Vanquish efficiency and bolt questions

I just purchased a vanquish 1.5 and I'm getting both updated bolts as well as a boss bolt.

From my understanding after doing some research the silver will give you the best efficiency and the boss/red 1.5 are comparable with shot smoothness. Does that sound about right?

Also I'm wondering what kind of efficiency numbers you guys are seeing and with what bolt. I've got a ninja 70/4500 and I'm curious as to what efficiency numbers I should be expecting.

Thanks!

There is no difference in efficency between red and silver bolt. The silver cycles faster/kicks more. The red cycles more slowly/kicks less. Silver = high speed. Red = low speed. Only difference.

If the only difference is that one moves faster and kicks more, what's the point of the different bolts? I can't think of any reason you would want your marker to kick more unless there was some other gain to be had (such as efficiency increase). SO what's the point of the silver bolt then?

It cycles faster. For players in leagues that allow higher rates of fire than 12.5 bps (CXBL, APL?) or for players who may use uncapped semi. There are scenarios where players may want their marker to cycle faster than it can with the red bolt.

Other players may prefer to shoot a marker with more "feedback" and may not want a super super smooth marker.

Great of Empire to provide parts to its customers and make sure that they covered all bases. Free of charge to boot!

Correct, The red bolt cycles about 14bps max. (Cycle speeds vary from marker to marker). The silver bolt can cycle faster.

Ah, that makes more sense. I usually play un-capped semi, and I don't think I can pull faster than 14, so I haven't run into any issues.
