I will buy 30-40 cases at a time and sometimes it takes longer to get rid of.

That review wasn't too supportive. Bounces, poor accuracy, and a 60fps jump in velocity! Ouch.
Hmmm, 60FPS jump certainly sounds like an increase in efficiency is there but, on the other hand, it will slow down more rapidly.

It looks like Vapor Balls were really, Vapor ware... That is, unless they took the information down to re-work it.

That's a given since, that's what Hydrotec is claiming, and it would be the most likely reason why they are more efficient and, why they will slow down faster.

That price was set by the field. Check your info man.

I think it's much more likely that PistolPete didn't account for the HydroTec paint being a much bigger bore size than most paint out there right now. The weight may play a part, sure, but velocity swings like that should be expected if you're going from .680 and below to a stated .686. Since he's using an open bolt gun, maybe he didn't notice.

60FPS Velocity things are one thing, a 60FPS jump in velocity switching from one paint to another, is another thing. I took +60FPS as a single jump caused by going from regular PBs to Hydrotec. That being said, I haven't seen the video yet (no YouTube in the office).

Probably already mentioned but a longer shelf life would help out people buying paint from shops that don't sell a lot of paint. No longer would you have to worry about that dusty case of paint you had to buy at the last minute Saturday morning.

Regardless of quality of the prototype this is a huge innovation. This is the only paintball currently on the market (soon to be) that is waterproof other than the FSR.

Hey guys, the paint did curve for me. But keep in mind I don't barrel match my paint, and I just ran it through my TPX without changing anything except for the velocity. My friend was shooting it out of his Tac One and didnt notice any curving.

Now I put some in the side of my door for a couple of days, and it was fine. But I went back to my car to get my pod out, and there were broken balls in the pod, and the balls started to warp to the point where they looked kinda like MnMs. The pod was sitting in a sun spot in my car, and it was 85 degrees outside. Not a single barrel break or chop all day though on saturday.

Hopefully i can help answer other questions if you guys have them.
