Personal experience? Have you used the techt bolt, or are you just assuming it is not worth adding to the marker?
It is a low end, and putting any "upgrade" in them are not cost effective.
The bolt costs $70, with $40 more, you can get an autococker, which is better than what that bolt could ever do.
It has been a long time since I shot my old E Orracle (long enough that I remember it being considered a "high end"), but I personally think the E1 smokes it. Timing that thing as a pain, where with the E1 I simply need to keep it lubed properly. The optical board and BS trigger slowed me down, unless it was bouncing, and I find the E1 shoots smoother (bit smoother than my angel, which is smoother than my cocker ever was). What you need to remember is some of us do not buy into the low end, high end thing. If you have experience with the Techt bolt, please feel free to follow up your opinion as only listening to those who validate my choice is not the best policy. If however you have not, your opinion has no place in this discussion and will be simply ignored as it would be an uninformed guess. (As a side note, if you simply came into the thread and said "I shot two of them and didn't think they were worth upgrading", the flack you are getting for being a "hater" would have been avoided. Stating a negative opinion always come across better with justification.... though, the best policy of course is to not care what random people on an internet forum think about you).
Anyway, thank you all for your opinions and advice about the Techt bolt. I had a chance to see one of those Techt "juiced" E1 markers in action and it pretty much sold me. It was almost as quiet as my matrix, and was so smooth that the guy using it could run it with a remote line and no stock without any noticeable barrel rise. Stock the thing doesn't feel like it has much kick to me, so if it drops it at all this will be a great little shooter. The thing is ridiculously small compared to anything else I have shot and should serve me well next season.
