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.

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

The first thing I noticed when I got this bolt is that it was surprisingly light. I read that it was light in the reviews but I didnt expect it to be that light. The L6 is incredibly smooth and consistent. Easy to lube and work with, very simple and efficient. Not much more to say its perfect I have not found one flaw.
Buy it if you need it. It's a bit pricy but you'll notice a big difference.

Ordered the bolt of of TechT's website and it was on my doorstep two days later, I was very pleased with the shipping. Upon opening the packaging I examined the bolt and was unable to find any flaws or defects in the machining of the bolt. It looked very well made and was very light (mine is the older 16 gram version BTW). After removing my stock bolt and comparing the two there was a definate difference in weight between the two. I lubed up the new bolt, popped it in and aired up to do some dry fire testing with it (was using <name withheld> board at the time). The marker cycled perfectly the first time and I did not need to make any adjustments to dwell at all.
I played with this bolt in my marker about four days later and again the only adjustments I needed to make to my setup were regulator fine tuning adjustments to set my velocity. I played all day from 9:30 till 4:00 and put about a case and a half through the marker. No ball breaks, no FSDO or any other type of issues. I felt I got about an extra case or two of pods per air fill after installing this bolt.
I have had the L6 in my marker for a little over 6 months now and have yet to have a problem. The bolt still looks like it did when I first got it and I have yet to replace an o-ring or experience any types of operational problems that could be bolt related. I am very pleased with this bolt and would recomend any of TechT's products just on the use of this bolt alone.
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.

Price can be.. But its only 55 and its less then some other bolts.
I received this bolt and I loved the gold color. But besides that.. I lubed it up and put it in my Ion and right away I noticed the speed. This is much faster than the stock bolt. You may say, "Oh its just a bolt , it can't make the gun faster" but trust me it can. The small "kick" that some people say a Ion "can" have was decreased to ZERO. I have'nt broke a ball yet in a tournament and a couple practices. It's softer on brittle paint than the stock. The O-Rings seem to be more durable due to having less friction but it may just be my Ion.. My gun seemed a little quieter than the stock bolt. But it may just be me..
Only downside I guess you can say is the price for some but its cheaper then some of the other bolts out there. I thought the packaging was going to be a little better but what can you expect. It came in the usual packaging as all other small gun accesories. A plastic case.
But other than that 10/10
All in all this is the best bolt for the money. It IS better than the Unicorn. No I am not biased.. My friend has the Unicorn and he just likes the L6 better.. Buy it!! One of the main upgrades to make your Ion fire like a Champ.!
i have been hearing all these people talk and debating about the firebolt and the L6 lightening bolt and i had some money so i thought i would try them both out my self and this is what i came up with:
L6 Lightening Bolt: when i put this bolt into my gun i instantly noticed the weigh difference so then i went out and fired it and the change was so amazing, it shot faster and smoother and since there was no kick at all it made it alot more accurate too, then a few days after i played a couple of games with it and it was great, my game changed so much and the part that impressed me the most was that i got 500 more shots out of my tank
Fire Bolt: after i used the L6 Lightening Bolt i took that out and put in the fire bolt and it was ok, it wasnt as lite as the L6 but i was still kind of lite, next i went out and fired it and it was a little better than the stock bolt but not as much as i had hoped for, there was still a little kick and it fired a little faster but it was still no comparison to the L6, then when i played a game with it it was ok but all my friends kept on asking me what happend?
so if you are thinking of buying the fire bolt i highly suggest you to get the L6 lightening bolt instead, it is worth the extra what $15 which is nothing
the L6 Lighening Bolt is the best bolt you can get for the ion, it is the best!!!!!!!

Lightest bolt on the Market for Ion
Efficient, saves gas
Got the bolt off of eBay was $55 got it quick too! bout 2-3 days shipping time. when i got it. installed it rght away. could tell the differnce in weight when i held the stocK and L6 side by side. Double front aNd baCk O-riNgs maximize efficiency and allows you to get almst double the amount of shots per tank fill.
Cool Gold color, but who looks at it??
weighs only 13.6 Grams
i lowered the dwell on my ion and increased rate of fire on my stock board with this bolt was able to tweak my ion TO RIDICULOUS FASSSSSST. and consistent. chrono'ed at 285,287,286,289,287,288...... wi operating pressure at abt 150psi
Stock operating pressure is abt 200psi !!!!!
i would say if your looking to up your ion, this or the warrior bolt would be the way to go. this should be one of your first upps for your Ion.
i Give thIs Bolt 2 tHumbS uP. fiVe stArs and should be the 1st Upp on your stocK iOn.
i went ahead and also got tHe Smart Parts 360 QEV. they make a great combo.
got all the parts from eBay.
