Our new ION aluminum performance bolt. Less weight which results in less kick. Telfon treated bolt for even less friction and wear.

* custom profile
* only 20.5gr, making it one of the lightest
* less weight, means less kick
* telfon impregnated surfaces, reduces friction
Product Availability 
The New Designz Ion Pro Equalizer Bolt is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Products Used:
Stock Ion Bolt - weight 27.01 grams
SP Firebolt - weight 15.35
Tech T L7 bolt - weight 7.1 grams

Do the math... Go with Tech T or a Smart Parts Firebolt.
Marker Setup: I'm a hardcore poor gun whore, lotsa markers and counting:
Orange County Bushwackers SL66
Sacramento XSV Ego 06
1 of 150 blue e-star camo Etek1
Bob Long Closer
DYE DM4 (dust black)
Proto Minion 2007
SP Ion (ShockTech body kit)
SP Ion XE
WDP Angel LED 1999
APS Angel A1
2 Invert MINI (gloss black, dust olive)
5 WGP Autocockers (Bob Long, 2 E-Cockers, pump Trilogy, E2)
6 AGD AutoMags
2 JT E-Excellerators
1 VL E-marker
1 Piranha/PCS USP pistol
1 Piranha EVO
Strengths: Teflon coated finish.
Weaknesses: Weight difference between stock bolt is negligible.
DO NOT BUY THIS BOLT.
Review: BUY NOT BUY THIS BOLT. The weight difference is NOT enough to change your input pressure and dwell.

Stock Ion Bolt - weight 27.01 grams

SP Firebolt - weight 15.35 grams

Tech T L7 bolt - weight 7.1 grams

At about half the weight of the stock bolt, the Firebolt helps make your Ion or SP-8 faster, lighter and quieter while dropping the operating pressure about 15 psi.

You can find the Smart Parts Firebolt for $ 20 US in used condition, while the Tech T is considerably pricier at $ 60, almost three times the price.

Do the math... Go with Tech T or a Smart Parts Firebolt.

Conclusion: Do not buy this bolt.

Review: well my ION bolt was f*cked so I ordered a new one along with a few other upgrades. I had these next day mailed, well i was originally getting the actual smart parts bolt but they were out of stock so I was like well ill take the NDZ bolt (it was the only other one they had), but I like it, and it works very well.

Review: With this bolt and a SP QEV, I was able to bring my Recharge to 0 (ROF MAX), and my dwell down to mid-20's... now getting upwards of 900 rds out of a 68/3000, as opposed to 650... less kick as well, this thing flies now... I've been accused of ramping while fireing on semi-auto with this thing, and I only have a stock board and trigger....
Conclusion: GREAT investement... a new bolt + QEV will improve a stock ion's performance in MAJOR ways...

Review: I ran the stock bolt for quite awhile and made some upgrades and besides the NDZ QEV this bolt has made the most difference. I had a hard time telling the weight difference until the marker got rolling. In combo with the QEV the marker was noticably quieter and it seemed to want to cycle quicker. It's construction and materials are alot better than some of the other after market bolts since many of them are 2 piece and glued together.
Conclusion: Definatly worth the money you put out for it. In my opinion best results are gotten in combo with other upgrades such as QEV's and aftermarket boards.

Review: a very light bolt, nearly half the weight of the stock one. It will increase your cycle rate greatly and reduce the little kick the ion already has to nothing. Increases efficiency...very easy to install, takes about 5 minutes. Teflon coated so it reduces friction making it very smooth
Conclusion: Awesome bolt, one of the cheaper bolts...35 on action village
