Which Bolt?

I have an Evolution Delrin Supercharger Venturi Bolt & an Eclipse DART delrin full-face bolt.
When I first looked at bolts the general concensus of opinion was that the venturi was better.
With the advent of the DART (and other new style full-face bolts), all of a sudden this seems to have changed.

i think it's mainly because most guns now have gone low pressure and works better with an open face...

low pressure has not alot to do with it. Its the fact that venturi bolts restrict air flow and absorb some of the force that would act on the ball before it gets there. They are more efficient, thats all. The dart bolt helps that efficiency with the floating o rings. And the face of the bolt is easy on paint. =)
