is this the superfly bolt?

I was looking for a cheap way to increase the accuracy and possible range of my 98 custom. I found a superfly bolt on paintballgear.com. I went to shop4paintball.com and found this bolt. Its a shocktech but is it the same one?bolt Btw, i do have other upgrades for my 98 such as a new barrel, electronic hopper etc.

accuracy is determined mainly by your paint to bore matchup, bolts do little more than increase air efficency and reduce ball breakage. And it's not possible to change your guns 'range' without increasing you velocity. The velocity limit at most fields is 30 fps. "This allows users to turn down velocity pressures and still keep the gun shooting at the 280-300fps limit. Less pressure means less chance of a ball break"
says exactly that in the link. If you have the money and want to upgrade your 98, it's still a worthwhile upgrade, but if you're expecting changes ina ccuracy and range, you're going to be dissapointed

Shocktech makes the Superfly bolt, so yes. That's it.

Like blue said, It won't really increase the accuracy or range. Someone did a test once that showed a *small* increase in consistant accuracy with the new bolt. Range won't be affected. And the accuracy increase was measured with the marker clamped to a table. The grouping at X distance was smaller (better) by one or two inches. Not exactly something you'll likely notice in a real life game.
