Default Are you a color snob?

I am curious how many of us are picky about disc color, and to what extent.

I only bag colorful discs, primarily orange, red, pink, blue, sometimes purple and yellow.

Don't care much for green, white, black, grey, or dyed discs for that matter.

Cheers.

Over the years I have become one, life's too short to spend it looking for a turd colored disc in the woods, give me pinks, blues, whites, something that stands out.

Doesn't look like manufactures agree though, what with the recent line of swirly clogged toilet colors on the market.

Need colorful discs, because I'm throwing in the junk.

I ALWAYS bag bright colors because they are the easiest to find. Hot pink is by far my favorite, but I also have a lot of flouro yellow, orange etc.

I would never buy a disc in an earth tone, grey or black. It’s as good as gone.

Some of these swirly discs are awful.... Green mixed with brown (seen some prodigy like this)?? Worse than dyed discs, IMO.

Yes. Not sure why but I have an almost monochromatic bag. All red. I have a few Pink and Orange that break it up here and there but would replace those with red discs if I could find same plastic and beat it into the same state. I am not generally an organized person or have any hint of OCD but my discs are in very specific order even if I am swapping in and out of my bag for testing or new course or bagging backups to condition them. Speed class OS -> US So putters, mids, Fairways, DistanceStar
With that and always putting them back where they belong I haven't grabbed the wrong disc when i'm using my full bag.
If I could I would bag everything Red sparkle/metal flake but too many of the molds I throw its not available or too popular to find them... or the plastic is wrong

When I started and was trying all kinds of discs and color didn't matter I found out how hard to find dark colors and tie dye are or super clear... I don't go near those any more.

I have several I like; Pink, Blue, Orange and White are usually ITB. I’ve got some purple in there now but usually just for putters. Sometimes I’ll do Metallic as well, Used to like black, but I’ve grown out of that phase.

If I have a choice I'll go for pinks, chartreuses, oranges, or light blues. Rocs are about domes more than colors. Wizards are always white because I have stocked up on a specific plastic when it was only offered in white. That's not one I worry about losing though.
