Review: Let me preface my review by stating that in the 4 years that I've used Jaegers, I've actually only been there about 5 times during that period. Each time I go I am reminded why I haven't been there for a long time. The field, in and of itself, isn't bad. The smell isn't horrible, it's just a musky cave. But that is where the stuff that isn't bad ends.

First, it's in a cave where the humidity is about 100% 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It doesn't matter what mask you wear, it will fog some. (I've got a fan equipped JT, and it fogged)

Second, the floor is sand and when you combine that with the high humidity and a zillion busted paintballs, it's basically glue. It gets stuck to everything, and after it took me almost 2 hours to clean my cocker after a visit, I can assure you that you don't want to take a high end marker in there. If you think sand can get into something, it will, and if you think you can get it out, you are wrong because it is stuck there.

Third, this is the most expensive field I have ever seen, or even heard of. They only offer 1 kind of paint, and it's $100 a case and it is only slightly better then what you can pick up at Walmart. They don't offer ANY options for BYO, and I've seen them kick people out for have a dozen rounds of old paint in their hopper with the paint they bought from the field. I try to limit myself to half a case per day of playing, and I can't get out of there without spending $70 or so. That's 2 days at Drop Zone, for example, and you get much better paint.

Finally, and this is the big one for me, the staff. Now this doesn't apply to everyone. I know 1 guy who works there who is a nice guy, and did some great work on my cocker for me dirt cheap, but the ref staff is horrific. The cheating that goes on in this place is insane! My last trip there I hit a guy, with a clear mark and good break, right on his thigh. Not only did he not go out, he didn't even bother to wipe it! When I called for a check, he claimed that HE had put ME out before I shot him, and that *I* was cheating. Now, I did get marked just after that. From another player *FROM BEHIND.* 12 times. That is right. 12 times. 7 times after I called myself out. What did the ref do to the cheater/wiper AND the bonus ball guy? They gave ME a warning, and then went off to joke with the guys cheating.

To sum up, if you like to cheat or know the refs so you can do whatever you want, this is the place to go. If not, find somewhere else. Anywhere else.

I can't possibly rate this field low enough. I'll donate my gear to charity and never play again before I return there.

Fist off, you should always report cheaters or bad refs to the Owners Jackie or JJ. One of the two are almost always on hand. Bad refs, unfortunatley come with the territory sometimes and we do our BEST to weed them out. You have to say something though. Secondly our paint prices were reduced over six months ago, and we actually offer 3 different kinds of paint (and have for quite some time) for the indoor field and 5-7 types (depending on what is in stock, including Evil-MidEvil) for the outdoor field. Indoors we offer GAP (awesome paint), Blaze and Draxus Rec-Sport. All of which are a much better quality than you will find at Wal-Mart. We, like may other fields require you to use our own paint for two reasons. One, it's how we make the majority of our profits. Secondly, we use a white fill, it doesn't dirty up our walls effecting the lighting, which is much better as of late.
