This is easily one of the best fields in the state. It does not handle the volume of players each weekend that All Star does so there are a few details which the staff can focus on. This field is still relatively new, and is definetly in the developmental stage at the moment. Currently there are 3 fields with plans to add 2 more (a woodsball field, and an x-ball field). The fields are tournament style and are a regulation 5, 7 and 10 man size.
The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. if you need spare parts (i.e. o-rings), or help fixing your marker they will be more than happy to help. Because of the low volume of players the staff has the time and the opportunity to help new players learn the game and its tactics. Also you get to know the guys there and become good friends. Due to the higher volume All Star cannot do this, which is understandable.
As far as comparing the field to All Star I will only say a couple things. This field has grass so you slide and dont have to worry about having black and blue knees the next day. This makes the field a little better in my opinion, that coupled with the more 1-1 feeling that the staff provides, again this is mainly due to the lower volume of players, but still it makes the field feel friendlier. The only problem I can see with this field is that it is on the Kaneohe Marine Corps Base. Which means that it is not in Honolulu, and could mean a longer distance to travel for people. Although it is not that much, about 12 miles from All Star. Also because it is on the Marine Corps base, civilians (such as myself) need to obtain a base pass from the pass house before going to the field. However, this has been worked out with the field owner (who is a navy person himself), and the base. Merely let the owner know you will be coming down and he will get you on base no problem. The only reason i say this is a drawback is because it is an extra step one must take to get to the field, and sometimes the pass house is busy and getting a pass can take 20 minutes, although average time for a pass is more like 5.
As I mentioned, this field is still in its infancy. Not many people know about it, and it is still undergoing a LOT of improvements. However, even now it is a very good field to play at. For more information i suggest going to the website, www.paintballhawaii.com and looking around. The website is also under construction, but almost done. When it is done it will include many pictures of the 3 fields of play.
Yes it is true I WAS the head ref at this field. However, when i wrote this review i was NOT the head ref or affiliated in the field in any way besides being a player.. I was named head ref in February '03 after i recovered from a motorcycle accident which caused me to quit my job and therefore freed up the necessary time to perform duties as the head ref at this field.

It seems as though your got worse!! Roland's team didn't play at the Commander's cup. They did play in San Diego, and did okey for a few guys who never practiced at all before the NPPL. So if you play for a major team now, you still got some screws loose. Get your facts together before making stupid statements.
