Ok first off all of those newbs who are knocking the ONLY field on spokane with a speedball course shut it. You are not pro's so there for you can't make statements like the paint sucks. Have you ever used other paint? it curves too. You can buy Severe Storm But chances are you bought the hurricane. If you weren't cheap newbs buy the storm its great paint. Ok now onto the field:
The speedball course is un-level on one end does that matter...no it is barely higher get over it. When it comes to teams newbs vs good players SHUT UP you will NOT learn if you play crappy people all your life so suck it up and don't be a pansey. Paintball hurts no matter who shoots you so be quite. Indoor field never played it but if your serious about paintball you would play speedball not crap rec ball indoors..unless it is winter.
Now the people and service if you have never been there before like most of you people who have reviewed this you said you went once so of course they are'nt gonna be nice to you they are not there tp baby you like a 3 year old. The techs know alot about paintball more then you will EVER know in your life time. So those who complain about the techs breaking this and that it is because you gun is a crappy spider or something maybe a pirhana. The rentals are exactly that RENTALS don't expect angels or cocker's for rentals come on if you like paintball BUY YOUR OWN GUN makes for a much more fun expierience. DONT GO ON WEDNESDAY thats when the team practices yes they have a very very good team Max Points Factory they are owning their league right now so shut it go on saturdays or sundays best days to go. Also if you want a nice speedball course hit up there new course in post falls. Take highway 41 to post falls take a left at the first light then another left and at the 3 light you come across and then you will see it. Its red and white hard to miss. Even easier way just drive to Quad Sport i think it is called thats where they have the field its nice and even and GRASS. so stfu newbs and go more then once with your own gear and play speedball you will like it alot more.
This is to the kid or guy who said he wouldnt take his eye off his gun there. First off people who go there are not thieveing cleptos that take everything. Mostly everyone that goes there has a nicer gun then you unless you have a gun that cost you $1500 stop saying things like that you don't know the people there so just hush newb and you gun is prolly a brasseagle that cost you 50 bucks

You have issues. Putting people down for being new and/or not having their own equipment? You're a helluva ambassador to the sport. Bottom line is that the techs and refs at any field should treat all players equally. If I had a field, I'd actually treat the "newbs" better than the regulars. The best way to run a successful business is to expand your customer base. You do this by going out of your way to secure new customers while maintaining a good working relationship with your current customers. Aside from good business practices, the only way to make our sport better is to make it more popular. More popular = more dollars into R&D, more products to choose from, lower prices, and greater field availability. Think about that next time you want to look down your nose at a "newb" with a rental gun. You just might scare someone away from paintball and every time you do that you can figure you've just robbed the sport of at least a thousand dollars and, through word of mouth, a thousand more for every kid who thought about playing but decided against it because his "newb" friend told him about the jerks he ran into when he went out to have fun. Not cool. And you're not cool, either. I'm sure I'll run into you there some day. We wont know each other, but I'm the guy who likes speedball AND the indoor course because my mindset isn't as narrow as yours because I'm not so damn worried about being "cool" or looking "cool." I will be the guy giving the kids with rentals paint from my tubes and the one laughing when I gog you with one of my CO2 charged, sub-$300 markers and see you walking off the field.
I bet your first marker was the very best money could buy... Actually... probably a Tipp or Spyder like everyone else out there. Everyone starts somewhere.

i think you should lay off on the newbs. i don't think ur encouraging ppl to join our sport with that kind of attitude. i think u should let the newbs talk, bcz we know they don't really know what they're talkin about, yet. give them time to learn dude. you didn't just hop into this knowin everything that there is to know. don't jump all over them. show them their wrongs, but don't scare them off.
