Just want to see everyone's opinion is on the two. So tell me, which one do you think is better?
Please provide reasons.

The only advantage the SP-8 has over the SP-1 is that it has an angled feedneck. If you like having a bigger marker, that's an advantage too. That's not a plus for me.

The SP-1 has bolt-out back, just like the Vibe. The SP-1 is to the Vibe as the SP-8 is to the Ion. Same internals. So the SP-1 will be easier to maintain, and if you think that bolt-out-back isn't a big deal, just think of the stress you're putting on all the wires/connections every time you have to take the entire frame apart so that you can remove the bolt.

Thanks, I've decided on the SP-1. Can you put a firebolt in the SP-1?

Yeah, I think pretty much all the recent SP spool valves use the same bolt, more or less. But why would you want a firebolt? It doesn't give you a significant advantage over the stock bolt. Get an L7v2 or a Hollowpoint, they're much lighter and efficient.

I have an L7v2, though the Hollowpoint is lighter. So light, in fact, that they don't recommend you use it with a QEV because it's too fast.

I would get the Firebolt, its a lighter bolt and I use it in my 2 Ion's, 2 Sp-8s, Epiphany and SP-1.
Coming soon.

It may be lighter than stock, at 15 grams....but the L7 is 7.1 grams, which is less than HALF what the Firebolt weighs. Just sayin'.
