I wanted to see if it would increase airflow, therefor an increase of fps.

I know people have been getting a drop in fps with the new bolt, I wasn't sure if the airflow out of the tip was the cause

If noone else does it, I'll get some air on Thursday and test it.

I got my bolt in today.

I put Vinton orings on the Rammer and have a poly on the shut off. Seems to have a lot of drag but it shot well. We will see what happens at practice this weekend

Ok so Put my new bolt in yesterday and put about half a case through. It raised my fps by about 20 fps. Once I turned that down it most definatley has less kick and a quieter sound signature. Im impressed overall. Will have to put a few thousand more shots to be sure but I think this will be awesome.

It definatley raised mine and my buddies FPS by about 20 fps.

I had the same results as you break it in your fps might go up again slightly like mine did

I had about a 30 fps drop. Not sure if it was because of the new orings or now but, I'm going to let it break it in a little and then report

So my vitons on my rammer were creating a ton of drag. I swapped them for some Poly orings and everything is good now. Drag is a lot less and I gained a good 15 fps.

I'd like to also know about this. I'm on the edge of buying the new bolt but I'm wondering if it would be better to wait until they've come out with the spring mod. Do we know yet that the spring will definitely be compatible with this bolt or if BLAST will come out with a completely new one??

I wouldn't wait. As it was stated earlier, they tried this new bolt with a spring and found no performance gain, so they scrapped the idea for this iteration.

I agree, IMO they were playing around with two remedies: this new bolt or a sprung bolt.

The new bolt and ram is a good upgrade. I definitely feel the difference in the quality of the shot. I wouldn't wait.

I played with my soft shot bolt today for the first time and noticed some serious shoot down as well as FSDO. I do not have the 5.20 board update yet, but was wondering if there is any way to fix this issue.

The board update will do nothing to resolve this issue and a dwell of 13 is insanely high. You have too much friction in your engine ... without being able to see it it will be impossible for any of us to tell you what the issue is.
I would suspect ether it needs more lubrication on the sail and shutoff o-rings, or the shutoff is not seated properly in the front of the can within that 2x20. I would also check to make sure the flapper o-ring is correctly installed. if all of those check out, then I would check/change the 010 O-ring in the back of the shutoff and replace it with ether a Urethane 010 or the 1.9x5.8 mm D70.

Houston we have a problem..
Blast is getting a call tomorrow. Gun played fine, then the bolt stuck forward. Removed the engine and found this. Blast will take care of it, but it looks like a tolerance issue with the oring grove.
