Shot some today but forgot my camera. Got 2 out of 10 shots on target the rest just did some serious erratic whizzing after 50 feet. Saved some for a actual video. I work all weekend so I will get it done.

I still say they need to put flavorings in them, i still want a good tasting paintball


Even if they're not the best at the moment i do hope they get the chance to keep improving. At a time when all manufacturers care about is selling a new gun, it would be nice for more technology to go into the paint we shoot.

Great vids, hope that since this was a beta test using beta paint, they will sort out the air pocket issue and thus increasing the fill and weight of the ball. This has so much potential.

I don't understand Hydrotech's approach. Develop and confirm that you have a good product and once you are sure of your offering, bring it to market.

Beta testing in a manner that will expose to the public to less than stellar results can only hurt in the long run.

Necro/Skeletor,

Some additional dialog might help. Were the Hydrotec balls not breaking as easily as traditional paint? Did all of the Hydrotec impacts feel worse or just that one? I got the impression from Skeletor's shoulder hit that bounces leave less paint than a traditional round. Is this what you found?

I figured it would be hard to fully fill the ball, but damn. That looked like >30% of the ball was empty.

It didn't even occur to me the fill would liquify/settle prior to being shot and therefore have an unsymmetrical center of gravity. It must veer off target like a scud.

Hopefully they can consistently fully fill the balls in production.

I'm actually kind of sad my maximum mass estimations appear correct.

Note to self; Start buying Annihilation. 3.4g average mass! Beautiful!

Link isn't working for me.
