yea,ill just move somewhere else??I dont use the hydra because it floats,i use it because its a straight flying grippy mid-range/putter

Wow, people actually use Hydras? I live near a course with a lake in play, and have only seen two of those ever, now they got a R-pro version, Great... Try a wax pencil, or just move somewhere with out so many shady players. Second thought, Floatys on a Roc, LOL.

Try Marks-A-Lot.
Around here the squids can remove sharpie from some discs, but not Marks-A-Lot.

I plan to get some r-pro Aviars so I'm curious for when you figure out how to mark em.

Then again, I'm getting them just for putt and approach (already have Star for driving) so I guess I don't have to worry about losing them so much.

Try scotch brite or sand paper on the area first

Call Innova, tell them about it. They should know if they haven't figure it out already. You have to be able to mark your disc for sanctioned events and what else could do it if a sharpie won't.

take a little acetone, rub it into an area, it will barely etch the plastic enough to produce a dull area. You should be able to write in that area. I have done it on the r-pro aviar and dart. The Hydra does seem a little different then the other r-pro disc though so I am not sure if it will work for ya.

i have a dragon ......... it too floats in water ......... perhaps because of the type of plastic it's composed of .. it too doesn't take a sharpie well .......... hope u can hang on to it
