.2 ounces difference doesn't seem that big of a deal. But.. I'd like these questions answered.

Worth it?
Dramatic kick decrease?
Even more efficiency?
Consistent, yes or no?

i like it because i dont like the look of the bolt sticking out of the back, its not a dramatic kick decrease but with everything else it will allow it to cycle faster or cycle at better ease. maybe alittle more efficient never test them both, yes its consistant. id say if u have the money its a nice upgrape, u could cut your bolt shorter and it would prolly be lighter then the boss bolt because the way its milled. the boss bolt can be turned upside down as to not shot the balls but just test. (forgot the accual wording lol)

So is it easier on paintballs by any chance? I don't want to get a bolt and have it turn out to be as bad as big sharp pointed object in a room filled with balloons.

Worth it? That depends on your perspective. I think yes.
Dramatic kick decrease? No, just slight.
Even more efficiency? Yes about 8%
Consistent, yes or no? slightly helps but a better main reg you help with that more.

Well, from what it seems it might be smarter just to cut the bolt (no offense boss) but for the performance increase, it dosen't seem worth it. I've also heard that cutting it will take plenty of kick out, but I could be wrong.

No offence taken. It just depends on who is buying if it is worth it. If you want a better fitting bolt that flows better and has a cupped face and rounded nose to reduce breaks. Then it's worth it. If you don't care about that stuff and don't want more shots per tank and don't want to lower your operating pressure a little then the stock bolt if perfectly fine.

I wouldnt cut the bolt and just buy the boss bolt. Its already been tested and proven and you know it will work instead of cutting the stock and risking the bolt's life.

It's $30 and makes a noticeable improvement beyond holding your hopper on or turning your air on/off....worth it to me....now if the Hybrids would get off of backorder already....LOL

Heres what I have got out of this :
Boss Bolt
Pros:
Lighter then stock bolt
Small
About 8% more efficient
Reduces kick
Easier on Paint
Cups balls slightly better
Lowers operating pressure
Better fit for Fusion (bore wise)
Cons:
Cost $30 (which isn't bad)
Heavier then cut stock bolt (most likely)

Cut Stock Bolt:
Pros:
Save $30
Most likely lighter then Boss
Small
Reduces kick
Lowers operating pressure
Cons:
Chance of messing up the mod
Not as gentle on paint
No real affect on efficiency

That's what I am assuming... let me know where I am wrong.
