This is the lightest bolt on the market. It weighs in at 13.6 grams. Less than half of the weight of the stock bolt, and about half the weight of most of the other after market bolts. Even lighter than the nano which weighs in at 17.3 (23 with delrin back).
It has the latest mods, shaved rib cage for better airflow, milled out center to lighten it, larger holes for better airflow. Basically its a version 2 of the lightning bolt, way lighter.
Due to the super lower weight of the L6, your gun will have the least amount of kick of any gun. This bolt will literally make your Ion the smoothest shooting gun on the market.This means that your gun will have virtually no kick with each shot. Its really quite amazing to feel. Your friends will envy you.
You can really hardly feel the gun shoot. With any other gun, when you shoot at anything over 3 balls per second, the gun shakes quite a bit with each shot. The more the gun shakes the less accurate it is.
We have designed our bolt to have the least amount of kick possible by making it the lightest and the most gas efficient.
Another aspect of a bolt that not many people think about is internal o-ring drag. We all know that the orings need to fit snuggly against any part in order to create a good air seal. We have designed the L6 to have the least amount of internal o-ring drag possible without having leaks.

Light, Good Air Efficiency, Accurate Porting
I got this product at my proshop when they screwed up my order and charged me an extra $60, so I said I'd just get the bolt on store credit, as I already wanted it, but was going to hold out a bit longer. I globbed some lube on it and popped it in, lowered my dwell to 13 or so, and started ripping. The air efficiency of my gun is improved due to the increased air flow, allowing me to run at around 120-130 on my Ion. This bolt works exactly as it should and is cheaper than the Orange bolt, as well as lighter. If you need an aftermaket bolt and want to crank up your Ion's performance, go with the L6. Once you add a QEV and the L6, there is nothing left to do to your Ion (save a reg and/or a trigger if you must).
Good buying decision. If you're looking for a bolt, go get a L6.
I have not found any weaknesses with the product so far.
I got this bolt about a month ago, and all I can say is WOW! This bolt is so light, you can tell the difference as soon as you take it out of the box.
You can really tell the difference with the new bolt. First off, there is NO kick. I cannot feel any kick whatsoever when I shoot. Im sure that there is a small level of kick, but it is unoticeable unless your really looking for it.
One of the best things about this bolt is that it increases your efiiciency. Combined with a QEV, it is really awesome compared to stock. I don't really know the exact number off a 68/45, but I there is a definate improvement off the stock bolt.
Also this bolt slightly increases you maximum CPS. I can shoot 20bps with paint. (Limited by my hopper). The signature gold color is on this new L6 version of the bolt too, which is very cool to see flash across tjhe breach when you dryfire. Not really important, but still pretty cool.
Last off, it is only $55 off TechT's website, which is relatively cheap.
It increases your efficieny, lets you shoot faster, reduces kick, looks cool, and is only $55!!! What are you waiting for? Buy it!

Wow as soon as i got this bolt i took out my firebolt bolt and my stockbolt to compare weight, and man there is a HUGE difference in weight, i put the L6 in my gun and lubed it up pretty good, i set the dwell to 4 to test it out and it didn't cycle all the way, i got it to 6 and it cycled fully so i set my dwell setting two higher so my dwell is set at 8. 8! thats low but hey it works. i lowered my input pressure to 130 psi and my ion shoots like a dream, after dry firing a couple of times to tune my gun with the new bolt...i filled up the halo and let it rip...let me tell you this ion feels like a shocker now with this bolt...no kick and very good consistency...very big difference between the firebolt and the L6...man just get one and you'll see the difference...I PROMISE
Great product...the L6 bolt is definatly one of the top bolts out there for the ion...although a little pricey, in the long run you'll find that this bolt is worth every cent...and did i mention the sick gold colr? it's like a lightning bolt...sick! 10 out of 10
Saves alot of air
I wanted to get a bolt for my ion to make it alittle faster. I was looking at this and the firebolt. I saw my friends fire botl shot it and idnt see much of a difference. So i went with the l6 because its lighter and he reviews are really good on it. So fair ive been impressed

