Got a couple of questions about it.
First one is has anyone tried it and is it good for lp? I've read it has an adjustable venturi? I thought venturis weren't good.
Second, I'm kind of confused one site says i need the regular one and one says i need the fenix one for my pilot.Help?

as far as giving it a review i dont know anybody thats tried it but as i understand, the wasp fenix one is top cocking while the wasp is side cocking i think. Their both made of a delrin like self lube material called POM. And its the seal that's adjustable so you can fit it to the diameter of your gun. check out the site for yourself but it says the wasp fenix fits the pilot. Note though that it doesnt say pilot ACS. i dont think that the 2 guns would have any difference but the bolt but i dont know. if anybody tries it though let me know how this bolt works cuz ive been curious myself.

as far as the bolt goes..when i compare this to the superfly and im comparing by construction and not experience(so please forgive me if my conclusion has no logic to it) it seems the wasp would have more blowback only because of the shape.
Superfly: this bolt is longer in the front and excess air is carried through the barrel behind the paint ball(the superfly has a vent at the bottom for the excess air to travel through)
Wasp: and like I said this is from looking at it( the front part of the bolt is shorter and there is no vents in the bolt forcing excess air in any direction...this means that some of the excess air will flow behind the paintball and some will cause blow back in the hopper.
Conclusion: Like i said this go by looking at the construction of both bolts..What I do know is that blowback isn't a problem at all if you have a force feed hopper and as far as I know the majority that is buyin a $60 bolt will have a force feed hopper so its nothing to worry about...but this is something to consider for those who don't have a force feed hopper and are buying upgrades in the wrong order.
anyone please correct me if you find any of my info to be incorrect and I take constructive critism well. We are all here to learn more aren't we?
Thanks guys :)
