This version has a much thinner tail than the 1st gen bolt. The flutes are milled deeper, the neck and body are thinner, and the milled flutes, have flutes milled into them to reduce the surface contact area of the guide.
The 3DS Paintball 3rd Generation Air-O Bolt is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Weighs next to nothing
Made of Delron
The bolt is awsome. As soon as i cracked open the package I was immediately 'wowed'. The bolt is very sleek looking, light, you get a free sticker and it even comes with extra o-rings incase you kill the ones that are on the bolt, which is a big plus.
As soon as I put it in my gun and shot it, I noticed right away that my shots were getting better velocity and seemed to be shooting a tighter pattern.
The weight of the bolt is next to none since it is made of Delron, it is so light you can barely tell that you're even holding it. It makes the gun cycle quite a bit faster and no doubt will make it a little more efficient as you will be able to turn down your cocking pressure significantly if you were using a metal bolt.
Another plus was the customer service. I live in Canada, so I had it ordered from the U.S, and it made it over the border and to me in less than 10 business days which is pretty good. If you have any questions, 3DS replies very promptly and answers any questions you could come up with.
The bolt itself is machined excellently, it's a very sturdy rig, I can't imagine breaking it unintentionally.
This bolt is totally amazing. 10/10 for sure. I would recommend this product to anyone with a cocker, mech or electro. Why? Because it's cheap, the customer support was great, the product itself is great, performs amazingly, couldn't ask for anything better. This is THE greatest bolt around.

As stated above this bolt has awesome air flow! he forgot to mention its light!
NONE that i can see.
As stated in the above review, the guy mentioned that this bolt has great airflow. But he forgot to mention that this bolt is light as heck! The worrblade bolt that wgp makes which i might add is sweet, but not as sweet as this bolt. The lightness of the bolt cuts down on cycling time. Which is good because you can get more bps outta your cocker! Another unique quality it that the inlet hole is not straight drilled. This is good because it puts less turbulence on the paintball and spreading the air around the ball evenly for a straight flight.
Get this bolt. It is definately worth every penny. You also get like 10 extra orings for the bolt itself!

This bolt is awesome, it weighs next to nothing. it does what a bolt is expected to do nothing wrong it it, and the o-rings make it fit even better i always like bolts with o-rings because they tend to fit better, this bolt is made out of delrin and they design is ust awesome, even though you can't see it when you're playing it doesn't hurt to have a nice looking bolt :D

As far as bolts go this is an amazing piece of equippment. I could not imagine ever having to replace this bolt. I could however imagine the look on the face of my opponents when they see this thing on a stock cocker and want to have one for their E-blades. the first time I shot this bolt it was with crummy paint, and because a ball had broken in the bag i thing that accreditted to the slight curve to the right I experianced while shooting. I took the bolt again tonight and found that with a better case of paint it performes flawlessly.
this is the best bolt I have ever shot. period.
in my opinion it would be a waste to buy anything other than this bolt. if you spend more than 45 on a bolt other than this you are getting ripped off.

When I 1st bought this bolt I was thinking if something this light (8grams) would be tough enough for me to use on my raced autococker at high fire rates...
Decided to risk it and what can I say if not this was the best upgrade I made for my autococker, because it let me reduce the amount of weight being pulled with the backblock and doing this it greatly improved the rate of fire of my autococker.
Best bolt you can buy for a Autococker.
BUY ONE and you will see what I'm talking about.

This bolt is amazing. It is super light and increased my velocity and dropped my operating pressure quite a bit compared to stock bolt which was fairly heavy. Will definately tell a HUGE difference on the feild compared to diff bolt because it shoot tighter ball groupings and you seem to get some more range and not as much arc on paint.
If you love your cocker get it. Tigher ball groupings more range and is lightest out there.
This bolt is amazing. There is no bolt lighter, this bolt weighs 8 ounces (22 grams) which lets the gun cycle much faster with this bolt then any other bolt out there. It is awesome looking, you can have it dyed any color you wish. The customer service is incredible, the bolt is made with care. He says it takes him an hour to make 1 bolt which I believe because he wouldn't take 5 minutes to make a bolt which is crap and then just have to replace it because of his lifetime warranty.
If you don't have this bolt get it. Even if you already have a delrin bolt get this bolt still its incredible and it wont let you down.
