The Lightening Rod is designed to work with the stock parts or in conjunction with the Vortex Mod and Quick Exhaust Piston Housing. Together, these parts will yield higher rates of fire and increased air efficiency. Users have reported feed rates as high as 30-35 balls per second when using the the Lightening Rod in conjunction with the other TechT Cyclone Feed Upgrades.
The secret to the performance gains is the brass bushing located where the ratchet and piston rod met. This bushing creates less friction than the stock’s design with just a plastic hole. Creating a smoother and faster action, increasing the speed and reliability of the Cyclone.
