i don't think it is to help sensi, since a ball falls straight down. and even if it rolls off the sensor the gun will still fire because it felt the ball before it rolled back towards the bolt.
i figured this out by putting my gun in test mode, and trying to simulate a ball being present with my finger. it doesn't register a solid push... it needs to be a quick tap and it doesn't even have to be hard, like a tap with your finger nail if you remove the barrel.
so yah, the sensi doesn't feel teh ball while it is resting on the sensor, only when it first touches it.
but i TOTALLY agree about teh partial feed of teh second ball when teh first rolls back. when i used to get chops i could even be shooting hella slow.... and when i switched to teh A4 bolt i now have had 0 chops at all, and sensi is working great (as i suspect it has been teh whole time...)
