6 months
Products Used:
stock bolt
Marker Setup: ion, q lock, unimount 2 on off, 14 inch all american, ricochet apache, 68/4500 pure energy, 360 QEV, firebolt
Strengths: Light=no kick
Very efficient
Higher cycle speeds
Lower operating pressure
Weaknesses: one tail o-ring, its not as efficent as the L6, but still very good
Review: so, i got the bolt along with a 360 qev from my pro shop. Installed the qev, lubed the bolt, and reassembled it. I set my dwell, and dry fired some with it. I found that for some reason it changes the sound of ur ion very slightly, but that doesnt matter. On my first day of play with it, i found i set my dwell too low, so i had bad consistancy. I turned it to 14, and got decent consistancy (i havent lubed my reg every since i had my ion, i need a 9/16 deep well socket), about +7/-7. Anyway, i had almost no kick to my ion, allowing me to fire fast and accurate ropes. Also, the bolt combined with the QEV and my dwell setting allow me to get about 1500 shots out of my 68/4500 tank.
Conclusion: I recommend it along with a QEV, they both increase efficiency, cycle rate, and lower operating pressure. It is nice that it nearly eliminates kick too.
10 out of 10
