    I have used Ti in the past, but now use...

    Extralite's ExtraBolt 12 AL 7075 T6 Bolts. 3.5g for 4 bolts. Just a 1-2g lighetr than ti, maybe?
    I just prefer the colors, that's why I switched.

    Al okay for water bottles?

    I just wanted to ask, are alloy (7075 T6) bolts okay for a full size water bottle? Can the various carbon cages (straps g-strings really) handle the larger water bottles okay.

    Yes, the AL bolts should be fine. Many people use them for full water bottles without problems.

    second that. Alu is fine for a water bottle. I've been using alu bolts for years there.

    Purdy blue ano is a nice touch, too!
