If you look at my recent post all of those disc have been thrown before. You can dye them just don't expect them to look new afterwards.

I think the main reason you are not advised to dye old, beat-up discs is because nicks and gouges on the discs are potential spots for bleeds. If the top of the disc isn't chewed, dye away.

I've dyed used Pro plastic and had zero bleed issues. Even with the original stamp mega scratched up, it was okay... using vinyl and magic cover. Discraft ESP deep stamp impressions have never caused problems for me either. Do however, keep image perimeters away from impact gouges.

so i would spend an extra $15 and have a even nicer disc

You can clean up that old disc to look like new. Go thru the same steps as you would to dye a new disc. Let it sit for a day or so and let the dye set good then take some car wax and wax buff the disc. I have some discs that are several years old and still look like new. I hit them with the wax again when they start looking bad.

I agree that you can dye an old disc with great results. Just clean them good before and you are good to go.
