Cold Weather morphed my MVP HELP!

Hello you Oracles of Disc Golf. I am just getting back to playing after playing very sparingly in the winter. I have a MVP Anode (Neutron Plastic) that was slightly concave () at the dome, after a few months in my truck it is now convex () and the flight has been severly affected. Does anyone know a fix to this or should I drop another $20 on a replacement. For conclave/convex clarification I have attached smilies. Thank you everyone.

Hot water and a large bowl that supports the rim should help.

I've got three neutron Anodes, and all three of them have a bit of a puddle top now...I've had them for 5 months, but I noticed them puddling after about 3...it's kind of bummer.

How hot? boiling? Or as hot as my faucet gets?

I think you have your caves and vexes reversed. -and not boiling. (will clog your drain when the black rim melts off )

For future reference, I'd just say not to leave your discs in the car.

Yep, I think you've got concave and convex exactly backwards. Maybe you mean to say it was domey and now the flight plate has sunken in? That's how I'm interpreting it anyway.

Either way, water that is technically hot as balls should flatten it out, but I don't know that you'd ever be able to make it domey again. The process works the same to flatten discs that have too much dome. The water should be hotter than your tap, but not boiling. Just heat some up to steamy goodness and carefully pour it in. (I would suggest a glass measuring cup in the microwave, b/c it doesn't take that much water to fill a disc) Then put a flat weight on top and let it cool all the way down. You should end up with a flat top, which isn't exactly what is sounds like you want, but hey, it's something.

It was domey, now sunk in. I'm going to fill a portion of the bowl with ice water on the bottom, set the disc in with the sides supported and place hot ass water in the inside for about 15 minutes. Then let it rest in a bowl with the sides supported. I'll let everyone know how it works out. Thanks again.

I actually prefer my Ions / Anodes with a little puddle top. IMO it doesn't affect the flight and it helps with the grip! Also, I've never even seen a domey MVP putter.
