How the hell did they do this? I've tried to dye kc plastic before but not with results anywhere close to this. http://www.marshallstreetdiscgolf.com/proddetail.asp?prod=aviar%5Fkcpro%5Fhukdye

All pro plastic dyes. It just fades away into a blurry mess fairly quickly.

What method have you been trying? I've done well on pro w/ both the RIT + acetone paint on & RIT + boiling water & float it (water is cooled down of course).

Still fades like a mofo. I dyed a KC Roc a deep shade of royal blue and after about 2 months it is lovingly refered to as "periwinkle."

Eh, even a badly faded custom dye, is MUCH cooler than a plain disc. :D

Pro plastic is a bit variable in my experience, I've had pretty good luck.

I always read KC pro was not worth the effort of dying, that it would only take colors lightly. Never tried it though
