I felt exactly the same way. Really noticed it with my Anode which I never had neutron until winter (my proton was money after some use the slickness was gone where my neutron anode is still like brand new) which is great but damn slippery as there is less contact area from the plastic being so smooth where proton gets a rougher texture to me and aids in the tackiness. Neither are grippy compared to vibram, lat, innova baselines, and so on so its really splitting hairs anyways in a sense of actual grip. Hell the floppy putters make med. MVP discs feel like dinner plates. I don't really like rubbery grippy discs though so that's why I love MVP putters. Premium as they get IMO.

I've switched back to putting with my Anodes. The Ridges just weren't doing it for me. The Anodes just feel better in my hand and work better with my current putting style.

I have 0 problem wiping off either my Neutron or Proton plastics, you people are using some bunk rags I think...

There's a joke about Katy Perry and wiping off rags here somewhere, but this is a family atmosphere, right?

Righhhhttttttt. I play rain or shine, just not <10* and windy. I've been playing through all these snow storms and the sloppy melt after it. Water = no problem...

Here's a test for everyone that I found quite interesting:

Get your Proton and Neutron out. Grab a Z and Champ too. Now, apply firm, even pressure with your thumb and slide it outward from the center of each disc.

I noticed:

- Proton & Neutron: Slides with mild, even resistance with no sound.

- Z and Champ: Thumb skids as it grabs and slides; like rubbing a balloon.

Now, get them wet and repeat the test:

- Proton & Neutron: Thumb skids as it grabs and slides; like rubbing a balloon.

- Champ: Slides easily, no sound.

- Z: Thumbs skids a little, but slides easy.

Further, I noted water appeared to bead off Neutron more readily than the others, but wipes off easily from all about equally.

In concluding, I found it odd how the plastics roles reversed in watery conditions. Although the apparent tackiness of the plastics differed, I found all hard to grip firmly when wet. While both Proton and Neutron don't give as immediate a sense of surface resistance as compared to Z or Champ, I found the smooth tension a positive in quickly obtaining a firm grip. I find Proton and Neutron to be on equal footing in this regard. I didn't find any plastic to be disadvantageous as to how it attracted water, but would give a slight edge to Neutron for it's mild, yet notable water beading properties. Perhaps a shammy would be better for quick disc wipe.
