Thanks, kid, for starting this deep subject! You actually uncovered some believers.
Thought you were leaving...

At any rate, im not here to argue. I said that the other variables you listed were certainly more key factors than colorant, why so snide?


All this hoopla over something that supposedly isnt noticeable. Although these are some of the same people that want certain weights to throw, because a 8g difference is noticeable flight wise for them, :/

I think what makes this urban legend persist is that a number of companies often issue their first runs of a certain mold in a few colors. One of the colors used tends to produce a more desirable disc, not because of the pigment, but because of the conditions in the factory on the day they were made. The color, and everything going into making it that color, being so visible is given credit for something it likely has no effect on.

You guys are all dumb. Everyone knows red is more stable, green is understable , and pink flies the farthest. Argument over.

ALL OTHER FACTORS BEING EQUAL
Red discs will be more stable and durable due to the iron oxide in the dye

Why science,laws of physics, common sense, chemistry are seen as an urban myth is beyond me
yellow and white are at the opposite end of the spectrum
Why does everyone get so mad about this?
I will gladly take all your red plastic thank you very much

The New England Journal of Flying Plastic Thingies published a study that proves yellow discs fly downhill better than any other color. It's science man, you can't argue with it.

I will second this. I have many old red dx discs to prove this to be true.

I'll take your old red Rocs, Aviars and XDs.

So that's my problem. i only throw yellow and white discs....they keep turning over on me, without OAT. I need to change them all to Red discs so i can have more stability i guess. :sarcasm alert

This is awesome, I love people who think this makes a noticable difference. I am quite a superstitious person (hence the all yellow drivers, and white mids/putters) but to say a color flies different is absurd.

I can tell a difference in weights, they do fly differently, same with types of plastics. But color is hilarious. This reminds me of all the stupid crap that my fellow guitarists believe to be true about what affects their tone.
