here is a total reveiw of predator:
the refs are naot anal about anything, but they enforce safety. Sure the refs are in their teens but they are fair to everybody. THey will answer all your questions. There are 2 airball fields that are great, 1 close quarters field that is being rebuilt, and 3 wood fields. 1 small two acre field,1 attack and defend, and a 10 acre big woods field.
Predator has about 12 covered tables for a staging area and netted fields for safe veiwing.THey have a great proshop and they fill co2 and HPA. Fill prices are not very expensive. but it is 75 dollars for a case of tourmanent grade paint. It is also a bring your own paint(it is a 6 dollar fee). Visit their website for the kinds of paint they allow. They have a portapotty. They also have a soda machine and hot dogs and nachos.it is a 6 dollar field fee. And Al, the owner, will fix anything for you. You can grad random people and play games with or without a ref. there hours are: fridays 1-6,Sat. 9-7,Sun. team practice 9-11, rec players 11-7. Come out and play.
I used to play at the little thing at funtasia but it sucked
havent played at triangle
I love Predator, the fields, prices, staff, refs, all of it i liked
First off there are huge woods fields for big like 7v7 8 8v8s and thats a hell of alot of fun
The speed ball coarses are great, i never felt like they were too small even when playing with like 12 or 13 people on the field and they werent too big if no one else was there and i was playing a 1v1 or 2v2 with some random people.
People have been saying that the refs are *ssholes, and i dunno if they are to mean to some people, but i never saw it or expirienced it myself, actually ive played against and with them a bunch of times and those can be the most fun games.
The big guy behind the counter is totally awesome, when i used to own a retarded e99 that kept breaking i would sometimes bring it to him and he fixed it every time.
Paint is cheap and c02 and nitro is cheap too
The proshop is kinda small but if you need a barrel condom or something you forgot theyll set you up, plus my brother was looking to buy a barrel like a month ago, and they let him take the barrels off the shelves and play a game to test them, so that he could find the best one...i dont know how you could be anymore helpful than that.
Anyway, Predators the only place i play now, its beast so check it out
-Cheap BYOP (Bring Your Own Paint)
-CO2 is cheap (so is CA)
-Variety of Feilds
-Owner will be glad to help you with anything he can
-Cheap to play there!!!
-The one time I encountered a "fight" there things got a little bit out of hand. The fight was between two older men. The refs being teenagers did not jump in and tell the two people to stop. Nothing bad happened and I am sure that if things got to out of hand that something would have been done.
I reccomend this feild to anyone who enjoys playing paintball and having fun. The refs are mostly teenagers but then again so are most of the people who play paintball. They get the job done. They enforce the rules and they are not rude about it. ( Saying this from my 15 year old perspective) I have never heard the refs make fun of anyone or put a newb down. Big plus cuz I am a noob! This place is great for anyone who wants to have a fun time playing some PB.
Perdator paintball is awsome, The people are great. we travel 80 miles just to play there. To the people talking smack about the refs, hey they play too. Every time its getting ready to close for the day they take turns and play with us. If they talk smack its because they have the right too. As for the people companling about the owner and his wife,safety is very important to them.The person that is on the fourm cring about someones eye, think about it a second. The paint didnt come from the field it came from someone working on walking without a comdom on the gun.I hear them tell people that they need to put it on,and people kinda take offense to it but who cares.A electric marker doesnt have a safety so if you touch the trigger it goes off and people like the guy cring try to blame the field.So people dont beleive everything you read . Perdator is a great field with awsome prices.The Refs and owners are very friendly and helpfull in everything you need.So go there and have fun

Other Fields in the Area:
I have played at Triangle paintball and they are way nicer than the people at predator
I've played here 3 times and other than the fact that the ref's are moody as all get out and the lady that fills the tanks is shall i say not that talkative. The owner is pretty nice I have had the privilege of talking to him. The ref's are little turds they act like they own the place and treat all the other people that come and play like crap. All-in-all this place is okay if you really want to play pb that bad, although I would recommend going to Triangle or any other field for that matter Triangle's people are much nicer
predator paintball is the best paintball field in the trangle area. Not at all like the crap field PBC. You don't have to just sit around and wait for games to be announced. you just find a ref and play. the atmosphere is great for any skill levels and the employees are friendly and extremly helpful. The proshop is great and the owner is an excellent airsmith. IF you have not tried this field you have too
there is one in durham not sure of the name of it...but i here its bad.
