Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
HollowPoint features:
7.4 grams pretty much takes the cake for the lightest bolt.... ever?
Lowest kick.
Over twice the valve area and flow path as a stock Ion bolt. Opens faster, flows better.
Contiguous toroidal air flow path. No porting to break up the air flow.
Longer bolt nose section takes better advantage of the Ion's SFT seal.
ARB feature prevents ballstack chops caused from the ball rolling back into the cupped bolt face.
Testing yielded 1800+ full 300fps shots @ 150 psi from a 68/45 tank.
Quick, easy install.
Product Availability 
The DeadlyWind HollowPoint Ion bolt is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Review: got this with my order of DW products today. I was suprized how small and light this was. They speak the truth, it has a mass of 7.8g acourding to my scale. The bolt actuly slides on a statinary stalk that scews in to to back for the fireing can. I used locktight to sucure mine like other reviews sugested.

Key Strengths:

Light- this all but eliminates the kick of my gun. It also seems (to my untraned eye) more efficant then the stock as my velocity seemed to jump about 25 fps (once again this is by eye not chrony)

All metal - this bolt has NO plastic, even the bolt stalk is the new aluminum version. Metal is more durible the plastic so this is nice to see.

Easy to install and lube- took me 5 min to install the bolt, you need to lube 2 things and thats it.

Key Weaknesses:

Back Screw - some people say it comes loose, mine shook loose on dryfireing so i resorted to the locktight and that fixed it right away.

instructions- you need to go on-line to look up how to install the bolt, would like to see an instruction set included with the product in the future

Will update on further testing
Conclusion: Nice product, well made and seems more efficiant. Easy to intall and eliminates kick. Why settle for a L7 bolt when this costs less and is lighter? Givin it a 9 because i would have liked to see an instruction set, or at least a included tube of locktight :P
