Well we bought the 5 piece set and headed out to play. We all chronoed at 250 to be on the safe side. Everything seemed to be going fine for a couple games, until we noticed the small holes on the side of the bunkers. These holes were most likely caused by whoever was behind the bunker shootting their own bunker. This happens all the time in paintball, and the fact that these bunkers couldn't even take a hit at 250 from point blank during the first day of play, I was very upset. We did everything accroding to the instructions, and even underflated them slightly to be sure we wouldn't run into any incidents. Well that obviously didn't work, so we threw some cheap stickers on the holes since the patches take 12 hours to dry and continued playing. By the end of the day we had about 7 total holes in the bunkers. The weather wasn't hot(which shouldn't be a problem since R2 claims the bunkers are UV resistant). Also, the stakes for the smaller bunkers broke easily. We were using a rubber mallet and still they managed to snap.
Now before you critique this review, everything was done according to the instruction manual, and then some. I e-mailed the compnay about the bunkers and they said to send the broken ones back and they would send out new ones. But I would rather not waste money shipping them back just to get more sub-par products. We are now looking at other companies to get our bunkers from.
Would work if you dont mind shooting at around 200 fps and only use something softer than a rubber mallet to drive the stakes in. But if you inted on using the bunkers over an extended time, not worth the money.
Dispute: 1rst the stakes are plastic so you must use common sense that they'll be hard to put into "hard" packed dirt i had a similar problem. Even a rubber mallet would break them, If you can't push them into the dirt then ther ground is too hard.
2nd It tells you to chrono under 250fps however they the company might havbe forgotten the toughness of the paintballs however the bunkers we're probably over filled which happens alot because even if its semi warm out side the bunkers air inside will expand with Heat even more than the air outside. UV doesn't matter Black attracts light which is heat in the case of the sun. Therefore this is the case.
3rd The product is a "NON-COMMERCIAL" bunker which is made of like 18.5oz material where as normal ones are 23oz the size and and #of oz these bunkers use are what make it cost as much as they do. 3 out of 10 isn't close to fair for this product.
To anyone who reads this make sure you do your homework carefully. Its cool to get them but the biggest thing you have to think about is NOW YOU have to clean them! HEY peace out and To the owner of the bunkers It's possible you got a bad batch, but you could have had other problems as mentioned.
