Bit of background: For a few weeks or so I've been lurking and trying to find answers here and on YouTube and I have been able to narrow down on my options but within those options I have a few questions and hopefully somebody can answer them.
All of this comes from my decision to order a Elite Alpha Trooper CS-6, I am relatively interested in the Blaster Parts Tactical Range kit for the EAT and the Hobby Mods kit for the EAT as well. Unfortunately I do not know much about the Hobby Mods kit since it is down for the holidays but I probably will pick it up since it seems relatively solid based on YouTube videos.
Now comes my main question which is in regards to the priming rod or whatever it maybe called. I watched a video by Lord Draconical which made the kit seem fairly decent but then I watched a video from Foam Data Services which seemed a bit more in depth. In the video by Foam Data Services he mentioned how the bar did not fit very well and would basically wear down the bolt sled due to the angle and it rubbing against the interior of the blaster shell. In his comments he said that he would not recommend this kit due to those reasons and if they are true I do not want it.
I do understand that the bar should support most springs and I have no intention of pushing any limits but in a video by Coop772 in which he compares the EAT to the Retaliator he mentions some flex to the priming bar can be felt and quite frankly I don't want any of that.
So if anybody that has the kit can give me some in depth response that would be greatly appreciated, I just got into this after a friend of mine told me she wanted to gather some of our old friends to shoot each other with foam darts.
I should mention if I get both kits I intend to use the following:
Blaster Parts Priming bar, Plunger guide (The cylindrical tube)
Hobby Mods Catch/Catch Spring, Plunger Spring/ Spring guide
