Just dye it fluorescent and bring a UV light to search for it after you throw? Yeah, good luck with that. That'll work about as well as throwing a regular disc and then searching for it with a regular flashlight.

I really dislike it when people do this at our glow weekly. They're response is, "I know where it's going." Eventually they're the ones that need help finding there disc, or are not sure if they're furthest out for the next throw. Also, most of us like to watch the flight of the disc, so LEDs are my favorite, with a dedicated "glow" bag so you don't need to re-learn their flights due to slight changes in LED positioning.

I will say that finding a fluorescent disc with a UV light is so much easier than finding a disc with a normal flashlight. This just happened at our weekly last night. They were looking through a bush for 10 minutes with a normal light and couldn't find it. Literally 2 seconds with a UV light and the disc was found.

Huh. People do that? Crazy.

I can see how it would be easier to find once you are in the vicinity. I just meant that since you can't see it at all while it's flying you are kind of screwed the first time you hit a tree and then don't hear anything afterwards.

As far as being able to watch a disc in flight, that is one reason I like glow discs BETTER than LEDs. With LEDs, there are certain angles where you cannot see the light at all due to the rim of the disc getting in the way. So you'll see it, and then it starts fading and vanishes and you have to hope you pick it up when it hits the ground.
