Lightbulb Coregated Pipe

Was simply wondering how well do the Coregated pipe fields handle wear and tear, and would using it for a second field (other than the one airball field I have) work?

As long as you set it up so your players aren't constanly jumping on top of them, they will last for many, many years.

Most of the field owners around here love 'em. They are a low maintenance field for your rec-ballers. No need to keep them inflated, No need to stake them down every time you re-arrange (most field owners don't change their layouts unless they move the field. Most of our rec-ballers love it just because we keep it on the large size somewhere around 7man-10man standards. It usually helps our field convert them over from the woods over to airball. Most players whine that it is too close on the 5man fields so we put them in the woods, move them over to the corregated pipe (aka Poop tube field), then we can coerce (sp?) them over to airball field. Plus instead of paint bouncing all over the place, if you are parking is next to your fields, the paint mostly breaks on the bunkers.

If they're die hard woodsballers as you claim, you might not get their business, but if they're reasonable people who just happen to really enjoy woodsball, you might.

I usually see people using rebar or metal fenceposts, then lash the piping to them, or if you're using the whole pipe just pierce the piping somewhere and impale it.

I've never met a diehard woodsballer I guess. They all appreciate some bunkers in the woods where required. Even most of our trees here on the coast of BC, aren't big enough to use as bunkers. Maybe if you played in an Old Growth forest (which they wouldn't let you anyway).
