Ok well I'm hoping to clear up a lot of the so called rumors with this review. Because at first I was going to buy some of these bunkers for my team to practice on so we didn't always have to drive an hour to the local field, then when I got on here a lot of people were giving these bunkers bad reviews. Well after reviewing them all I decided it was worth a shot to just buy some anyways because our team really wanted a practice field. So I ended up ordering 16 with 10 big bunkers and 6 little ones ( I think I got almost every model they make of the bunkers). The total came to around $600 which I thought was a good deal for a nice little practice field. So when they finally came I took them out of the boxes and they all came with stakes and patches and everything. I just used a little shop vac to blow them up and it only took about a minute for each bunker which suprised me and I was happy with that. Then I had read on other reviews where people said the bunkers popped easily when you shot them and you had to turn your velocity down real low. Well it clearly says in the instructions to only fill the bunkers about 80% so the bunker doesn't take full impact of the paintball which is pretty much common sense but some people may not know that. So I filled the bunkers up and had everyone come over and we all chronoed our guns in at around 275 which is about what we usually played at. And at first I was hesitant to starting a match because according to the reviews the bunkers popped really easy and they said hot weather affects the bunkers and it was around 87 degrees when we were playing. But anyways we finally starting the match and everyone was shooting a lot and walking their guns taking no mercy on the bunkers, and quite often people would hit the bunkers from point blank range when they were snappin out. When the match was over I walked around the field to check if any bunkers had holes in them but was happy to find out that there was no holes in any bunkers and hardly any paint had actually busted on the bunkers instead it just kinda bounced off (which means less cleaning which is a plus)well after that i was satisfied the bunkers were going to be fine so we played 3 on 3 matches all day and when it came time to deflate all the bunkers and put them up I had found no problems, no holes, no dimples as some people said appeared, they looked exactly as I had got them..after I washed them off of course so the bunkers really impressed me alone with everyone else. Even though the bunkers aren't exactly as big as the bunkers better fields have there still a good size 6 and 4 feet tall which makes for a good practice field. And the bombs are extremely easy to snap out of which I liked. Oh and the bunkers also have these little connector things on them so you can hook em together and I made a snake using those and it worked out really good. Some people also said the stakes were really bad and i figured they would be too because there plastic but they actually went into the ground realy nice and held the bunkers down all day so I cant complain. I really can't see why people say these bunkers are so bad there an amazing deal for how much they cost and they make a great practice field.

Conclusion: Overall these bunkers exceeded my expections, everyone made them out to be crappy and cheap but there actually really good. I think they just overfilled their bunkers which would actually explain a lot of the problems. But these bunkers a defiantly a must buy for anyone who just wants their own field to play on their cheap reliable and have all kinds of differn't models to choose from (even though i would reccomend getting alot of 6 foot ones)But yah these bunkers are amazing for the price and defiantly worth trying them out.
10 out of 10
