Posted:I just got my first Ultras. I have 10 Aqua, 10 orange, and 10 green (5min). And I have 10 15min yellow ones cause they were cheap.

I got them in the mail and I have trouble figureing them out. Mostly because this ONE COLOR confuses the hell out of me. 10 of them are BLACK uncracked. The grren ones are in a labeled bag, the ornage ones are red, that's easy. But then I'm confused between the yellow and aqua. I know that normal blue glowstick, not 5mins, are clear, and normal yellows are yellow. But what color is this BLACK one???

Posted:Shine a black light on it and it should glow the colour it's meant to be. Violet, orange and green won't always work with a black light, but blues, yellows and reds almost always do.

Posted:Thanks for the blacklight thing! I'll do that! And I would crack one, but I only have 10 of that color

Ok, I guess black = yellow and yellow = aqua laugh3

Wel the ones i thought would end up being yellow glowed a light green very slightly blue color, so those must be aqua.

Posted:Strange the chemicals used for them must not be very high quality. Typically, the black light will make them glow a colour similar to what they are meant to be.

Posted:Idk I got it from the same sight Guinto gets his figuring they were high quality. And seeing them in video, they sure look high quality.

And the blacklight did make them glow those colors. It made the black ones glow yellow, so I'm assuming those will be yellow when cracked, those are 25 minute ones. And the yellow ones glowed a slightly blueish green color, so I'm assuming those are Aqua when cracked.

Posted:I like to pack light so I rip the wrappings off my GS and use my black light stick to tell the difference. It has yet to fail me.

It's always good to have some OSPK's like EoN or myself around to teach you the tricks. wink

A German guy named Oliver taught me that at the BLP.

Posted:I got some ultras a few months ago. SUPER bright but only lasted 5 min before they looked like the 8-12 hour ones then died about 5 minutes after that. The green ones are amazing imo.
