First, let me just say that I am 30 years old and I have been playing at Cutters since I was 15! Now, on to the meat of this review. Cutters is 7 acres of pure paintball heaven! In one 7 acre area, you have it all- hills, flatland, creek beds, sewer culverts, etc. All of the bunkers are natural. They are made from fallen trees, twigs, logs, etc. The woods has been manicured to provide just the perfect blend of cover and some of the greatest shooting lanes I have ever played. Don't get me wrong! If the paint starts flying, you have plenty of places to hide or stalk an opponent. On the flipside of that, you also have opportunities to long ball your opponents and engage in some serious action. Paint and air is of good quality and is inexpensive. Field fee is low and the staging area is incredible. If it's cold, an indoor heated staging area with windows to watch the action is available. If it's warm, outdoor staging tables are everywhere. Chrono is fun, easy, and all watched by the owners. If you have your own gear, you can bring your own paint.Safety is job #1 and the refs are also the owners so you know that they are looking out for everyone. The only downside to this all is two things. The last time that I played the field their rental markers were pump SL-68 II. Not that there is anything wrong with that! I love and play with pumps, but that is going to turn a lot of people off of the field. Second, trying to find them open lately has been next to impossible! They are never out playing on the weekends, they never return phone messages, and are generally out whenever I come by(maybe I should take the hint!). I now play at I-70 which is 45 miles away instead of Cutters which is 5 minutes because I can't find them open lately! Nick and Melinda if you are reading this, please open up that magnificent field so we can play!!!So, let's review:
Pros: Incredible field/ Great field lay-out/ Good paint/ Cheap prices/ Great staging area/ Safety is #1/ Refs are awesome!/ Can bring own paint/ Location(for me!)
Cons: Lately have been unavailable for play/ Pump rentals may be a turn-off for some
I look forward to the time when we can play together again in our 'happy place'. We must ask forgiveness of our sins of playing wretched speedball, and hyperpipe and spray and pray tactics! Only then my brother, will we be forgiven and the kingdom of paint and wooded realm will be ours to cherish forever.
You are on the correct path my brother, for your return to your roots by playing with a pump will surely grant you entrance. I will devote myself to paint conservation by patience, determination and stealth.
Don't lose sight of the dream!
