I know being logical on a MB is tantamount to treason, but it may be a case of a disc's color affecting the drying / curing time, which will affect the disc's eventual shape (as they have to 'cure' out of the mold) and thus the disc's stability.

FWIW, I've had plenty of flippy red discs over the years, and plenty of piggish yellow ones.

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
Can someone explain to me why density of the disc has anything to do with aerodynamic properties? I would think that as long as weight/shape were consistent, density would have no effect on the flight. Air density on the other hand...

If something were more dense it would be difficult to A. Get it rotating at the same rate as something less dense, B. it would for sure not be rotating at speed for the same amout of time, loss of rotation causes fade, sooner loss of rotation means sooner fade. (Theoretically)

Combined with it being a little more difficult to get the rpms up, would make it fly as if it were more OS (also theoretically)

The only red disc in my bag is a 150 flick, it's also the most overstable disc in my bag, thanks to science, I now know why dat be!

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, :/
Not snide, just poking fun at the whole notion. It's a silly topic.

Is the PDGA cool with that?
Love it!!!
