The flexability and gumminess of a disc is what contributes to grip in cold weather regardless of plastic type IMO. I have a Z Surge that is super easy to grip in the 30's and I have a Star Starfire that feels horrible, it doesn't give at all.
Yeah, I think I've gotten lucky with the two Star discs I have. My Star TL is pretty soft and grippy, but I bought a used Star TeeRex yesterday (almost brand-new, pink, for only $5) that feels perfect in terms of grip.
The only weather I've been playing in in the last month is cold weather, and I find Z plastic to be great, mostly because of the writing on the inside of the rim which I use for a grip point. It is especially good on my Flashes and XS, which are nice and gummy. Champ is a little less cold dependable without the raised letters, but they are mostly gummy, which helps grip. X and Pro both are great. DX is good, but I don't use much of it, excepting my Firebird.
