Review: Grand Slam Paintball is not the greatest paintball field around, yet it's not the worst. I've already been there quite a few times since it's opened and im sure by posting this review they probally can figure out who wrote it. The fields are all decent size fields, but compared to pbmissions, this place dwarves it.

The "urban" field which is a bunch of foam wrapped (boxes?) and cars is a pretty nice field, it give lots of cover but also keeps the game fast. There's plenty of different ways to move on that field. It does not contain any buildings, nor do I think it will by the end of this summer. Some of what the "gunsmith/sponsered player" said below is a tad bit overblown. Don't get me wrong I do belive he know's his stuff, and can fix a marker. From what I hear he's very good with Cockers. I would go on and say more but then it would become a flame, go to the field you will understand.

The "Airball" field - This field is one of the most open, and probally one of the fastest fields there, it's probally only got like 12 pieces. This field is too open, and if you had a few decent players, you could win off the start on by shooting the lanes, or the big open gaps... I myself do not like this field, but I was "told" there is to be more bunkers comming.

The "Apple Crate" field- This field *IS* the best field there, it's the best for CTF, best for almost any type of game, of course except for woodsball.<which i'll get on that soon enough>. It seem's much bigger compared to the other fields, and has less open area. Lots of bunkers, and a nice "T" setup on both sides, makes for some good action. There's a snake on the left side, with larger pillars in it so you can crawl but also stand in the snake. Thus said, if you were to go there dont ignore this field, it's great.

The "Woodsball" Field - I strongly dislike this field, i've been down there twice so far to see the differences, I guess if you had more than 4 people on each team it would be semi exciting, but i'd rather go play in real woods. It's very narrow, and small. You can walk through the brush on both sides almost to the middle from the top, and also then again from the middle to the bottom. But it's very narrow. There's a path down the middle, which I like to choose, because it's worthless to even hide in there. Games here could last all day if nobody moved because if you walk into the "middle" of the field...there's no cover, yet if you stay on the outside you could stay in cover all day.
All in all this field needs to be lengthened width wise.

Ok onto "Air/paint/entry"

10 dollars entry- I dont think that is a bad price at all, but everytime i've been up there. There's no refs at all, and the last time I got a ref he was a little fat kid who didnt even move, he picked his nose, and when we were told to ask for paintchecks he still didnt move. I assume there was a little debbies pie around his area, because he stayed in one spot every game. Other than that, the owner does have a if you play 10 times you get a free entry or somthing like that. It's a good idea I guess.

Co2/air - Well he has Co2, and suposed to be working on getting air? I myself run on Co2 but at 5 dollars a fill, or 10 dollars all day, it burns a hole in my pocket, especially if im not getting fullly filled. I dunno if it's because of the weather, or because of bad filling, I am not gonna point fingers yet. But I do know I played up at PBmissions, and after a fill there I was able to play about 6 hrs <but at a slower pace on my co2 where as I can only play in GSP for about 2 hours, and not being a paintwhore. But then again it could just be my marker leaking air..or maybe somthing else..who knows!

PAINT!- This is the worst paint in the world, sure it tastes good, but it breaks as much as...oh wait it dont! Last time I went up I was able to re-load my hopper with about 6 balls out of 8 **This is just an estimate** that bounced back off a apple crate! Wouldnt you think that if I hit a solid surface dead on it would break? I'm suprised that games even end sometimes, you get maybe 1 break out of 3? Paint on the otherhand is great tasting, or least im told by everyone and friends. I myself dont eat the paint, but im glad everyone is going back to their childhood of eating paintchips.
At 70 dollars a case, least you could do is get some Draxuss <40 dollars a case vender> or maybe even upgrade to some Marbs? Offer Byop? I dunno, im not in the business I only go out to play, but that's my opinion.

From what I saw below, from others I just pretty much restated some points, but I do give some props to them, it's comming together. It could be much worse... I know some people have some strong distaste for this place, but i've had no wrong doing to me, so I cant really flame only tell what I think.
