Review: Well, I normally don't contradict what other people review but I'm gonna have to on this one. First off, in no way is splat action cheap! Whoever said that must be a money bags or something. For $25 you get a "rental", mask, camo, pods, and NO PAINT. I'm sorry but pods and camo whoop tidy do!

So I'm going to buy some paint and they only have one type of field paint. Its like "extreme" or some no name brand paint. It was $65 for a case of no name......now, I normally don't think that much of pricing but come ON. I was chopping paint all day with the rental, I had to clean out the bolt tube 3 times!

Now I didn't have my gun, because it was still in the shop, but all my friends had theirs. If you have all your own equipment its $10 entry. So now i'm thinking okay well I guess I overreacted about the prices, thats a pretty good deal, WRONG! Before we started one of my friends needed a refill, $4 for one refill or $10 all day. Now for a 9 oz co2 tank that is beyond ridiculous.

Well I got over all the money problems and just concentrated on having fun. We came in late so we had to catch up with the rec ballers at the bottom of the hill. We got down there right in time for attack and defend. I don't normally complain about reffing but the guy just stood there. He didn't check anyone for hits, he didn't move around the field to watch, he just stood in the middle. After one game of that we were through and went up to play some hyperball.

The hyperball fields were awesome, I was really impressed. So me and my friends went at it for about 2 games. The beginning of the 3rd game and I chop a ball from their rental gun. I squeegee the barrel but it was a break in the bolt tube. So I take it back and they take it apart, clean it, and I miss 2 games. This happened 4 additional times before I had enough and just watched the rest of the time.

Overall they have good fields, bad reffing(unless your a tourney player), poor rentals, expensive no name paint, and friendly staff. I'm going to give them a 7 because this was my first time and it could have been a fluke experience.
