Marilyn on a Groove
Played my first tournament on New Year's day and ended up with a used disc as a consolation prize. Rookie player and dyer.
Scuffs definitely show up and affect the dying.
Other than the scuffs she's ok.
A lot of great dyes getting posted. Very inspirational.

Like the Marilyn jja, you have successfully turned that Groove into something another rookie might be suckered into trading a real disc for .

I've got one that I found, in really good shape. I've got lots of ideas for it, I just need to make a decision.

I'd never trade for one, but it'll always have a slot in my bag, sidearm thrower though.

Didn't need or want another driver but it was the most dyeable disc in the pile. Have not thrown it enough to have an opinion of it. At minimum it was good for more dye-practice.

I guess the people who hate 'em really hate 'em. I've never thrown one and shouldn't jump on the bandwagon.

Won plastic is the best plastic and I do like the dye job, nice detail, nice stencil, Marilyn's such a babe!

What disc/plastic are you trying to dye on?
This is the ratio of dye/h2o recommended on the rit page. I have always used this ratio with no problems.
