I will throw a green disc if it's the right disc at the right time - but it will bug me if I don't have a backup.

If I had my choice, dayglo pink for the whole bag. Searching for discs is by far my least favorite part of this activity. I mean duh, I hate red lights and hangovers too. But seriously, searching for discs sucks. Like rubbing salt in the wound of a crappy shot.

Seriously, does no one look at the first disc that comes out in these colors and makes a decision to stop the run?

All of my discs are color specific

Wraith = Orange
Firebird = Pink
Teebird = Blue
Leopard = Green (will be out of bag soon and free the color up)
MD3 = Red
Mako3 = Yellow (will eventually be out of bag and free up color)
Pig = Purple
Aviar = Purple (Changing this, possibly to green or white)

OCD much?

I avoid clear, pale discs, dirt and grass colored discs and most dyed since they are basically camo.

Black should never be the color of a disc, other than maybe putting putters. Not for me though, they get hot in the sun.
Brown = no thanks, tough to find
Purple is the worst to find that is actually a color
Dark blue is not ideal, light blue is fine
Red is doable but tougher to find if it's darker
Oh and tie dye styles usually = camo, no thanks

Other than that anything is fine for me. Some colors are great in summer but bad in fall, others suck in winter or on dirty/dusty courses, but pop out in grass.

I only bag colorful discs, primarily orange, red, pink, blue, sometimes purple and yellow.
Don't care much for green, white, black, grey, or dyed discs for that matter.
Cheers.
My old eyes need bright colors so that I can find the discs. Light pink, light blue, glow-chartreuse, yellow, bright orange, white, etc. I avoid dark red, dark blue, purple, black (except for putters), brown, earth-tone, burnt orange, etc.

I match only one mold to a color: Pink Panthers. Partly due to the old movies and cartoons, and partially because they have higher PLHs and more stability than other-colored Panthers.

In October I carry all pink discs for "Throw Pink" month. Moral support for the eradication of breast cancer.

I would have to say that I am a color snob. In the early days of ordering discs online I was too often disappointed. I now only order when I can see a pic of the actual disc. To my eye bright/light blue/aqua stands out best in any situation. I have a few white and glow discs in there and tend to go with black or whatever turns me on for the putting putters. My bag is well organized and I have no issues with finding the right disc. People seem to think the monochromatic bag is quite odd. I sometimes consider throwing in another color just to keep people from bringing it up but… screw them.

Same as many others... Pink is my preference, but blue (light especially) is ok. Although I have been know to grab a really nice bright green on occasion (usually regret it later).

Putting putters can be anything.

White, Pink, Purple, bright Yellow and pale Blue.
This has less to do with me liking the color and more about how certain colors mold up.

Of the above colors, I prefer white the most and yellow the least.
