I've only played woods ball & when Pentagon was 1st starting
I started playing paintball 4 or 5 years ago & quit after 1 season. Back then it was outside of Albion & a good day was when 20 people showed up. I started out w/ a 98 & added a few mods. It was fun but very expensive & I couldn't afford it.
Fast forward to September of this year. My buddies were talking about playing again & how the game has gotten cheaper in the past few years & how I could buy a used Impulse for cheap. I was like, count me in! So now I've played a few weekends at the new field (to me anyway) in Fairview. Let me tell ya, things have changed! Everything is great! They now have 6 fields to play on which keeps things fresh & can combine 2 of the fields if we have a big crowd to accommodate everyone. Safety is a huge concern here. Some would say it's overkill, but if you go to a full blown tourney they are much more strict. We have some younger players & want to make sure to play the game safely. It's common sense folks.
The refs are energetic & make sure things are kept fair, they keep a close eye on everyone & do a good job keeping the games organized which can be tough with the big crowds.
Now for the onsite store. You buy a gun new there & it comes with a lifetime warranty, no matter which gun you buy. The price of guns is very cheap too, I checked 10 different sites & his price was still cheaper than the big guys that don't even offer the warranty! By the way, they are certified to work on almost any gun out there including Angels, Cockers, SmartParts, etc...
For people complaining about the price of his accessories, stop your bit*&ing. His prices are comparable & free install on probably most of it. The paint prices are fair & is not the garbage you get from the department stores. Also remember there is a 1 time field fee for the open play.
I can't say enough about this place, it has evolved 10 fold since I last played. The level of service above what is expected & the people are great. If you want a place that is trying to bring back what customer service means in an era that has been clogged by cut throat pricing & sub par products then give them a call. If you want to return your air tank 3 times & pay for the shipping every time just because you saved $35 be my guest. The ball is in your court.
On a side note I just bought an Orracle from another player there, the shop gave me a run down of the gun even though they didn't make any $$ on it! Man that gun rips! Thanks again guys!
