Review: I went out looking for a bolt for my Ion. I had my mind set on an L6 or L7. I went to my local shop (Boston Paintball) and talked to them. they don't stock TTech so I had a choice between the SP Firebolt and the Shocktech.

I asked the guy for his opinion. He said that both were good, but if he had an Ion and was choosing he would go with the bolt from the company that made the gun. Seems logical, so I got it.

Installation is a no brainer.

First thing I noticed when I fired it was that there was little to no kick, not there was a huge kick with the stock bolt but it is a little noticeable.

It doesn't affect the weight of your gun. If you have the firebolt in one hand and the stock in another, there is a difference in weight.

I can't say much about the air efficiency, because I didn't sit there and count balls i was firing. Put it this way, before I would play a game with my hopper and 2 pods, and I would have a little air left, not enough for a whole game but maybe a hopper worth. when I used the Firebolt I used 3 pods and a hopper and had enough air for 1/2-3/4 of another game.

I would say, in estimation that I went from 550 balls to a tank to about 650 to a tank. I am sure there are people that get much more and some that get less but this is just an estimate.

Conclusion: I highly reccomend the Firebolt. for $40 you can't go wrong.
