The Lightening Rod is designed to work in conjunction with our Vortex Mod and Quick Exhaust Piston Housing. Together, the parts will yield higher rates of fire, and increased air efficiency.
The secret to the performance gains is the brass bushing located where the ratchet and piston rod met. The bushing is not visible in this picture, but will be in pictures to come. The Lightening Rod is made of anodized billet aluminum, and contains a self lubricating brass bushing.
The recent changes have been made to the Lightening Rod in order to increase its performance and durability. The newest Lightening Rods are made of stronger aluminum and no longer use roller bearings.
We feel that these changes will greatly increase the performance and durability out on the field.
This part along with all the Cyclone upgrades will work on any X7, A5 and 98's using the cyclone feed system.
