Bright pink is all I bag and buy these days. I play a lot of courses by myself and it saves me quite a bit of time and frustration.

One of my cardmates at the tourney this weekend found this. I wonder how it got lost, haha. In a twist of fate it belongs to a buddy of mine.

It happened that my four drivers are in rainbow colors -- orange, yellow, green, blue. They match well colorwise. I'm liking it.

Actually, the orange disc is not more than a backup, I hardy ever need. I must confess, I mainly carry it because it matches so well with the colors. Without the orange disc, my bag would be dull. ;-)

I've been playing for a year. At first I bought random color discs but when I noticed how easily certain colors were to find, I changed my strategy. My favorite disc was the Undertaker and when my pink Pro D got wrecked and my home course is heavily wooded, I wanted to move up to ESP. Unfortunately Discraft only makes drab ESP colors. This spring I bought a hunter orange DX thunderbird as a temporary fix - its been awesome! But once again sure Star and Gstar are more colorful than ESP, but its still not as bright as I prefer. I might have to suck it up and buy champion or Z plastics

current favorite colors: hunter orange, bright pink, baby blue
I agree with those that would rather not spend hours looking for discs or worse, losing the disc.

Colors depend on the season and location you're playing. Orange is great in spring but bad in fall. White is great all year except on snow. Blue is fine but not around (actually in) water. Pink is almost always fine. Black is never, except on the putting green, where it doesn't matter.

Color patterns matter a lot, too. I have a bright green Echostar disc. It's even good enough to spot on grass, because it only has a tiny stamp, leaving all the rest of the disc the same color. Round objects with all the same color are seldom in nature. Discs with brighter colors but in swirly or burst patterns are often more difficult to spot.

Being a color snob is hard. When you walk into a disc golf store filled to the brim of shiny new colorful discs you just want to go overboard and buy them all. Once I get back to reality and realize I only play a handful of molds in select weights my purchasing options becomes vastly simplified. I will say it never feels good to walk out of a shop just because they don't have your exact disc in the correct color, but you get used to it.... Eventually.

All I bag is aqua and bright pink, and half of them are ESP (plenty of aqua blue Undys out there too):

This has come to be one of the reasons I give people for a monochrome bag. It helps me curb spending. I started saying it as a joke but it has become a bit of reality.

Is it max weight? ... type plastic? and Red? No, no, no? ill pass.

If I could start over from the time I started building the monochorm I would probably have done day glow but is ok. Red is still good except some places in the fall and at dusk. When I know I'll be pushing the end of daylight I will carry a couple of glow discs just in case.
