Period of Field Use:
September 7th, 2008
Other Fields in the Area:
Xdrenaline Zone and Fun On the Run, cant compair any to this indoor experiance. Sure they all have speed ball but neither of them have AC and they both have larger fields
I have played at this field 2 times now. The first experiance was great, refs were friendly and enforced rules and I really enjoyed it. The second time there was a totally diff. set of refs there. These refs knew alot of the advanced players so they stood on the side line telling the players where me and my team was at on the field. I knew they talked to the players on the field because when I got out i stood 5 feet from the ref who was doing it and heard him. When I asked a ref about it he said they did no such thing and said if I wanted to argue about it I could leave the building. Same trip 3rd game of the day playing with advanced players, once again the refs buddies. I took a direct google shot to a brand new V-forge Grill mask, the shot shattered my lens. I showed the owner and he had all the players chrono. Every single play was shooting above the set 260FPS and one was over 300FPS. Refs told them to turn it down but never rechronoed to check. I think it was just this lazy bunch of refs that day acting like it was a day to hang with their buddies instead of doing their job. So right now Im running 50-50 with my experiance there. Other than that the AC is great. Fields are fun and the back room is the best if you really like a fast game where you are forced to move. Pro shop was awesome huge inventory. Im giving a 5 for now due to my 50-50 experiance there. It does not matter how great your facility is, its the refs that make it good and that one time not only did they make the games unfair they allowed my equipment to get damaged and could have caused serious injurys to players
Dispute: do you realize that no matter how high a paintball marker is shooting it will not shatter lenses. paintball lenses are designed to stop paintballs without breaking... a paintball will break when it hits something hard. a paintball would have to go through your lense in one pice in order to break them.

Never said there was penetration i said shattered. And yes it has been proven that a object with that much force is capable of breaking small bones such has medicarpals and it can shatter lenses. I have seen both cases happen. And one case just happened to me my mask so I know it can happen. Besides this is not a rating of goggles its about how a field and its workers handel them selves, how they handle situations and the quality of the fields

there is no such thing as a medicarpal in the human body.
you must not know the definition to "shattered" here it is, polycarbonate lense can take alot of force to break, and not with a paintball.

Technically, there are metacarpals, which are bones in the hands, and it takes a 450 fps shot to "shatter" a lense. It may show like a small ring that looks like a shatter, but it's just the chemical defog coming off. Happened to my lenses.
