Light, Light and Light....
Massive input and output ports...
Small custom o-rings are broken easily and very difficult to replace.
Now that I've finally gotten time to get out to a field and give the Second Generation of the Lite Stick a proper test, and yes it survived. The bolt did perform as it was intended and lower my FPS by 15 and improved consistancy not only in velocity but also in shot paterns going from roughly an 10" circle to a solid 8" with fewer strays. To further test he flow and design of I used smaller bore paint (Diablo Crusifix which measured less than .683) even with smaller paint in a larger bore the shots stayed in a very good pattern. I'd also like to note that there were no brakes, chops or other issues with shots. As far a the wieght and increase of speed, I did feel a slight improvement in ROF and more of an improvement in the cycle being much smoother and with considerably less kick. The only negative over the Second Generation are the O-Rings, they can only be obtained by Shooter and 3Ds which has shut down and you do wair them pretty fast depending on use, gear and care.
Ok Pros and Conc time...
Weight; Lightest bolt on the market,
Ports; Largest input and out ports on the market,
Seal was perfect.
O-Rings are alittle weaker than most and are only available through 3Ds...
Well after final tests I was impressed with the improvements esspiacly when I started using small bore stuff and shot consistancy stayed up there without having to crank up the air. I'm giving it a 9 becuase of the O-Rings are not as good as other bolts out there and can't be bought at any store...
9 out of 10

not to knock your review or anything, I would've given it the same rating if mine broke, but 3ds is currently changing the tail of the litestik and have stopped production of all of their products until the problem with this bolt is fixed. Once they get this issue sorted out this bolt will definately be one the best you can buy.
O, try and understand this, I DON"T GIVE A @#$%! I review what's been given to me, hey nice you're giving me a new one 3 months after the original broke that I order 2 months before that. He screwed up business sucks but itd the price you have to pay. I have the new bolt and haven't had time to do any kind of tests. So shut it....
doesn't matter now, 3DS is now out of business cause of people with horrible attitudes like yours... you should give a guy who is now $6,000 in debt some credit for having the b-lls to create is own business... you should be thanking him, not saying how bad his business is

The guy screwed up majorly, did I say his business was? NO! I said he made a defective product and is now paying for it. LIfe's tough if he was good and the product was good the first time then we wouldn't have this issue. Grow up...
P.S. I should be getting to a field for a proper retest this weekend...1//1/05
