Troubles with Anode's grip

I've been putting with a Proton soft Anode for a while now, and it just seems to have a poor grip in certain situations. Usually, it's if it is either cold or rainy, but sometimes it can happen when the disc gets a little "dusty" as well. On hot and dry days, I'm usually fine, but at this time of year I'm not a big fan. It also doesn't seem to do well in windy conditions either. Does anyone have any good suggestions for a disc that putts like an Anode but comes in a non-proton type of plastic and is more firm. FYI, my style of putting is a lot like Nikko's. Also, I've already tried an Aviar P&A, a Focus, a Prodigy PA2, and a Judge but I didn't like any of them, and Gateway putters appear to be too inconsistent as far as different runs go. Thoughts?

Sand off the factory gloss on a neutron anode.

Yup, sanded a couple of mine last winter. 320-400 grit felt good to me.

Thanks for the quick responses!

If I were to go a non-MVP route, what would you suggest?

The inner rim is a little unique to ion/anode core. There are lots of similar stability wise but not sure about exact feel. Its something people dont like about the ion or anode actually and why MVP envy has been a big hit.

Gateway is your best bet for plastic and different putters options to try out. Voodoo maybe im not sure on that one i think its the beadless wizard tho

I've already tried the Aviar, but something just didn't feel right. Something taller would be nice. Something almost like a focus that flies straighter.

Vibram's putter lineup is every bit as solid as Gateway's with less variation in plastics (rubber). Grip for days unlike MVP and probably less bounce outs too.

I feel like the gateway magic might be similar in feel, been a while since I've held both at the same time though
