ion bolt?

Been out of the game for a few years now and am currently building a ion to get back in the game. Back in the day I ran a L6 bolt and it was wonderful.

So now im wondering what's the best bolt on the market to not break the bank.

With so many options now im stumped. Lookin at the Redz bolt as I seen it has been compared to the L6.

So let me hear yalls opinions.

L7 is your best bet, you can try orange nano bolt as well

TechT L7 and DeadlyWind Hollowpoint are the top contenders. Orange bolt w/ Extreme upgrade would be third place, mostly because the bolt and the Extreme upgrade (that it practically NEEDS) are purchased separately... and i don't know if Orange is still even around.

Why do people do this wanna-be hk thing? I mean hk people dont even play paintball, they just whine and start drama while wearing the ugliest stuff. Seriously you find light blue and pink to be attractive colors for your parents 1500 dollar investment (your gun/marker)? If you want to whine keep it off the field and save it for the internet; O wait! THATS EXACTLY WHAT YOU DO! Haha, if you don't play then don't whine.


I want your G6r parts and upgrades, sell them to me, because you wont get anything for them if you sell/trade them with the gun.

Aside from having dual tail o-rings, there's nothing special about it. Better off with one of the other bolts.

If you are looking for a cheap dual tail oring bolt, I had good luck with the V2 warrior bolt. It is a 15 dollar rip off of the SP fire bolt. But I replaced it with a L7. I heard that some of the warrior bolts broke, so it is probably a hit or miss thing.

I actually have one of the warrior sl bolts, its defiantly better than stock, but nowhere near l7v2 status.

I love the L7 its quieter and like 1 gram lighter than the HP bolt. Only thing i love about the HP bolt was the A.B.R. (anti ball roleback) due to the stalk it rides on. It just gives you a strait consistent ball stack, but i prefer quietness. Iv owned and shot both of these bolts but i like the L7 better.

I have both the l7 and hollowpoint and I would go the the l7. I tried out the hollowpoint this weekend for the first time and it shot the rubber tip and front oring on the stem part out the barrel and pretty much busted every shot after that. I switched back to the l7 and shot all day without a problem.
