The regular ACP bolt is higher flowing and would be perfect for LP.

As to the lowblow, I dunno how well it'd work, but I've heard people had drops in velocity when installing it, which means its lower flowing and thus not as good for LP.

You are looking for a bolt that incorporates o rings. Most delrin bolts do not have and o rings...and in LP applications, the best seal possible is a must. Also, lowering the weight will help, so the lighter the better.
Honestly, I run delrin bolts in my LP Spyders even though they are not supposed to work well.
IPS Sunbear is a great bolt for LP. It is uber light and super flowing! My Fenix is under 300psi with a factory ACS. Most of the time though, I use a factory Kingman aluminum bolt with the venturi removed and polished. In most cases, this would be my choice.
Check out Otters pages. He goes into great detail on polishing, LP conversions and everything else Spyder. Here is a link:
