Yes, there is a difference in pressure to operate the movement of the bolt.
This should not necessery be a problem if you control the speed of the bolt.
The Luxe operates at 170-180 Psi, and is not nearly as hard on paint as the NT. AXE is at 160-200 depending on bolt.
Preassure also does not directly say anything about the force of the bolt. You need to knor the area which the force pushes on to know what fore is created with that pressure.
I do not know why the AXE broke paint. I have used it before with paint that break from around 70-100cm height and it did absolutely fine.
What I want to know is what kind of acceleration can a paintball take before it crack.
By testing this it will be easier to check in forehand if the NT will shoot it or just womit the paint all over.
There is not much to change on the NT without changing alot and this is something i don't want to doo because the feel of the NT when shooting is awesome. I don't want to mess that up. Maybe I will make a slightly heavier bolt. that should accelerate slower but maybe some more kick.
I don't want the bolt to feel slow like the LLuxe or DM so it will be tricky.

Im surprised the Axe blew through the paint as Pro teams like Vicious use Axes with fragile paint.
