. It shot great. from close range (30 ft) i was landing shots right on top of each other. Then i backed up (80 ft) and was lobbing the balls as i always did with my stock bolt at that range. the shots went over the target and i had to compensate for my increased distance.
Overall i was happy with my purchase. if you are a beginner like me and need a better bolt for your spyder/ piranha then this is a great buy. your gun will shoot better and it is a great price.
Nice Flow (venturi), consistent, good looks, good accuracy, less noise, light weight, wobbles a bit but its not much to worry about. I use RPS Big Ball and it shoots very consistently. Good for any kind of player who doesn't want to scratch up their gun with a stock bolt.
This bolt is a great upgrade from any stock or non stock bolt.
