I needed my flx drone and they only made them in white (except about two blue ones ever) and that makes them unusable in kalamazoo winters. Not anymore.

Pathetic? Maybe...
Worth it? DEFINITELY!!!!!

Hey, it looks visible now for snow use. Next time just use a little contact paper instead of tape to mask it off and it will look even better! The back looks perfect for a used disc.
how could you tell i used tape mike? haha jk. contact paper noted.

Can I ask what and how you guys are actually using to 'dye' the disc?

I've done a few myself.....

These last two guys seem to really have nice deep color...

Your products and method suggestion would be grealty appreciated!

that was the first time ive ever done it! i asked Blaze how he did his today when we were playing so i followed his guidence! just buy rit dye in fowder form, fill a pan with enough water to submerge the disc, heat the water on the stove to medium-high heat and then ad the dye and stir it up. then put the discs in there making sure they are all the way under so they dye evenly. i kept pulling mine out and rinsing them under warm water and then putting them back in the dye untill i liked the color. the lighter one i only washed off and dyed agian once, the darker one i did like 5 or 6 times and let it sit in the sye longer. when your done you just rince them off with warm water and the cold water to set the dye.
thanks jason, i was pretty impressed with how deep the color came out too. the only difference between the way josh and i dyed them was i only took out my disc at the end which was 4 minutes after putting it in the water. after 2 rounds now the disc still looks like it came that color (instead of the stamp part of course). and since the gloss is still there i'm pretty sure the plastic wasn't melted at all since gloss would be the first thing to be able to notice if it did i think.

Ive been reading and doing research for over a month now on how every body else was putting dye on plastic, there are a couple of great videos in the video area of this site, and some good articles on DiscGolfReview.com. I use sign vinyl to mask off and a a good swivel knife to do my cuts. Using a light table to do your tracing is always a good idea and saves time. I use RIT dye in a gallon of water with a cup of Acetone thrown in. Here is are my first and second try, I haven't had time to do another round of dye jobs but I will post when I do.


cheap old contact paper can save all those runs. (Not to brag) but check out my dyes on my page. Simple process. A little time and patience and you can do anything. I have allot of my disc on Discaroo as well for trade or sell. I am not a business or trying to make money and become rich. I just love the sport and this is another part of the sport for me. I use the same Rit dye (no acetone), same water, same heat source, a light table (for tracing) and an exacto (hobby knife to cut out mine. I will put a couple here just to give an idea.
