ETek 3 Upgrades...

Ok, so two things... first off i have yet to see a zick2 kit or any kits like it. Any suggestions for a decent rammer kit that will reduce sound signature and reduce recoil/vibrations?
Second i was wondering about bolts....
i have seen 3 that seem ok but i want some input . The ones i have seen are the Hush bolt, Kush bolt, and cure 3+. What are some diffrences in these?
Thank for the help!

There really isn't another zick kit competitor. The Zick2 is your best bet, especially since it made by the Eclipse themselves. In all honestly save your money it won't make that huge of a difference but if you've got $40 to spare and can find some for sale right now then go for it. I noticed a slight change in my Etek3 when I had the Zick 2 upgrade.

Hush bolt: softer sound signature, again not a huge difference, but takes away that 'crack' sound signature, venturi face, increased FPS, lower HPR pressure, less breech wear with sealing orings

Kush bolt: most gentle on paint to shoot the most brittle pain, increased FPS (more than Hush), lower HPR pressure, less breech wear with sealing orings

Cure3+: designed to be gentler on pain, I had one in my Etek3 and it shot great, never chopped a ball, designed by Eclipse so you know it shouldn't have problems

I think the pooty cure 4 is your best spot for best of all worlds bolt. It's got a soft rubber face for brittle paint and all of the same goals as the kush, but it's a PE product at it's base, which always seem more reliable.

Having owned this, it is NOT very gentle on paint over the Hush. It's got a hard rubber tip like the Axe or the Mini (It's actually exactly the same piece of rubber).

As it's been stated, the Pooty C4 is your best bet.

I was basing it off advertisement honestly. I had a friend who shot ultra evil with it at Galveston without problems.

I've shot Ultra Evil with a Cure 1 without problems. Honestly, from the pod of 5 star I put through the Etek with the Kush bolt I broke 3 balls from clipping (Bad detents) but the bit of work that PE did with the notch in the bolt helped quite a bit. Just that little bit to keep them from being killed.

Well I've had good results with the Hush and Cure3+. I never used the Kush and was speaking from what I heard and seen.

I would recommend a Cure3+ over a Cure4 though. The 4 is a tad louder lol.
