11.4 grams lighter than the stock Ion bolt. This translates to a quicker cycling time, less recoil, and less air required to push the bolt back and forth
Made of aircraft grade aluminum, hard anodized, making it rugged and long lasting
Designed with high-flow air porting which requires less air pressure, and a lower dwell. Dwell can be reduced from the default setting of 50, down to between 20 and 25. The forward chamber is also hollowed out so paint is hit with a cushion of air which will distort the ball less, leading to a more accurate shot with less paint breakage
Multiple o-rings in the rear of the bolt allow for a better air seal, and less leakage when the Ion is fired. O-rings are made of neoprene which lasts longer than other o-rings commonly found elsewear
The Trinity Paintball Ion Sick Bolt is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Very light and fast
saves air=low dwell
Maybe has a break point... not likely
Excelent product, cheap and durable in a few words: awesome for the price
I bought this bolt for the price and the looks (it was like a transition bolt beetween the stock and the firebolt) at first but is a awesome bolt and Im keeping it for good
The air flow is great and it makes like a cucshion before hitting the ball so the paintball will go straight every time
but i would recomend first to buy a qev... i have clippard and its good
you can set your dwell to 14 or even less!!! mine works at 8-9 with the qev and that saves a loooooot of air, maybe 330 shots for 1000 psi of air or even more
i recommend it a LOT... and i rate it 9 because nothing is perfect
and sorry for the spelling english isnt my first lenguage
This bolt is great it weighs about 12 grams less than the stock bolt it doesnt seem like much but when you are holding both of them and comparing it makes all the difference. I hava a 48 ci 3000 psi tank and i had about 2000 psi left and i shot 4 140 round pods and about another 100 rounds. Thats roughly 660 rounds with only 2000 psi left and thats pretty good. It is estimated you should get around 500 shots with a full 3000 psi tank. And i got this bolt for $20 which i think is definitely worth the price.
It lowers operating pressure and dwell so in turn saves air which is absolutely necessary. I will give it a 9 because it is an amazing bolt but i know that there are better ones out there.

better air usage
Still not quite the firebolt
I got this from a guy off pbn for only about 15$, which is still better then firebolt.
When i first compared it to the stock bolt, there was a considerable weight difference. I was very pleased with this bolt. I noticed there is absolutly no kick to my ion now, even though the stock bolt didn't exactly throw bruses on my arm, i could still tell a difference.
As far as air usage, i noticed a slight difference in how many balls i got for a tank fill, but nothing to really brag about.
I'm guessing this bolt will be looked down apon compared to the firebolt.
Really i dont see too much of a difference, but if your building up a ion to sell it, i think it would be a bigger turn on to see a firebolt.
overall im very impressed with it, i was expecting a bolt slightly better then stock bolt, but once again im wrong.

$10 cheaper than Firebolt
None observed yet
Not much to say except this bolt works very well. Only a couple grams heavier than the Firebolt yet performs almost exactly the same. Also $10 cheaper than the Firebolt. Seems durable and I haven't seen any problems as of yet. I was a little concerned before getting this bolt since there were no reviews posted about it on this site. I guess I'm the first to say this bolt rocks!
So far this bolt has exceeded my expectations. It does what it is supposed to do and comes at a great price (I got mine for $30). I'm giving this product a 10, not because it's the best bolt out there, but because it is a well made bolt that does precisely what is expected of it.
