Paintball Field Layouts for Huntington Beach NPPL 2008

Nice and early, the NPPL is pleased to release the paintball field layouts for this year's NPPL Huntington Beach event.

To make it easier for teams to walk fields and to reduce the number of field layouts each team will need to practice, the NPPL will be using 3 different layouts at each event. In Huntington Beach, the NPPL field and Angel field will share the same layout, the Spyder field and Chronic field will have the same layout and the JT field and Eclipse field will be sharing a layout as well.

Two new shapes have been added to the NPPL Fields for 2008, the cake and the maya.

Click on the links below to view each Paintball Field Layout (please note, the Pros and Semi Pros will be playing on Center Court and the Spyder field).

The Spyder RS Series

The Spyder RS will run on Co2 similar to other entry level markers, but more efficiently with the Rapid Charge Inline Regulator. Operational at 300 PSI the RS runs at a fairly low working pressure reducing premature paintball breaks from air impacting the surface of a paintball. "SE Technology" or Synergy Engineered Technology products can utilize either Co2 or Compressed Air as a propellant. Manipulation of the air pressure through the Fast Charge Inline Regulator provides the RS with a steady air flow for consistent shot to shot velocity even at extremely high rates of fire.
1) Fast Charge Inline Regulator
2) Vented Pressure Relief On/Off CA Adapter
3) Break Beam Anti-Chop Eye System
4) Twist Lock Clamping Feedneck

What to Look For In Paintballs

If you want to shoot well, make sure your paintballs don't hold you back. A good paintball will be perfectly round, have no visible line between the halves of the shell and be free of dimples or any misshaping. Warped, irregular or dimpled paint will wreak havoc on your accuracy, so to shoot well, you'll probably have to pay for it. If your paint is too brittle it will break in your chamber or the barrel which will ruin your accuracy. Typically, the newer your paintballs, the better they perform.

Beyond accuracy, you want a paintball that will rarely break in your gun but will usually break on your target.In the last few years, many manufacturers have created recipes for high-quality paintballs but if you test a brand of paint and experience a lot of bounces, it may be time to try something new.

As a general rule, the more you spend on paint, the better quality it is, though I have seen cheaper paint that works really well. Ideally, you should experiment with several different brands and find the best paintballs for your budget.

One other thing to keep in mind is that different brands of paint shoot differently in different paintball guns. For example, some guns can shoot practice paint perfectly while others really need some high-end paint if they want to be consistently accurate. Additionally, different batches of paint from the same company sometimes perform differently, so finding the perfect paint can sometimes depend more on chance than anything else.
