Review: My first time playing paintball and this field has got all the equipment you'll ever want available when you pay the flat rental fee. JumpSuits, Gloves, Jackets, Masks, etc. In all sizes imaginable.. I showed up at the field with no equipment what-so-ever and they were able to hook me up with all of the above and a decent CO2 (12oz) rental marker with a viewloader. They had a good ref on staff, really knew what he was doing and even gave us the opportunity to invent our own game. After being first eliminated in two games in a row, the Ref gave me a few pointers as to where to hide in woodsball and I was able to take out more than half of the other team and pull a victory with neither me or my partner being eliminated in a 2v3.

Had a group of 5 players, all fairly inexperienced. 3 of them had equipment from home. There were some pro players who arrived in the afternoon, but didn't play with us.

**EDIT: 2 weeks later **
When I arrived around noon, there was nobody there besides the ref and the shop keeper so I played a couple 1v1 games with the ref and about an hour later, 5 players showed up. All of them used rental gear. It was really hot and humid and they've got free ice cold water with cups and everything set up at every field, which was great. The only awkward part of the day was the change of pricing which made things confusing. I think they switched brands of paintballs mid-day and adjusted their pricing accordingly. The group was sold origins and I was using 32 degrees Competition Paint I had left over from last visit.

**EDIT: 6 months later**
It's been a great summer. I've picked up a lot of paintball gear and I'm not using the rental markers anymore. So now I'm paying about $20 for admission with free all day air and about $65 for each case of Draxxus ProBall or Triumph paint (2000 rounds). They're still filling the air off of the scuba tank as most people in the area are still shooting CO2 and very few show up with HPA. I get roughly 2200 psi fills off of the Scuba tank. Everybody is very light on paint at this field, which means you generally shoot less and get shot less than other fields in the area. I have a pack, but rarely need to take a full pod onto the field with me, usually a hopper full is more than enough for up to 3v3. I've seen people win 4 or 5 games on a single hopper of 200 but also seen a player shoot through 3 or 4 pods and a full hopper in a single 3v3 game and not hit anything except bunker. It really depends on your play style, if you're more mobile and sneaky, you'll generally shoot much less paint, enjoy yourself more, and do better when there are few players.

**EDIT: 6 months + 1 week later **
Vundembar is now the field I play at every weekend. Cheaper prices, they have a compressor, and I don't have to drive an hour to get there.
