Thanks, I'll need to check out the orange in person and see how it looks. I'm partly color-blind -- red/green deficient -- so orange or red discs tend to look brownish and blend in with natural stuff like grass and dirt. :?
You might really love the fluorescent yellow. It pretty much lights up even in the evening when there is little light because of the 'dayglow' effect.

Yeah, I have yellow now and it's cool how it does that, at least out in the open. The effect goes away if the disc lands in a dark place like a bush or fern, though. With that in mind I have to remember to put my UV flashlight in my bag since it lights up this plastic in the same way, and I think it might make it easier to find in twilight and maybe even during the day.

I'm definitely getting a UV flashlight for my bag. Otherwise I probably couldn't find the Ice Blues even on the fairway. =)

Been using one of my soft ice blues for driving and putting for the last two days, haven't had any trouble finding them in the woods or out in the open. What a beautiful shade of blue, there's no other disc out there that looks like it. Walking up to the basket after everyone in my group has made their approach and I can tell which is mine right away; it stands out pretty nice. Beautiful disc, and I love the stamp, I've had lots of people ask me "What disc is that?".
I would like your X-Wasps, please.

@cmrichar: How the hell did you manage to get them here this fast? I wasn't expecting them for at least a week!

For my hand these are the grippiest IONs I've felt yet, slightly better than the opaque re-tooled ones. Can't wait to throw them!

I'm as shocked as you are, believe me. The lady at the post office gave me a funny look after I realized what the package was going to be (had no idea when I went there, I thought it'd be some stuff from Prodiscus).

And I see now that the new IONs have the same new slicker blend of the overmold plastic that the Vector has. Hopefully it's as durable as the older blend, at least it doesn't affect my grip in any way. Probably will reduce the likelihood of disc spinning out of the basket on spin putts.

Am I the only one who hasn't gotten them yet? I did the Goddamn stamp and I'm the last one to get them!

As you can probably tell the excitement of holding these bad boys is getting the better of me. That and too much coffee.

Ha! They do look great. The feel on the other hand, not so great. I got 2 just to have one as part of the DGR series and one to live in the skulboy collection. I'm confused on why the 'disc' is the deepest groove/pit of the stamp though. Was that intentional?

it's an island on the die... not surrounded by metal like most everything else on the stamp. it gets slightly more pressure in stamping.
