Tippman Custom98/A5 with flatline and with 32 Degree Nyte Stick 14"
Pretty low cost, good improvement in consistency
Had to make the link rod hole slightly larger
I've had great results with this bolt. It's not going to give you instant one inch groupings, but it does improve the consitency of your shots. Other reviews I've seen put it at no improvement from the stock bolt, but I disagree- I have seen improvements, though not as dramatic as other reviews on this site.
I did notice that as I was installing it that the rod that links the front bolt with the rear bolt fit into the hole of the bolt too tightly. I used a drill bit to widen the hole just slightly and it then fit like the stock bolt. (Don't make the hole deeper though.... you might go through to the inside of the bolt.)
Installation is the same as the stock bolt. A Good addition to this bolt would be an aluminum replacement of the power tube. (see other reviews of these power tubes.)
Wait for one on sale (I got mine for $15) and you won't be sorry. I have seen them for $30 and I think you could get more of an improvement in accuracy by spending $30 on an improved barrel or regulator. But still, this did improve my shots.

This bolt seemed to make my marker more accurate on full auto and turbo modes.
If you have $35 to spend on a bolt their is no weakness
At first i skeptical at purchising this bolt because i am restoring a old model 98 but the guy at pinnacle woods convinced me that if was a good investement, and i couldn't be happier that he did. this is one of the best upgrades in my opinion for the tippmann A-5

I got this bolt for my birthday and it shoots like a dream, its much straighter shooting then the stock bolt and it sends the balls alittle further. It also seened to be alittle quieter and move through the chamber a little quicker. It is also black and looks really cool when you look down the barrel at it(when there is no air supply on it and it is un loaded and the safety is on)
I love it and you should definatly go out and buy one, come on there only like 25 dollars, not bad for what you get.
