I really don’t mind if it looks cool athough, like everybody, I don’t like looking for discs so I bag mainly bright with a few dyes

Bright discs are preferred and blue is my favorite color. Not super picky though TBH. So,color snob no. Color Glow addict, YES!

Played with a fella who threw only yellow. With some yellow/green...

Only thing worse is crystal clear. I will always help a comrade look for a disc that goes in shrubs and whatnot, but... come on.

I suppose it depends on your eyes, but most yellows are tougher to find than greens.

Dayglo is great. Some yellows are vibrant enough to pop out, but plain old Champ/Z yellow plan sucks in leafy stuff in dappled sunlight.

My faves:
Hot pink
Dayglo yellow
Bright orange
Light blue

My home course is half prairie holes and I will only throw those colors this time of year. I do have a couple bright purple in my bag right now as well.

I really like white for slow discs in base plastic. The drivers have more diversity.

when browsing a shop or vendor boxes i am drawn to and fondle random hot pink discs. two molds i throw got their starts as semi random buys with a nice hot pink triggering an impulse. otherwise exactly bogey’s color list in the bag.

(noting to myself i should explore a replacement for a trusty old red star firebird i rotate in for certain courses and conditions.. flat red and red in general sucks)

Light blue is a mistake in the translucent Z/Champion types of plastic. I had a Champion Valkyrie in this color and when playing courses that get more rain or have non straw grass I found it hard to find the disc in green grass. That Dayglo yellow/green is one of the best in translucent plastic outside the non swirly/marbled pink discs.

Red can work if you have the bright reds that are more to the raspberry/almost pink side and not the dark reds and basic reds that are more commonly found. Dark red is a really bad choice as the disc can look like some types of dirt/mud.

I don't even know what to answer, I usually consider color snobbing a bit stupid. Not dumb but in reality, many discs only fly perfect in some runs and sometimes, even colors.

If you need a certain stability or dome, but instead chooses colour, you're doing yourself a disservice.

Maybe I'm just sensitive and lucky white almost always mold up nice.
