Default Best type of plastic for very hot/humid days?

I was wondering with some hand sweat and whatnot, a birdie bag helps, but what kind of plastic is best for you to use on those hot days?

I mainly have Dx, Star, Gold Line, Opto, Prime, Classic Blend , and Zero Medium.

I'm going to take a guess that baseline works the best such as DX. Just a guess....

Thanks

Best all around plastic for me is DX, R-Pro, KC, and Star.

On hot humid days, champ, Z, G* and Pro type plastics all tend to slip at times, enough that I don't bag them in the height of Summer.

I have two beat the hell Gold Line discs I'm gonna bag, and probably all DX for tomorrow. Zero Medium feels pretty good in the heat.

The Gold Lines I've played in rain with. This weather sucjs and it's why I used to bag mostly baseline discs. Now all of a sudden its mostly premium. Readjusting time. Also I've been hitting a big plateau.

Beat in discs work best for me in the heat, regardless of plastic type.

GStar, seasoned Z, Gateway Soft/Firm, Elite X all work pretty well for me in the hot, humid summers in the south.

I was throwing putters and some mids at my basket today in the heat/humidity and baseline plastic such as DX was way less bouncy. A near miss with a star the thing travels 10 feet and rolls 10 more lol

Gstar for warmer temps? That stuff I can bend into a taco. Unless it's like a driver and wont putt with it like the 2 gold lines I'm carrying, I get it. I care about comfort the most. Definitely harder discs like a DX would be good for around the chains. Winter time GStar and DX are money. I guess premium plastic unless worn the hell out is good for spring and fall. Just my opinion.

Edit: I'm actually wondering about the gstar cause I have a nice TB and Beast one G* one Pro plastic I like. Thanks.
