Anyone have any excess Neon Yellow Rit Dye they would like to sell a small portion of?  I don't believe I will do this long enough to merit buying a 1lb bag of it, but would really like to test it out with a different dye.

Ha, literally takes 5 minutes...Can't golf at midnight either.

I used 1 teaspoon neon yellow RIT (available only online) to about 1 `/1 cups. Heated the water to almost boiling and then put the dye in and then the balls after stirring.

What is that ratio?
1tsp to how many cups?

I've been using 1 tsp to about 1 1/3 cups and have had pretty good results.  I've found that the key is to stir the mixture every few minutes while the balls are sitting in it, otherwise all of the rit settles in the bottom.  You can also re-use the mixture, but you have to heat it in the microwave.  For some reason, once it gets could it doesn't work as well.

My buddy once left his golf bag at my apartment. Me and a roommate decided to die his golf balls blue.

The heat of the water led to the seams of the ball covers to separate...

I tried this last night with terrible results.  I used one cup of hot water with liquid RIT sunshine orange.  I tried with two balls, an old titleist and a new noodle+.  after an hour i looked and nothing had changed so i dumped another spoonful of dye in and let it sit for 8-9 hours.  this morning i woke up and the balls had just turned a slight off-white color...nothing like the video or anyone elses turned out.  i dont know what i did wrong?

How hot is the water? I thought I saw somewhere that the temp needs to be hotter than 140. The water at my place is 160. Also, each ball takes the dye differently. Wilson Staff Tx4 absorb it the best.

Here we go, a few more:-


Coloured golf balls.jpg


I used the RIT royal blue powder dye mixed with warm water in a glass jar overnight. I reckon I could use the dye again, btw. Might need an old pan to heat it up first, tho.

The wilson staff FG Tours came out the best, the TM rocketballz next darkest and the srixon trispeed hardly changed colour at all.

All the balls were slightly worn from use prior to dying, so better results might be had with new balls.

a small amount of violet will deepen and brighten the yellow color. the emphasis is on a small amount.

the dye can be reused, just reheat it to about 140 - 150 degrees.

I am working on an orange that I want to use. I shoot a lot of trap and skeet and since the color on them
is orange and they are easy to pick out in all light conditions.

The lighter orange was 1/2 cup water at about 150 degrees, 1 tbsp rit sunshine orange liquid dye and 1 tbsp vinegar.

Put the jar in the sink and put hot water in the sink up to the level of the liquid in the jar. Shook it up a few times and left them in
for about 4 hours.

The darker orange was 1 1/2 tbsp rit tangerine dye and 1/4 tsp of scarlet and then the same amount of vinegar. Again about 4 hours.

These were with Penta balls. I tried it with Top Flite Gamer and did not take much color. I am trying the lethal now and have gotten a nice yellow
mixing 2 tbsp Lemon Yellow with 1/2 tbsp sunshine orange and the same amount of vinegar as dye. I haven't been able to get the darker orange but will try again tomorrow.

RIT Liquid Dye works best.  Powder dyes seem to settle to the bottom and you have to keep mixing.
Also different balls stain differently... my MG Tour C4 balls will barely stain... whereas Wilson Staff TX4 urethane balls will stain brightly.

Someone posted photos of them earlier in the thread. It may have been a different ball coloring thread, but I have seen it. The turmeric colored balls only held their color for a couple holes.
