Benefits of Venturi Bolts?

Recently browsing Bacci's website and found some cupped face Venturi bolts, and was wondering if there is any actual benefits behind them or just some of those classic 90s hype gimmicks, with absolutely no testemony except that of some biased magazine article author.

I found a slight sound signature difference in a build. Only thing I changed was the bolt face (Bob Long Hydra).

They were beneficial for lining the pockets of the people who sold them. They did look cool but did not really offer any performance gains

Yeah, steer far, far away.

As noted, they look great, but will lighten your wallet, and line your breech with paint as they chop, chop, chop.

The stock bolt is just fine, and better than most.

None of them actually take advantage of the Venturi effect that they are named after. It's just a gimmick.

If you actually look up what the effect is you would see really quickly that the bolts are not designed at all to take advantage of it. Not to mention I'm not even possible you can in paintball because the pulse of air behind a Paintball is such a short duration

No point, and you will both (a) destroy what makes this particular venturi bolt desirable and (b) preserve all that makes venturi bolts in general undesirable.

I think he means you will cause wear on it, hurting the value, and it will have no effect on the performance. You will essentially get no benefit from "destroying" a piece of history.
