I was thinking about buying this item:

http://www.flashflight.com/holeinone/index.shtml

I was wondering if anyone has used their products or maybe has a better solution for not losing discs after the sun goes down. We have some night rounds in my area that I'd love to play in, but I want to be prepared.

Suggestions/links would be great for those of you who have tried some solutions for this common problem.

just go out and buy bobber lights...I haven't used the one's you suggested and I don't know if their weight/size is going to affect your disc's flight...bobber lights can be taped to the disc with electric or duct tape and have no affect on flight.

if this is the one that u have to punch a hole in your disc, dont buy it. we had a few guys use them and they would pop out after a while. the best product we have found is little led lights and small batteries taped to either the bottom or top of a disc. we use a see thru duct tape. we havent lost a disc yet.

Batteries: I recommend ExtremeGlow.com from Tupelo, MS. Great
prices. Not sure what shipping would be for you. Remember you need
2032's.
Thill lights for fishing bobbers available at WalMart and clear duct tape at Lowes all i use
maybe I am old school but I prefer a nice UV(LED) flashlight and charging glow discs. The newer powerful LED flashlight charges the Champion CFR glow discs to perfection.

If it is twilight rounds......the same UV light works great to light up regular bright yellow,greens, orange discs as well. You can find these flashlights on ebay for $10-20......apparently they are good for hunting scorpions as well!
Compensate for the added weight with lighter discs? Tape to the bottom or the top? I'm guessing that taping to the bottom wouldn't pay off too well most of the time (hopefully).

I don't think you could get me to poke holes in my discs. Not even for night golf!
Hunting scorpions? Perfect, now I have two uses for this torch.... wonder who gets to test the torch whilst scorpion hunting!

There are two types of the "Pod" lights that can be attached to your disc. Type one you have to put holes through your discs (X-outs are great for this) but they are bright as hell and can be seen from literally 3/4 of a mile. The second one is attached to the bottom of your disc via a sticky pad on the pod (still bright). The only negative is these both weight about 6 grams which is a lot when talking flight the second is the sticky model has trouble with moisture and burns out very quickly. Other than that the "Thill" brand bobber lights are awsome "IF" you can find them in stock in a store otherwise you can get them from Cabala's online for $3.50. These are well under a gram and are also SUPER bright.

I still have to say that nothing beats the sight of a glow bracelet turning your disc into a flying saucer of light.
i recon this is the best thing this is what we use and they work perfect.
Also one of the golfers here designed this light system that screws into the top of the basket and lights up the basket only it is really cool!

I have used the Nite Lites and they work great... use two or more and you don't have to worry about losing a disc.. I also got the BlackJack LED discs (all 3- driver, mid and putter)... they are awsome in the dark, you don't have to worry about losing those... BUT... they are not great flying discs... they do OK but I think I will stick with the Nite Lites and use "my" discs... I also used the "AreoPod", the one your screw on... it works pretty good but makes you disc more stable...

On a side note the BlackJacks plastic is really nice.... kind of gummy...

For the baskets... check GlowProducts.com , they have 12inch glow stick for $1.04 each (10 min.)
noticed the search function works pretty well:winky:
try "night golf"
much as I love playin it (gotta game tonite even), can't bring myself to type about it again
I have used these and they work really well. I have even seen a buddy throw one into the lake and it stayed on!! As for changing the flight characteristics I really didn't see a difference. They weigh about 10 grams so if you put it on a disc that weighs 10 g less than what you normally throw I think you will see that it flies the same. A couple of caveats are, make sure that when you punch the hole its not too wide bc they will fall off and sometimes they will turn off when you hit a tree or something. You can fix the turning off part by some simple modifications, there's a "spring" that makes contact when you "click" it on; just make sure that there's a good and snug connection. The one thing I like about these is that you can modify ANY disc (but champion plastic works best) you want to bc when it comes to glo disc, there are just a few different models to choose from. Good luck and keep throwing!!
