A successful deflection is based on your attack roll exceeding your opponent's attack roll. Exceeding it by ten or more deflects the bolt back at them.

OOOOH, attack Roll! That was the other piece to the puzzle that I was looking for. I didn't know that! Thanks! I knew about the feats and saber parts but not the attack roll.
