    Where did you get the portable black light. We have been looking for one.

      try Craftwarehouse 2000 in beaverton, otherwise internet for about $6.50. The UV flashlights work MUCH better though i switched to a 12 LED one last year and get a more intense glow from it especially in the Photon plastic which black lights don't seem to affect much. and they are easier to carry with a cost of about $10.

        I have a couple, NIB, that I got on the Internet. I never use them, I do LEDs now. PM me if interested, I'll sell or trade them for a song.

          We are actually able to follow the disc as it flies .. but we only do that on holes where the disc can be lost, we do like to pretend it is night time a little

            LEDs work much better than glow discs. And you can still throw your favorite champion plastic, too...
            ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

              I second that! We actually have to use them around here since you would instantly lose a glo disc in the snow. The LED will illuminate the snow most of the time!

                LEDs are nice, and it's nice getting to throw discs you are used to, but I prefer Photon. The glo is subtle, and it even works in snow. We were out at Horning's in 20 inches, and photon makes a really cool glo spot even from a few inches under. But use what works ... that's why it works

                  We have tried all different sorts of glo up here. When the disc is under 10" of snow, there isn't one glo disc that you can see!! Forget it if it slices in and goes 30" down When that happens you can start to see the LED after digging for a little while

                  However, in the climate you people down south have, glo works pretty good most of the time

                        i know they seem spendy but they usually last about 4 or 5 sessions of night golf.

                            How to charge a glow disc

                            The best way I found out to charge a glow disc is with a led black light.

                              FYI we found an LED black lite at Walmart the other day. It is the type you clip to a hat, and it has three led bulbs. It's in the flashlite section in sporting goods, and it is under $10. We tested it out with our disc's and it works great.

                                Which walmart? I looked online and didn't find it. There aren't any walmarts where I live, the nearest is St Helens(40min drive) or online. -guess I live a pretty uppity part of town.
