Review: Paintball Arkansas is a field that will work for either scenario players or tournament style players alike. They have several courses in the woods that are perfect for recreational and scenario play. If you like the speedball, PBA has two courses. However, the air ball field is rarely ever up. I spoke with a ref who told me they are ordering all new bunkers that should be up within a month or two. Whether that is true or not, I don't know. The permanent speedball field is perfect for 5 v 5 matches. The course is made of various cans, bricks, an aztec in the center, and a snake and this provides for quality games. The refs are always willing to answer any questions you have and are cool guys who will just talk as well. The refs and pro shop guys often let me borrow tools or teflon for resealing if I need it. They do show a slight bias towards the PBA sponsored team, the Little Rock Knights (formerly Renegade Knights), but thats to be expected considering the amount of time the team puts in there and the amount of money they also spend. The knights are cool guys and will let you scrimmage them if you know what you are doing. They are talented, but shouldn't be feared because they are routinely beaten by some of my friends, but my friends are also quite skilled and some are now playing with the knights. The owner Curtis is there all weekend and is always nice to all the customers and helps in anyway he can. The paint is expensive at 68 dollars a case, but with a 1 dollar field fee, it balances with other fields. Honestly, PBA has to make their money some how or it couldn't remain in business so it doesn't bother me. My friends and I are out there all the time and are quite pleased with PBA. With it being only 15 minutes from Conway, it makes it very easy for us in Central Arkansas to play often. I give it an 8 because the airball field is still down and the paint prices, but you can't go wrong playing here.

EDIT: Well I have lost all respect for the knights. This is due to the fact that my game has improved and myself and some others have been beating them. After we beat them, several times during the day, they continually whined and complained. They made me chrono my gun three times saying I was shooting hot. They shot me 6 times in one game and that was fine, but the next game when I bonus balled two different guys on their team they weren't far from tears and continued to swear at me and ask me the f*** I was doing. I look at it this way. If i get bonus balled thats part of speedball, but don't be a crybaby about it when it happens to you. Especially if you are going to act like a champ when you shoot others up. Then they complained that I wasn't shooting "PSP" Legal because i wasn't capped at 15 BPS. I will gladly admit I wasn't capped, but we never said we were playing PSP rules AND when I asked if I could shoot their guns to make sure they had a 15 BPS cap, they wouldn't let me and told me that they were not capped either. So all in all the Knights are cool UNTIL they are beaten and then they turn into 5 year old rich kids who just got a spanking from daddy. I have a word of advice for the Knights, just because you have all the expensive and pro equipment, does not make you a bad a**. Learn to lose and people will like you alot more. You aren't that great.
