Dead On Paintball has improved on the stock Tippmann power tube and front bolt. It's very smooth because of a precision Teflon insert running on a precision CNC machined billet power tube. This upgrade will improve air efficiency and should increase cycle rate. It comes with the Response Trigger boss plugged via loctited set screw.
This is compatable with the Tippmann Response Trigger system.
The Dead On Paintball Custom 98 Pro-Seal is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Adco Red Dot Sight
CAR-15 Collapsable Stock
Star Fire Bolt
Dead-On Paintball Pro-Seal
Durable, fits well, good seal, slick tube
Simple bolt, a bit louder
The thing is definately worth the money. Anyone who has tried installing the dreaded Verticle Adaptor knows how flimsy the stock powertube is. I think I cracked mine trying to screw the thing in. This one is solid, and you have no problem gripping it to screw in the adaptor. No real setbacks, just the same as the stock only better material. I use my Star Fire bolt instead of the one it comes with. The bolt is fine though, if you still use the stock one it's a nice replacement.
Not an upgrade I would just outright buy, since it really doesn't add much to the performance of your gun. However, if your stock powertube breaks (which it will over time) then cough up the money and get this instead of a stock replacement. It's only 30 bucks and if you sell the bolt to a friend for 10 dollars (like I did) then it's really worth it. Only reason I'm not giving it a 10 is because it doesn't truely enhance gun performance.

its_much_faster and lighter that my chrono jumped from 290 up to no less than 450
this thing is freakin awesome. i had a r/t trigger but over a few months the bolt cracked where my r/t conencted back into the gun, and everytime i shot i lost air.. so i replaced my stock one with this dop pro-seal.. and damn.. its nice.. i was shooting at 290 constant with my stock.. once i put this in.. i could NOT shoot LESS than 450.. what a jump.. i had to cut my springs to get it back down.. thats some good stuff..

None its so simple
good product, but overpriced cuz no performance increase. Makes your gun run smoother and thus up the velocity (just put ur velocity down). Wont break cuz its metal.
im dddd ddd ddddd d dddd dddd dddf df fd as sd df d
taking asdf df f f
up asd df fd a
Get it if u want ur gun to look good on the inside and have cash to burn, or if ur stock powertube cracks. 8 cuz its overpriced
