as far as the grip issue goes, you would probably have to look at several factors affecting that, one i think is from one person to the next, their body chemistry is different. some people have oily skin, which may help with slicker plastic. i have very dry skin, and live in an area where 20% humidity is high, so that slick plastic just doesnt work for me. someone living in the deep south like georgia with a different body chemistry may just love that slick plastic.
i know you cant please everyone with what you offer, but thank you for all the different options that are available from innova. btw, i will have to try that windex thing on my discs to see if it makes a difference.
I haven't checked which products specifically have been named to be legal for tournament play out of grip enhancers. So i don't know about the legality of applying bees wax but it is a natural product that has been used for skin care so it makes your skin better while providing grip to below freezing conditions.
Finnish competition season started on January 2nd in IIRC about -12 C in the morning going to about -10 C later. I wish i had applied bees wax to non grippy discs. I wasn't the only one who stood upright and had the snow surface up to navel in the worst places :-D
