I know a lot about coasters, but I don't recognize the acronym "GIB." Whazzat? And Invertigo models should count, as they're essentially a hybrid of the two you're asking about.

That being said, I'm a huge fan of neither, but I think enclosed-train boomerangs are slightly more tolerable than SLC's.

The answer to your question is: YES.

GIB means Giant Invertigo Boomerang like all the Deja Vu's and they should'nt count because i dont think they are as rough as normal Boomerangs

I'd go with SLC because I've actually been on a boomerang that wasn't horrible (Zoomerang at Alabama Adventure).

But if we're gonna talk about the off the shelf Vekoma pain machines, it's rude to leave out the flying dutchmen.

Probably SLC although they're close. I agree with your decision to exclude the inverts. And the flying dutchman models aren't painful they're just awkward and not smooth.
