Review: Proshop: It is a storefront in a small strip mall, and around back/behind you can park your car closeby the fields. The store itself had a limited, but adequate selection including a few tanks, clothing items, spare parts, barrels, asa etc etc and of course paint. I don't believe that they had air in the actual shop.

Prices: Admission with all-day air was $20. They had some seconds and white box, but I went with the $50 DXS rec-sport. The paint is kept in the air-conditioned shop and was in good shape.

Fields: Two 5-man sized airball fields, one mid-sized hyperball field, and I believe they had one small woodsball field but I did not play on it. A bit sandy (but I mean this is Florida, par for the course here) but there were no stakes or nasty areas that I stepped/kneeled on. The bunkers were in decent shape.

Food/Drink: They had drinks available in the shop and I heard that they barbecue some burgers & dogs if enough people are around.

Rules: A chrono was available and the field limit is 280fps.

Services: Co2 and HPA are available next to the pits and fields. HPA was maxed at 2500psi when I was there. It was a bit of a bummer, but adequate enough. Some of their equipment was damaged and they were using a few spare parts in their systems. I could clearly see that this was the case and I give em a pass here. They have their own compressor and should get this rectified.

Turnout: This was very poor the day that I went. I was there from 10a-3pm on a Saturday and only one other player paid and played. Now we had a good time and messed around a bit 1v1ing but I was disappointed overall. They claimed that normally more show up and that their two d5 and one d4 team practice most Sundays. I was driving by, so I checked out back today (the week after I went) to see if more people showed up and I only saw one car and 2 players on the fields :-/

Refs: The guy who set up the fields and refed/took care of our air was very personable and monitored all of the games that we played. Safety was enforced, but both of us were experienced and knew to be aware of precautions.

Staff: I spoke to the owner and the ref dude (forget both names, sorry) and they were both very nice. I was treated very well and have nothing but good things to say about all staff at Addiction.

Overall Experience: It is a bummer to me to have frequently poor turnout on Saturdays but this field is a bit more focused on their teams and airball. Sundays, especially if perhaps you call and find out when teams are practicing, are going to be the times to check this place out. Their staff is great, and I can all but guarantee a positive experience with them. At this point I am more focused on rec/woods and walkon games with my inexpensive markers and low funds so I cannot say as I will be coming back very soon. Airball and team or Sunday players should consider Addiction if you are in the area.
