Tmx - no longer exists
Total Eclipse- Smaller, not as safe
Warplay- geared towards a differnt kind of plater
Well, the field is actually unders some powerlines, hence the name. Upon entering there is a gravel parking lot, and two trailers. The Parking lot looks to accomadate 20 cars or so, but there is also plenty of grass, so there really is no space issue. the Trailers are where the field office/fill station is. Inside there are a few parts for sale, and a few boxes however they look to have been there for years (A Splatmaster Rapide was on the wall, and an Automag sight rail in the glass case) so, not really a well stocked proshop, but I did see O-rings and tanks, and those are the things players need, and I seen a few Tippmann 98s which I assume are rentals, so they have the things that count.
The guy who was running everything was nice, and friendly, the prices are some of the best around ($10 field fee $7 air, BYOP). Paint prices were alright too, even though it is a BYOP field. There were a few refs all of whom actually did their job, which is a refreshing change from the norm. Most of the players where a bit young, only a few people who actually looked 21 or over.
The particular day I went the Airball field was not there, everyone was playing on the hyperball field. People watching the hyperball field had to wear goggles as there was no net, and the refs did check to make sure that goggles where on when barrel covers were off. the hyperball field was good, not swampy and none of the pipes fell down, however there were some rather large gaps between pipes, and the symmetry was not all that great on the field. Powerline has many other fields, but we were not playing them that day.
Overall I had a good time, I would like to see what all else the field has, I will be back again.
You went on a Sunday. The airball field is usually up on Saturdays since that is the day the team practices when they're not at tournaments. Walk ons are more than welcome to play on the air ball field when it is up. But your best bet is to come on a Saturday or to call ahead to see for certain if it will be up. There is also a message board on their forum that you can post on to check to see if the field will be up.
