Violent Products and Techna Trigger have teamed up to bring you one of the best designed ION triggers on the market. The trigger is made of Acetron and incorporates many of the features that are unique to Techna Trigger designs (unique still even after two years of being copied by others). First is the ball bearing pivot. Like the Techna produced triggers, this one also uses dual specialized flanged bearings with extended inner rings. The bearing flanges ensure that no matter how many cycles, or how hard the use, the trigger body will NEVER "walk" off of the bearing to bind on the sides of the grip frame. The extended inner rings work to position the trigger body precisely within the frame so that at no point in its travel is the trigger permitted to rub the frame. Cycle after cycle, use after use, the bearings remain centered in the frame, and the trigger body centered in the bearings. This trigger incorporates a drop in and bolt in place, "digit" pivot pin. This pivot pin will allow you to install and remove the trigger without the fear of damaging the frame or the bearings through hammering. The pin simply pushes through frame and bearings with slight thumb pressure, and is then secured with a small button head screw. There are adjustments for over travel, switch take-up, and magnet tension, making it easy to dial in the trigger feel as well.
The Violent Products Ion Scythe Trigger is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Just bought the VP scythe trigger and NOTHING compares to this trigger. I can honestly say that this thing is insane! $38 shipped aint too bad especially for the product you get. (If you were to buy a CP trigger online it would cost you $32 plus shipping).
The bearing design is awesome, you dont run the risk of ruining your frame or trigger pin because you don't have to hammer it out anymore. The bearing is connected by two screws at each end. Plus there's no side-to-side movement on this bad boy.
The shape is amazing. Because normally, my middle finger is a tad slower than the index, this trigger helps me rip faster with it's design. I can walk the trigger with no sweat with this trigger.
Although I havent tried the CP for the Ion, I've tried it on other guns and I would chose the VP scythe over the CP any day of the week, and imo the NDZ roller trigger doesn't compare to this trigger. The NDZ uses a screw to hit the switch on the board, and if you don't use loctite on the screw to hold it in place it, it loosens as you play, sometimes to the point where you can't shoot anymore w/o adjusting that screw again.
The only bad part is that because the trigger isnt aluminum it just doesn't flow well with my marker since most of the parts on it are polished black.
Unless you're a cosmetic freak, go with the scythe although it only comes in black, and has that dull, dust look to it, the shape is sick, plus it makes your marker rip. It's insane. Anyway, this trigger is definitely the best trigger out for the ion imo. I recommend it to everyone with an ion.

Shape, bearings, short trigger pull
Shape ( personal taste )
My friend from the store had a new toy : This trigger was on his Ion for a while, and I was quite impressed.
The color perfectly matches the powder coated grip frame, the shape is original and well designed, and the trigger pull can be made extremely light in a matter of minutes. Plus it looks hella nice.
Shape : If you aren't quite used to something to this it might take awhile, but in reality it isn't much different to a regular trigger, you'll just be pulling on a different shape. Another greta feature about design is that the trigger rounds off around the edges, which makes it super comfortable.
Pull : The bearings in this trigger are extremely smooth, and are the right size to eliminate side to side slop. Also, with a few adjustments you can have your Ion touch sensitive. ( Be prepared to clean out barrel condoms. )
EDIT : I was so impressed I bought myself one. Wow. All I can say is this trigger is insane. Before putting it in I pushed the pin thru the bearings and tapped it to watch them move, absolutely flawless pull. The bearings are practically perpetual motion machines. After installing it, without any adjusting what so ever, I began tapping. Oh, how I tapped. I ripped with out much effort, and then ripped some more.
Adjusting it down to my preferences, I had it clicking like a room full of geniuses.
This trigger is glorious. A masterpiece. A perfect ten.
I'm not sure about the price, but from what I've seen this product is gold. I award it my first ten. The shape would be the only weakness, and if you were buying it you'd have to be aware of shape anyway. Personally I think the shape is sick.
EDIT : If Jesus had an Ion, this would be his trigger. For serious.

I like the design
I really liked this trigger. The disign makes it easy to walk and it is very light. I was able to use it with no magenet and I had no bounce. It is also very easy to adjust, in about five minutes I was able to got from long, short, w/ magenet, w/o magenets, to find out what best suited me. Also, the included pin makes it so easy to remove with out scratching your frame.
The only weakness what that it was pretty damb expensive for a trigger.

