Hey guys. I live on a big plot of land and have sort of a field set up but don't want to have to clean up the paint. Does anyone know if there are water balls and how much they cost?

yes, they exist, but they are incredibly expensive. you're better off just hosing down the field if the paint bothers you that much.

1. it's Rap4. they call all their stuff affordable, when most of it is not.
2. Those are probably geared more toward the police/military training crowd, rather than the average paintballer.

Using a gun that's been hardly maintained and tossed from person to person more than a village whore is hardly a fair way to compare the marker.

I can't remember the name but wasn't there a company testing paintballs that were 90% + water? Hydro something.

Thanks for the reccomendation! I looked them up on youtube and a guy did a review of the balls, five months ago before they even came out.

Just adding to all that^^^^

The water balls are geared specifically to law enforcement and military training so they can train in their uniform and not have paint on it. Supposedly they hurt way more then normal paintballs too.

As far as Hydrotec goes, here is a statement from around Sept. 2012

HydroTec fans: for those of you who do not follow Paul Ciesun personally (one of the inventors of this paintball and the heart of Hydrotec) he posted the following on his personal facebook page today. Please read:

Fans, I apologize for the silence on our page, and from HydroTec in general. For those of you who have followed this project, and me personally, I sincerely thank you. For those of you who are not aware, I am one of the inventors, and have been the driving force behind HydroTec for the last 9 years. In 2009, I agreed to be an employee of HydroTec as part of a deal with a local Chicago investor. However I regret to inform all of you that I am no longer an employee of HydroTec. It should also be known that it was not my decision, but was that of my investor.

It is also important to me that you all know and understand, that over the majority of this year, I have had little involvement in the company’s direction. This includes keeping our faithful followers updated and informed regarding the product. Further, I had no knowledge of, nor was I ever informed of any “launch” at Paintball Explosion. This was also the first time I had heard of
an exclusively “indoor” HydroTec formula. My product plan and expectation has always been that HydroTec should be good for both indoor and outdoor play. Further, you should know that Chuck Hendsch is the sole remaining employee of HydroTec. HydroTec’s other employees, (Marketing Manager, Production Coordinator, Project Coordinator, and VP of Technology/Co-Inventor) have moved on from the company.

After nearly a decade of work on this invention, I am confident that in the proper hands and with the proper care, my invention stands to change the industry we all know and love. It is with that in mind that I refocus my efforts to overcome these recent obstacles and continue to pursue what I created. Thus, I have not given up.

Thank you again to all of you who have supported me, my vision, and HydroTec over the last decade.

- Paul Ciesiun

I thought all paint was biodegradable and non-toxin?

I loled

The .68 caliber Water Balls are extremely effective for force-on-force training where you can't leave a paint-mess behind, or can't afford case after case of paint, making them the perfect train-anywhere tools

I never get wipers, blood is hard to wipe off.

I like autocockers and autococker accessories.
