OH! This is the caveat to my "black disc to black cars" statement.

I too throw black putters, but only for close range and in the circle shots. Black putters are the crappy rattle-canned matte black beater cars of the disc world.

Beat black putters are worth their weight in gold. By the time they look grey for all the battle scars, they've earned their place in the wolf pack.

I have a black amp that I've never lost. He is really sweet and not getting lost. Not joking.

Black is second only to green in worst disc colors.

Not to the golfers who play on sandy courses out west or close to beaches. I hear they love green discs.

Pretty much this. I would be very reluctant to throw an all black driver.

Bright green is a godsend in a fairway full of red maple leaves.

I just hate it when you're playing doubles or whatever with some kid whose bag is filled with tye dyes, black discs, or plastic "worth" over $40 per disc. Then proceed to lose them on each and every damn throw and expect you to help find them. There's a reason I prefer colors which contrast with the primary color of the season... white, red and yellow in summer; greens and blues in fall; yellow and blue in winter, and pink any time. Not just for my sake, but the sanity of my cardmates.
I know what you mean about players like that, there's a guy who has all tye dye discs in my local league & he always seems to be my doubles partner I wish random dubs would actually mean random

Putters only. I have two black 2nd run ions I love, but wouldn't dare throw drivers or mids. Pretty much all my discs other than the putters are bright yellow, chartreuse, or orange.
