That is a shame because that dye was pretty amazing.

Just recently had to trade a disc to get back my favorite and first dye. Guy was bragging about his round, pulled out my disc (name and number still on it) and spun it on his finger.

I lost it the day after a torrential downpour when the creek was about 10 feet deep and moving fast. Apparently some teenagers found it a week later (they were standing by us when the guy told me this) and sold it to the person who was bragging. I'm glad my buddy was there, I was speechless pretty much. These same kids also claimed to call people when they find discs, yet didn't call me. Only got the disc back because I have pics of it in the middle of my dye process on my phone.

Worst part is not it has someones name (not mine) in sharpie huge 5 inch letters on the bottom of the flight plate. And they won't come off with acetone.

Worst part

Yep. Had to leave behind a banana yellow star katana with a FLCL stamp. Still waiting to see it pop up again in someone's bag...

That design is so slick it's ridiculous! I'm sad to hear it's no longer with you. I see ink on it...I'd be surprised if it isn't returned to you at some point.

Was it original artwork?

I didnt make the dye obviously but it appears to be a dr. Seuss kind of thing.

I have 6 dyed discs now, and I throw them. I've lost some discs in water, but use gridding processes in search and rescue, so its hard for a disc to escape me on land.

More than I care to admit. Including the disc in my avatar. Threw that one in a river a week after I dyed it. The river was frozen out to about 10 feet from the shore. Sucked because you could see it sitting right in the middle. Just didn't want to freeze my butt off getting it out. Of course I never got a call on it.

I've lost a few and have concluded that no one will call you if they find your dyed disc. The chance of a call gets even less likely based on the awesomeness of the dye.
