Geo 3 Hard face bolt vs. soft face

Ive been using the hard face, is there any advantage to the soft one? Also, is it bad to leave the battery in the gun for extended periods of time? like..years.

Here are my current paintball activities:

Softer on brittle paint

And it'll kill the battery... Rare occasions I've seen the battery start to corrode and get all over inside the frame.

The soft tip bolt is for shooting ultra evil in the middle of winter. You're in california, so it's unnecessary. The soft rubber-tip is also known to loosen and swell overtime; It'll eventually cause bolt stick or shoot out of your marker (seen this happen twice).
Not worth the trouble.

The 'hard bolt' is fine as the geo3+ is soft enough on paint already, using the soft tip is just for some people's peace of mind. I'd recommend using the hard bolt.
