Comments/Conculsions:I like this field more than Rocky Creek
paintball. Rocky Creek has horrible service, etc, but better
fields. I think that First Strike needs another concept field to
be better than Rocky Creek in the field area, but their
management is much nicer and knowledgable. I've only played
there once, but ALL of my friends thatplay believe that
RockyCreek's refs aren't as good, owner isn't as nice, and
overall everything is worse than First Strike's. Oh, that's what
I believe too.

Wink Tallahassee PB Center

Name : Tallahassee Paintball Center

Web : http://www.tpcpaintball.com/main.html

Cost : Free

Field Paint Only!
The FP is alright, some cheap stuff. Doesn't break much. I smuggled some marballizers in tho
500 = 20$
Air = 4$ all day

Fields-
1. Rec Field
A nice field, plenty big enough, with some cool bunkers.

2. Air Field
Sweet! This field is pretty cool. Soft sand, great for superman-slides.

Comments -

This was my first time at a field in Tallahasse because I just moved up here, and I had a very good time. I went with some friends, played all day, and only payed about 50$. Like i said, I like the courses, and the people are friendly enough. All sorts of players, from High end Cockers to Bushmasters to Tippmanns and Fishy's. No "Hey you're gun sucks" people, the high end users were actually very friendly. Overall, a good experience. This oughta be fun enough to keep me from outlaw for a while. (just a while)

Usually if no one's there, one of the techs at the place will pull out a gun and play with ya. Out of 10, I give this field a 9 because there aren't always people out there.

Telephone Number: N/A

Website: Somewhere...out there. (I'll update this)

Registration Fee: $15 Field Fee

Rental Equiptment Fee: N/A (Crappiest Equipment Ever)

Fill Stations: N2 (Never Full) / Co2 (Never working)

Fields Paint Available/ Fee: "Tourney Paint" (Worse than Asp)

Comments/Conculsions: Not the best field, the guy that runs it, Chris, runs the VHA proshop too (Wouldn't go there either). He'll sometimes tell a player on the phone that there are a bunch of guys out there, but when you go 40 minutes out from Greenville to play, no one's there...at all. I've been there twice and that was only for the "Badlands Big Games" which aren't to bad. There the only ones around Greenville pretty much.

Business Name: VHA Counter-Strike

Location: Old Cotton Mill, Greer, South Carolina

Telephone Number: N/A

Website: http://www.vhabadlands.com

Registration Fee: $10 Field Fee

Rental Equiptment Fee: $5 (Alright gun, Co2, hopper)

Fill Stations: N2 (3000psi Tank) / C02

Fields Paint Available/ Fee: Random=$70 For a Case

Styles of Play Available: Speedball

Comments/Conculsions: Better than it's father-field "Badlands" The guy that's in charge of Counter-Strike runs the place smoothly. Although they have only one field, it can hold a 7vs.7, which is alright. It's good for parties and the like. The people that own the field though forget to replace the shot out lights, so the fields dark a lot of times. Good mix of bunkers, but they have only cleaned the field once in the past 2 years and they don't always air up the bunkers.Gets a 6 outa 10.

Pevs@AG

Business Name: Pevs@AG Paintball Games

Location: Leesburg, VA

Telephone Number: (703) 771-3965

Website: www.pevs.com or www.agpaintballgames.com

Registration Fee:Field fee is $15 or $12 for preferred customers (with the keychain)

Rental Equiptment Fee:

- 1-19 Players - $35
- 20-39 Players - $30
- 40+ Players - $25

Fill Stations: N2 and CO2 available...prices range from $3-5 a fill depending on size of container.

Fields Paint Available/ Fee:</b> (Field paint only for rental guns at $65 a case) BYOP for everyone else with other top brands for sale as well.

Styles of Play Available: Speedball, Sup Air and Woodsball.

Comments/Conculsions:

The Pevs@AG field is the premier field in NVA. That being said they do have a few negatives...They have the 2nd best parking (VAGames is better) of all NoVA's three fields and they also have the distinction of being the trickiest to get to. They're accessible from Rt. 15 in Leesburg, Sycolin Road in Ashburn or Route 7. Go to their website for directions. The Pevs field is the most expensive to play, either as a rental or if you have your own Equipment. Those negatives aside, I really enjoy the variety of their fields.

They have some great speedball fields, a slick Sup Air Field and the woods fields are large, and well designed. The nice thing is that they continue to improve from what was in woodbridge. Their parking lot is being filled with gravel this spring to take care of the mud. They're adding a castle to Winter Woods and redoing the village and compound, with the compound getting a much needed bridge. The fields are spacious and it's not overly crowded playing 30 on 30. I personally enjoy the Rock Garden field that greets you as you drive in. The sandbags are a nice touch...better than the stacked cordwood at Hogback and VAGames.

