So, you decided to shop for disc golf discs. You already know what brand, model, mold, and weight you need. But when you walked into your local disc golf store, you saw different colors and were overwhelmed with options.
Wondering about what color to choose? Turns out, a lot of disc golfers share the same opinion when it comes to the best and most appealing color.
We asked our Instagram followers what disc color they liked the most.
Pink is a pretty popular choice. Blue is also up there, followed by purple, orange, and yellow. Really, it varies from person to person and what they're looking for in a disc.
Reasons for their preferences
When it comes to disc golf, everyone has a color preference. Here are some of the most common reasons that people choose specific colors for their discs.
Most of the courses in the states are either wooded or grassy and filled with brush and shrubs. That's why many disc golfers choose pink - it's so visible. It stands out the most and can be found more easily.
Pink is easy to recover in most different types of environments. With pink, you won't have to spend hours searching for a lost disc golf disc.
If you're uncertain about the color you'll pick, you must choose something bright and relatively easy to find.
The colors that are easier to see are:
Some players organize their disc golf bags by color, where a particular color represents every type of disc in a bag. For example, all mid-ranges in blue, all control drivers in pink, and all putters in white.
"Distance drivers to putters and grouped by color. Helps me see visually if anything is missing."
"I organize them by color but my reasoning isn't just because it looks cool, but it really helps when glancing at my bag I can tell if a disc is missing."
3. Personal Preference
When deciding on the color of their disc, some players consider personal preference. Some might prefer a white or even black disc while others might enjoy a multi-colored disc.
If you’re playing in an environment where visibility is an issue and you need to be able to spot your discs, then a bright-colored or glow-in-the-dark design could be for you.
A disc color can be chosen to add variety to a bag. Some players may have at least three discs and some colors to choose from, and some prefer the color they don’t have.
Some disc golfers simply prefer the look of certain colors over others. This can be a matter of personal taste or style preference. Some players also find that certain colors help them focus on the disc better, making it easier to track during flight.
These are the factors that most people will likely consider as they choose their disc color.
In the end, bright colors are what most people choose when they want new disc golf discs.
