Yours may be fine. You do realize how many threads are made about SLG problems right? I've seen at least 5 rant threads about the SLG. I don't think I've ever seen a rant thread about another marker.


Mine is fine, and it's been through more monkey shine than you could imagine. Rant threads are irrelevant evidence of anything. If you watched my troubleshooting videos, you'll see that the cause and solution of the most common issues are rather modest. The problem is simply (as is said above) numbers, as well as the demographic.

I see clearly that Kevin's case is a true one, and there is no excuse for it. That is self-evident. However the vast majority of issues with SLG's are due to ignorance of the operation, and misconceptions (many set forth by more ignorant people who give false advice in the pretense of knowledge) of maintenance. For every rant thread that I've seen, I've gotten two PM's from new members (some with less than 10 posts) asking me for advice and help. After a link to a video, an explanation of what to do, and why, their problems are solved. Granted, these are 2009 models I speak of, and the fakakta 2008 model is apparently built with inherent problems.

D.K., of all people, you should know the inaccuracies of numbers in terms of testimonials, and personal perceptions. :P

Just look around and see how many SLG's are garbage. Hell, come sit at my field and just watch for a month and see how many break. Horrible marker design, cheap materials, and possibly poor build quality= no good.

For everyone who is blaming it on the individuals that use them... Vibes target the same market as most SLG users. I think I have seen 4 vibes break in the last 10 months...

I can't say Angel's are the most reliable markers but they aren't near as bad as SLG's.

I've been looking, and I can't see many. We've been through this before D.K. I'll sit at your field, and fix all of the SLG's that go down, as well as give the users a short course on their idiosyncrasies. I'll set up a little booth, and you will be the cashier profiting from the tips and charges. ;) Remember that agreement?

Either way, I don't wholly blame the problems on the users. However given the operation of the internals, it has to be understood that it will not work under certain circumstances. True, a Vibe has less of a chance of incurring the issues that the SLG has, but it was designed and released a ways afterwards. I personally appreciate the fact that in an SLG, you can't over-presurize the solenoid. That's an issue that is much harder to deal with than blown seals on the bolt, or a broken sear.

Again, I feel the need to qualify this post with the assertion that I know Kevin's case is something serious, Dye is fucked for the dismissal of his problems, and I in no way approve of their conduct. I can't vouch for them as a company however.

Yes he is, so much so that he's left a trail of dissatisfied women in his wake. :o

That may be true, which is why I have an "Angel" stamp for all of the papers that are poorly designed, and fail within the first paragraph. :P
