The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Super-bright LEDs are great but I find that taping these to a coin cell is problematic. Also it makes the disc under-stable. I would like to see a if anyone out there has found any innovation worth trying.

Buy them online and get a case. Sell them to your friends. Do you have Walmart on the west coast? They can have some sent to that store just for you at no cost. Just because they don't stock them doesn't mean they cannot get them for you.

WE tried a ton of different ideas on glow golf and found the most effective/easiest/effects the disc the least is the LED and Coin battery. With something that only weighs less than 2g it really doesn't effect the disc. The only time it seemed to effect the disc was if the coin battery was not centered on the disc properly.

I hear the THILL bobber lights work great but good luck finding some in a local store (at least on the west coast) I've looked in 3 states and haven't found a store yet that has any in stock.

I use this. http://www.sunkingdiscs.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=1635

It weighs under 1 gram and doesnt seem to change the flight much. I just place it on the top center or bottom center and I use clear package tape.

Clear duct tape and bobber lights work great. The clear duct tape works much better than packaging tape

Go to Walmart in the fishing section and get some Rod & Bobs LED bobber lights. The light and battery screw together and are about the size of a small glow stick. They are super bright especially when taped to the bottom of a Z or Champ plastic disc. These hold up very well.

I know that you can buy led lights from blackjax that attach to discs... the only real problem with those are the fact that you have to put small screw holes through the disc for the support system... they will not come off and work really well... if you don't mind putting holes in a disc... (I used 2 discs that I never use during normal game play) I think the batt life is like 20 hours... and the batt is easy to replace... not a bad deal given the disc sacrifice...

I learned that from you guys...but can be messy.

Yesterday I was "spiking the marley" for set changes on a 'Off Broadway' show...when it dawned on me to get some of the glow version of this tape...for night golf. It would work incredibly well...no doubt!!! No mess!!! One roll would likely last a lifetime.

If your interested search Stage or Theatrical Supplies.

I have some discs made by fly-by-nite that you slip a glow stick into the rim. They work great, glow bright, and glow all night long.
