well i have tried this bolt twice up to now once for training and once for games. Iv tried it on both my ego markers and the bolt works flawless. its smoother than the nexus bolt and if im not mistaken a touch more accurate than previous bolts.
Another thing i noticed is that my tank had more air than it usually should of had, actaully it seemed to never run out. another good about the orings, less excess air leaving the housing of the bolt. (correct me if im wrong).
also i tried to chop with this bolt but i couldn seem to get it right. i.e, turning eyes off and shooting paint, or tryig to rip with the last balls left in the loader. even brittle training paint in chilly weather. stuff like that. normally my marker would of chopped but this time round it didnt even seem to care.
if some fo you ask about speed... well i cant say i saw a difference, i dont think this bolt was made for that. it managed 24 bps on my nexus and 25 on my 06, but i never pushed it for more (due to economy on paint).. i will update my review later on so stay tuned.
like the manufacture and the pro's said, its help us shoot the most brittle paint. well belive it, the two times iv used it, out of the 8 ppl i was the only person that didnt chop and i was the only person using this bolt...
everyone hates choping paint during games not only cos its time consuming but it brings down performance.
Its smooth, air efficient and dont chop. so you do the math.
Plus its a Planet Eclipse product, you cant go wrong! ill give it a 9 cos nothing is perfect unless its worth it, and plus its a few grams heavy than the nexus

Eliminates Ball Breakage, Barely Shows out the back of the bolt area (looks sweet)
Well i have always had minor problems with breaking paint in my ego i thought the DART Bolt would help but i still broke paint. well after selling it and buying it back i decided to give this bolt a try. I must say it was money well spent. i no longer break any paint in my ego and the fact that it barely shows out the bolt area is cool. it also helps i think with kick as between this bolt and my titanium ram my ego has almost nil kick.
Buy it. it is worth the cost. as it eliminates ball breakage in your ego.
Reduces ball breakage in breech
Havent had any problems with my bolt.
Got this bolt in my 06 ego and it works great! The first time i played with it, i had no breaks all day. And thats what you can (most likely) expect from this bolt. The two o-rings near the front of the bolt help as shock absorbers helping with less ball breakage. Im not sure, but my ego is quieter now with this bolt in it. (Note: i have virtue and variuos other ups that contribute to less noise) It is very easy to clean. Very nice pull out pin and awesome design.
This is the best bolt for the ego out right now. If you have some money go buy it. If not your stock will do just fine.... FINE BOLT!
ETek Ego with Tadao m7 board
Halo V35 victory with rip drive
Able to shoot brittle paint
Even lesser chance of chops
Lighter then stock
Got this on saturday, it is great. I tryed everything I could to chop with it. Freezing a paint ball ( make it brittle), shooting fast even with the last few balls in the hopper. I even put a ball half way in to simulate a miss feed and still no chops. This bolt is great does exactly what it was made to do. It also reduces a bit of the tiny kick you had.
Great upgrade for your ego or etek. Definatly reccomend it.

45 4500 hp crossfire tank
tadao board w/ white leds
Lighter than stock
Bought this bolt for 50 dollars with the ti rammer and got an extra 20-30 extra shots per fill. no more gap around bolt. Make a nicer seal with o-ring. Noticed little bit better accuracy. And maybe few ft per second difference. But for 50 dollars and no more chops cause of weak paint. Than this upgrade deserves a ten.
