Dm12/13 Bwing bolt is it worth it?

Ive been shooting dye guns for years and in all that time I ive only had a bwing bolt in of my two guns, but what Im interest in is those that had one in there dm12 or 13 in your opinion is it worth dropping 130$ for one ?

i have a dm12 coming in the mail and its stock and i was debating the same thing. check out youtube, there's a handful of BW bolt reviews. summing up from all the research i did, the only noticeable difference is the gun will shoot a bit more consistently, and i guess the carbon sleeve looks cooler? im going to break my dm12 in and tune it to perfection as much as possible this season, and once i know the true performance capabilities of the dm12 i will decide if its worth it or not. im leaning towards no.

Less bolt stick, more consistent shoot, your chrono will read more consists like 288-287-288-290 that was my last 4 shots. With it being more consistent it also makes your gun efficient and if u lower your tank pressure it will also perform at low pressure. Lastly less to almost no recoil. Gun shoots amazing with it

I bought one for my former Damage DM12... my bolt was so well broken in the BW DM bolt was less smooth.

I kept the CF bolt can for looks and sold the bolt cheaply.

I imagine if you have a brand new DM12/13 then the BW bolt will probably be smoother out of the box.

imo its not worth it to buy one, but if the gun you are getting already has one, i would just keep it.

Its one of those upgrades do you want to spend the money and get the bolt or save it for something else but the gun already performs really well out of the box ive probably put 6 cases through mine and im get 10.5 pods out of mine, however with a more consistant fps that i could pick up that extra half pod in efficency

I noticed better efficiency with my bwing bolt but that may have been from the significantly lower lpr
