There are a few threads about it, including one from me. The short version is that it is only slightly better than stock. A Lurker or Boss bolt will yield better results. My Lurker bolt definitely kicks its butt, and Boss is right up there with Lurker, based on reviews, since I don't have one.

Personally the boss bolt is cheaper.. And more of an improvement.

The axe is pretty soft on paint.. No need for a rubber bumper

There are minimal gains over the stock bolt with the Exalt bolt. I'd take Boss or Lurker over it any day.

I'm fairly certain it's aluminum.

Yeah, it is made of aluminum. It really doesn't offer much performance over the stock bolt. I can't say I was disappointed in the performance because I wasn't expecting much. If I didn't have a Lurker bolt in my Axe and bought the Exalt bolt expecting results like they claim, then I would have been thoroughly disappointed.

with the launch bolt you can get some excellent efficentcy right? like 11 pods of a 3600 fill?

No, I don't think any bolt will get you 11 pods off of 3600...

The launch bolt offers very minimal improvement over stock. All that changed was the geometry of the soft tip. It weighs about the same as stock and offers no efficiency losses/gains as suggested above.

Tuning, polishing the poppet, and doing a little oring work to reduce friction will do far more for efficiency than going from the stock bolt to Exalt bolt or vice versa.....

My Axe with stock bolt and poppet gets 11 pods from a full 68 and it could probably even do better.

yes, i just bought another axe and i am actually going to try to tune it with the stock bolt then add the exalt bolt and probably a techt spring kit and see if there is a difference. I will probably write up a little something when this happens
