First of all. Some of the reviews on colchester paintball were written a long time ago and colchester has made some big changes to their facilities from then to now.
They have many more fields and are planning on making many more. They now have a Sup' air field, 2 new woods ball fields and they are leveling out more land to make more fields. When i talked to the owner of CP, he didnt really have an idea of what they wanted the new fields to be. When your there you should ask them about the new fields and make a suggestion about a filed you would like.
There paint is excelent, and its not the cheaper, inferior quality paint that most other fields carry for a lower price. They carry Pro-Caps, they make X-ball and Origin, and its very good, high quality paint like I said before. Its worth the price. There paint prices are very good. Its the cheapest price in VT for the quality your geting. The pricing is as follows:
AS for the rentals they are great. They have Tippmann Pro-carbons and Tippmann 98 customs. They now have 2 or 3 supped up smart parts ions as well as a WGP autococker with e-grip, Angel speed and other great guns you can rent.
All of the guns they have run off of HPA (compressed air) instead of CO2 but they do carry CO2 for those who still want it. A change that they made is that HPA used to be 1$ per 1000psi but they have changed that so its free. You still have topay for CO2 but HPA is much better than CO2 anyway right!
They have extra masks, HPA tanks, barrel plugs, pods, harnesses, etc for $5 extra. Hey for $5 you can get an HPA tank and fill it for free insaread of having a CO2 tank and have to pay $2-4 to get it filled each time. You get a 20oz CO2 tank filled twice it would cost $8. Just rent a tank.
They also do season passes. It cost $140 Adults and $100 Any students. The season pass includedes entry fees and Co2 as well as $10 cases of paint. When i get the money im thinin i might get one of these passes.
The Staff is excelent, very nice and helpful, The refs are very good at what they do. They are very fair. But they do are very nasty about safety. If you take your mask of ina game they will yell at you but if you do take your mask of in th emiddle of a game then your an idiot.
They have candy, gatorade, propell, water and stuff liek that for a few bucks. They dont have any restrooms but they have woods but im trying to get him to either make or rent a porto potty or something like that. HAving to take a leak in the middle of a game really stinks.
They are open Monday-Friday for appointment only.
We are open M-F by appointment only. Saturdays reservations are from 9am-noon, noon-3pm, 3pm to 6pm. Open Play (walk-ons) is from 12 noon-5pm Saturdays
In conclusion Colchester paintball is slowly improving and they are doing a very good job. All the other fields in the are are starting to close down believe it or not because of Colchester. They're trying the best they can to improve their fields and make it an enjoyable place for everyone. I would give this place a 10 out of 10. But they should really think about putting in a bathroom.

I don't know of one field that has closed because of Colchester.
I would be happy to provide you with a list of fields that have closed and why they have closed if you need clarification.

Some more research should have been done on your part. For only playing in the woods in your area you sure know alot about other fields you have never been to.
Paintball Paranoia use dialblo paints. reviewed on PBreview had very good standings.
Here is a link to diablo reviews.
Hidden Sights Paintball used Nelson paints. Anarchy, Navy Seal and Hot spot. Also with good reviews as noted in the link below.
X-Ball has also received great reviews though PBreview so i won't argue with the quality but your statement is in fact completely wrong.
