Re: Question for Dave D
chase, I believe the earliest SE TLs were an opaque red. I don't know about the hotstamps. A subsequent run had more colors, but were still opaque. When you can see through the plastic and see bubbles, that is a later run, with a different plastic formulae.
By far, the most important part of any shot is what is happening in the last split second as the disc is pulling itself from your grip. Focus there. It's the key.
