Once again you are missing the point.

Think about what happens when you pull the trigger on a fully mechanical gun, and a sear tripper for that matter. Before your gun even shoots, the gun is being pushed forward by the bolt moving forward. This is exagerated even more when the bolt strikes the valve. All of this occurs before the shot. Then the ball is fired, but your gun isn't pointed where you gun was originally pointed, it is slightly down.

Then the valve is fully depressed, and the air forces the bolt backwards. This makes the gun pitch up.

Since almost all pro's use electropneumatic guns, they have superior accuracy because of lower recoil. That is why when they hit people, they hit them 3 times in the same spot...

You guys are thinking of recoil in the wrong way.

If you still don't get it, it means you have never shot a high end gun.

BTW, I believe bragging rights are the only thing that separates spyders and timmy's...but I could be wrong on that.

Ok well if they shoot the same speed, why should someone pay so much more for an e-bolt? 

When you fire the standard 98C the gun shakes all over the place from the mass of the hammer (rear bolt) slamming back and forth. The E-bolt replaces that heavy hammer with an electronically controlled penumatic hammer that has only about 1/4 of the moving mass of the stock hammer (plus, as with any electronic, the trigger pull is light as a feather. You can play the trigger like an Angel.

The bad part, besides the cost, is that Tippmann tells me that the E-Bolt is discontinued so the only thing available is the E-Grip, which is now available only on the A-5 and the Custom Pro. They also told me that they will have an e-grip for the 98C eventually. I think it a mistake to discontinue the E-Bolt and have said so to Tippmann. If you want the E-Bolt, I have been able to find them, nib, on the web and even on Ebay for about $200 to $225 (one sold on Ebay for $110). I find it easier to shoot to the same point of aim with the reduced movement of the gun when using the E-bolt.

Again, even though it has cost near $300, I think it a mistake to discontinue the the E-Bolt conversion.
