If you want a quick fix for slick MVP, take them out and lightly rub the tops on a teepad or sidewalk. Just enough to get a good covering of light scratches. Then rub mud/dirt into the scratches. Rinse. Repeat...



... BTW that also works really well on fresh electrons and you don't have to scuff those before hand.

The dirt does the trick, you say? I'm the opposite, I rinse off all my discs after each round. The plastic itself provides the grip, not accumulated stuff on the surface. Some better than others, but most disc plastics are quite grippy, and designed to be that way.

I'm thinking he means that the dirt rubs into the material causing it to scuff on a microscopic level, thus increasing the grip. The dirt is then removed which leaves the newly grippy plastic exposed for human enjoyment.
However, I could be wrong.

It artificially weathers it. They do the same thing to baseballs and footballs.

Proton seems like it is now run in better grip feeling blends too.
Reported for illegal modifications and old school tactics while not being an old school disc golfer.

Regular N feels pretty good to me on my Proxy.

When I used the envy/proxy combo, I would use N soft in the fall/winter, and reg N in the spring/summer.
