Review: Well i have known these guys for a while now. Ive played woods ball with them a few times. I haven't yet played in the speedball field yet but i do want to point out to Matthew Nichols that if they concern themselves so much on safety then why when they were hosting that tournament a few weeks back didn't they have 12 or 20 foot netting. Instead they use this beat down net that doesn't touch the ground. So during the entire game balls were flying under the net into the viewing area and tearing my legs up. Also I almost go hit in the face. I was not wearing a mask because i was a SPECTATOR! I am getting eliminated from the game and i am not even playing. Luckily I am a good sport about it and I love paintball so I will let it pass. Im sure you will get some better nets in the future k. ;)

well the reason the nets were raised up a little bit off the ground was becuase the wind was literally so bad that when we tried to tie them down they started ripping off and almost blew off several times. i dont see how someone could have almost got hit in the face unless they laid down the whole time. some people did get hit and some vehicles were hit and we apologize for this inconvienience but we could not have post poned the tournament because the wind was that bad the whole day.

cranimesao, u need a tape measure? anyway, the wind was so bad that day it also blew down part of duck and dives netting also. its hard to fight mother nature.

They're right, it happens at all the fields, the netting can not stand up to all the wind thats thrown at it.

Well that's really funny. I agree no one can beat mother nature but paintballs can bounce under a 2 foot gap at the bottom of your beat down golf course nets. I was at duck and dive with high winds and there nets didn't pull off the ground because they were set up decently and actually reach the ground with excess. PD nets had old rusty roofing nails and duck tape holding them up. What do you expect that they can withstand tornadoes? Y'all got new nets yet?

The nets at duck and dive have never been torn down. They have like 50 nails with plastic rings to keep form tearing the net drivin into each and ever pole, with nylon rope tied going across the top and criss-crossing across the middle. If there is any way they get blown down it's from hurricane force gails. If you don't believe me go out there yourself. upyours you must not been out there any if you say they're net was blown down also.

So you are telling me those black nets that was flying in the air were for paintball I thought it was odd for people to run from the nets flying at them but that would explane for the mishaps of the balls killing everone that windy day

well look at it this way..the wind was extremely bad..we tried to nail them down but that wouldve ripped the nets..we improvised by using wooden spools..sure they didnt help much but we did try to keep it as safe as possible. it didnt work very well but the nets are fixed up now so for the future the wind will not be a problem
