First off I am not really sure on if I would recomend this field to just anyone....perhaps a more experienced player such as myself "probably". I would definately not recomend this field to a newer player especially not a first time player.

I thought the price for this field was decent......i paid 65$ for a case of paint,and play and air all day.......which is a very good deal. I honestly didnt notice what their rental guns were as most of the people there had their own equipment.

They do not (at least not while i was there) do crono checks.........yea they have chronographs there but no one actually insures every player is shooting at their 300 fps. There is a rule that states something to the effect that if anyone gets caught shooting 300-309fps sits out for a half hour.310-320fps sits out an hour......over 320fps are out for the day. (I might be off on numbers slightly) I was there all day and never seen anyone challenged at all and I know a few were shooting hot.

One of the refs we had seemed to know and do his job well........the others pretty much just started the game and stood around until the game was over.

They did do an adequate job of checking air bottles for proper hydro dates and pressure regs.

After we had finished the day I overheard some people complaining to a ref about a group of people that were cheating (and they were ....the two games I played with them in).....and these people were told that the cheaters were regulars.......

The fields were decent not the best i been around but certainly not the worst
either, perhaps they were just having an off day when I was there I will go back at least one more time this year and hopefully I will find that is the case


************************************************** ***********
I spent this weekend at badlandz scenario event and had a great time..........THEY did a MUCH better job at tracking chrono ...........and even chrono'ed many times right on the field during the event.........and frankly caught QUITE A FEW shooting hot........Kudo's to the refs and the management for addressing some issues they had. I seen no one cheating (yea it probably happened...but not seen by me and I was looking for it)

Honestly one of the best fields in the Chicagoland area. Loved the different fields to pick from and the prices aren't all that expensive. Also, if you're looking for good competition, this is the place to be. Just didn't like how they categorized the paint. Maybe they had it mixed on accident but no big deal really. Other than that this place is the bomb!

The fields are good for the most part for as long as they been around tho I would think they would do something really cool by now but nothing really to really WOW you but very good. There fort field is probably my favorite one they have. they do keep really current on your speedball fields tho.
The price to get in is very fair.
the refs are pretty good about matching teams up to make it fair games and really look out for the newer players.
Lots of parking and good room to stage.

Played in the MWXL at this field. Run by great people. Aftershock guys did a decent reff job, but I felt like they were understaffed. That's more of an issue for that tournament league though, and not the field itself. Field was great for the most part with good management.

Even though I've only been here once and it was during the winter months and at their indoor speedball field it was a blast. I keep meaning on going to their woods fields but just haven't had the time or money. Their entry price is reasonable and so are the paint prices.
