Review: Fields
They have a lot of different fields, and some of the newer concept fields. Stalker is one of the biggest fields in the state. I have to give notible mention to the fact that their airball field is very well done (Very level, netted in tightly). There woods courses are just like any other woods courses in the state (It's woods, and bunkers). Hyperball is a good course, but i feel that it needs a change. They have not changed the design in a very long time. Also, it is a very open hyperball field, and a redesign would do good. There speedball is a little lacking. I'm not a fan of wooden plank speedball bunkers, and the field seems stale (Not too many different types of bunkers). Besides the Marsh, the woods courses have some diversity between them, but not as drastic as i would hope (One field looks pretty much like another besides terrain & bunker design, aka spools vs deadfall). Some courses like the Hole are very different in terrain, but it is very dangerous when it gets wet out. There courses are a lot better than most other paintball fields in the state.

Pro Shop
They do have a very good pro shop which stocks a big variety of different marker parts. The Airsmiths are very competent. A big plus for carrying a LOT of inventory.

Service
The service there was excellent, Mike and Diane are friendly people. I never had a problem getting help when i needed it (Back when i owned a Tippman, Mike would always know how to fix it). Reffs were attentive, and in the action when needed. Cant say i ever felt neglected.

Overall
If you live in the WI Dells area, Stalker is the best paintball fields around. There are a few things about Stalker which i had minor complaints about. When i joined a walk on group one day, goggle shots & gun shots did not count. Now i understand this was probally a rule put in place for the new players, but i felt it was changing the game of paintball too drastically for my tastes. The Pro Shop is at the entrance to the field, of which you must drive down a driveway probally 3/4 a mile to get to the actual field. Not much you can do to fix your marker if it's broken unless you want to drive up to the actual pro shop. The paint the last season i was up at Stalkers was sub par. It was RPS Big Ball. They used to carry quality paint for Field Paint, but my marker hated this stuff, and it was breaking all last season when i was up there. I would not have minded so much if Stalkers was not Field Paint only on open play days. I could have come for Players Club more often, but i have many things to do on Sundays, and just could not make the drive. All in all Stalker is a good paintball field. I based my review off of other fields which i have played in the state, from best to worst. A lot of factors counted in, i would have liked to give it a 7.4, 7.5.
