I am a new player with no past experience. I really started playing in September, and I play everyday. The winter has been rather wet here in France, so I've been using towels - and I chose microfiber towels rather early, which means that I have little experience of regular towels.
Now I noticed that after a round of play, my hands are dried up, which is an issue both in terms of durability of these very-difficult-to-replace items and (more importantly for a truly dedicated discgolfer) in terms of grip. After a whole tournament last week-end, I am only recovering now (Thursday) - and I've been using lots of hand cream.
I was wondering whether this was a normal phenomenon, or something that has to do with microfibers (or is aggravated by them). The point of these extremely efficient fibers is that they lock up moisture, grease, dust etc... instead of shoving the stuff around
. I assume this applies to sebum, which is badly needed by the human skin. In other words, if they do it to the disc, they do it to you.
So my question to experienced players who have switched from regular towels to microfibers is: did you notice any difference with respect to hand dryness?
