I would say Cure3+ or Cure4 if you shoot super brittle paint.

Cure3+ really or any of the techt´s (they are not bad and are pretty much a better version of the pooty mod....IMO cause I´ve had them both pootys and techs)
the cure 4 is really for tourny level paint, not worth it unless you got money to spare

With tournament paint being the most brittle paint out there...I would think that something built to shoot that would be able to handle most all types of paint.

I can't speak on any bolts outside Eclipse ones...but the cure4 is a very nice bolt if you are looking for an upgrade from a stock 06 bolt.

Words of truth.

The Cure4 is really good on brittle paint. I also really liked the Cure3+ from the SLS with the muffler put insert installed.

^Agreed^ The SLS Cure 3+ with the inserts is a very good bolt. Very easy on paint and my shots sound more like a puff then a loud snap.

Cure bolts are great. You should look at your settings though, I never had many chops with my '06.

All the bolts will do great....
But, unlike the others above me, i'm going to give data-backed info and not just tell you what i have and that i love it. Because in reality, they all work great.. .but if you truly want to find out what will give you the most benefits... Then here you go:

Kush because its soft on paint with the rubber tip. And provides the largest up in FPS, which allows you to turn down the HPR, thus making your gun more efficient.

Great video to watch...

This is completely wrong.

There's a major difference between simply being a rubber tip and being a soft rubber tip. The rubber tip on the Kush bolt is the same one that's on the Axe/Mini, which is a pretty hard rubber tip. There's no give in the tip (which is what helps when it smacks the ball).

Umm... no. It IS softer on paint. Argue with whatever reasoning you want, but i know what i'm talking about. The fact that you'd even argue the difference between hardness of rubber is silly. Anything rubber is softer than plastic. Its common sense. The rubber face also doubles as the front o-ring and provides less breach wear than a normal stock bolt.

Regardless, the main reason to buy a Kush is for the increased efficiency. The rubber tip helps and is an added plus.
