I wont buy dark blue either, too often they go missing in almost any conditions. Sometimes you get lucky with the translucent champion ones but why take a risk? Orange flies further anyway...
Some people just seem to be attracted to them. Metal heads and musicians from my own observations
Everything Mark said. You might as well be throwing a green tie-dye disc! Which I did once. And lost it on the first throw! Florescent colors don't necessarily floresce for me, so I like to throw baby blue.You are just asking to lose your disc. I hate it when someone looks at me and says, "Well, I guess we need to start a clock on your lost disc".
I don't even like to throw a yellow disc because it is not easy enough to find. Hot pink, red, orange, bright blue and bright green are the colors I prefer.
For years I drove with X-Clones. The best X-Clones ever made (most overstable) were a dull silver. I spent so many hours of my life looking for those discs. I pray I never find another truly great disc that only comes in a bad color.
We know that some shots have the miraculous ability to bury themselves, leaving only a tiny sliver to be seen. I have found those tiny slivers before in a florescent color which would not have been found in black.
When you throw that black roller and it rolls from sight and you are looking and looking for it, let me ask you this: How do you know it didn't go 500 feet?
