I've felt both of those and neither are near as grippy as my eclipse soft Anode...It is easily the grippiest disc (especially in warm/humid conditions) I've ever felt. It would be FAR easier for someone to wrestle a baseline disc out of my grip than my Anodes. They almost bond to my skin with minimal pressure.

The most important thing here is that grip is a very individual thing. I could put a disc on a table and ask 10 different disc golfers to describe how well it gripped. Some would call it slick, some grippy, and others may say it's too grippy. I think hard baseline grips like absolute crap, yet it's probably number one amongst the best players in the world. Should that mean anything to me? Not if the disc feels bad in my hands.
