new to the forum, question about a bolt

Hello everyone. New the the forum. I recently got back into paintball. Havent played in about a year. Back when i played alot i was using a stingray II. Well now I have a Spyder Victor II. Not the best one, but it serves its purpose good. well i recently started modding the gun. I put an e-marker trigger on, Progressive 14" barrel, Gunhead M-4 Stock, and a VL Quantum hopper. Well I came across one big problem. I am chopping balls like crazy. I usually shoot with semi auto, but i like to use the 3 round burst. and it is really bad on full auto, but even on semi auto it was chopping them. So I figured I should get a new bolt. My only problem, is i never got this deep into the guns before and I dont know a good one to get. Also anything else to help against chopping balls. I was using PMI balls, not the best but I know they arent that bad either. Thanks guys for any help.

get a new hopper, thats why your chopping. A revy, reloader. Or a egg or halo/reloader B

your problem isnt your bolt, get a faster hopper.
if you really want a new bolt, get a Shocktech Supafly, but it wont help you much with chops.
just get a faste rhopper. i suggest an EVO II or a Halo B.
if you want to conserve money a bit, then get a Revvy or Empire Reloader

Thanks guys. ill look into those hoppers. Halo B would be nice but I have seen the price on those. Not cheap. Ill check out the empire and revvy.

I was looking at the Spyder ACS bolt. any experiences with those? I have heard about the shocktech one, when i was searching and reading through another forum. just couldnt seem to find one that will fit my gun

all you need is a faster hopper. I suggest empire reloader. For the price, it does its job good.

yeah, everyone has pretty much said it... faster hopper. ditch the quantum. it's garbage. revvy is better, but it's not as good as a halo. (i have a revvy, friend has a halo TSA)
