I don't understand why people still use scraps like that for a field. It just seems like a liability waiting to happen. The stuff we use is cheap, very light weight, portable, reliable, easy to remove, customizable.

We just limit who plays.

You may want to be careful with that rebar. There's a reason these are mandatory on construction sites.

I think they all look great.

As a suggestion on the pallets aspect and the stands...I have actually started using 2x3 boards instead of 2x4 for many projects because the cost is a little cheaper but it still maintains a very solid frame. And to hold up a pallet you don't need much

because thats all thats around right now. i have used some of that black silt fence stuff but it wasnt too strong. a few balls were getting through here and there.

and talking about liability, that rebar sticking out is dangerous.

The "scraps" are all free. Your stuff is cheap..but their stuff is free.

Most of that stuff is natural..piled pieces of wood found in the area. Thats a perfect field with low impact on the environment :P Except the go cart.

Well, we completed our second season this past sept and the road fabric held up great. Two years of sitting in the elements and we will finally replace it this next year. It was just starting to show some wear to where we wanted to replace them....and the only place where they were wearing down was on the rebar where we attached them. To get them to last, you cant have them super tight. You need to have them absorb the paintballs vs having them break them. That causes extra stress on the fabric.

You might try your local highway construction repair depot's/substations. For instance CalTrans in California or UDOT in Utah.

My friend works for a construction rental company and he picked it up there. I can try and see where they source it out from.
