Default What is your favorite color?

So, when you are looking for a new disc, does color play a factor in your buying decision? Are you an all white guy? Do you think you just blue yourself? Is "chartreuse" really a word? What do you go for?

Bright Pink! I can find them. Bright chartreuse is also good. NO DARK RED.

"Chartreuse" really is a word, and is a color: it's that bright green-yellow that practically glows in dim light.

I voted blue, but here are the caveats: it must be LIGHT blue, I can't see and find dark blue or purplish-blue discs. I "throw pink" during October, Save-the-Ta-Tas month. I also have white, bright orange and yellow in my bag.

As long as it's a bright color that I can find when I throw it, it's good.

Ever disc in my bag is pink. Either by manufacturer or personally dyed. Easy to find and Breast Cancer has hugely impacted my family. The only disc I bag that isn't pink is a single Fossil Flex Scale. Only comes in white and won't take dye.

I voted pink. A real solid/bright/neon pink color is the easiest to find and stands out the brightest against the natural colors of a disc golf course. I love bright colored, easter egg looking discs and that plays a huge factor on my buying decisions. My eyesight gets worse every year so the brighter the better. I typically by discs off of ebay these days so that I can see how bright and opaque the disc is before I buy. Websites like InfiniteDiscs and DiscBaron do a good job of showing the individual disc for sale.

I don't at all understand the OCD need to have a bag full of only one color. My bag is full of different bright colors and I think it gives each one a different identity and so easy to pick out what I'm looking for while I play.

Pink and white. I also have way too many orange. I regret every one of them this time of year.

Super duper thmpsup for Disc Baron. One of the best stores in my area. Not only does Jacob have an AWESOME site with pictures of every disc, he has a wicked brick & mortar and does tooooooons for the local scene. From running leagues and tourneys, to sponsoring events, and even helping to raise funds for a reworking of a local course before Grand Rapids hosts the 2017 World Pro Masters. If only I could get him to stock some Discmania.
