Feed neck is all i could think of. If your heavy into paintball i would probably recommend a new barrel, but it is a pretty accurate little thing.
Strengths: Every thing besides the feed neck.
Weaknesses: Feed neck
Review: The slg isnt a bad gun by any means. it was either the slg or the epiphany and i went for the slg after spending about 2 weeks reading reviews. im happy with my decision. The gun is very efficient with air, i threw on a cheap guerrilla air 48ci 3000psi tank and i got, which i culdnt believe, about 650 shots from it, i have two and i got about 630 from the other one. i am amazed at this gun. the only flaw that the gun seems to have is that it seems a little weak where the grips meet the main portion of the gun. it seems like it has to much give from side to side, and when i first gassed it up it had a slow leak coming from where the micro line attached to the reg. After 1 game of playing, my eyes stoped working, i immediately called dye and they sent me a new pair no questions asked, dye has with out a doubt the best customer service ever. other than these minor flaws the gun rips, it says its capable of 33 bps but i dont think its that fast, ill give it 28bps on a good day. love this thing. there is no reason for the "pro/sponsored" or even the "paintball know-it-all" to be slaming this thing because it is a sear tripper, honestly if you say its a "jazzed up spyder" like ive heard others say, you should be slapped. I have shot the rail right before i shot the slg, and i honestly couldnt tell the difference, the slg seemed just as smooth and as solid as the rail. the rail was out of my price range but even if it wasnt, i still would have gone with the slg.
Conclusion: This is a great gun for the price of it, just make sure you have a fast enough hopper to keep up with it.

Could you give me a little comparison between the electra and the slg asking for a friend looking to get in

What? The clamping feedneck is a weakness? It works fine with my Empire B

Mine leaked out of the macro line too. All i did was cut the macro like a little shorter and flatter with a box cutter blade and it stopped. And the only thing i dont like about the feedneck is the composite collar it needs a metal one but my Halo V35 fits snuggly without without tightening it so its ok for a halo or empire b.

Ok well they are both sear trippers and i beleive that the slg is cheaper than the electra. another thing to note is that the proto slg has a awesome reg and an awesone board aswell as a better deesign than the electra.
