Whatever disc in my bag the next shot calls for.

So many grippy plastics/rubbers though. Baseline (DX, R-Pro, XT, KC Pro types) and Vibram in general gives the best grip.

Add Lake Fenwick to the unplayable list. I will check out the ESP FLX, thanks. And I am buying the first round when we finally meet.
Sure no worries, anytime.

OK did not know that about Fenwick but I'll log that in my memory bank. The list of playable courses is shorter I think haha.

Would love to get a round in with you

I carry an R-Pro disc, and an RFF Wizard that BOTH have excellent grip wet.

Maybe try a microfiber towel. You can wring them out and they'll keep pulling water off of discs. I carry a small one with me. We tend to get a lot of morning dew in St. Louis area, so if you play before noon, discs are constantly wet, and this has worked. It won't get them 100% dry, but helps.

I have an Eraser Wizard that's good, not great. I definitely prefer the RFF. I also got a cheap used Soft Challenger putter that's very grippy. About the same as the RFF.

I honestly don't have a terrible time with Star or GStar.

Probably anything baseline: D or DX.

But I don't bag any except for my Polecat, so I'll go for whatever towel-cleaned disc I happen to think fits the shot.

Seconding this. XT is hands down the best plastic for wet conditions.

Towels don't seem to do the trick for very long, they get damp and certain plastics just won't come dry. I prefer a quick wipe and even if they're damp, when it's wet, or wet and cold, this is what works for me;
Yeti Pro
XT
R-Pro
Kc Pro (if it's beat up a little)
DX/Pro-D and most base line type plastics
Starlite, (the rougher ones give really good grip)
G-Star, (though some G-Star runs are pretty slick when wet)

I tend to disc up or throw a more understable disc then I'd normally use to make up for the lack grip and snap in the rain.

Examples:

Stable distance driver instead of an overstable fairway
Understable control driver instead of a stable fairway
Understable mid instead of a stable putter drive
