My UL SLG has been very troublesome for most of the time I've owned it. I've had to make several minor, but irritating modifications to keep it running over the last year. See my full review here:

That said, when the gun does work it works great. I played a scenario game with it last weekend and it worked perfectly, so maybe I've worked out all the kinks with it.

PS: Accuracy isn't determined by your gun- it's mostly determined by your ability to aim and your paint-to-barrel match. The little bit of accuracy the gun contributes is in a steady velocity rate, and in that respect my SLG has been very good. I choronoed it exactly once when I first bought it and haven't had to adjust it since. With a well-matched barrel it's been +-5 fps.

I play woodsball. My main has been a Smart Parts Vibe with a Blackheart board. I just picked up an 08 SLG. I put on a carbon fiber barrel and I just ordered the only upgrade it truly needs, spring loaded ball detent's. This will eliminate the ball being broke at the detent's. If you choose the SLG, I recommend you spend the extra couple of bucks and get the UL SLG. Its a better gun than the basic in many ways.
As far as my Vibe, it never fails me.
Happy Ballin', no matter what your game. Its all the same. The paint still stings like a motha!

Good = When it works
Dependable = No. Not even kind of
Accurate = There are too many things that make good accuracy. You can't base accuracy solely on a marker
