Glow discs for everyday use?

Does anyone use glow discs for everyday play? I just purchased a Evo glow wizard and love the feel of it. I might consider using it for my main putter. I also read that the glow buzzz is a little more stable than the z buzzz. My question is: Do these discs hold up well against everyday use?

Glows can be a bit tricky to find in snow, but as far as durability, they hold up every bit as well as their non-glow plastic counterpart. Oh I mean, no, they're terrible, and you should trade that glow evo wizard to me, so I can keep it safe.

I have several glow discs in my regular bag. The glow discs hold up as well as their counterpart plastic; DX ... as well as other DX, Z as well as other Z, champ as well as other champ, ... etc. I've "heard" that it can cause the glow compound to lose its properties faster using them all the time in daylight but I haven’t found a single discs yet that's has stopped glowing or doesn't seem to glow as brightly as it's backup disc (other than from dirt/scratches). I actually LIKE playing with my glow discs regularly so when I do have a glow round, I'm familiar with a majority of the discs I'm throwing because I use them frequently.

As far as stability ... I know innova had more over stable champ glow (based on higher PHL, most likely cooling different than normal champ) discs that their standard champ ... but I've heard they are getting better at flying like the normal disc in their later runs. Discraft, I haven't seen this to be "typical" like it was with innova for a while. I had glo Z buzzzs that were less stable than my regular Z or my BS buzzzs.

I dont think this will ever leave my hands. I just love how it feels. Does the Evo glow wizard feel the same as a regular Evo Wizard?

I love the feel of champ glow plastic. It's got good flex and is nice and durable. If I would find all the discs I throw in Champ Glow, that's all I would throw.

Dye helps in the winter.

Just picked up an x out glow champ fb new for 8 bucks at pias. Its just as beefy as the 11x fb I just sold, and for 20+ mph headwind, I'm pulling this thing out for any shots from 200-300 ft.

I have 5 glow out of 10 anodes that I use regularly for practice and play and a glow buzzz that just sits around looking sexy bc no one does glow night golf around here.
