Well i got the slg ul about 2 weeks ago, and it looked amazing out of the box, i was used to low end markers so this was a huge upgrade. When i opened it, learned all the functions, tweeked the trigger a little and started rocking it. I sounded, nice and fast on semi. So then a few days later i aired it up. First it started leaking from under the trigger after about 50 balls shot, so i took off the tank and everyhting. Then i read online how to fix it, all you needed to do was take out the bolt, clean it and relube it, so then wala perfect once again. Then today i went to my local field to play and i tryed rocking the trigger and it was IMPOSSIBLE like litterally, maby because it was cold ( i live up north ) but it was impossible to go maby above 5 bps. So i asked a guy that had a PM7 if hee can help me out and he said stock triggers suck on proto youll need a new one, so i suggest as soon as they come out with one GET IT. But other then that its a great gun stock. I suggest getting a on/off for you dont have to keep your tank off, and a new barrel because 11 inch is just way to short 14" is perfect get a DYE UL i recomend.
All in All great gun, onec the few minor upgrades are put on. So if you have a low end looking for something more for a good price get this gun.
Having played mostly pump for the last couple of years, I rarely walk the trigger anymore. I learned how to aim and make shots count. Carrying over the same style of play of quick and effective snap shooting, I found the SLG wonderfully accurate even with an over-bored paint match.
My setup includes a Viewloader Revolution and 48/4500 Guerrilla Air tank with Center Flag 420SV reg. This makes for a very light setup.
Upgrades on the marker included a DM9 feed neck collar, laser eyes, DM9 trigger, and Dye Airport on/off. The only upgrade really necessary is the feed neck collar. The rest is fluff. I run my pump without an on/off ASA, and it's no big deal.
With a topped off 48/4500 fill, a full Revvy, 7 pods, and on a mission to dump as much of it as I could, I was able to empty 6 pods before running out of air with roughly 20 balls left in the hopper. When it ran out of air, the marker cycled similar to a Spyder running out of air, only quieter.
The Revvy kept up well for the most part, but I found myself out-shooting the loader once I grew accustomed to the trigger. For a little background, I started out in tournament airball in 2006. After playing every weekend for a year, I learned to walk a trigger on an 05 Ego, peaking at 17-18 bps on the board ROF display counter. I achieved similar numbers on a Bob Long Infamous Intimidator which also had a ROF display counter.
The SLG has a distinct snap from the sear when it's fired. You can feel it through the grip and the reg. It's not so much kick, as I noticed no barrel lift. Other than that, it feels like it cycles as smoothly, quickly, and as quietly as a Matrix. The UL frame feels great, and makes a very comfortable hold when maneuvering and snap shooting.
Maintenance was also simple. The firing assembly slid out of the breech in two pieces, without the need to break it down any further. There was only one o-ring to lube on the bolt stem, and a few on the outside of the bolt. The only hang up I had was running a swab through the breach and having pieces of the swab catch on the sear.
Overall, I was impressed by the performance of a relatively low cost marker from Dye/Proto. It appears very well designed for durability, reliability, and low maintenance.

Smarts Parts Ion- Better built, not as fast shooting, a lot heavier and a little cheaper
Invert Mini- Longer lasting, sleeker design and will out preform both ion and slg stock
DLX Luxe la crusaders engraving
basically stock but what really do u need to add to a Luxe.
Autococker Karnivor Pro Edition
E2 trigger w/ Z Board
Not very reliable
At the time i bought the SLG i owned a Smart parts Ion. When my SLG arrived i was stoked. I took it out to the field the first day and it shot pretty good, the modes are very easy to understand it just didnt take very long to set up, However, the second time in went out to the field a week later, this is where the trouble began. My bolt kept getting lodged into chamber and would jam the entire gun causing me to have to take the entire thing apart and fix it. after a while of this happening I was completely fed up with it and sent it back to dye. 1 month later i get my gun back and the whole issue was the little black bumper on the bolt. they said they were doing a recall on them and that is what was causing all the SLG the mess up. ever since i got my gun back it shot normal and everything was fine.
-actual gun overall
shoots good, can get up to 20+ BPS, nice grip in hand
not too bad for a stock barrel, not a necessity to swap out for something else
im not a fan of the screw in allen key feednecks but it is nice because it wont come loose on the field, just a pain to keep tightening and loosening
a bit stiff and a little hard to rock but with ramp its fine
-Body and milling
very small similar to the newer NT and extremely lightweight
-Reg and asa
kinda standard, basically bottom of the line proto
in my opinion, kinda high for what u truly receive
Bottom line, if i had the chance to go back and get something else, i probably would. i just wasnt a fan of the hassle and running around i was doing trying to get this gun working.
If your looking for a gun with low costs, get something a little more reliable than a proto.
Very good report quality vs price
Ergonomic, Low maintenance, Shoot great and fast
A little louder the DM series
This gun is awesome. It's keeping from speeding a 1000$ on high end gun.
There is a big dougth that Proto remove the SLG UL from his 2010 product lineup because it was in straight competition with there middle range marker like the PMR.
Both of my firends bought the PMR and they all got a lot of troubles. They both sold it. My SLG UL works great. It is low maintenance. Shoot straight and fast and it's very light.
