The Delrin surface is self-lubricating, this means greater protection from scratches on the inside of your main body. This bolt has the 3 port Shoctech venturi head. Bolt fits Compact,Compact Dlx,E-99,Classic 2+1,Shutter,TL Plus, X-TRA, Aggressor XT.
The Shocktech Delrin Bolt is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Stock bolt from Piranha and Spyder, Supafly... Supafly is the same thing basically.
Spyder AMG, too many upgrades to list. 68/4500 REGULATED tank.
High flow, non-absorbant material, less friction, light.
Well, I don't know... can't think of any.
Ok, some people need a couple more years of experience and a little more knowledge about paintball because the last review was totally misleading. I have no idea what he's talking about. Don't listen to him, he only has 3 months exp. And to contradict another guy with no brain, delrin is known NOT to swell. You got it mixed up. Besides, the material is "self-lubricating". Meaning you don't need to oil it. Ever. It's very open to provide for a good airflow. Because it's plastic, the bolt is lighter than most stock bolts.
It's a pretty darn good bolt. Self-lubricating, light, high-flow porting. It's marked at a good price, too. I'd definetely consider it if I were replacing my bolt.
Personally the strengths I have found were... greater air flow much more accurate
None. It all worked out on my spyder.
I thought it worked like a charm. It my shot and looks on the field a lot better. I love this little bolt. It was the best thing i've used. If anyone has any problems with it or me, we can settle this at the fields. I would definetly recommend this for any one that wants to make their shot a lot better. It all may be repeated, but HELL, it's all true.
I would say this is one bolt that that is worth the money. Hell, I loved it.

Since this is the first delron bolt that I have tried, I can't compare it to anything else. I can only list everything that was wrong.
1. The bolt is about 1/8" shorter than the stock bolt
2. The mounting hole on the back is larger than the allen head screw on the stock bolt.
3. There is no way to secure the pin that attaches to the lower part of the bolt assembly.
DO NOT BUY THIS BOLT. Even though it is the cheapest on the market that I found. It is a total waste of time

Doesn't blast the ball to bits.
O my! This bolt is the best thing I have bought for my gun. It just eliminated my paint breaking problem. BOOM GONE!!!! And It also gave me a more accurate firing lane as well as more distance. Dosen't even need to be oiled. I do suggest to buy it off ebay. I paid 17.50 w/ shipping, brand new.
Buy me! Get it off of Ebay. Saves you tons on cash.

Hard to cock sometimes
cant remove the Venutri lookin part
I bought this bolt with the best expectations. And they were 99% of the way filled. My only real problem with this bolt is how hard it is to cock. I often get finger cramps trying to cock it. But then again I have big fingers. Other than that, the bolt action is alot smoother, my marker is very slightly lighter, Im not breaking any balls when the bolt hits the ball(not chopping, but when cheap paint gets hit hard,) and It just looks cool.
If you want to ditch the O-rings, oil, and weight from the stock bolt, but this one.

This Shocktech Delrin Bolt is so good cause I felt the difference right away. Not only I chopped less balls (none yet) but I shot better. The cocking with the beavertail is hard but you only cock it once for a semi auto. Did I mention it doesn't need o-rings and oil cause it is made of delrin.
improvement on the stock bolt as there are no O-rings to change or break. Problems with cocking as it is a bit harder to grab hold of during a game. Accuracy was bit better and is more solidly constructed than the stock bolt. This item along with a new barrel enhance the marker. Only replacing the bolt does not make a huge difference.
decent upgrade for the spyder xtra, enhances the marker a bit but not a huge difference from the stock bolt
Stainless Steel Freak back with 13" AA front, Ricochot Ak hopper, Crossfire 68ci nitro tank, with low pressure set up. Shocketech Super fly bolt and cradle
Not much to say except, no more lube. Its easy to pull and actually helps the accuracy a little. It bothers me that i can actually shack the bolt a little while its in the gun, but beside that its nice. Just dont get lube on it, it well swell up, and that will be a big prob.
Nice, helps a little. Get it if you dont want O-rings

Light, air effecient, quieter
I got the short bolt so its short for my gun
I got this bolt last week from a website and i love it. i compared it to my acs bolt and it is lighter, quieter and more air effecient. i shot until a 9 oz co2 was empty and i got around 4 hoppers with the super fly and only 3 with the acs bolt. i have the pipe kit so my gun is pretty loud, but with the super fly i noticed a tremendous decrease in noise
Lightweight, self-lubricating, no scratches, no swelling.
None that I can think of.
I was looking for some upgrades and one of my dealers recommended I get this bolt. The first time I used it I noticed that the velocity is slightly higher, I think because of the fact that there is less friction with the internal gun body. It is easier to clean because it is self-lubricating so you don't have to oil it. You just wipe it off with a rag and your good to go. This bolt is so much lighter than the stock bolt which, when combined with other lightweight upgrades, really makes a difference. The other benefit is I have yet to chop a ball with this bolt.
I recommend this bolt for anyone looking to get a bolt upgrade. It does everything you would ever want an upgraded bolt to do.
