    Depends. PVC is harder and more slick. Its going to have the tendancy to just slide around all the time. ABS is a softer compounds, so it has a little more grip.

    Most drifters now use ABS over PVC if it is avaliable to them(including me). It gives you a bit more grip because of it's softer compound.

    IMO, I like it better than PVC. I feel like I have more control of the grip.
