Ok, well tonite i cut off the top section of that 2 circle thing that goes on the back my Pilot. This allows me to use any bolt. I have 3 bolts that im deciding about which to use.. I currently use the stock ACS, but i hear i should switch, BUT i dont want to spend money since the holidays are coming (I spend it on other people ;D) remember though, i am LP if that sways your decision. The three bolts i have are :

1) Stock ACS
2) Stock Xtra bolt (2 orings that came on it, and venturi free)
3) Shocktech Supafly, Long bolt.

I will test all three tomorrow, but just getting a jist about your guy's opiniion.

Ehhh... unfortunatly non of those bolts are well Inclined for a LP setup...

ACS has no orings... Stock Bolt is heavy.... and Super fly has the same issue the ACS did...

Out of those three the Stock will be your best bet.. But still not very good..

I recommend an ACP Blue bolt or an Alamo City Paintball bolt..

Well there a ton of bolts out there and everybody has their favorites. I like the Bandit Bolts because it gives the option of with or without o-rings and HP or LP application. Plus it is pre-drilled in the back of the bolt to either go top cocking (install a setscrew, spring and ball) or add a rear cocking rod. Here are a few links:

Another interesting bolt is the Low-Blow Bolt see below:

Lightened stock bolt was the workhorse in my old Spyder... Never had any problems with it.

Edit: Just noticed ANOTHER "what bolt should I get?" thread posted two (2) under this one. Can you please use the search next time to not clutter the boards as much, Ross? Thanks!
