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?

I love my Z-Surge which is blue. A lot of the time I just get whatever is sent, and i like having lots of different colours in my bag.
So far Discraft orange or green are my favorite colors
Blue is a favorite color in me.
My recent bag divides into three, and is classified into the red system, the blue system, and the orange system.

I like all different colors. But personally, my favorite is the Innova star-line plastic in white. There is always some other color tint in it to make it look cool.
I seem to have more yellow in my bag than anything else. I think it's more coincidence than anything else. I'd like to have all my disc one color throughout but.. can't afford that quite yet. People say different things about different colors in the plastics.. not sure if that's the case for all runs. I know people are saying different things about the Boss runs though. Some being more stable than others.
favorite disc is red/orange
I only throw tye-dyed or custom dyed disc (they fly further). So when I have to look for a disc, someone always asks what color. My response is always the same. All of them.
Nice post Matt, good call. I've heard about the "colour affecting flight" thing and it sounds logical, but i havent experienced it yet.
i am manly enough I prefer to throw Pink. Its easier to find and here in NC we have a lot of woods and pinestraw on the ground. Pink just stick out. Plus I love the lime neon green. The brighter the better (well easier) to find.
Green is my favorite color. If I have a choice between equal discs, I choose Green.
Neon Yellow , Green , Orange .Because I like to see my disc's fly to be able to tell what I may have done wrong in the way of release and trigger point. Seems im playing a lot in the twilite hours ,these colors help me to see and to locate my shot.
Good Thread

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.
