I can't fucking stand to olay soccer on a damn turf field. After playing on grass for 11 years, i've gotten used to the way the ball reacts to the playing surface. Turf is a whole new kind of shit to learn. I have to re-learn the way the ball bounces and rolls. Not to mention that the ball doesn't go as far because turf is abrasive. And don't get me started on trying to strike the ball on turf. You almost have to re-learn the mechanics of striking the ball to get a decent hit on turf. And I can't wear my grass shoes. I pay a whole $225 for a nice pair of grass shoes that will only break/ tear my ACL on turf. So now I have to buy yet another pair of shoes that are going to put a $170 dent in my wallet. And the damn stuff gets hot as all hell. I live in Florida and summer temperatures are consistently above 90F. So the turf is easily 110F. And gosh forbid you fall on the turf (it happens a lot in soccer, whether it be legit or acting) you get cuts from the damn stuff. Not to mention the "grass" harbors so many different kinds of bacteria. Kids get MRSA all the time from being cut by turf.

I cant stand that crap.

I can be a bit of a smartass and even an a-hole. Please bear with me.

That is defined as a tournament paintball players life sir. You clearly don't play competitive paintball that's for sure. We travel all over the place,we spend more cash on our gear alone more than you do. To each his own though....

Already have three pair. I've been playing indoor for two years now, weekly. The surface isn't hard to get used to at all.

The quality of the materials used is huge. Go and feel the leather of a Nike Tiempo Mystic, then feel the leather of a Tiempo Legend. HUGE quality jump.

I was going to get MyID Tiempos but I wanted a pair that match my goalkeepers jersey, and lime green isn't an option, however it is a stock color way.

They are custom made. Someone has to step aside and put then together after the order had been placed.

You aint seen shit till you play D Line on turf in New England.
Wet turf freezes. It gets hard, most fields have CEMENT under the "Padded" turf.
When it is raining earlier in the day and you play a night game in late November the temps dip down into the high 20s,
You are wearing nothing but pads and a jersey.
You then spend 44 Minutes trying to drag people down into said frozen icy turf while tearing up your arms legs and bleeding everywhere.
All the while going from Heat Exhaustion to Hypothermia.

Just re learn how to kick a damn ball and stop complaining foot fairy!

Astro turf sucks, The transition from regular fields to turf for me was easy for me. Just need to figure out how fast the ball moves and you're set.

This is how I was feeling when I wrote my angry response. Honestly playing Football on a frozen turf field was the worst experience of my life I still have scars from that game.
