Dying Glow Discs

I have seen some shots of dark colors over glow discs (glow z, glow champ, etc) and it appears to completely hide the glow through black, for example.

Does anyone have any experience with lighter colors (perhaps yellow or pink) on glow? Will it glow through at all?

I have not done it personally, but have seen some done, and the answer is yes. You can dye a glow such that it will glow through the dye if you just don't go super dark.

I believe Bennett (I hope im right about that) did an Okthrowberfest 2013 disc of Jason that was on a glow disc where you could see the glow through various dyed sections of the disc.

I dyed a friend's Glow Champ Firebird fuchsia (I left it in the pot for a long time so it was quite dark for fuchsia), and it glowed but not as bright.

If you have a dying glow disc, is there a dye that can revive it?

don't think so. even if there was i would not use unless it was better than the original glow. i play multiple rounds of glow/week and use glow tape exclusively. it sucks if you play a lot of tourneys as it is more pricey than other tape, but it works better then glow discs. so just dye them, then use tape!!

happy throwing.

Isn't there dye for fishing lures that glows?

Some here did a bulk order of Rit's "neon" colors, I want to say around the time they changed their formula, but I'm not sure exactly.

This picture is from several months after being dyed. It was a full submersion.
