Paranoid (Lemoore), Blackbeards.. They all have their benifits- or at least at one time they did. More recently the fact that owners cant decide on prices and cannot employ anyone with a real work ethic or desire to creat a good atmosphere has drained any real benifit to traveling out of town or across town.. Other fields are much less organized and qaulity of play is degraded by the fact that the refs are the players/customers..
Directions to the Field:
Located 1707 W Jensen Ave, Fresno, CA at the back of the field- drive all the way through the park till it dead ends into the field. (3 dollars at the gate for fresno residents or 5 dollars per car for anyone else).
I have been a customer to paintball for a long time- by long time I mean 5+ years of continual playing with some minor down times inbitween. In all of my experience Maximum paintball store has been a one stop shop for all of my gear. Starting with the basic rec use equipment up to my tournament extreme use gear. Naturally any store that is capable of supplying such a wide range of requirements and excellent choice of product would be able to make a great paintball field. The field is placed on what seems like 10 acres (i could be off on size by an acre or two) of land that has a paved walkway down to the fields and grass on each field. The grass is very well maintained to an extent that i haven't found on any other fields (including blackbeards and paranoid). There are no massive dead spots or sink holes to break an ankle on.
Each field is separated by netting and the paddocks area has tents to keep the sun off your neck. Currently there is no proshop but I've been told the plans are already there and are just waiting on electricity to be ran. The anemities have all of your CO2 and high pressure air needs- prices are VERY reasonable. Field paint is priced very fairly and ranges from whitebox to tournament grade. The staff is extremely helpful if you need your tippman advised for a leak or high end gun looked over (no parts on hand YET but they will be with the proshop i imagine).
All in all my experience so far has been excellent. I have really enjoyed the quality of fields and the lack of drama between operator and customer. The fields are changed weekly and there is no shortage of interesting layouts to keep you on your game. Ive been told the plans for a large scenario field are already in the worlds and the 3rd speedball field will be going shortly. This field is definitely worth a stop and definitely worth your time for your weekly/monthly/yearly paintball outing experience.
