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.

This trigger is very nice and light
The magnets And maybe price
I see the magnets as a weakness because I don't use them anyway, I think that they are too strong so I just use the trigger without them and it is great one of the best triggers I have ever shot. it is close to the CP and NDZ but it beats them by a little becasue of the shape and pull, but it is less adjustable it has 3 adjustment the two stock ones and a crappy magnet adjustment that requires you to take apart the body to get to it.
Over all I would buy this product, I just wish the magents were less strong and more easily adjustable.

This trigger is the best! I had to mod my blackheart board by moving the speaker from the front to the top, but that was not a problem. This trigger is mush easier to walk then the CP trigger also much lighter. I used no magnets in it and gave it a lot of forward slop that helped the speed in walking. I did have it to close at first and it was not as fast.
For the Ion this is the best trigger on the market !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ok first of all im kinda new to paintball and adding modded parts to my marker, so that is my excuse for what i am about to tell you. i live in England and got my vp trigger imported from the states, imagine my excitement when it came through the post 3 long weeks later. it was late at night about 1a.m when i got in from work and found it on the table, so i thought how hard can it be, it should take 5 minutes......WRONG!!!!! it took about 20 minutes to get the old pin out, and even then not all the way out. i removed the stock trigger and put the new one in. by the way i did not read the instructions so i did not no what the strange looking thing with the screw in the end was. i do now it was the smaller replacement locking pin stupid stupid me. anyway after about an hours worth of pis*ing about trying to get the old pin to go back in i resorted to violence, using a very light hammer i tried to persuad the pin to go in.no no no no no something had gone horribly wrong. yes all you experienced paintballers already know what ive done? smashed the right hand side bearing, all into little peaces, i know what an idiot.
all was not lost though with a bit of improvisation i replaced the right hand side bearing with some round metal thing i found in my tool box, like a washer with a small shaft in the middle. bearing replaced, pin inserted, trigger in thank god for that.
so the trigger looked sweet and ripped for about day or so, just as i was about to mug this lad behind a bunker the trigger stuck in the back position and would not fire, the timing could not have been worse, this happens about 1 in every 100 trigger pulls and is a real pain in the a*se. so instead of posting comments about what a retard i am, if anyone else has had a similar problem and fixed it you will maybe tell me and post it in the comment section?
After all that the trigger is very good, looks good and works like it should, i just wish i hadn't fu*ked my trigger straight away. so in conclusion great trigger just be fu*king careful when installing the god dam thing.

Lack of adjustability compared to some other triggers
This trigger rocks. The fact that it is made out of such a light material makes it entirely possible to use it with none of the the magnet in. I personally pulled both magnets out and then adjusted the trigger to the point that it is just under the pressure of the switch. This allows me to obtain walking speeds that I could never get on the NDZ trigger that i was using.
If you can deal with the shape (which i love) then get this trigger.

Two magnets for adjustable recoil
No hammering out pin
I've seen this trigger on other ion's at my local field and thought they looked sweet and everyone said they worked awesome so i went and bought one. They were right. After punching out the stock trigger pin (which can be a btcih if it wants to), i slid the scythe trigger in and loved how easy it was to install. Just line up the holes and slide the new pin/axle in and screw tight, no hammering. Went and played and it performs beautifully. Walking is easy and smooth and the design makes it perfect for the finger length difference. I did a little adjusting to set it right to where the trigger hits the switch just as the adjustment screw hits the trigger frame for little play and extremely quick firining. Pricing is good for the top of the line trigger. Definitely wont buy another trigger unless this somehow breaks in the future.
If you are looking for a new trigger, this one will make you very happy, and trigger happy.

Easy to install and tune.
This trigger took me all of about 5 min to install, and a few more to tune it to my settings.
The pull is very short if you want it to be. Or long which I don't know why you'd want that.
Overall I don't think it has any flaws besides maybe the flat color and lack of color choice.
this is an awsome trigger!!!! IMO by far the best out for an ion. first off, the shape for some reason seems like i can doubt my rof. it just seems so fast, i love it. it is very very light and very responsive with a good return and a light pull depending how its set. it is quality made. the only thing some ppl might not like is that it is made of delrin. they seem durable. the young gunz team at my feild has then and they seem to holding up pretty well. i havetn met anybody who didnt like these on their ions. awsome triggers
if you have an opntion get this trigger. IMO it does not get any better for an ion.

There is no other colors to chose from , boo
Well I first tested this trigger from my friend, and it shot ropes way easier and it felt more way more comfy while i played. After that day i told myself I HAD to get one. So a week later I ordered one and I was still in awe of how smooth its ran! Never jammed with the 25g switch, and I believed the most important which is comfortbleness. It feels like it God made this trigger just for me. Well anyways there is no slop and the pin that you get is very nice as well! Get this trigger its worth the money. Also...if you want to u can paint to match your gun, which I think I might be doing soon.
GET THIS!! You wil not be dissapointed, theres no slop, it fits perfectly on your fingers, and it shoots perfectly!
Stock trigger - i like it ok except the snap is too, um, snappy.
CP Roller trigger - good trigger but i wanted the curve like the Scythe - helps me walk.

Shape makes it nice to walk.
Comes with Pivot pin.
Won't fit with a Blackheart board w/o modification (see review).
The trigger just glides, super smooth pull. Comes with 2 magnets so you can adjust the return tension - i popped in both and it's flawless. The curved out shape definitely helps walking, since the middle finger doesn't have to come back as far as the index finger so it's very comfortable to just rip all day.
Some might say the price is a little more than some triggers but it's really too close to judge. I got mine for $35 at a local shop. There are definitely more expensive triggers, like Killer Karbon's carbon fiber triggers ($45 each).
Like the weakness states, won't fit with the Blackheart board. But you can relocate the speaker on the board and that'll solve the problem. So it isn't much of a weakness.
It's a nice trigger, well made and comfortable to walk.

Well I first got thhis trigger and the instructions were very simple to follow. I removed the stock trigger and within minutes i had the new trigger on my ION. I Adjusted it and turned my gun on semi, set up a table with the red chrono on it, and went to my back yard. I Started shooting first shot second shot 3rd and so on. then I got crazy I was shooting 17 bps and I have only been able to shoot 12 before. this trigger helped so much. I helped me to shoot ropes like never before.
Buy this trigger it helps you to shoot ropes like no other.
