I have not, but I don't see how it could possibly be much of an upgrade. I shy away from anything Venturi. There were Venturi autococker bolts, and inserts. They had the usual marketing junk attached to them about accuracy, being soft on paint, etc.

Practically speaking, soft tips and Venturi style things don't do as much (if anything) as they advertise. Actually, restricting airflow like that (as opposed to the open face bolt that's stock) would slightly diminish air efficiency. You won't experience any less breaks from having a soft tip, and most people don't notice a real big improvement from things like pillow bolts.

My advice? Save your money. Besides, I think FEP is going to release their new bolt engine for the next gen Quest as a drop in replacement for the current engine. I think it's compatible. So, instead of getting a new bolt now, just wait. It'll most likely be a bigger improvement.
Gerber, Surefire, TOPS, and Cold Steel all suck the big one. Buy quality products, not junk. :-)

The RSF bolt is a great alternative if you need a bolt and can't get another one, but there are no performance gains compared to the stock or goldmember bolts.

To make any difference, you need to change the bolt pin, which is why people "tape mod" their bolt pins. The new 4B bolt engine will with 3 parts and will be MUCH better then the stock set up.

Check out FEPs facebook page. We post new info there all the time along with teasers :D

It does quiet the sound signature of the gun quite nicely. That is one noticable difference.

I have the RSF bolt and a tape mod'd pin and and I can shoot about a case per fill. probably more due to the tape mod than the bolt, but yea.
Yes, I'm on the nation too. Cant we all just get along?

RSF Bolt makes it really quiet, soft tip so paintballs that are getting smaller can still be used. Looks dope too lol.
