I assume you are referring to soft plastics Mike?
For me a lot depends on fish specie and time of year [water temp]. I use zero glow plastic during the summer. late spring or early fall. When the water temps are below about 45 degrees I'll start using some plastics with limited amount of glow exposure. Sunfish will peck at any color of glow while red is a good crappie trigger color. When I get serious about the dock fishing in the late fall with water temps dangling around the 43 degree mark I use purple glow almost exclusively, but its a tough glow color to work with as it is hard to charge if the plastic is cold and once charged its duration is fairly short....maybe four to five minutes before needing a touch up.
Everyone and their brothers uses the eerie green glow with red glow right on green's heels so its possible that those two glows can be "over-worked". Glow purple is at a totally different part of the spectrum and is about as close to any visible uv as one will ever get and that's likely the reason its such a great color of glow for me, while the masses either are unaware that its available or they have a tough time using baits containing the pigment. I keep all of my glow plastics in an inside pocket to keep them warm which helps getting the initial charge into them. Once glow products get cold they become increasingly difficult to charge and they hold the charge for way less time.
Also, I do not make full baits with glow plastic, maybe just a tail or a portion of a tail. Even in very clear water with little to reflect the glow glow products will cast an aura around the glowing portion of the bait and can make a bait appear way larger than it actually is and move fish away from the lure. Same with large jig heads and glow, Same with uv glow enhancers. The latter I usually tape off all but a small area if I am using a product like the spray Blast.
Glow products work great and have saved many a day for people but I think that glow products also get "over-used" in most instances. A little glow goes a super long way.
