He leaves paint in his car and under water with zero effects. That's pretty damn cool.

When I first heard that they were 98% water, I was somewhat concerned that they may freeze. In terms of weight and fragility, hopefully the Htec Vapor will deliver. Element is the most economical Htec and once these are released I will be picking up some vapor to try.

Pretty good review. Interesting and unique characteristics for certain. I think my local FPO would enjoy these if the pricing in comparable.

That's the way the Free Enterprise system works, doesn't it?

Hydrotech may have MAPs in place, but MAPs don't mean anything once a customer is at the place of business (field). The field can then sell at any price they want, as long as the price is not visible from public property (i.e. sidewalk or road).

What fields end up selling this for is all speculation for now, in my opinion.
Although their plan is slightly more complex than just selling it straight to fields, I see it turning out exactly how you state in the long run (five years).

That review wasn't too supportive. Bounces, poor accuracy, and a 60fps jump in velocity! Ouch.

They might be priced out of the picture, but I could see their formula being huge in Asia and other hot and humid climates.

Not sure what is going to with the marketing and sales end of HydroTec but Vapor paint has been removed from their website.