This place is awsome. Everyone is very nice and its a good atmosphere. Threr is one huge woods course, with little sub sections in it. Then there is an attack and defend course, along with a maze course, and 2 or 3 speed ball courses. This place is sweet cause allthe refs are really relaxed and not all annal about everything. Dont get me wrong i mean they do there job checking hits and things like that, but they dont give you crap they just do there job in a relaxed way. The cool thing is that they filll up co2 for $2.50 instead of $5.00, but they have a spoecial pump with the filler to give you more co2 for your money. They also do there best to hep you with any problems. Bringing your freinds along is no sweat, but even you dont bring any everyone gets along and lets you play in any game (unless they have teams or somthing already). I recommend you go and try out pred for your self. Great feild,great people, great fun.
Predator Paintball has a very relaxed atmosphere, but strictly enforces its saftey rules. All the refs there socialize with everyone and anyone who is willing. Everyone who works there is extremely nice and cooperative. It sports 2 airball fields, a huge woodsball course, 2 smaller woodsball courses, and a scenario course which is named the village. The large woodsball course ist too large for my tastes. Their airball fields are changed every 2 weeks. I've been there 4 times and each time has been extremely enjoyable. I would recommend this field to anyone.
I hope that if anyone is at all interested in paintball in the triangle area that they come check out Predator Paintball. I have been twice and both times were great.
There are all different skill levels and type of equiptment from rentals to top of the line marker.
The people - are very helpful. Al the owner seems to be willing to do anything for you. The first time I went out I was chopping paint like crazy and I took my marker in and he looked at it and made some minor adjustments to help. Dan, one of the refs, is really great out there. He talks to everyone, keeps the games going and will/wants to help you with any question you have. He spent probably 30 mins talking to be about my cocker and paintball in general. Made me and my friends very comfortable. If you want to play Dan and the other refs will make sure you are in the game. Dan also spent time giving me tips on the field, even playing a little 1 on 1!!! How many other refs have you heard of doing that?
The facility - 2 speed ball fields, a villiage/maze, and a couple woods ball fields are all great. I went 2 times in 3 weeks and the speed ball fields were different both times which was cool. BUT the staging area is something that really impressed me. There are tons of tables available and not only is it really shaded from the sun by trees but there is also a large covered area with tables to get completely out of the sun if needed.
There is also food and drinks available as well as a pro-shop.
The prices - everytime I tell someone that I started playing paintball the first thing they ask me about is how expensive it is, but with prices like these they couldnt be farther from the truth. $6 to play all day, $6 to bring your own paint. $15 for all day rental package, plus the first time I went they had $40 cases of paint for sale. $1 per 1000psi for air..you cant beat that.
Predator paintball is a great place for experienced players and beginners, 13 or 43, groups or by yourself. Come out and enjoy a great day of paintball. I know I did and will continue to for a long time.
Predator paintball is good place to go paintballing. There are a few things I didn't like about it though.
-too many kids there. I played with a bunch of ppl from work against some kids there. Some of the ppl on the other team were refs there. Well, there were ppl outside the playing area telling the other team where we were hiding.
-integrity of some of the refs if you play against them. I marked one of them and he kept shooting till he hit me. THEN he walked off.
-teenage refs that yell at the newer players(i dont call them n00bs, that's just a dumb thing to call someone) They will sit there and wait for them to make mistakes just to yell at them. And YES, I heard them saying "watch this dumb4ss." I've also seen them make fun of ppl with rental guns.
-big woods course needs boundry markers
-the owner is SUPER helpful.
-BEST PRICES AROUND
-the ability to BRING YOUR OWN PAINT
-plenty of parking
-picnic tables and covered area
-good variety of fields
While i can't say enough good things about Predator, the childish refs really ruined it for alot of ppl. I wish the owner would get rid of them and get some in there that aren't such elitist spoiled brats.
