Period of
Field Use:
Just once
Date There: N/A
Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Other Fields
in the Area:
Knightbreed - I would choose Knightbreed over ABC for the variety and quality of the fields that Knightbreed has to offer.
Review: I checked out ABC for the first time and I must say, I was not very impressed. The speedball field wasn't really much of a speedball field. The incline on the field made it somewhat lopsided. There wasn't any mulch or soft spots at the bunkers that you could slide into. This made the topside difficult as you are running full speed to a bunker and you have to slow yourself down so as to not run over or through the bunker. All they would need is to lay down some mulch around the bunker areas, enough for players to slide into the bunker. They did keep the games going which is good, and they were on top of things as far as safety goes. I didn't have to wait long for games to start up.

Refs did a decent job of paintchecks, but I think there were a couple of refs that were giving away player positions. With any field, refs will tend to help the regular players, I have no complaints on that, just how things go.

Parking isn't too far from the staging area, but it is far enough where you can't store things in your car and easily get to it. I am use to things at Knightbreed where the parking, staging, and fill stations are right next to the field, so you can store things in your car and get to it real easy.

I would say that ABC would bo good for new players that want to get a taste of paintball. But once you get to the next level where you are looking for better competition, I would recommend you checking out Knightbreed, (Located in West Milford) , they have multiple fields to play on and mulch on their speedball fields, so you can get some nice sliding action.

All in all, I wouldn't say ABC is horrible, just not for me. I would recommend everyone to check out both ABC and Knightbreed and make your own decision.

I agree with u about the mulch. abc's speed ball course should have the same turf as knightbreeds sup air course.

The drunken guy that you refer to is not the actual owner of Knightbreed, he owns the land that Knightbreed leases. It's his property, if he wants to drink it's his call, I agree he shouldn't be doing it in front of kids but the actual owners of Knightbreed can't do anything about it.

I have played at Knightbreed for a good while now, and facemask safety is top prioirity, I don't think it's fair of you to say that you'll lose an eye if you play at Knightbreed. If you have a beef with the owners of Knightbreed then that's your situation with them, you shouldn't be posting these false comments to try to make them look bad. Paintball is a sport that does not need this bad blood in its community. I have never had a problem with any of their refs. I have seen them kick people off for unsafe facemask practices. Which means that they are on top of things. Yes, it pisses people off for being kicked off for the day but better that then getting shot in the eye. Any field is going to have its group of players that don't respect the rules. These are the people that should not be playing paintball.

WOW, ive played both fields, knightbreed may have better feilds and more, but the woods at abc dominates it, but i must agree the speedball at abc doesnt compare to that sweet tire feild, but as far as the expiereince i strongly disagree, knightbreed has many first timers, abc is a place where i feel put in my place because they have ALOT of skilled players