SP ION yellow body kit with new disignz no rise feedneck, and NDZ trigger (aluminum). With a Freak barrel kit stanless inserts with a 14" AA, and a shocktech asa on/off, and cp reg and L6 Bolt...Got rid of Black Heart...sold it
Not realli a weakness but there is still kick..unlike themanufacture said
Alright, I got it a month ago and i installed it....lowered the dwell and ROF.......next day dried fired it to break it in....no kick i was so amazed.
Next time i played i was happy...with a little kick and streams of paint..since it is so much lighter. My freinds with ions(stock bolt) r like dude u get a bored..???im like dude bored dont do sh** with yur speed....neways back to the performance.
Performance-Fast..Light.....little quiter i think...
set up-Great for the air efficent users
Speed-Yes i no the bolt dont do anything for your fingers..but since Sp makes the dwell horibble at stock it was holding me back..with like 12 bps...but when i lowered the dwell and teh new bolt i was flyin at 58 bps!!!!!!!O ya...no realli i was shootin 14-16 on semi 16 at most...!!!!!
Alos i got this rit before the L7 came out...Ryan..a TechT worker said that tech L7 has a difrent concept....since it is basically almost a 2 peice design..unlike the L6....The L7 is not a fully proven working bolt liek the corbon fiber bolts.....Get the L6 yes same price but it is better since the concept is better..and it is proven it works..!!!
GET IT..if u have the time money and if u want a new bolt!!!!Great for those fast shooters. I was shooting 12 before and now i am shooting 58 bps!!!!(14-16 bps)...deffinitly get it....

When I ordered this bolt I wanted to make sure that I had the best bolt out there. I read a lot of reviews and checked on other bolts and decided to go with the L6. It was a little expensive being 55 bucks but I heard it was worth it. When I recieved the bolt it looked even better than on the internet. I took it out of the box and it was extremely light. when I first held the L6 it was so light that it seemed like it could've broken just by looking at it wrongly. I was starting to feel a little excited. I took out the stock bolt and compared the weight of it to the L6 and the stock bolt felt like a brick. The L6 was at least half the weight. I was getting happier by the minute. I lubed it and put it in the ion. I set the dwell to 0 and figured I'd give it a shot. 15 seemed to be comfortable to me, but i'm kind of a noob to electros. when firing the gun it chronoed to about 280, so I was prett psyched about testing the air efficiency. I went to about 500 shots on a 68/4500 that was filled at about 2500, it only went down about 1000 psi, give or take. I loved the bolt from that moment.
In conclusion, I would seriously recommend this bolt to anyone with an ion. It may be expensive but it is well worth every penny. Definitely the best bolt for the ion, period.

I went into my local paintball shop and bought this about a month ago, when I replaced it with the stock bolt in my ion I couldn't believe how incredibly light weight it was compared to the stock bolt. when you shoot your marker with this in it, it makes very little sound, and absolutely NO kick to your marker at all. You also tell that you are shooting faster, it's not a dramatic change in your shooting speed but it's pushing a few more balls out a second.
The Tech T bolt is the best bolt on the market for the ion, i recommend this to anyone that is currently shooting an ion.

Before I got this bolt put in I really didn't realize how much kick and noise could be reduced from it. The second this bolt goes in your gun you notice how much lighter it is and quieter. There is nothing wrong with this bolt at all, forget the other bolts get the LR!
Get it! Just do this to help yourself out, become a better shooter, thats why!

I love this bolt. It makes a noticible difference when shoot plus gives you a lot more shots per tank. This is an awsome upgrade! If you have this plus a QEv expect to get ALOT of shots per tank. I am running a 115 psi and a dwell of 15 it is amazing.
You should buy this product because of how much of an improvment it is to you gun.
