itll probably blow out open faced bolts or restrict airflow on the venturi ones causing a drop in velocity. there really isnt any need given the shockers already low bolt force. shouldnt be getting breaks to warrant a foamie tip if tuned correctly.

i believe they were used by SP sponsored teams "back in the day". I think it was to help with roll back more then anything. Just curious if anyone else out there is still using the mod

yeah also the only bolts lol. theres a thread somewhere debunking the flat face roll back claims. i honestly run both flat faced pooty and other open/shallow faced bolts and didnt notice any gains in regards to mitigated clipping or breaking issues.

the pooty bolts are designed for minimal roll back compared to the stock bolts and SP HE.

roll back to keep a straighter ball stack for better eye readings and to reduce clipping. somebody debunked this and in actually it caused a greater chance of clipping once the bolt moves forward theres actually more room for the next ball to fall behind the first one. search it, its here somewhere lol.

why do you use pooty bolts if this is true?

Here's the link to that debunking. Pooty bolts are more hype than upgrade as far as I'm concerned.

to be honest, having used both i dont get anymore breaking or clipping issues and any differences in those regards between the two (open vs. flat face) have been negligible. i like that the pooty v2 doesnt have qev's and has a smoother shot profile in my experience. i run my pooty v2's at 10ms @ 140psi w/ ul internals shooting 295fps+- and eigens at 8-9ms @ 130psi w/ ul internals @ high 290'sfps. the eigens i run have noticeably more thwack in shot profile. having said that, the pooty is essentially a $60 sprung he bolt with flat face & 012 oring at the tip thats pink lol.

variety is the spice of life

oh i also have a v1 pooty with qev's... but thats a can of worms lol

Gotta agree with you there. We all love some variety, and to be honest... We should all feel like we can use whatever we want without people shoving their "axe is best" mentality down our throats.

Same mentality can be applied to Eigenbolts for shockers...so... Do whatever you like.

That's one of the best things about paintball