I rated it 10, not because I think it's the best marker ever, but definitly the best of his category.
Well i bought the gun about a year ago as a back up gun. It is an ok marker but it does need some upgrades if your going to use it as your main gun. also i highly recommend getting a spare parts kit for it, because it likes to eat o-rings ( well atleast mine does). i get about 5 mayby 6 pods out of my 68 / 45 tank.
Good back up marker but it could use some upgrades
nice gun for 300 its light and for the most part can keep up with fast play. There are improvments for it i would get a new asa and feedneck first. I did have some problems with it. after about 2-3 cases it craped out on me and started leaking all over the place, chopping paint, and i got spikes in velocity. i called proto (dye) up and talked to them i have sent the gun back to get fixed. I am hoping that they will fix the problem. But once they fix it i am going to get a new gun and just use this as a friend gun or backup. good try but still has flaws and by the looks of the slg 10 there isnt much that will be changed.
This is a great gun if you place once in a while. i think this is a good entry level gun with basic tournament features. would i recomend this to a friend? depends on their experiance in paintball.
Tippmann 98 Custom, Response, Flatline Barrel - Awesome, Durable, Still used for Woodsball
07 Spyder Sonix w/ Rocking Trigger - No comparison
08 Invert Mini w/ Virtue Board - Okay, chopped like crazy, trigger was terrible
Proto SLG Ultralite
Ironmen Dye Trigger
Redifined Virtue Board
FREAK Barrel Kit
Kingman Fasta Hopper (Don't hate, 30+ BPS)
68/4500 Pure Energy tank
Barrel (see review)
On/Off valve (see review)
Trigger feels Great
(Stock barrel should be changed, see review)
Right out of the box, i ripped through 1000 rounds of the most brittle balls i could find in about 25 seconds. No breaks or chops. The trigger has a "monkey club" design, in which the pivot point at which the trigger is dropped forward from the trigger frame. This makes the trigger feel more natural in the hand, and allows you to tear through paint. Paired with the OLED board, this gun is an absloute beast on the X-Ball field. I play snake, and do not shoot after the buzzer. This gun is so extremely light, it has reduced my time from board to snake to under 1.45 seconds. I also play woodsball, and this gun is perfect. It is so extremely quiet, I could take three shots from twenty yards, and the person wouldnt know where I was. One of the most impressive aspects of this gun is its amazing air efficency. I can shoot a full case of paint (without chops or breaks) on one full air tank. Also, I had a race with my friend and his E-TEK to see who could waste a pod quicher on semi. The SLG UL won by five seconds.
Now, to the upgrades. I would suggest to anyone to get an On/Off valve. It is just easier that way. Not necesary, but it helps. Also, the barrel. It is one of the best stock barrels I have played with, but 11 inches just doesnt cut it.
Amazing gun, for tourneys and rec, for woodsball and speedball. With the right upgrades, the Proto SLG Ultralite will rival Planet Eclipse markers.

Ego 7 and proto slg ul
dye back with stiffy tip on the SLG
first buys are deffenitly clamping feed neck this is a must
others that make it nice are an on off asa and a barrel
other than that its good
Great gun, easily programable, light, small but not to small, accurate, quite, fast
Stock feed neck is junk
They dont make color kits for it yet
Great gun! it shoots increadibly accurate with an aftermarket barrel. the stock barrel is alright but its stock... you can always get better unless your spending 1000+ for an ego or dm
iIam comparing it to my ego 7 and it is slightly wider and longe but its shorter it has a low proile when the hopper is on. its 10x quieter than my ego mainly cause its closed bolt but i dont care.
It is extreamly accurate with my "diffy" barrel (dye back with stiffy tip) lol
Verry light and the bored is easuly programible without an lcd...
Compared to the ion mini and etek/2: this is a deffinite buy! for $300 ha cant beat it!
compared to the g3: everyone says go with the g3 but the g3 has insane amounts of kick and is basically a horrible gun compared to the slg ul
Great gun deffinetely buy it if you got 300 dolleroonies and want a nice gun!
Cannot see the status light in the day
Plastic ul frame
The 09 slg is a wonderful gun its a perfect gun for a budget baller or a pro. I took it to the field for the first time a couple weeks ago and i was amazed on how good the gun performed it was very accurate and efficient. The only problem i had was that my loader wouldn't feed paint because my batteries were dead
If you are a player looking for inexpensive marker you should pick one up
StockSLG UL with Proto 14" 2pc barrel, Halo B hopper
barrel (if you're picky) and feed neck (if non quick release bothers you)
Price and weight.
Straight out of the box it has amazing performance. I was very impressed with the low noise of the marker even with the stock barrel, the trigger pull is amazing on semi auto i was easily able to walk out a full hopper in about 15seconds, you want to run with it she'll keep up, when you're setting it up definitely check out youtube for in depth instructions on how to program the board to your liking. If you're frustrated with markers that are inaccurate totally pick up this marker!
I( have played with other speed ball markers and milsim markers, I finally got fed up with all of them sighting someone in and missing by 6" was driving me insane, the Proto SLG UL out of the box with the proto 14" 2pc barrel has increased accuracy a staggering amount and cut down on the amount of times I "spray n pray" this is the best marker I've owned and made a believer of me on the proto line.
