in the short time i have been going to cru at this time i feel i have been treated real well. The staff is super helpful, easy to get along with and professional too.

The prices are real fair and they are very competitive on the pricing of markers and gear.

i have only played the indoor field at this time which reflects my rating but i have no doubt they more than likely have nice outdoor fields too.

overall i am very glad i found cru as its the most fun i have had playing paintball in a long time.

10 stars and keep it up guys

I've played many fields including CRU and the Staff, the fields, and the pro-shop at CRU are unparalleled. Indoor play year round, 2 outdoor speedball fields, a big hyperball field, and a huge woodsball (Scenario) field. Its an all new environment since CRU took over the field. The staff greets you as you walk though the door, always somebody to help. Redd goes the extra mile as the head referee and there is always a PTI trained C5 master certified airsmith on staff. Still cheap paint, although it is field paint only, It's not dimpled up crap like at some fields. They have almost everything in stock from Ego 10's to SLG's, and they even have a Woodsball Department, Stocked with BT's and Tippmanns galore. If you haven't been in the last couple of months, you should DEFINITELY check it out!

Multiple Fields for various types of play.... and even a heated indoor field for winter play. The Pro Store has a wide selection of guns ranging from Lux's and Ego 10's to great woodsball and scenario guns like Tipmans and BT's. The customer service is one of a kind making you feel welcome the second you step into the door. This field has every thing you would want a field to offer, great guns, great service, snacks and drinks, multiple clothing lines, and a overwhelming amount of parts and accessories. 5 Stars right across the board.

My team and I took time off and when we returned we went to CRU. They treated us very well and went above and beyond to make sure we had a good time. I had a gun issue and there air smiths made sure what was wrong and ordered the parts on the spot. The Indoor is kept very clean and the tournament we played there was reffed fairly and very well. I would recommend this to any player of any experience. Can't wait to see this place in the summer. As always safety is main concern.

Being a college student, and not from Michigan, the paintball scene, to me was a huge unknown. Especially when the winters here are so brutal (cut me some slack, I'm from the south), I thought non-woodsball paintball went into hibernation until the snow melted. When I found out there are some places that had indoor speedball, I was excited and had to try them out. First, I tired Futureball Indoor re-ball. The staff was super friendly, but the only day I went there, the players were younger, and did not have the cleanest of mouths for being between 12-15 years old. Granted, I'm 21, and language isn't a big thing to me but, it doesn't add to the experience or environment. The second field I tried was Killer Paintball. Again, the staff was super nice, the players were well mannered, but the playing facilities were not clean, and made playing similar to ice skating, now I've heard they have cleaned their turf, but I have yet to be there.

Your probably asking yourself why is this in the CRU paintball review? Well, I wanted you, the reader, to understand my experiences with similar facilities, so you can have a more accurate understanding of my review.

CRU paintball is a wonderful place. My first visit, I went there alone, they were running a super bowl Sunday event, which was a great deal, too bad I was the only one to show up, but they insisted on giving me coupons for discounts the next time I play. They also insisted on me staying for awhile, to chat and eat some free hot dogs that were part of that day's special. I never felt they were a penny less than genuinely sincere in their actions. They wanted to provide a good time, great facilities, and a friendly environment. I can confidently say they exceeded my expectations, in all three areas. One of the owners had his wife and little kids at the proshop, there was no need to shield them from vulgar language, or questionable people. They displayed respect to everyone regardless of age or abilities.

The next time I went out to CRU, the experience was exactly the same, plus the addition of some competition in their indoor airball field. The field was clean, and well taken care of. Another big plus was that to refill HPA, a 4500psi station was within staging area. The field is a little small for a game bigger than 5 vs 5. but I'll trade smaller field for almost perfect conditions any day.

I'm excited to visit them again, and outdoor speedball cannot come soon enough, but there is no doubt in my mind that I would strongly recommend CRU paintball to any player of any ability. If your interest is woodsball/scenario or speedball, you'll be able to find it at CRU Paintball all the while showing you and your group respect and pride in their work.

***Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with CRU, other than being the occasional player.

with concerns with their reffing, of the four times I've been there, I have had no problems or complaints.

CRU Paintball is a newer field working hard to be a top field in Michigan and eventually the nation. Tons of big plans for an indoor complex and additional outdoor fields for both X-ball and 7-man as well as woodsball.

The new management which came in for 2009 (CRU), has quickly worked to get brand new PSP 09 airball bunkers (which were available outdoors as of September), upgrades to the woodsball fields (still ongoing but lots already done), and cleanup and safety work on the indoor (complete as of October).

They have already held rookie and open class tournaments for speedball as well as multiple scenario games... all successfully with many great comments by the players involved.

I expect big things from this field in the future, as great management plus a great player base can mean nothing but a good future.
