Everyone has there own opinion on what they will think will shoot better.
Best thing to do is research and shoot both marker's before buying them.

I would definitely take an Ion. I believe they share a very similar bolt engine, except the SLGs are renowned to be incredibly unreliable.

The SLG, when it's working is likely better than that ion. For one thing it has a much better board stock.

However, I've personally found the ION to be more reliable than the SLG.

Ion. Don't bother dealing with the SLG. it's a nightmare. One friend got a good one, another got a ****ty one.

SLG for the win I have had mine for a while and if taken care of then the slg is better every time. My friend has a upped ion new reg bolt and other upps (I don't know ions) and I out shoot him every time.

FWIW - Dye doesn't make the SLG anymore because it was known to be broken. if it worked, you were lucky.

At least the tolerances on the ION are consistent, I've never known anyone to have just a "bad" one. SLG's however, I have known numerous people that returned them three weeks after purchase because the DYE tech they were taking them to couldn't even get them to shoot right. Save yourself the frustration

The SLG I had worked great, but was boring.
I like markers I can do stuff with, and the Ion
is a clear winner there. They're reliable and
easy to maintain.

If the SLG works, it's better than that ION based on the board alone.

Most SLG's don't work due to user error but some are just bad.

Ions are usually much more reliable than SLGs

If you get a working slg awesome. If not, which is very likely, get the ion.
