25 March 2010 - 04:54 PMI definitely agree with you. I mean most experienced players are pretty responsible, and so will know if their goggles need to be repaired, but younger or newer players may not realize the dangers, espceially walk-ons. I mean, it's bad enough for anyone to have their goggles fall off and take a shot to the face, but if some 13 year old kid at a birthday party takes one, that's sad, and also dangerous accident that could have been prevented by such a safety check. Refs could do it before the player leaves the chrono, and they could then give a sticker or something signifying their marker and mask both pass. It's something field owners should definitely consider.

One thing you'll want to check is the field that your going to play at will let you bring your own paint. Some fields (most in my area) are field paint only. They usually do that to prevent things such as monsterballs or frozen paint. So before you stockpile a lot of paint, make sure you can use it.
As for your goggles, one of my friends has the vantages, and he is very satisfied with them. They provide good protection, and in my opinion look pretty cool. But then again I like ACU camo so take that as you may lol
A good source for info before you make any purchases is pbreview.com. They have reviews written by actual players on all different things, even fields. So it's definately a good idea to check that out to see what people think about their gear before you buy the same stuff. it may save you some money

17 March 2010 - 12:58 PMI had my tank on the marker (don't know why when I have a remote line) and I was sweating a lot. I reached up to wipe my forehead off after a game, and I reached up with the arm I was carrying my marker with. I tripped over a root, and smacked the tank right into my face. Nice huge goose egg on my forehead and a concussion. Moral of the story is, use remote air.
Thankfully that's been my worst injury.
