Experience:
4 years
Other Fields
in the Area:
Saluda (which I think is better)
Directions
to the Field:
Honestly I cannot give you directions. It was absolute hell to get there. If you're gonna go use online directions use Mapquest, not yahoo. The field is located on a narrow stretch of road and is only visible by a worn out sign that is hard to see if you don't know what to look for.
Review: I decided to play at Woodruff because it was relatively closer to where I live than Saluda. First off getting there was awful. It was supposed to be a 20 minute trip that turned into a 2 hour affair of stopping and asking for directions. But that's not the fields fault, just don't use Yahoo's directions. However, Red Fox does not use road signs at all so don't expect to know if you're close or not. The owner was nice enough to provide better directions if you just give him a call.

=Fields=

Fields are decent. There is a nice selection. The junkyard, while it being alot of people's favorite, is trashy (people seem to really use it as a junkyard, throwing their crap everywhere) and dangerous. The rusty, jagged equipment will easily give you a nasty cut if you aren't careful. However, there are several other fields to go to and the rest are good. I will say the bunker is my favorite and was nicely constructed. Check the website for their list of fields.

=Staff and Facilities=

This is Red Fox's weak point. The main office/pro shop is a small house. It does not have a nice selection of buyable equipment. There is 1 portoilet. So while one guy is taking a dump, you're stuck waiting or going to the woods. I missed a game going to the woods while my party left. We had 1 ref in all of our games that complained that we were playing too carefully by asking for paintchecks. More definitely need to be added. The head guy is actually nice and he'll fix any problems with your marker.

=Equipment and Prices=

Prices are decent. Paint may be a little expensive but 1 box was enough for me and my friend. Equipment is poor though. They do rent out 98's but they are so O-L-D and not well kept. The person responsible for cleaning them just puts a hose down the barrel. That must be why they don't shoot very straight. The hoppers are also crap, they're held together with tape and the lid doesn't always stay down. Also expect misfeeds to happen regularly. So all in all, just bring your own gun and make sure it works.

=Conclusion=

I gave the field 6/10 and the only saving grace of it was the bunker field. If you go there with a mind set of the only thing that you will enjoy out of it is the paintball, then you're fine. Paintball is paintball no matter where you play but Red Fox offers some nice variation in your play. Just don't expect good facilities and hope that people in your party play on the honor system because they don't like to run and check to see if you got hit. Also to remember that if you actually want to have a good time, bring your own gun. You won't with their rentals.
