New Field Owner

Hi Guys, as I am posting in the new player forum, I would like to point out that I am not a really new player, however I am a new field owner. What I have set up is an outdoor woodsball field. one of the problems Im having is how to tell who is on whos team. Does anybody have any suggestions for team jerseys and or a supplier that you use for rental jerseys, something I can let my customers use?!?!

Thanks for your guys time!

most fields use arm bands of some sort, you can either get the velcro ones that are nice but typically are a little more expensive or just plain old marking tape which is super cheap but not quite as visible and typically will not last all day, i have found a good compromise to be good old colored duct tape. throw a loop around both arms and that usually does the job

if you really want to go for more visibility id think about pinnies like these

just make sure you dont get a color that will blend in with the field if the other will stand out against it

Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, that makes a firearm better makes a paintball marker worse. They are 2 very different worlds with nothing except a trigger in common

Right on! Thanks for the idea! Those pinnies really aren't that expensive!

yea armbands and tape are a cheaper, viable option. Those pinnes are thin and get caught on things like trees/thorns and will wear out pretty quick.

My home field was using U Line orange duct tape. Loop around the left arm, and you were good to go.


They moved over to velcro arm bands due to the reusable nature of them. Guess it gets expensive to have to re-armband 1/2 the people on site every game.
