I cannot tell you how many pods I shot, next time I go back I will detail my findings. I know other companies have bolts on the market but I know that they are junk from what I heard from the techs. at my fields shop when I asked about them. So if you can get your hands on one from your local field try it and post your findings.
The bolt that you were "testing" was the latest incarnation of our Etha AM (All Metal) Bolt. In essence this is an Etha bolt without a rubber tip as it is all one assembly. The dimensions of the from face of internal insert now closely resembles Geo3 bolt face geometry.
This bolt is intended to appeal to fields using Ethas as their rental markers; less wear and tear and consequently reduced downtime = happy field owners
