What's the most high-flowing bolt?

Is it still the AKA lightning bolt? I'm going to low pressure, and just wanted to make sure. OtterSCcustoms said it was, but i'm not sure how old the article was, or if another better one has come out. thx

any bolt without a venturi is pretty much high-flowing. You can make your stock bolt good for a LP setup if you wanted..

You could get the new ACP blue bolt. It suppose to be pretty equivilent to the lightning bolt and it's made of nylon i believe

yea theres a guy at my field that has the acs bolt. he's not too impressed with it. seemed like an ok concept. i guess if you really really worrying about chopping, you could put some eyes on your gun. anyone got any links to the "blue bolt"?

this blue bolt looks good, but are there any testings out there? and experiments with the lightning vs the blue bolt? i just like seeing my benchmarks instead of making a blind buy

The blue bolt has been having some production problems... not of ACP but of the manufactures. They have done some extensive tests like keeping the bolt in water for couple of day and no swelling accured. and has slots for orings if you want but not needed.

Remember, just because something cost more doesnt mean its better or worth the extra $$$ compared to the others. Either way you still have a real nice bolt.

Why didnt you look into Spudnukl, Otter tested it on his site and it was right behind the AKA and cost half as much. Thats the first and only aftermarket bolt I used and was great and recommend it to everyone and it got great reviews from them all.........

# Nylatron-- Nylon and solid lubricant combined
# Premium Food Grade Delrin
# Milled ball detent groove
# Slicker Surface
# Metric 4x.7 and 10-32 threads
# Greater self lubricating properties.
# Highly resistance to oils, which means no swelling!
# Anti-Ball paintball "hop" design
# High Flow for low pressure bolts.
# Oring grooves to control blowback (if necessary)

The first Nylatron bolt was the Spudnukl and it performed so well that other companies jumped on it to.

yea the spudnukl is awesome too. i just felt like getting his top of the list at the time. i know they have near identical performance, i'm just an idiot i'm the type of person that does so much research on the stuff i buy(computer parts,whatever else) i read lots of reviews. ususally i dont splurge, but i find the happy medium where price/performance come together. i guess i splurged this time. it wont hurt too much i guess. well, i could keep the AKA and if the blue comes out to be better when i find some numbers, i could put it in my other spyder i guess (thad be later though). i'm trying to fully pimp this thing out. i know and preach that this wont make a player any better, this is just a project i'd like to do. after using that mech frame for so long, the electric is fun, i lightened it with the two screws and you cant really even see it move when you shoot. i feel like i have so much controll over it. i play the djembe drum and do a lot of finger movement on there. i can even do beats on the trigger and the solenoid responds. anyway i'm on a rampage with the talking so i'll end this post with a nice asterik*

Yea I know how you feel but the Spud isnt a medium type bolt its still top of the line and has more features than the AKA. With the $$$ saved you could have bought some other things like a spring kit, spare parts, other cosmetic upgrade looks. But hey its your $$$ do what you will and have fun just try to be "smarter" with it.
