D.AR.T or Kush?

Okay so I have seen both in action yet cannot decide which is the better purchase. They both achieve the same results being the following. Better efficiency, lower LPR and HPR pressures, and a slightly lower decibal sound signature when fired.

That being said, price wise the Techt Kush bolt is superior being $50 cheaper than the Planet Eclipse D.A.R.T. Bolt Kit.

Another point to bring up is that Techt and other such aftermarket accessory companies made bolts before the manufactures had released their own aftermarket bolts and other such aftermarket accesdories. The question I ask is do the manufactures release their own make of aftermarket bolts and such just so that they can retain profit after the initial gun purchase? I would say yes.

They do not achieve the same LPR pressure.

The D.A.R.T. kit is superior is many ways. The feeling of the D.A.R.T. kit is so much nicer than the Kush or the Hush bolt.

Have had two in an Ego 11 and a CSL.

Hope this helps!

The performance improvements are not equal. The DART kit is better. It is a revised valve as well, not just a bolt with orings.

You should go with what ever bolt YOU think is better, otherwise you will always be second guessing YOUR purchase.



With that said, if you truly understood the technology involved you would believe anything other than dart is a complete waste of money.


But really it sounds like you already know what YOU want, so this whole thread is kinda useless.

DART without question. I would almost say my Ego is now as smooth if not smoother than my Luxe. Big call? Maybe, but it makes THAT much difference.

NO just ...no it's not.

But the DART works. But at the cost of the ANO in the breach being sanded off with some use. Any bolt with an O-ring is going to do this but the DART is one that actually dose what it claims.

Lol, it will not make it as smooth as a luxe, but it will significantly improve the gun's performance. Get the dart, they work great.

Read my post again. I said "I would almost say......."

It makes a BIG difference over standard. Shooting them side by side? well.....
