Of the Discraft plastics the photon glow is far and away the best. However, I think it's only available in the Challenger mold - but I am not sure. The Z plastic glow is not bad. The ESP glow is hit and miss IMHO. I have a glow Undertaker that's passible and a glow ESP Thrasher that doesn't glow at all.

I'm curious what others experiences with the photon glow is to other brands. It glows great, is rock hard and I hate how it feels for putting.

Has anybody tried the Eclipse plastic from MVP/Axiom? I saw they just came out with a set of Eclipse discs that had the glow stuff on the flight plate instead of the overmold.
i saw someone use it with a black light pretty standard to me in brightness and duration of glow its def not a gamechanger glow in any terms

The axiom glow is nowhere near as bright as the glow rim on MVP discs. The glow ring on MVP is almost as bright as the Vibram glows.

My blue crowned eagle MD3 was super bright. Nightstrike and Dark Maul were good too. KC pro glow rocs, conrad aviars not nearly as bright. Sexton firebirds were in the middle. Discmania seems to have it down from my samples.

Glow tape makes sense, plus maybe a stack of DX mids so I don't worry about losing them.

Gateway Super Glow is the brightest that I know of (in production).

If you're a Buzzz thrower, my best glow in my bag right now are 2017's second run of the Doss's Tour Series Z Buzzz (Only the white, aqua, yellow, and green of that run were glowers I think.) They charge up slower, but retain a really strong glow. https://www.sunkingdiscs.com/discraf...-series-2.html

Nothing beats LEDs on translucent plastic, though. I've a dedicated bag of dayglow green discs for the season (that color fluoresces the brightest under uv light, just in case the LED gets knocked off.)

I did not read anyone else's posts above, so perhaps this has been said, but my experience is that Kastaplast glow is awesome, as is Gateway Super Glow. I have not found any other glow discs to be anywhere near as bright or long lasting (glow) as these brands. My Vibrams are not nearly as good.

Anyone have success with Swirl ESP Glo? Got a Vulture in it, disc is great but the glow aspect is pretty pathetic. No problems with Z Glo.

Stability wise, is Trilogy less stable in moonshine? The XXX, River, and Saint Pro I've thrown in moonshine were all noticeable less stable.
