Epik paintball-better than you think

Epik paintball is located on East Colonial Drive, Orlando, FL.

www.epikpaintball.com

while the summer heat is killer, epik is still great from about 9am-1pm...after that, most of the bunkers are neglected and get a little saggy after a while...

here's a nice video courtesy of yours truly...it's epik's field minus like 3-4 deflated props

Can't download the vid (on slow as hell dial-up)

Did they improve the field in the last couple of months because everytime I have been there it was a complete ****hole. Had teammates cut the hell out of themselves sliding into props, from debris or badly set-up props with the stakes not all the way in. Then the props were not maintained well, IE no air, missing straps, ect.

The team was most unimpressed with the field the 3 times we went. Just wondering if it has been improved or not.

definatley improved, but get there early becuase after 1-2 when it gets hot and the mostly good teams leave, they start to get careless about filling the bunkers back up.

As it gets hotter, shouldn't they get overinflated not underinflated though.

Have they improved the ground though. Is there debris free grass? I haven't been in a few months and don't want to drag the team up there if the fields are still ****.

I would say that Hypersports is the best field if you are looking for tourney type of playing, although if they redid Epik it might be a lot better than it was. 6 months ago and I would say it was about equal with OP for the worst airball fields.

Check out www.hypersportspark.com

It used to be a golf course so the grass ground are in excellent shape. They right now have a field layed out exactly like the 2005 World Cup Divisional X-ball field, so you can practice on the same layout. The prices are very good, a very well stocked proshop. Jason, the owner is very knowlegable on gun tech, and he is very honest. You can trust him, he is not out to screw over the players to make a quick buck.
