I've got a big stack about 10 plasma Envy's the same weight. + one beautiful custom dye Evil Dead one.. The pretty one gets me into trouble it's tough to leave at home but it's a touch straighter than the rest.

Out of my stack 3 or 4 are identical straight, 3 stable, 2 OS, 2 US relatively speaking. All 165-167g plasma. Before a tourney I putt em all in a 10 disc elimination.. Whichever two are hot I bag em so I can swap if one goes cold. That said I carry a US Spin at 165 and sometimes still putt with it.

Now I have Jawbreaker for my Magnets and the Proline Titanic discs have enough grip loss for good putting finesse due to plastic getting stiff so I use the Jawbreaker set only then. I can use other similar plastic to Proline in my bag for non putting but for putting I need grip or stiff as they come if disc is a little slick. Even below 55 F the Proline Titanic gets a bit slick for putting but will still work down to 45 F.
So far with all my winter play over the years the plastic I like most is the Trilogy putters Medium blends - I won't ever putt Discraft or Innova as they do NOT have great softer plastics. Prodigy 300 soft is ok, its really not THAT soft, and Trilogy mediums are juuust right . not floppy, but in the cold they still have some good grip and catch the chains. I just wish they had a disc that felt like a Luna in that plastic. but ehhhh its whatever

I also prefer Trilogy Medium putting plastic in the winter, but Discraft Jawbreaker isn't that far behind. Very similar feel, just a little less tackiness. They are the same for me in cold/dry conditions, but the Trilogy plastic is better in cold/wet.

It's interesting that you guys will swap your putters for a different plastic in the winter...

Is it strictly a grip thing or are you preserving your main ones from cold weather cracking?

Strictly grip. I've never cracked a disc while putting, only while driving.

And I've never cracked a Trilogy disc. The only disc that broke for me in the cold was DX.

Typically just a grip thing for me. I really like the grip of the Rubber/D blend steadys in the cold. Regular D gets really slick when it's cold since the plastic has a smoother feel.

I don't worry too much about cracking my putters in the winter, since I'm really not throwing them off the tee much if at all.

I use two. One of several Classic Blend Wardens for most putts, and a GG Star Sonic for putts outside 60'.

I have only one putting putter mold, the Reko in k3 plastic, but I carry 3 of them. 2 identical max weights and one light weight (163-64g) in a different color. The 2 max weights I use for just about everything inside 55-60. I use the light weight for longer jump putts, uphill putts, and straddle putts where I may not have optimal footing or limited arm movement. I also use it for short approaches. The light weight Reko works great at this distance for me as it’s stability and glide will keeping my putting stroke nearly identical to closer range.
