Aftermarket bolt for the Diablo Wrath. Made of Nylatron. Weighs 1/2 what the stock aluminum bolt does. Self-lubricating. Angled air inlet. One o-ring pre-attached with cut out for second o-ring if desired (provided in package).
The Spudnuk'l Nylatron Bolt is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
I took it out and I have to say the look is definetly unique to it. I actually quite like it, it stands out while looking good. So I took out my old stock aluminum bolt and I was blown away by the weight difference. I had it measured at the field to be about half the weight of the stock bolt. Only downside to having this so far is that you have to use the stock bolt pin with it, but that's no biggie. Also the bolt features 2 o-ring groves so you can use o-ring to improve the efficency even more. Mine came with 2 o-rings on it and another 2 spare, so no problems with that.
Now to the stats.
Predator Paintball Park, outdoor chrono station. Light humidity, about 75 degrees F.
Pure Energy 68/3000
X-Ball Bronze Podium Series paint.
Stock Aluminum Bolt
Shooting about 1bps to allow for full cycle and recharge.
Dry Firing:568 shots
1st test w/paint:572 shots
2nd test w/paint: 588 shots
Average with paint:580 shots.
Then repeated test using The Spudnuk'l Nylatron Bolt
Again, shootin 1bps to allow for cycle and recharge.
Dry Firing:624 shots
1st test w/paint: 659 shots.
2nd test w/paint:646 shots
Average with paint:652.5 shots
Average difference between Aluminum and Spudnuk'l bolt:72.5 shots
Also to be noted is the reduction of kick and the huge reduction in noise that the Spudnuk'l bolt prevides. The gun is almost too quiet.
I would say to any Wrath owner out there to buy this bolt, for $35 how could you not? This is one thing that you will love from the second you open the package. The only beef that I had with it is having to use the stock bolt pin with it, but other wise, no problems.
There is only one person who you can purchase these from, and you can find all the info you need here
Edit:Alright, for some stupid reason I can't edit the 2 to be right after the 5 so make sure that you have a 2 at the end of that URL when you put it in the URL bar, otherwise you'll go to the wrong thread.

Price when compared to a few Delrin bolts coming out/out
Well I have only had my marker for a short while and the bolt arrived on the same day. Until I field it, I don't want to go on about it too much, but I did at least test it....and was VERY impressed. The bolt arrived in a very professional package with full instruction and a warranty. Build quality is flawless! The self lubricating properties of this bolt is no lie. I could not find any binding and it fit into the chamber flush even with o-rings (this is the only thing on the bolt that needs lubrication. When held in your hand you can feel just how much weight difference there is in the two bolts. This helps a little with the kick that the Wrath produces and help to cycle faster. The only downside and its not really a big one at all....it is a little pricer than the factory delrin bolt offered by NPS and Alamo City PB, but believe me I would much rather buy this than those.
I would totally reccomend this product to anyone based on inital tests. I will try to update once it has been used in the field. If you are trying to decide on this versus other delrin bolts.....go with this! You will not be disappointed.
Diablo Wrath 2nd gen Blue
-BL Torpedo reg
My wrath chopped like no other so I bought the first new bolt that i could and It happened to be the Spudnk'l Delrin (Not Nylatron) bolt. I got it very fast and put the o-rings on because I was getting blowback with the stock bolt. Now I don't chop and have no blowback. This bolt let me use the Wrath to it's full potential. It improved my markers effeciency due to it's larger and angeled intake hole.
This product did everything it was advertized to do. Improved my Wrath a lot.
