I'm in the ATL. We didn't have "Winter" last Winter. Ergo, I don't make many hardly any changes at all. And if I were in Seattle, I probably wouldn't make any significant changes.

As to colors, I try to get blue and pink discs, followed by other standout colors, so that issue is usually not a problem for me.

I add more hand towels. And some of the slickest old KC Pro Rocs get swapped for DX.

I tend to focus on setting up a bag of well-related discs as we go into winter -- 4-5 Destroyers that slot well together, 2 Firebirds (more and less OS), 3-4 OLFs that lot well together, 4-5 Rocs that do the same -- with the intention of throwing the same setup all winter, and really dialing them in by next spring's meetup. The setup that's been in my bag most of the summer often needs revisiting by the end of the season.

I agree that seasoned star and baseline plastics work best in Oregon's very-wet winter, but that's my bag anyway, so I don't have to change much.

If I'm having trouble holding onto the disc I'll change from 400 to 400G plastic for drivers. Go with a mid-weight Opto Saint Pro instead of a max weight Champ Glow Thunderbird and swap my 400 F2 for a lighter broken in Star TeeBird.

The friction glove has changed my winter routine entirely. I don't really switch out anything except some situational discs that I don't carry all the time anyway (like a roller). I do more frequently play with a small bag though: grab half a dozen discs from my zuca and leave the cart home. It's harder to roll in wet, squishy grass anyway.

I'm up the I5 from you in BC and wear hiking boots and carry a nice big golf umbrella in the crappy weather. Lots of towels and a zippo handwarmer are in my winter bag. I don't switch out for different types of plastic.

The Friction Gloves are amazing, and I HATE gloves...when it's raining, i don't even dry my discs off, the gloves give me incredible grip.

Tac is the key word. Every grade of plastic is capable of having it even the hard champ stuff.

But usually for me I lean a little lighter, dx/baseline stuff. And recently, some gstar favorites that have stood out from previous colder weather play get swapped into the rotation.

But really, for me cold and wet usually means that I don't play much.

Replaced my Ti Zone with a ESP FLX Glo Zone for my first coldish weather round today. Loved it, I guess that's one perk of winter coming.

I wonder if the Jawbreaker Zone would be even better to swap in. I'm very tempted to order one.
