Don't think Pauls ever made a Hydro shifter. You might be thinking of SAFE and their 'Hydra-shift' from back in the mid 90s, then Red 5 in the mid noughties or Acros just recently. Shimano also have a version in the wings (patented in 2006) although it looks like their electric shifting will render that obsolete.

Actually, I think the ACROS system is actually the same thing as Red 5 (or 5 ROT) - they purchased the design etc from him. They're exactly the same.

Yup, exactly the same. 5-rot had no money to develop or market it.

Here's the Acros/5-rot system:

..the Shimano system:

The SAFE system is old but looked a lot like this:
