LOL, there's an innovation out there that can help with this. It's called a towel.

This is true. I do think that, over the long haul, P can start to scuff slightly, which improves it's wet condition grip some. I notice this especially on my putters. The soft P develops a really trusty grip to it after hours (and hours and hours) of chain hits.

LOL, no doubt. I might could have even laughed it off if it wasn't such a tough one to replace exactly.

no difference and you cant even get all the discs in both plastic so its even harder to really say one is a favorite.

Newer blends grip way better than the older rock hard stuff specially the proton plastic and neutron is much more flexible than the earlier runs. When new the plastics are nearly identical but how they season up is really the only difference and when MVP discs fly the best. If you made an opinion only throwing fresh proton or neutron discs then its really even more of a wash.

Neutron starts without as much glide and slightly stronger LSS. Once the gloss wears down it gets little added glide with the fade straightening out.

Proton is the same just flies "faster" and subject to less surface damage IMO. You can rough up a neutron disc a slightly easier than proton.

Hard to argue that the durability are the same, or that the feel of them are the same.

There are two on my bag, and now I carry a full bath towel. The humidity in CENLA is absolutely miserable right now.
