I was in the area of Richland county and i wanted to go paint balling. So i was thrilled to find out that there was a field in the area (not many close by you really have to drive over 30+ miles to go to any other decent fields). They are a smaller field that is mainly set to cater to small groups and party's. When i went they had closed tournaments and were only running private partys which i thought wasnt good cause i couldnt play but the owners were very friendly and set up a custom date that my friends and I could play. One thing that was great was that we didnt have the 10 person minimum that they ask for but they were More than happy to wave that rule for us. Now when we got to the field i was mildly impressed that they were as far as they were for a field that just started up not to long ago and for being in such a area that paintballing isnt so mainstream. I have played at several other fields including some large fields in other states and while yes the bigger fields did have more courses and larger groups of people on a day to day basis top-guns totally blew them out of the water when it came to a personal touch. The staff was very friendly and was more than happy to help us with anything. They even let us customize the rules for the games that we wanted to play. One thing in particular that stood out was one of the staff members, who when my gun broke showed me what was wrong with my gun and how to fix it (and offered to order the parts and install them for me) he accually gave me his gun to use for the final 30 min. That was one of the coolest things that has happended at any field ive been at! No other fields that ive played at have helped a new player the way the staff did. (and to give a new player a chance to play with a high end gun and see what its like to have a great gun really made me get into paintballing even more.) Other than that the pricing was excellent (the field is NON-PROFIT so it all goes back to the field) the rentals werent the best but you cant expect alot from guns that get beat up alot. Overall though the people that rented were happy that the pricing was really good and the guns were reliable and semi-accurate (alot better than other fields) the paint was ok it was a cheap brand but alot better than what you wuld get at walmart or somewhere else. The day overall was a good experience and the value was excellent. Also I kept intouch with one of the staffers who has cleaned and upgraded my gun for me (he did it all very professonly and was VERY fair about the pricing) i was only charged a fraction of the price of a big field to have my marker fully cleaned and new parts put on (the staff told me about different parts and what they would do) it helped me alot to know what would help me out and to be able to order it and have them do it for me and adjust it for me is of great help (they used dow 33 or love juice as lube for my gun it was my choice of which type) also they do escrow (they act as a third party for gun purchases so you dont get scammed on a online purchase [ebay])
when i bought my new (used) gun they did escrow for me and they cleaned and tested the gun for me and the gun had a faulty valve which i would have been screwed if it wasnt for them. they contacted the seller and informed him and me and he paid for a new valve which they installed. Every one should use these guys for buying stuff online! but through out talking with the staffer i found out next season 05 will be reat they are putting in new high end fields and a ton of other new stuff! right now id give them a 8.5 out of 10 due to the service and hands on help they provide but next year will be alot better!
