Review:
After 10 years away from paintball I came back after moving away from my airsoft buddies. There are plenty of fields in the Northern California valley area, but I talked to a guy at a local shop and he recommended Nfinite Edge.

I am really, really glad I went. I've been twice now, and both times were absolutely great experiences. I'll run down the Pros and Cons:

Pros
-------

1) Nice people, nice time. The refs are good and kept the games starting and rolling along without problems. They are very safety conscious, which considering the number of rentals/occasional players is a VERY good thing. All of them were helpful and were willing to talk and answer questions. I spoke with the owner at the end of the day and it is clear that he really loves the game and wants to run a good field.

2) Rentals. Maybe a lot of younger/newer players will complain, but my first time I rented a mech Spyder that was way, way better than the Tippmann Prolite I'd used 10 years ago. Worked fine, no chops. I brought a friend this last time and they've upgraded to Autococker Trilogies - accurate, no chops, the only problem was an occasional doublefeed but no breaks! It was also the first time I played with compressed air instead of CO2 and the fill station is easy with no long lines.

3) No tolerance for jerks. If you want to come out and be a complete ass, don't bother. They won't stand for it. They want to run a family-friendly, recballer style field and I think they do it pretty well.

4) Pump friendly! There were a lot of pump players there, all great to talk to and with guns that made me drool. I'd probably be more excited if one of them hadn't hit me from about 70 yards away, downhill, through the trees. Damn that was a good shot.

Cons:
--------

1) Distance. It's far away, but not too far away from Sac. This is probably more my problem than theirs - it's tough to have a woodsball field in the middle of a city, so what do I expect? The drive out there is really nice, though.

2) Unaware players. There were several instances of people shooting over the net of the hyperball field, and the games were shut down there because of it. Not sure who it was but they did the right thing by shutting it down. Also, when doing a field chrono before a game at the Ravine, a player was shooting too hot so went to the side to fiddle with his electro. I was busy talking to someone so didn't notice a couple of important facts: 1) He didn't put his barrel condom back on and 2) He obviously didn't de-gass the marker. Long story short I got shot in the leg and was kinda pissed. That's some bush league crap right there. Not the ref's fault (everyone had goggles on anyways) but damn, people, if you're screwing with your gun at least point it away from someone so you don't tag them from three feet away. Anyways, Mr Electro, if you're reading this right now I'm sorry I yelled at you. It was just really unexpected.

Compared to the Old Days, this field is absolutely amazing. I've never had a better time.

Overall, I think this is a great field. It's worth the hour drive to me, great fields (except for Village - the only bad thing is I have to hike up the damn mountain before I can play there and I'm old and fat and out of shape.) They're going to add an airball field next to the hyperball field, it's a work in progress.

If you're looking for furious tournament style airball, go elsewhere. If you're looking to have an attitude and light up a bunch of thirteen year olds with rentals, just stay away. If you want to come sweat and run in the woods, this is the place to be.
