JR wrote:My favorite winter time gear that is not a tacky disc further tackied up by whatever goo you use like beeswax or some bowling or baseball tacky stuff are light grippy shoes that do not limit the mobility of my ankle. Light mobility retaining shoes make walking much less taxing and good grip (it helps to have grip enhancers) reduce slipping on each step so the experience is much nicer. What you need for low tops in the winter is the fave gear of mine -Sealskinz water proof socks. They don't go infinitely high so using downhill skiing pants that seal the pant legs from the snow getting in under the top of the socks means that i almost never get snow thus moisture inside the pants.
It does not hurt to have 800 grams per square meter material in merino wool socks inside the Sealskinz in colder weather Polar explorers use those.

It usually starts in Novemember and lasts till March. I started out putting some petrolatum based stuff with vitamin E on my hands at night under some cotton gloves. I did this for two weeks and even though I was playing regularly the cracks began to heal and were not ripping open when I played. I had to quit wearing the gloves at night because I was having some weird ass dreams. I've been consistent about using lotion during the day especially after I wash my hands.
I few weeks ago I picked up some O'keeffes working hands at the local hardware and this stuff is the real deal. I put it on before I go to bed and don't have to worry about the gloves. I've even been using the O'keeffes during the day as long as I am not going to play disc golf because it makes your hands feel kind of waxy.
It was kind of a pain at first but now it's part of my routine and I don't have to think about it. So thanks guys for all your advice.