The staff at Pevs is much more professional than the other VA fields (with Skyline a close second). They cater well to large groups and the employees are easy to deal with at one of their stores or on the phone. They have a covered staging area with brand new picnic tables and lights. The pro shop is decent, I've seen better, but hell it's damn nice compared to the other two fields. You can pay by cash or Credit Card here. The facility is indoors and has a TV for mom and dad to relax while the kids play. They have a nice grill, BBQ area for food at lunch time and two refill areas (for N2 and CO2), which are both covered.

They require rentals to buy field paint, which is also the most costly of the fields. They also require barrel condoms as opposed to barrel plugs. The games are well organized for walk-ons or for groups. (We took 50 people from my office out there with no snags whatsoever.) My strongest dislike for Pevs and the one thing I *REALLY* wish they'd change is their policy for groups...where you only get 3 hours with rental equipment. I find it an extreme rip-off to have people have to pay an extra $15 to have a group play all day usually on top of the highest field paint prices and group prices.

Some of the younger refs aren't as good and the games have a tendency to suffer, but this is true anywhere. The teams tend to have a run of the Sup Air and Speedball fields which can be intimidating to walk-ons who want to play up there. Way too many egos.

The popularity of the new Pevs field has filled the place on many days and they have been getting close to running out of rentals for walk-ons, on occasion. This is the most expensive field, but they can get away with it since they pack the place every Sat or Sunday. Many of the Pevs Store personnel also work the fields on the weekends. Todd from the Fairfax store is a regular out there and is a top notch guy to deal with.

For younger players with limited income, Pevs can get pricey, well over $20-25 a day with your own equipment. Well over $55-60 if you're renting. The proshop has good eq to sell and if your equipment breaks, they can fix some problems on site. They get started at 9 on the money and end at noon. Break for lunch and start again and go from 1-4 every Saturday and Sunday. The guys that work there are pretty good about keeping egos in check and about booting unsafe people. (I saw 2 kids a few weeks back booted for opening up full auto on a guy that was out.)

The employees are a pleasure to talk to and cooperative. Hogback had guys that were OK but they had an ego problem. VAGames also had some helpful employees as well, but just not to the level of Pevs. Pevs also has something that the other fields don't...room to grow. It seems like they're always opening up new fields or planning new things for the fields that are already there. With as many people as they get, they have the $$ to continue to do so well into the future. They also make concerted efforts to maintain the existing fields.

Though they're pricey, they're by far the best. It also helps that they have 7 or 8 local stores with employees who know the game and can help you with what you need.

Comments/Conculsions:

Hogback Mountain is the furthest of the 3 fields from the DC or Fairfax Area. It's located off of Route 15 just before Leesburg. It's not well marked (though the road you turn off on is Hogback Mountain Road...) and unless you're looking for it, it would be easy to get lost. After a 2 mile drive through the estate you finally get to the field. Parking was a bit tight but not to bad. The price for players with their own equipment was $10 and rentals were $30. This is slightly more from the $25 that VAGames charged for rentals but less than Pevs $35. Payment was Cash only, which is kind of a downer and not fun for those of us who like to pay with Plastic. The fields were probably the nicest woods fields of the ones I played in Northern VA. Some of the terrain blew and the stacked wood didn't add much to the game. I mean...geez...they should go blow $100 at Home Depot and buy some plywood and build cheap bunkers. The walk up the mountain to the fields was a bit of endurance and the fields though awesome for woodsball were depressing for speedball but better than other locales.

The refs there weren't particularly good, but I've seen worse. (See also VAGames). The place as a whole didn't do a good job letting people know when games were starting and they need to get more organized. The games were quite good and there's some real talent that plays there. I'd go back, if only for that reason. I've heard their scenario games are great due to the interesting fields, hopefully those games are more organized. I didn't like the fact that they only take walk-ons on Sundays...and the Sunday I went the first time it was a hopperball weekend...that didn't seem smart. Check It Paintball in Chantilly (and Fairfax) has more info on Hogback. Their field paint prices weren't too unreasonable. (I recommend Check-It for getting paint...they're the cheapest in Northern VA...I go to the store in Chantilly for my cases). The field can be reached from the Metro area in any one of a number of ways...Route 50 to Route 15, Route 7 (or the Toll Road) to Route 15, etc. If I were to compare Hogback to Pevs old field, Hogback would be the top dog...but the new Pevs field at AGPaintball is just ahead of Hogback. The fact that Hogback is backed by a solid store like Check-It helps a lot too. They regularly attract a large crowd and is a great escape for some great games. There's no proshop so you're on your own if something breaks. The picnic tables are a nice touch and let you work on your marker as time permits. Parking is muddy and tight...get there early. All in all, pretty decent but without the variety of Pevs.
