Cousins Paintball Outdoor - Great Field
Cousins Paintball Indoor - Great Speedball Field
I think Cousins Paintball is a great field. From your reviews I can tell most of you people dislike Cousins alot. I dont know why. I have gone to both High Velocity and Cousins many times. The fields are made for 2 different styles of play. High Velocity is for milsim type players and Cousins is made for just plain woodsball players. I live 20 min. away from both fields and people where I live are either hardcore HV paintballers or hardcore Cousins paintballers. I happen to like both equally. Even though this review is not supposed to be about Cousins, I want to clear things up about the two fields because I feel that the people writing these reviews on HV is giving Cousins a bad reputation. I have gone to each field at least 20 times each.
High Velocity's and Cousins prices are about the same. $20 for addmission, $10 for rental (both fields rent Tippmann Pro Carbines)and about $100 for 1 case of paint (2000 balls). I find it cheaper to go to Cousins because I get free addmission passes to Cousins off EBAY. At both fields I use around 600-800 paintballs and spend (without free addmission pass to cousins) around $80 to play the whole day.
TYPE OF PLAYERS:
Both have a fair mix. Some first timers and some serious players.
Both fields refs are about 18 years old. I do notice that HV refs are more helpfull and easy to find. Cousins refs dont really help unless you ask and you can usually find them sitting around smoking and talking to each other. I would rather have a HV ref help me but Cousins refs are not bad at all. Just a little lazy.
High Velocity fields are designed to be liked by milsim type paintballers. There is military vehicles but not many. There is 2 planes that you can go in, but they are not military. They are just old twin engine private planes with everything ripped out of them. Out of every 10 vehicles, only 4, I would say are true authentic military vehicles.(most are jeeps) Some non-military are pickup trucks and others are plywood things. Even though most are not military, it is still very fun to stick your barrel out of a window of a truck and shoot people. The basic layout of a HV field is a big clearing with vehicles scattered everywhere, trenches and dirt mounds to climb and in some areas woods.
Cousins fields are just plain old plywood buildings in the middle of the woods. Nothing special.
Both fields rent Tippmann Pro Carbines for $10 but HVs rentals are newer and in a little better condition.
Both have smelly porta potties.
Cousins has a pickup truck that has a freezer, that sells a wide variety of drinks like Snapple, Coke, 7UP, water, milk and more. The truck also has a heater that holds coffe, pizza, sandwhiches, hot dogs, hamburgers, and stuff I have never seen before. It also has lots of candy.
High Velocity has a perminant little wood shed thing that has drinks (mostly Gatorade and Coke), fresh hamburgers right off the grill, (they cook them there) and stuff like that.
Cousins has an overall bigger selection. But they are both tasty.
The fields are for different types of paintballers. Also alot of people write these reviews right after they go to the field for the first time. HV is so different and fun that right after you go there its very easy to bash Cousins which is nothing new. If you like milsim paintball, HV is the place for you. If you like normal woodsball, you would like Cousins. Its your personal opinion. I think you should try both fields ( they are a block away from each other) and make your own desicion. I give both a 10.
