I just bought my first Vibram disc - Valley in x-link. I'll be curious to see how it plays. Might lead me to check out the Ridge.

Supposedly, the Nova is just an overmolded Aviar P&A, so a DX or RPro Aviar P&A should do the trick if you like that basic shape (don't get a McPro, they are slicker than your Nova). The Whale also feels similar.
I don't mind the deep feel of the Nova. I putt with R-Pro Aviars. The are flippy unlike the Nova.

I haven't thrown a Whale, just pawed one in the store. It might be worth a try for you. An XT Whale would be grippy, and I think they come in Champion plastic, as well.

Take some really fine grade sandpaper to the flightplate on top and bottom.

Otherwise get a DX Aviar PnA.

Advice of the year. I prefer NY style myself, but more pizza will solve all disc golf problems (or make you forget them).

This was always the anode for me. Turn resistant. Neutral flight. Powers down extreamly well.

The OP wants grippy when wet. If the XT plastic used for the Nova doesn't work, then none of the premium MVP plastics are going to do the trick. Maybe when Electron Anodes finally arrive that would be an option though.
