Does Anyone use L7's anymore?

I've got a DM9 on its way and I am just curious what has been going on with these bolts. I had a DM7 a few years back and remember seeing a lot of videos of DM's with techt bolts. I haven't seen much of anything with the newer markers lately though. Is there a reason?

Because the TechT DM/PM (not PMR/PR/PRR) bolt is vastly inferior to stock, and once people started realizing that they were paying money to downgrade their marker, they stopped.

Just break in your stock bolt. Spend your money on a board, trigger, nice aka 2 liter reg or some paint.

It basically turns it into a $1300 PMR. The TechT bolt completely alters the very way the DMm works, so that it no longer uses the LPR, becoming an unbalanced spool. The worst "upgrade" ever released for the DM/PM series IMO.

Thank you for further elaborating. I didn't quite understand before.

it's a mixed review on here. But from my own experience with them I liked it but only my PM7's. I had several and it made a difference with one installed & one with just the regular bolt and you can easily tell the difference. Does it claim to make it quiter & less kick.....YES in different PM7's over the years it has for me just not in DM's for some reason.

Worst upgrades to get on a dm... the hyper 3 reg is the best reg for this marker.. the stock board is more then enough, if he wants to upgrade, get a new trigger, and depending what year of dm it is, he should get atleast 1 extra eye pipe system with a nice oring kit.. and some good sleek lube.

I run a completely stock dm7 and to this day people ask to buy it cause it shoots. No need for upgrades, shoot +/-3 over chrono all day long. I run dwell 2 clicks hot, clean my HPR/LPR once a season and only lube my bolt before events. Just saying.
