Redz International :: Announces High-Efficiency Bolt for the ION

by on Jun.17, 2006, under Accessories, Articles

Redz International, a leader in supplying high-quality paintball products ergonomically designed for the sport of paintball, announces an addition to its 2007 line in the form of a new, high-efficiency bolt for the Ion.

The bolt increases air efficiency, reduces the overall weight of the Ion, and boosts performance in several noticeable areas:

WEIGHT: The Redz Ion bolt is 11.4 grams lighter than the stock bolt. This translates to a quicker cycling time, less recoil and less air required to push the bolt back and forth.

CONSTRUCTION: The Redz Ion bolt is made of aircraft-grade aluminum, and is hard-anodized, making it rugged and long-lasting.

AERODYNAMICS: Designed with high-flow air porting, which requires less air pressure, and a lower dwell. The dwell in an Ion 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, and less paint breakage.

AIR SEAL: Multiple O-Rings in the rear of the bolt allow for a better air seal, and less leakage when the Ion is fired. Redz also incorporated the best o-rings money can buy – they’re made of neoprene, which lasts longer than other o-rings commonly found elsewhere.

All of these factors combine into a bolt that is a “must-have” upgrade for any Ion owner who is looking for greater performance, less weight, and a more accurate shot. Players will get better performance out of their Ion, using less air, which will let them play for longer. The Redz Ion Bolt is available for purchase.
