Phenom upgrades and after market parts Opinions?
Posted 07 April 2011 - 07:01 AM
Basically, I want to make my Phenom pretty nice because I have a feeling I'm going to have it for quite a while. Now before I get flamed with "omg noob those don't do anything!" Well, that's why i am asking. I've seen youtube videos of the MRT Bolt where by just replacing the bolt, because it was lighter and more efficient, their FPS went up 30fps and he had to cut off some air to it. And I've heard from a personal friend that after market bolts increased his accuracy. So obviously there's at least a little truth to some of these. But that's why I'm asking you guys, to see what you think and check out any after market recommendations.

the MRT bolt allows a maximum amount of air to pass through in the shortest time, this actually makes the marker more crisp. although due to the lower mass it helps keep the forward pull down. so in theory your accuracy would increase. although in the Phenom there isnt much to start with.
As for accuracy, thats all about consistency, if the bolt design makes for a more consistent shot, you will improve shot to shot accuracy.
(outside of just buying better paint of course)
as for the cyclone mods, not to knowledgeable with em.
hope this kinda sorta helps

I have the Bad Karma Techt Delrin Bolt installed and i love it. The last game I played, I didn't have the best paint, I still chopped but it's due to the cold. I did notice an increase in accuracy and definitely a decrease in sound.

Squishy paddles are a good choice, as is the vortex mod (in the case of the old ones), because the soft paddles prevent it from blending, and the vortex mod replaces the plastic ratchet with a metal one that won't snap.
I don't know if the Phenom still uses the plastic ratchet, or if it has softer, rounder paddles. I believe it has improved paddles.
I wouldn't recommend the QEPH or Lightening Rod, nor any bolt or other upgrades (unless you were able to mod a level 10 )

The difference between the MRT and the Bad Karma bolt is that the bad karma is Delrin and aluminum instead of just aluminum, making the bolt a little lighter and improving the efficiency a tad. A new bolt is a improvement over the standard bolt due to the rubber tip that is a little gentler on paint than the standard bolt, as well as the weight difference to improve the efficiency.
Since the bolt is lighter than the stock bolt, they include a metal cyclone nipple with a slightly larger hole, since the bolt was so much lighter there wasn't enough air getting to the cyclone to cycle it.
There is also a new board out for the Phenom, but I haven't tried it nor will I since the standard board is enough for me.
You can also get the Double trigger as well, made by New Designz or Killjoy... but Now Techt has came out with a Fang trigger as well.
Hope this helps.
