Review: I was a bit skeptical about the Redz bolt, what with it coming onto the already competitive ion bolt market so late, but I decided to give it a try. Taking it out of the box my first impression was how light it was and the wonderful annodizing job done, all what I would expect from any aftermarket ion bolt. The differences with the Redz bolt was the double o-rings on back and the milling job done to avoid any 90* angle

After taking my new bolt to the fields for a day I realized what a work of art Redz had created. I lowered my dwell down to 7 with my only other internal upgrade being a qev. I got over 1400 shots to a 3700 psi fill, roughly 100-200 more shots than my friend's firebolt.

I examined my bolt after two cases of paint and found not even the slightest of damage or wear to the annodizing. The extra o-ring on the back gives this bolt a better clearence resulting in less wear on the annodizing than the firebolt.
Conclusion: Redz has put fourth an excellent bolt for the ion that directly competes with any other after market ion bolt. I personally prefer this bolt over any other and would recommend it to anyone. The only reason I give this bolt a 9 and not a 10 is because I believe there is still room for someone to create a completely unique ion bolt that will be unchallenged by any other. For now Redz has come close.
Rating:
9 out of 10
