Tippmann 98 Custom, 14 in. cermamic J&J barrel, 16 oz. compressed air. Not nearly as good as the SLG.
Proto SLG 09, 72 ci. 3000psi Pure Energy, Empire Magna hopper
Maybe a new barrel...but its still very accurate with the stock.
Accuracy, speed, weight, everything really.
Where my tank goes in seems to be stripped. Maybe just me?
The SLG 09 is definitely the best gun that i have ever used. I have only had a tippmann custom in the past but I have used a few others and this is by far the best. The ref i had took my gun after I got shot one of the times and shot it a few times and looked it over. He said that he would choose the Proto SLG 09 over the DM8. The only thing he said was better about the DM8 was the grip.
This gun is very very accurate. In a woodsball game, you can shoot across about 50 yds or more away and be able to adjust your gun to hit someone that hasn't spotted you yet in just a few shots. Obviously it wont be perfectly straight for those people that like to put their guns up to 400fps and then say a place sucks because they turned it down to 275fps (yes, someone has said this to me). Speed is good in my book. Finally got a new hopper which is the Empire Magna Drive. I haven't had any problems with the gun as of speed yet.
The only problem I have right now, is that during the middle of my first day of playing, it seemed that my nitro tank started to screw further into the gun when I was screwing it in and I heard a grinding noise. The very very bottom of my nitro tank is rough and not smooth now and it seems like it is being stripped. This could be just my gun cause I have never heard of this before. Also, there is no leaking at all, so I'm not positive what is wrong with that right now. Other than that, this gun has been perfect for me. This is a great gun for any player of any experience and is in a great price range.
I recommend this gun to anyone. Like I said, I believe my tank problem is just my gun since I have not heard this problem ever until me. It is very accurate, speed is very good, and the weight is just over 2.2 lbs. I believe. Amazing gun overall.
10 out of 10
