I'd get creative if I where you fellas. Can any of you post a couple pics of the bolt in and outside the marker. I would like to have a look at the design
The problem is Dye hasn't really updated their technology much in the last 5-6 years. The decrease in the size of paintballs, as well as the slow motion camera studies done by Jack Wood of PE have show us all what's really going on in there(hence the cure bolts). I personally knew this ever since the halo first came out. Many companies are still behind in this respect. Why? Because unless you play with really brittle, or really cold paint it's not an issue, so they ignore it.
What I was going to do to my bolt back in the day was pop off the bolt tip oring....drill a few holes through the bolt tip oring channel and secure some type of hard foam gizmo into the center of the bolt. Nothing large....just enough to keep balls from rolling back. I never did get around to it though.
I should mention the rubber faced B-wing bolt may have this issue licked. I can't say for sure.
Maybe someone should write a letter to Exalt......they just came out with a geo bolt to solve this issue on older geos.....maybe they'd make one for Dm's if there is enough response.
