I have played paintball for a long time and have played som semi-pro tourney's in my time. I love to educate players about paintball and even promote them learning how to work on their own equipment. Joker's Wild does none of that. They dispise you if you buy equipment from someone else and treat you even worse if you work on your own equipment. I was swore at in front of my wife and six year old son when we went out there to get my tank filled and try out my wife's new Spyder Fenix I bought for her. I have never worked on a Spyder before and wanted Jack to show me how to field strip the gun down to bare frame. He talked bad about the marker in front of us and stated he had sold one and would never sell another one like it because it had too many moving parts. News flash...Spyder's have very few moving parts..I found this out after talking to Kingman. I have NEVER received such discourtesy and rudeness from a paintball field in my entire career as a paintballer. I was also told, the local clientel does not like electric markers. Really? I find that hard to believe considering even Wal-Mart carries a line of electric markers made by Kingman now. Joker's Wild charges too much for paint and equipment. I would never buy a marker from them when I can order it on-line or through a store in Colorado I am familiar with knowing I won't get bent over a barrell. Future paintballers...when I buy my next house in the next couple of years, I will be opening a FREE paintball field and will NOT charge for air..that includes CO2 and will charge bottom dollar for good paint. I hope to do this to show Joker's Wild how family oriented the sport SHOULD be.
lawdog30 i totatly agree with you on about 90% of your review. Joker's Wild is where i started playing paintball (about 6 years ago) I've known the management for a while but even still they are very rude people, especially the women. All in all, if you can ignore the people running it - and know how to reset your marker, the place is just good for messing around. If you are serious about building your own paintball field the way you talked about in this review email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know... i'd love to check you place out. *skillet*
