Orange US
Reds very understable

That way I could look at the color and know the stability without even knowing what the disc was as it followed the light spectrum.

This lasted about 1 order until I could not find the disc I wanted in the correct color...

Now if everyone would just start making more white discs, one could do this by dying their own. I am way too far in to do this now though.

A store near me just put a bunch of yellow discs on sale because yellow doesn't sell very well... at least not to their clientele.
Various molds in premium yellow plastic for $10. Same molds, different colors: not on sale.
SuperColor Buzzzes with wild looking stamps, on sale too.

I prefer whites and dayglow green as I'm colorblind but I have a red and a pink in the bag as well though the red is real beep for me to find on shady fairways

I don't care too much but I am certainly attracted to some colors.

I'd like to see this poll conducted for stamps. I definitely gravitate toward unique or cool stamps. I'm sure Westside has sold innumerable discs on this factor alone. I definitely gravitate toward unique stamps, especially on discs that I keep multiple copies of.

Start a thread with a stamp poll, then.

I bet this is why some discs do not sell in specific plastic, The Big Z Roach is one that if people buy they take the stamp and wipe it off and is a turn off to others. The Big Z Comet with the meatball looking ice ball on it is another. Same would be said for the current Star Destroyer and Star Roadrunner if it were not for the pro signatures on the molds they would have a hard time selling even though I do like the Road Runner. The one I do not like is the Rat from 2017 as the stamp is a like a rabies carrying Rat and Bullfrog can be bad in the right sparkle stamp to see what you are looking at, though I do like the pun.

I'm colorblind and have a hard time finding yellow, orange, and red discs, so i mostly stick to blue. Unfortunately, now it's become a thing so I almost exclusively bag blue discs which makes finding the right disc harder. Maybe I should sprinkle in some pink and purple to be less monochromatic and appear less anal.

You don't organize by speed?
