Do you worry about the color when Disc is chosen?
I choose the orange or red recently if I am the same weight. If it is you, is what color Disc chosen though the flight seems to be different according to the color?

Thanks for the explanation Matt, makes even more sense now.
On the pink thing...... im thinking hot pink is pretty sweet for a disc (ive seen some Elite-Z discs in this colour), but not Star plastic pink? Using that same logic, you could say that you should buy a pink bag so you can pick it out from all the other peoples bags at a tourney.....hmmm... lol, just kidding!

I actually have a pink Star Firebird in my (black & grey) bag, but i got it brand new for $5, and that was the only colour the seller had... d'oh!
I have a friend in the club who has his entire bag full of pink right down to the putters. It looks like one of those revo display shots where all the discs are one color. The backups in his car all pink as well. He swears by their visibility. I fill special orders all the time for him. We always joked we'd make him carry the pink bag as soon as someone produced one.

I think Revo is making a dual pack in pink now or has one planned, but that probably takes a little committment to pink than he's willing.
As a condition of choosing Disc
1It chooses by the color.
2It chooses by weight.
3It chooses in the manufacturer.
4It chooses by the material.
5It chooses by the feeling.
6Others
Are there a lot of people who choose by a favorite color though it is thought that there are various ways to choose if the condition of selecting it for myself is suitable?
Though it is thought that the difference certainly goes out to the flight characteristic.

All things being equal I would pick Pink, Its easy to find in all seasons and pretty much all terrain.

The color affecting flight issue really comes down to the environemental conditions at the moment of that run. Lets say its humid on monday when they ran 8 hours worth of Red Bosses. It takes longer for them to cool, and the result is a bigger dome. Dome being bigger makes them more stable than the 8 hours worth of Yellow ones the next day where the humidity was lower and they cooled faster with less dome.

Anyway in the beginning until all the Reds and Yellows sell out and they make subsequent runs of each color, it will seem like all the reds are domey because they are red, when in fact its because they were made that particular day. Its why some models its the pink ones are popular while others its the reds and so on. Whatever the trait you are after, you'll like the disc color run the day the environmental conditions made that happen.

Stupid story...back in the day when U2 was still a rock band I used to buy only red Rocs in honor of the Live at Red Rocks: Under a Blood Red Sky concert film. After a while I used to get confused and throw my beat Roc when I needed to throw my stable Roc because they were all red. Fortunately (or maybe unfortunately) U2 changed their musical style and I was no longer a big enough fan to dedicate my disc color selection to them, and I started buying Rocs in different colors. That was a long time ago, I had actually forgotten all about that until I read this thread.
It is an amusing story.
It is sticking to to buy it while attaching too much importance to to something.
It might be what others do not understand easily.
A red color is called a color when fighting by Japan.

Red. If a disc isn't red in my bag, it's a KC Pro disc that I can't find in red.
