Review: Well we bought the 5 piece set and headed out to play. We all chronoed at 250 to be on the safe side. Everything seemed to be going fine for a couple games, until we noticed the small holes on the side of the bunkers. These holes were most likely caused by whoever was behind the bunker shootting their own bunker. This happens all the time in paintball, and the fact that these bunkers couldn't even take a hit at 250 from point blank during the first day of play, I was very upset. We did everything accroding to the instructions, and even underflated them slightly to be sure we wouldn't run into any incidents. Well that obviously didn't work, so we threw some cheap stickers on the holes since the patches take 12 hours to dry and continued playing. By the end of the day we had about 7 total holes in the bunkers. The weather wasn't hot(which shouldn't be a problem since R2 claims the bunkers are UV resistant). Also, the stakes for the smaller bunkers broke easily. We were using a rubber mallet and still they managed to snap.

Now before you critique this review, everything was done according to the instruction manual, and then some. I e-mailed the compnay about the bunkers and they said to send the broken ones back and they would send out new ones. But I would rather not waste money shipping them back just to get more sub-par products. We are now looking at other companies to get our bunkers from.
Conclusion: Would work if you dont mind shooting at around 200 fps and only use something softer than a rubber mallet to drive the stakes in. But if you inted on using the bunkers over an extended time, not worth the money.

Review: We picked up a 5 piece field consisting of two 6 foot cans, two 4 foot blocks, and a bomb. after about a few hours play we noticed they were sagging down. when we went to check out the bunkers, we noticed small holes in them from the ball somehow puncturing them. it could of been the 90 degree weather, but i dont think the heat should of impacted it that much.
Conclusion: Overall, i wouldn't reccommend these bunkers. They'll get puncture holes in them and your patch kit can only cover so many holes.
