  • From Paul Ciesiun, formerly of Hydrotec

    September 26, 2012  |  News  |  No Comments

    Paul released this letter Friday on his Facebook page: 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.

    X3 Tech Tips Series, #1: The REAL Purpose of the Barrel

    September 23, 2012  |  News  |  No Comments

    The purpose of a paintball gun barrel may not be what you think it is. Sure the barrel is there to direct the paintball to the intended target, but let’s be honest—almost any barrel can do that. The real purpose of the paintball gun barrel is to provide the necessary time and space to get your paintball traveling from ZERO feet per second, to 300 fps. If you’re shooting a ten inch barrel that means the ball has to travel around 45,000 fps to get to 300 fps by the time the ball leaves the barrel (give or take a few thousand fps).
