I think Vibram has been doing a much better job as of late making discs in colors that are findable. I have an older Ridge that is literally puke in color. Near impossible to find as it literally blends in with everything. The toughest part about Vibram is that they typically do not have the same shine on them that Campion or Z plastic has. This is really the issue if you ask me, not the color itself.

Are you referring to their matte-like finish (as compared to the relative reflectivity and sheen of Champ/Z/Opto plastics?

I can see that being a factor, but I also think anything that breaks up the the solid color of a disc can act to camouflage it in a great many situations. Most Vibrams look sweet, and while they aren't quite as bad as tie-dyes, nothing beats solid colors for visibility.

Im about to turn my soft ridge to solid black, just for putts so i should still find it . Im doing it since the white sucks in dirt a lot and gets a bad look, black is also a good UV blocker so should increase the lifespan of the rubber.

But the question is how should i cover the vibram logo? I have a feeling that a film would bleed the color so im thinking like some silicone that i could peel off after it has dryed and dyed.

Not an expert but, I have read of people masking off areas with rubber cement. Keeps dye out and peels off when done.

Rubber cement might stick to the disc, it being rubber and all.

Elmer's glue works too, but it takes a fairly long time to dry completely.
