Not bad for a 48/45 tank.

No mention of pod size, but I was skimming the video, probably 140?
Test #1 - Stock Bolt = 4 pods + Virtue (velocity was 285 fps to start)
Test #2 - TectT L7 = 5 1/2 pods + Virtue (velocity jumped to 315 fps, had to be lowered, said to have less kick)
Test #3 - TechT L7 + QEV = 5 3/4 pods + Virtue (back up to 300 fps, had to be lowered)

If the QEV negates the anti-chop bolt, I think I would stick with the L7.

Now, any idea how other bolts compare to TechTs horribly overpriced stuff?

I agree with you conclusion though. Upgrading to the L6 is a big jump in efficiency. The QEV doesn't seem to do much beyond that. You might lose the anti-chop by upgrading to the L6. I think that partially comes from the bolt stem/bolt stop inner o-ring being a tight fit. The L6 might not have the same tightness there. Maybe PR can comment?

wait wait wait

L6 (dual tail oring)
L7 (no tail)

which was it?

L6 (dual tail o-rings) for sure. He specifically called attention to the fact that it is a no-longer-produced L6 and the L7 WILL NOT work correctly. Also showed installation.

Woops. I misheard. It is definitely the dual tail o-ring.

So, the next question is why? Is it just a matter of weight? Can we find any Vibe bolt that weighs less than stock and expect to get such efficiency gains?

Better flow. The air leaves the chamber more efficiently with less turbulence.

L6.

The results are quite a bit better, comparatively, that what HustlePaintball got. However, they were also using the stock barrel. As a recap, they got 1050 off a 68 with the stock marker. That bolt almost made up for 20ci of tank volume, pretty impressive.

Wonder if the bob long pillow bolt has twin orings on the tail?

Putting a second oring on wouldn't be very hard. It would just come down to finding the most efficient bolt to modify so the MCB crew can get cracking.

I nominate SSC to do the work.

Let's find some high-flow bolts.
