Unhappy Techt bolt snapped today

Went out today to get a few games in, and while at the crono station getting all dialed in, I suddenly get a BIG air leak. So thinking I blew a hose or something I go back to my table to tear her down and low and beholed look at what I founnd.






So any one know what the warranty is on a Lightening bolt? Ganna email them tonight, but since its Sunday not expecting to hear from them today. Just thought I would stop by here to see if anyone has had this happen to them, or delt with there customer service.

Me too. Thats the reason I went with them over others that were using delrin and the like. Oh well, if its not covered under warranty Ive been meaning to try something new. Lucky for me I had my back up marker (stock Ion) so I could use the bolt from it. Quit a kick in the stock bolt.

i hear something about a 7 gram prototype too...
thatd be interesting to have a 7g bolt, thered b no kick, but at that point, id be worried about the durability of the bolt and its momentum. i mean, the lighter the bolt, the less force on the ball as theres less mass to the bolt giving it lower momentum at the same pressure outputs?

but thered b almost no kick whatsoever

Tech-T has a warranty on their bolts as far as I know. Im pretty sure they will replace it with a brand new L6.

Now, i dunno about replacing it w/ an l6, but they will replace it.

I just got an l6. Could have been a mix up...or something, but yes, mine did the same.

Never realized those were 2 pieces. Neck must be hollow, ala firebolt.

For guns like ions the bolt weight doesnt do too much since air is pushing it
