      I don't know I just couldn't get offended by someone calling me a boner; it just makes me laugh.

            Relations?! Do you live in amish country or something?

              Colors do effect the stability of the disc because of the rate of cooling and how much dome or flatness occurs because of such.. The farther you throw the more apparent this becomes.. thread drift is so entertaining.}

                Stepping in with a third on the color indicating differences in the flight of discs (both innova and at least old discraft X plastic). I'm not sure anyone can say with certainty that it is in fact the color that causes the difference or that the manufacturers tend to run batches of the same color/stamp at the same time and are affected by the same conditions during molding.

                If the color/rate of cooling was the reason, wouldn't you expect close (but not identical) colors to fly near the same? - I don't find this to always be the case IME

                  I'm normally a dedicated skeptic of bogeymen, but I think that the color-flight relationship may have merit, and for precisely the reason Yoduh pointed out, and possibly more. Differently-colored pellets that are used to add hues to the plastic are not made from the same chemicals and will behave differently in the blend. I think the most likely result of this is varying cooling rates, but I wouldn't be surprised if some led to a more porous/denser product, a softer/stiffer product, etc.

                  I did some studying of the molecular makeup of different dyes, and you wouldn't believe the variances in structure, functional groups, and reactivities. I am sure that the chemicals used to dye plastic during injection are similar in their differences, leading to unpredictable results.

                  edit: One of these days the manufacturers will be able to afford to build a damn climate controlled 'clean room' for manufacturing, in order to minimize as many environmental variables as possible. Right after Dunipace finishes paying off his yacht, I suppose.

                    Honestly.......who can really throw the same disc exactly the same exact way every time?

                    You are a liar if you answered yes. It does not matter if your disc is discraft or innova or any other kind...........every disc will eventually conform to the thrower.

                    Does my new jk pro aviar-x putter fly like my old one.....no. Even though my new is a proto bar stamp jk aviar and my old is a 3x jk aviar i will have my new putter flying just like my old one did in time. Its called breaking your discs in.........very rare to have a disc fly exactly the way you want right off the shelve.

                    Just my two cents........please dont bash me.........i play masters now!

                        Jeez things are lax in the disc golf world. In other bigger forums I use any kind of disrespect to the moderators is not only intolerable but rarely even seen in public because it is deleted before it gets seen.

                        It seems totalitarian but when these places get lively enough it becomes clear there needs to be some kind of rule. A tactful but untouchable moderator goes along way in that direction.

                          Not to sway this thread to a different direction or anything but I think we have a good moderator team that is more than fair and direct.

                            The drive to push buttons and be the resident dick is some aspiration. Will the real boners please stand up?

                            Interesting that today's chemical industry, as recently as the first half of the last century, was called, the "dyestuffs industry."

                                I didn't think about the color dye in effect to the plastic..I was showing my new star boss to Bjorn and Tuffi last night(Ming too) They seem fasinated as to how soft the disc is. So far it seems to me to be more over stable than my other bosses. I'm gona goto white river after work and try some comparison flights!! Yup any reason to throw!!
                                On a side note I have a disc dyed with the "boner" logo. HA!!
