x10mtn Saturday, September 2nd, 2006
Period of
Field Use:
Just once
Date There: September 2nd, 2006
Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Other Fields
in the Area:
Xtremist - Lewisville, NC (No comparison. Xtremist is horrible and doesn't exist anymore)
NC Tactical - Lewisville, NC (Awesome field.)

I just moved to the Raleigh area last weekend, so I have no experience with other local fields.
Directions
to the Field:
Just north of Hillsborough.
Review: Pros: Predator seemed to be fairly established, which means popularity, customer loyalty, and success. The woods field has a lot of varied terrain that made firefights quite interesting. The trees are big enough to provide great cover and close enough together to make movement easy. Underbrush is thin in a lot of areas, making for great visibility. There is a fort for Attack-N-Defend games. The nets around the two speedball fields and the air bunkers were well-maintained.

Cons: Speedball seemed to be the main focus at the field, even though there was a great woods area to play in. The woods field seemed forgotten and rundown, the fort was a mess and falling apart. There were two or three refs and even though they were nice and had good attitudes, they seemed more interested in hanging out with their speedball buddies and reffing speedball games than running the whole field. The refs would only come out into the woods if it was a small, compact game being played near the staging area. A large walk-on group came out about mid-day and were pretty much left to their own devices.

Neutral: The staff at the front counter were nice enough, but seemed indifferent to me. The pro-shop is a converted double-wide and they have fill stations, vending machines, hot dogs, drinks, and sales inside. Papa John's Pizza delivers to the field. The staging area is half covered, and there is plenty of seating, but it was very messy. The trashcans smelled and a lot of the tables were covered in wet paint and dead bugs.

Overall: As with any field, the attendance is what makes or breaks a day of fun. That field has a lot of promise if a lot of people show up to play. Otherwise, you just sit around and watch speedball games or have 3v3 games out in the woods. The terrain in the woods really made playing enjoyable, so I plan on going back.
