Pretty sure there is a field in SD that has the arena thing like that. In my opinion NPPL has all their gear to set up field. So until it goes bad, or the actually cost of switching becomes cheaper than what they are using now then they'll stick with the old way.

They are actually taller than you think. And paintball fly over nets all the time. Bouncing off bunkers and coming over the nets isn't uncommon. But it's not like a ball is being fired directly over the net and hitting someone at full velocity.
