Low Impact Paintball is for Everyone!
Well, maybe not everyone. We have actually had some tournament players tell us that the low impact paintball with 50 caliber paintballs doesn’t leave bloody welts on you – so they didn’t want to use them. We scratched our heads and said, “Ok. Sorry. Probably better if you play at a different field!”
Let's find out how we make it low impact, and why that is perfect for you!
Low Impact Paintball starts with the Paintball Itself.
A smaller paintball has less mass.
With less mass there is less energy when you get hit. Would you rather get hit by a boulder or a pebble? Have your car hit by a semi truck or a bicycle? The same rule of physics applies in low impact paintball. All things being equal – a lighter paintball has less energy.
But there is more to it than just a smaller paintball!
How are the paintball stored?
Paintballs don't like hear or cold.
For a true low impact experience – the paintballs have to be maintained in specific temperature ranges. Our paintballs are custom made and arrive in heated and air conditioned trucks to assure a low impact experience for our customers.
What are you wearing?
Long pants and long sleeve shirts are a good idea!!
Is this just for kids? No! Adults love it too!
What else makes it low impact?
How close were you when you got shot?
If you get shot at point blank range – it will sting more!
This also helps players realize who they should shoot at. Just like dodge ball, the enemy is on the other side of the field and cannot come on your side. This additionally helps eliminate “Friendly Fire”.
How fast is the paintball flying?
Our paintball guns are Chronographed to a consistent speed.
By chronographine our gear we assure that our paintballs are not flying too fast. If people bring in all their own guns to play, you really never know how they are tuned, and if a gun is turned way up it can increase the sting. That’s why we just use our guns, and test their speed often to assure a consistent low impact paintball experience.
Put it all together and a low impact paintball experience means less mess, less sting, and more fun!
