I didn't see these two listed one way or the other, so I'll put em in:

Innova DX = almost total failure and not worth wasting your time.

Innova EchoStar = the best plastic I've tried so far. Held the color vibrantly and hasn't faded 1 bit after 2 months of almost daily use. (yes, better than a normal Star plastic)

My buddy gave me a BlackJack AXE to dye the Green Lantern Logo on. It feels different than any other disc I've held; like it's part silicone or something. Any ideas on how it might work?

Nevermind that. I tried to apply the masking, and it wouldn't even stick to the disc, so I gave up on it.

my personal favorite to dye has got to be ion medium, gold line or opto in lat64, but I think I've seen some grip line dyed well, makes me think all the lat64 plastics might be dyeable.. anyone had any bad luck with the lat stuff?

Grip line and zero line fade very quickly. I dyed zero with grey. Looked really good. But has faded so much now you can barely see it. Dyed grip line with black, it dyed well, still looks good but has blurred a lot.

good to know, all I ever see is the initial result, not the long term.
