I have 2 Spyder RT markers. I was unhappy with the anti chop bolt because it didn't have o-rings and used a lot of air, but the anti chop did work as it rarely chopped a ball. I purchased some delrin bolts from Alamo City Paintball. They were recommended by Spyder. The new bolts are great for saving air, as it uses about half of what it used to. The problem is it chops at least one ball per game. The balls curve like crazy, left, right, down, etc. Even after cleaning, they still curve, although not as bad. I used Diablo All Stars and US Army Elite paintballs, so I don't think it's the balls, although I had them a little over a month. I've spend more on upgrades than I did for the guns. I'm at a loss. Help!

If you change your bolt your chrono is gonna change. Have you chrono'd since you changed bolts? Shooting to fast can cause all the problems you just described.

The US Army paint is not considered high quality paint. Just FYI.

The guns were chronographed at 285fps by Spyder. I took the guns to the manufacturer. They changed the main springs, a valve, and one other part, and then chrono'd the guns. I sent them an email as well, but they have not responded yet, since it's a holiday weekend.

As blackcell said, wild paint curving is usually a sign of too high of fps. Remember all that air that was blowing by your bolt? It's now being shot out the front of the gun also.

Turn your marker down.

You should chrono EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. you play with your marker. Don't trust that since they did it that it has stayed there, because it most likely hasnt. There are many factors that can change your FPS. Turn it down and I promise you that it will get better!
