Saw in the tensor thread that someone noticed their yellow tensor to be a lot less OS than their other colors. For me, the bright yellow tensor lacked the beef that I anticipated. I ordered an orange to compare. Similar findings?

Not sure about different run colors but can say my 166g and 172g are for sure cows.

Hot pink and orange are flying pretty OS for me so far. Does the yellow seem to be missing some hss, or lss?

Everything to do with PLH and nose height. See profile pix in Tensor thread. I only have 300 feet or so of power right now. I will have my buddy throwing those Tensors (along with Zone) today as he got 450 feet or so of power. That yellow one I have is slightly less HSS than the orange and white ones.

Although COLOR itself (may or may not) impact the flight it is one way to identify a run of molds which maybe were subject to different conditions when pressed, cooled, stored etc and changed their PLH or bead/where the over-mold sits slightly.. Yes, these factors impact the flight but identifying them by color/run is a common DG theme across all molds and companies.

Sure, its not just the yellow color but could have been something to do with the yellow runs, freak disc etc.. ZJ is poking the sweet spot though being many testers also have initially found slight stability differences in colors or plastics.

i understand that if 10 yellow discs get shipped to a retailer, they might fly similar to each other. but the yellow disc i buy across the country a month later shares nothing in common with those.

could be true-- might be from the same run.. you would have no way to tell outside of color that is my only point. We agree on this not saying anyone is wrong just stating why so many people $#!t bricks about color(specially on this forum).
