So I just tried to throw a round at night, and only made it through a few holes. I had glow stick taped onto my disc but it kept coming off once the athletic tape got wet because of the snow. Is there a tape that wont fall off in the snow? Or am I going to just have to find some glow in the dark discs?

just use all Rocs or putters and be accurate! Usually the moonlight at night off the snow would be plenty as long as the snow isnt so soft it eats the disc...
Try using Duck Tape and install it and let it set for a few hours in the warmth (or use a hair dryer) before venturing outside. When you eventually want to take off the tape and remove the residue, I have found that a product called Goof Off works great. Staying on will not be the problem, removing it will be.

There are tiny little LED lights which some folks call Bobber lights (originally used for fishing) that are reusable and turn on and off. Probably someone can give you a link to finding them. These are a superior item to the big, single-use glow sticks they make for Halloween.

The small light is called beacon,they turn off and on,I just bought a couple,they are about 5 dollars a piece.They work well taped under the bottom of z or champ plastic.They only weigh 1 or 2 grams,if that,disc golf stores sell them.

Better hope your disc doesnt dive into the snow at all or your screwed no matter what.
i tape 1"wide x 5"long plastic ribbon on top too. many times that ribbon is the only thing showing. playing at night or playing in the snow are a challenge, but you really have to be motivated to play in snow at night.

At night the glow lights shine through the snow and are visible from quite a ways away (like 100 feet or so). The glow lights are visible even if you throw your disc in the pond. The easiest disc to find is at night with a bobber light on. They are much easier to find than a disc in the daylight. They glows under leaves or any thing else I have encountered.
You should look into Black Jax Sports for your nite golf needs.



I really wish Mark would quit endorsing dangerous products on here. When some kid gets that $#!t on him in and is crying like a baby in the emergency room because of the severe chemical burns...or worst yet, gets it in their eyes and is blinded for life. How would you feel if you where responsible for providing that reckless insight to what those chemicals might be able or can do to a plastic disc.
Blackjax don't fly right... The pods add way too much weight to a disc.
One of the best I have seen is the fishing bobber light by THILL called "Nite Brite" The problem is they are super popular here in the North and I've had trouble finding them in stores. Here is the google product search link for those interested.

I got goof off in my eye and I see better now. It smells good too. Works even better on discs ;)
I buy my bobber lights at Wal-Mart in the fishing section. They are extremely visible on Cryztal Z even when they are buried in snow.
endorse - to give public approval of a product for advertising purposes

Mark didn't give any kind of brand name or even a link to buy them. You are the only one endorsing any product here, and you're using a super dramatic, hypothetical situation to do defer the competition from your Black Jax lights. The gas you pump in your car could get in your kids' lunch box and they could open it and drink it all with their capri sun straw, then how do you think shell would feel? probably like any child of yours didn't have much of a chance anyway...
