Default Disc Colors

What happened to the Discraft colors over the past couple years? It seems like everything was a ****ty Easter colored pastel for a while.. Was this to save money, or did Discraft legitimately think these were good colors?

It seems like they're coming out with bright colors again, but I'm still struggling to find any ESP plastic in DayGlo yellow (which used to be pretty abundant).

I've always thought Discraft did a good job of putting out consistently bright colored discs. Especially in Z where I've had a hard time finding Innova Champion discs with colorful flight plates. I'm all about the Easter pastel colors too. Super bright and vibrant against the dull greens and browns of a disc golf course.

I think they've been fiddling most with their Z blends, for which I have noticed those Easter colors and a kind of pearly color.

For ESP I'm less familiar. I'm newer so maybe I didn't know their older stuff, but I like their ESP in general even if maybe not as bright as you're hoping for.

I don't get some of the greens and grey/browns they have done but the blues and oranges I quite liked.

Discraft has definitely improved its colors. Bright, easy to find instead of (lame) pastels...
