The arms should be stiffer in the cold so I would think that this would improve things for you not the other way around. Also, the density altitude factor is working to my advantage as I am at 7,000 ft. MSL and get better lift in the cold. Good luck with it. We can compare notes after the "sleeve job"
I've been putting off sleeving the arms but I think it's time to just go ahead and do it. It might be in my mind but it feels like my arms are actually more flimsy than they used to be.
