My local field has a spike in the airball setup and we can hardly ever put it up because it is to windy in kansas. Every once in a while we are lucky enough to be able to do it and sometimes we just lay the spike down. Any ideas on how to keep it up?

Fill the bottom with sand or Rocks or something heavy? Kinda like those old inflatable punchingbags for kids? Just put a lot of weight in the bottom.

It doesnt have a special compartment for that. Would it be a bad idea to put it through the valve hole?

Let out a little bit of air then put the sandbags on the.... Flab? That is left on the bottom should hold them up with help from the spiked?

If you have a dead bunker, you might be able to cut part of the bunker up and fill that with sand and then use rubber glue to glue it to the bottom of the spike. Don't know if that would actually work or not though.

That doesnt seem like it would really help because ziploc bags are small

sorry i couldnt help it.
but use rocks or bags of sand. we use buckets full of rocks to keep our above ground pool ladder up. something like that could work if you put it over the the rope or somthing

Bacause you have to point your gun at the sky whenever you reload. Just like you have to press your back flat against any kind of cover you may be using, and you have to lift your mask whenever you have something important to say, even if you are under fire from the other team.

Sheesh, what kind of paintball have you been playing?
