Default P-Line Plastic

Got my P2s in the mail today and I'm loving the glide they seem to have. The only thing I'm not too fond of is that the P-line plastic feels kind of slippery for me - I can handle it but it's not as grippy as the X-line plastic (also bought an XP1x) and I'm wondering if this slippery feeling will fade as they're broken in more or if I can do anything to them to get them a little more grippy?

If not I won't worry about it for a little while and will probably buy some different ones in a different plastic in the near future and keep the P-lines for driving.

Just curious if anything can be done in the mean time?

Why not speed the seasoning process along and rub your disc on some gravel?

I have had the same issue with some p-line discs before. If you wash it softly in slightly warm water with the rough side of a sponge it might help a little. That is what I do before I start using a new pair of P2s and they seem to feel pretty good. I've heard some people rub mud all over the disc and wash it off. They say it takes that slippery feeling away. I've never tried it.

Ive also done sandpaper. Wipe off with a dry towel.

I'd say washing with warm water and drying off with a rough towel will get some of the "slippery" off. My P2s are still new, but I have Pro SLs, and they lost what slickness that had with normal use, so I'd expect yours would do the same with use.

Dump some acetone on it. Let it sit a few seconds. Rinse, repeat until desired stickiness.

Flip over to underside, repeat.

Otherwise just use it a lot for a month or two.

Forgot to mention...only use acetone if you don't care about the stamp.
