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 Lightening Rod is made of 7071 grade anodized billet aluminum which is stronger than any other like it. To reduce drag and friction during operation it utilizes a self lubricating brass bushing.
Vortex Mod SS
The Vortex Mod was the first hard-coated and teflon coated aluminum internals that replace the stock plastic internals of the Tippmann Cyclone Feed to be released in the paintball industry. Our testing has shown that the Vortex Mod will allow the Cyclone feed to work at lower pressures, feed faster, and last up to 1000 times longer than the stock plastic cyclone feed internals.
The QEPH is designed to rapidly vent the blast of air that is used to advance the loader. By venting the gas quickly, the loader responds instantly. This equates to faster loading with lower pressure.
The standard A5 piston housing has no venting ports (very bad). X7 Piston housing has forward exhaust ports only (better). Meaning that it only exhausts the air that is in front of the piston....not behind it. Its the air behind the piston that is doing all the work and really needs to be vented in order for faster loading.
Techt has recently updated the QEPH to have optional orings that can be used to block or partially block the vents for those times you are playing in very wet, muddy, or sandy conditions.
The TechT Quick Exhaust Piston Housing is the preferred upgrade by Tippmann Users all over the world.
The Squishy Paddles are made from a much softer rubber than the stock A5, X7, 98, and even the newest Phenom Cyclone Feed Paddles. The Squishy Paddles have been designed to increase the amount of paddle surface area that actually touches each ball. This is accomplished by rounding all the edges on the paddles, and molding each so that its as gentle on the paint as possible. Our super-soft paddle material is unmatched in the paintball industry. At TECHT we realized there is a fine balance between a good paddle and a great paddle. Too soft and the paddle will strip from the axle, to hard means more ball breaks. Our paddles are the perfect mix of both. With integrated features like our inter-lock system that insure your cyclone feed will function properly for years to come. It's easy to see why TECHT Squishy Paddles are the first choice of Tippmann Owners EVERYWHERE!
E-Z View Cyclone Housing
The TECHT E-Z View Cyclone Feed Housing is designed to replace your stock housing. The E-Z View Housing allows players to easily see if they are running low on paint, or if they have broken paint in thier hopper. The Kit Includes both the E-Z View Housing & the E-Z View Bottom Plate. The E-Z View Bottom Plate allows players to easily check the status of thier cyclone feed internals.
Fat Hose Kit for Tippmann X7 Phenom - Clear
The FAT HOSE Kit for the Tippmann Cyclone Feed is the best and easiest way to get more from your loader. With the FAT HOSE Kit your loader will perform better at lower pressures. The larger hose gauge allows more air to reach the Cyclone Feed Actuator Piston (AKA Lightening Rod). More air to the piston = more reliable and faster actuation. Faster Actuation leads to faster loading.
Not only allows for more air flow, but its also made from 100% Stainless Steel Fittings. The stainless steel is more durable and will never corrode or oxidize.
