Review: After doing extensive research here on pbreview, I came down to purchasing the Proto SLG or the Tippmann X-7. I wanted something that would give me woodsball and speedball capability. So I went down to my local PB store to try each of them out. Hands down to the SLG.

But what was extremely entertaining for me was they sold me a "Black SLG" for $260 Canadian; when i got home I realized that they sold me a "Black SLG UL" for the price of a Basic! Score! :D Am i really going to correct their error? ;)

After slapping on my tiny 45/4500 tank from my now retired Ion, the Macro Line connection to the regulator started leaking like a sin. Not that bad though, i just replaced the line and it now works fine. Minor hiccup.

With the 14" Ultralight Barrel, the Vlocity Jr and the 45/4500 tank, this is a crazy light and tight set up. Great for me cause i usually play front or mid in most games.

Changing the settings on the board is a breeze. The colored LED's make it all so simple. I never take it off the PSP settings anyways.

After playing with this marker for many games, whenever i chrono the SLG I get a consistency of +/- 3 fps. Just awsome.

And even though I run a small tank, my little 45/4500 usually results in 900-1100 shots. Thankfully at my local field air is free, so I just fill up whenever my Pods are empty.
Conclusion: This is a handy marker to own. 100% recommended for beginners and intermedites alike. If you are looking to get a step into speedball while still having the capability of being bashed around in the woods.

I give it a 10 because it is the best marker in the $300 US price range.

10 out of 10

How loud is the SLG in comparison to your ion?