Easy to walk
There is none
Recently bought this off of compulsive paintball for 37.50 and some other stuff so i got free shipping. This trigger is purely amazing. If you were going to only get one upgrade for your gun it would definately have to be this trigger. It just feels great. Its hard to explain unless you have actually tested this trigger but it works so good. It upped my rate of fire by atleast 7-8 shots simply because i was using the wrong trigger anyway.
BUY THIS NOW. if you plan on only getting one upgrade like a lot of people do MAKE THIS THE ONE!

So I bought a CP trigger, thought I got a crappy messed up one. Ordered another one. No problem, but it was poor quality all around. Sold that thing after seeing 2 days of play with it. Got myself a VP SCythe, best decision I have ever made for a trigger. Price isnt the greatest, but hey, that's what you pay for such a nice trigger. It's better than the price you pay for Technas on timmys and stuff.
-The shape is designed to fit your trigger finger
-Absolutely no side to side play, ever, unlike the CP
-No crappy spacers and pin like the CP, just a simple 2 piece easy-to-install pin.
-Adjustable magnets. 1 magnet, 2 magnets, or just none.
-Little bounce. Which is good, refs these days are looking for the kind of bounce that makes your gun keep shooting after you stop pulling
-Absolutely no trigger stick
-Easy to rip on, no matter how slow you are.
-I love scythe designs!
-Lack of colors. Not a big deal, it still looks good on guns. Just get it annoed for real cheap from precisionpb.com or paint it yourself
-Only available in dust. Would be cool if it was polished instead, but nothing performance affecting.
-Price is $42 priority 2-3 day shipped, If I can remember. Nothing bad. Every penny is worth it. Trust me.
I'd suggest anyone looking for an awesome trigger to get it ASAP. It's great, light, fast, smooth. Every person's dream trigger, unless if you hate the scythe design.
The scythe trigger for the ion is simply one of the few products for the ion that are just absolutely amazing.
First off, before I even get to the trigger, the new trigger screw which replaces the stock pin, is an absolute must... It takes the requirement of a center punch and a hammer, and throws them right out the window. This little pin alone, you can buy elsewhere for 9.99 + shipping. So keeping that in mind, purchasing the trigger for 37.50 shipped, and taking into account the value of the 'free' trigger pin it comes with, the trigger is now 27.50... Not too bad for the best trigger on the market.
Now, originally I was one of the doubters of the peculiar shape of this trigger, however after installation, I was absolutely amazed at how well this trigger works ergonomically. It simply feels right, this is due to the extended length of ones middle finger, so it only makes sense to have the middle finger out a little bit more. This trigger shape also compliments and rewards proper hand posture.
The bearings included with this gun virtually eliminate any side to side play while making this trigger one of the smoothest triggers at the field. It comes with magnets as well which you can install if you like a little more resistance down there. Personally I don't like them, and the trigger doesn't bounce without them, so I see no need for them. Anyways, it's good to have them there just in case.
Overall, this is probably one of the best upgrades I've put on my marker. There's nothing else to say, except for... Go Buy It!
I give this trigger my first 10 / 10... It's that good.
Comes with a screw instead of a trigger pin so you dont have to hammer on your gun. easy to sweet spot two magnets so you can take one out of leave them in so you get the feel you want. best trigger fr the ion i have felt so far.

shape appeals to me
None at all, if you think there are weaknesses, u have problems.
This trigger is awseome as hell. It fits in perfect and there is absolutely no slop. Its super easy to walk, and as i said in strengths, it appeals to me becasue of the shape. My fingers arent coorintaed, and the shape of this trigger makes me walk way better than normal. I like this trigger mostly because of the shape, it just looks mean. Its also liter than the roller and stock. Ive even shot myself in the foot on accident because its so smooth and easy LOL.
BUY IT!!! its well worth the 47 bux. You wont be disappointed guaranteed.

You couldnt get a better trigger. Its an amazing trigger that keeps up with me and keeps a rythm. Its a great trigger to match a great gun. The trigger has a great design that honestly before i saw it thought...how am i gunna shoot with that ?!?! I gave it a try and fell in love with it. This is really the best trigger you could ever want. It also helps with being able to adjust it to your liking, and 2 magnets that help do that.
If you want a trigger for the ION this is the trigger you want.
