That is for sure not what i would call Rock Solid Efficiency. I guess the platform was really never really cut out to be a case of paint off a 68 type gun.

Planet have never claimed that the Geo would shoot 2000 balls from a 68/4500 tank, so there is no reason to expect it to.

I do not believe that these upgrades will be provided for free to current Geo owners; not everyone needs a bolt that is compatible with Reballs, so not everyone needs to have this bolt - it isn't an absolutely essential item that every Geo owner must have.

However, Jack has stated that Planet will try and keep the cost of the new parts as low as they can.

Nobody knows the answers to that, though we are all hoping for an efficiency gain!

Nicky has obliquely mentioned that there could be a new can in the offing, but I've only really heard about or seen the different bolts that have been trialled.

The will definitely be a new Geo ST Bolt and Geo ST Can where ST stands for Soft Touch. The Geo ST Kit will comprise of both of these components along with two Geo Volume Restrictors that are Delrin parts designed to fit around the Prop Shaft to reduce the firing chamber volume when the user wants to shoot Reballs/Paintballs at lower velocities.

ETA on these kits is pre-World Cup

This kit sounds like it is mainly centered around making the Geo compatible with reballs. Does this kit improve performance in any other way (efficiency, stability, etc.)? I remember Jack Wood saying that they were looking at making it more than just a reball kit.
