I got mine Thursday. Right when I aired it, it went full auto. I lubed the rings and it was smooth. I then switched to the pooty orings and the stock like drag was gone. I haven't shot more than a pack yet. But I noticed it was quiet and less kick. Plus had to drop the fps just a bit. Shooting 280 in rain. Apx agro.

Just got my bolt, did not have the full auto that some other people have. It actually fit looser on the bolt guide than the stock bolt. No leaks or anything using the green orings that came with the bolt. Shot some crappy Valken field paint and it did seem more consistent than the stock bolt from the chrony measurements I was taking. I'll post a video when the weather isnt so bad (dark, cold with snow) outside. I'll use better paint so I can really compare and not leave the deviation of crappy paint to affect the velocity.

Aftermarket bolts in basically any guns imo are a complete waste of money. Did exalt make the Geo2? No. So how do they know what the gun can use and cant use. Anything and everything about aftermarket bolts are sketchy. They obviously anodize the metal bolt body a hard black which takes off a lot of material in the anno process. That much material being lost/put back on and really mess with the gun's performance. Gun manufactures such as Planet Eclipse, have extremely in depth quality control standards to ensure their products are as reliable as they can possibly be. Also take notice how Planet does not anno their bolts, because you cannot control how much metal is being taken off, however with purely cutting metal you can.

All in all, stay away from aftermarket bolts. They almost never live up to the hype and has a much greater chance of causing issues opposed to "making my gun shoot so effing awesome bro".

EDIT: After reading a few posts in this thread about people having full auto issues when the gun is being aired up, and other issues, is pure evidence of what I was talking about.

I agree that most aftermarket bolts are gimmicks, but I think this one is just to get Geo2 user a bolt with a soft face like the one that the Geo 3 comes with.

You should check your facts about Geo bolts and the anodizing process though. No metal is lost in the anodizing process unless a previous ano is being stripped. Additionally, the type II anodizing that most paintball companies use will not made much of a thickness at all. And not only are the Geo bolt anodized, but they are type III hard anodized to prevent wear. Type III anodizing does add a thickness to aluminum, but is VERY hard. This bolt is probably type II and the anodizing is bound to wear off eventually.

So if I add upgrades to say, my car, all those aftermarket parts manufacturers are actually making my car worse?

Obviously companies that make upgraded bolts would start with the factory dimensions of the stock bolt and then make improvements on things like air flow, weight, etc. Obviously these bolts were tested extensively before going to market. If PE thought these bolts would harm the gun they would say so, like they did for the TechT Etha bolt. Exalt and PE do have a relationship with each other (ie. PE branded, Exalt tank covers, barrel maids, etc).

As pointed out above, PE does anodize their bolts, aluminum is just as vulnerable to corrosion as any metal if untreated.

Would just like to point out that Exalt did not consult us in any way over their Launch bolt. the first we heard of it was when it was posted in the news forum here on PBNation. We didn't give them any specs or dimensions, they worked on this entirely off their own back.

I would be interested to see one of these bolts in person.

For the guys that are having an issue with the full auto effect, does it do it when you fire the gun, or when you gas it up?

Got mine today and it haves the same anno flaws.
I wonder if this affects performance or anything at all.

This is my personal review of this bolt.

DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF ****.

I played an indoor tournament today and after I put about 1000 shots with the bolt it started the "Full Auto" effect EVERY time I aired up my Geo..

The tip of the bolt gets lodged all wrong and starts to bend forward so your gun will be ****ed up, the bolt doesnt go on the bolt guide very securely on the guide either. It was a loose fit for me. Its stupid that you pay $50 for a piece of **** bolt and you can't get a refund do they stick you there. ONE good thing about this bolt is that it does give you better readings at the chrono. It's definately a lot more consistent AND THAT WAS IT.

The only thing Exalt should make from now on and ever is cleats and barrel swabs.

Wow. That could be more dangerous than the old Geo 2 firing during degassing issue.

From what Ive seen on this thread the bolts that are loose seems to have the full auto effect.The ones that are not loose doesn't have that problem.

Also, there are some bolts with anno defects.

A new issue: "The tip of the bolt gets lodged all wrong and starts to bend forward"

I think I will uninstall my exalt bolt.
