It varies with each team. Best thing is to call UXP and find out what practices are happening when. Look forward to seeing you out there.

High, yes, rip off? Wouldn't call it that. Supposedly it's a special blend for UXP ( can neither confirm or deny it). You will always pay more for paint at a field, even more so for a field that is FPO.

That's why you just buy a case for 75... or 80?
It's a business they can't charge retail price and expect to make money.

Do you know anything? That's NOT retail price, dealers get crappy fate for about $25 a case. They make a lot of money!

Electric bill, rent for the place, employees, taxes, maintenance, insurance, office supply's, rental gear, advertising, the list goes on forever.

The people they target most likely don't shoot a case in a day, most likely a couple hundred balls at most. Bachelor partys, birthday partys, company outings and so forth.

Aside from that, I thought there was a day for tourney play where it was like $60 a case, is that gone?

It works in some area for some people! You should check into them more though, if I remember right they do have some form of a team night when paint prices are cheaper at least they use to.

Do you understand that the only thing uxp makes money on is paintballs? Thats how most fields are that are FPO. Uxp has to deal with paying employees,electric,water,gas,not to mention all the promotions they do trying to help the sport. And yes the paint they use/sell is specially made for uxp.
I remember back when paint was 75-100 at some indoor fields. I am more then happy to pay what uxp asks for paint!

If they didn't use special paint then it might not cost the players as much but it will cost the company more money to clean up the field (have people stay over night to work) I am speaking from experience. I have had to stay and work 24 hour shifts before to clean the field because some person decided to bring their own paint. Every hour worked on cleaning the field is more money out of the company. They are doing everything in their power to help support the local paintball scene and to make their customers happy.

And yes they do have a team night on Monday where a case of paint is $45.00 along with free entry and air i believe. (call to double check, 801-352-7700) People usually start showing up at 6:00

Well said. I've been around the sport for over 18 years now. Their prices are not outrageous. Especially when you consider that entry includes all day air. $60 per case is not bad at all. And the paint is better than a lot of fields I've played at.

I haven't been playing for no 18 years, geesh 😳 lol, but I have a few years under my belt and those prices aren't the cheapest I've seen but they are very reasonable for sure. It costs more money to have a nice field.
