Nothing new!! All of my old CE Leopards that were purple are now clear from sitting in the sun.

What a bunch of a$$ hats. It would one thing if this was the first run of plastic, not mold, that they ever did but they should have their act together by now.

I like legacy as much as the next guy but they arent the model of consistency either. Not to mention their own little problem with dye. Like, it was rubbing off onto other discs and peoples hands... New discs lol. Anyway.

Suckss for OP but put your pitchforks down people. If you wanna hate, dont buy their stuff, easy.

If I know anything about CE plastic and how people treat those discs, yes. He bought it brand-new shrink wrapped, then promptly pulled it out of the bag and let it sit in the sun for a few hours until most of the purple faded out.

I've had my D1 and D4 sit in the sun for more than 2 hours and never had any issues with them fading. Must be the color of this one?

I really don't care it faded just wanted to make people aware. I think it kinda looks cooler now.

If he posts a pic with the disc faded, but with a bright pink handprint, then we're on to something.

I think the mids will be available in "acid washed" colors.

Think of it as a product feature - you could mask off an area of a new disc in your favorite shape, leave it in the sun for a few hours, and voila - custom "dye" job without the mess!

I have a champ coyote that I let my dog play with that looks that way. Took more than 2 hours, but champ-type discs all seem to fade eventually.
