Brightest color for old plastic?

I've got a couple old OLFs with this yellowing plastic. they are getting pretty tough to spot sometimes.

What dye (for solid or simple patterns) will give me the brightest/easiest to spot discs?

Thanks guys.

Bright Pink is usually easiest for me to spot. Light blues are pretty visible usually too.

Unless you can't stand the color just go with pink. Around here at least there's nothing on a course you can throw into where pink blends in. I agree that blue is also good, but not if you are in water.

Side note, you have an awesome avatar pic

Definitely this.

Most of my bag is pink (any disc I can get in pink, is).



Fun story though - I thought the same until last spring I managed to lose one in a pink flowering bush. Only one I've seen like it on a course...definitely caught me off guard.

Bright red or orange is a good contrast to green grass and foliage too.

True, but when the foliage is not green you'll be kicking yourself (and leaves) for dyeing your disc red or orange.

True, true. Hence the opposing colors for the seasonal changes. 2 sets. I have too many discs...

Yeah. Sorry. I get that pink and chartreuse are the easiest to see.

I meant specifically what dye to buy. I have a few old Millennium discs that need some help.

And yes, sad kitty is awesome.

This is blue and yellow, they are pretty bright (and it was on a whitish clear disc). Quick coat worm dye. Goes on easy, dries instantly, and no need to mix it's premade.
