Products Used:
Stock bolt
Marker Setup: JT 6.0 setup w/ LP
Strengths: Inexpensive
Nylatron
Lighter than stock bolt (faster cyclic rate)
Open face-high flow
Weaknesses: Smaller diameter
Difficult inserting pin (ball protrudes too far)
Shallow ball detent slots
Scratch easily
Review: A good alternative to the stock bolt. SInce they didn't make one for the JT, I had to get the longer Timmy bolt instead. Referring to the negative points above, I had to shave the ball detents deeper and also really ram the pin into the hole by force. And there's nothing I can do about the smaller diameter of the bolt

Due to the fact that I had to get the Timmy bolt for my JT, my experience may not really attest to true quality of this bolt.
Conclusion: Get it if you're setup for LP and wants a relatively inexpensive alternative to the stock bolt, then get this.

Spyder Xtra Factory Bolt- Tiger Shark Bolt is much better, shoots quieter, faster, uses less CO2, and chops less balls.
Marker Setup: Kingman Spyder Xtra
Bottom Line removed
Beaver tail removed
12oz CO2 tank
Tiger Shark Bolt
Strengths: It shoots quieter, faster, uses less CO2, and chops less balls.
Weaknesses: Scratches inside of receiver. Self lubrication is not very good.
Review: I got the tiger shark bolt and immediately put it in my marker. It fit perfectly and when i used it out in the field it performed beautifully. When I stripped my gun down later to clean it i noticed the chamber was scratched beyond belief. I figured that the self-lubrication wasn't working so I oiled it with Break Free CLP. For a month or two it performed spectacularly. One day after a game I cleaned my gun nd was putting it back together and the bolt wouldn't fit in the chamber! I had to force it in with great strength. The bolt must have swelled up somehow. It might have been the Break-Free lubricant but i used that for a while with no problems. Well now i can't use the bolt and i have to switch back to the factory one. I'm somewhat disappointed but hey, you get what you pay for.
Conclusion: I only got to use it half the time I owned it so I gave it 5 out of 5.

TigerShark Bolt
300Psi @ 280fps
Strengths: Price
Nicely Machined
Weaknesses: none
Review: Just got back from the field, an to let you all know that this is a great product. I could not get the aka.. bolt to recock below 350psi, I tried with few different springs.. an its kept burping... when I tried.. to Bring.. to pressure.. down..

So I get TIGERBOLT in, it preformed great I got my gun dialed in with the tigerbolt @ 300Psi @ 280fps... I did not chop any paint, its seems IMO that it made my gun a lil quieter it worked flawlessly on the field, so yah I HIGHLY Reccomend this BOLT to anyone. good luck on you business I will recommend this bolt to all my frens
Conclusion: Buy It you won't regret it

I've only used the stock bolt.
Marker Setup: Spyder with a bunch of stuff
Strengths: It is light.
It is self lubricating.
Weaknesses: It shares a name with a brass eagle gun
Chopped bad once
Review: This bolt was definetely worth the 14 bucks I paid for it. The fact that I don't have to oil it is enough reason to buy it. It's also very light. I had no way of testing efficiency, but I'm sure this bolt is more efficient than the stock.
Last time I played, the bolt pinched a ball causing the bolt to get stuck. This never happened with my stock bolt even when I didn't use an agitated loader

EDIT: My bolt swelled so it won't even fit into my gun anymore. This is pretty lame.
Conclusion: The bolt is one of the last things you want to upgrade on a spyder, but if you decide to get one, this one is great (Especially for the price)
