What is the best Microfiber towel on the market for Drying cars.

I recently just got into the auto detailing scene with the purchase of my new car. That said, I have ALWAYS used old cotten towels for drying my car. After readying this forum and others like it, I decided to pick up some Microfiber towels from my local Target. They are branded VROOM. Odd name.

Anyhow, I about fell over when I washed my car yesterday. I literally cannot explain the difference and ease of drying off a car with one these things versus old cotten towels, which I had done for 31 years!

That said, I want the best Microfiber towels money can buy. I figure since I will be washing my car at least once a week, I want the best microfiber towel for the specific use of drying off my car.

It seems that a lot of people are partial to the Cobra towels sold here. I got to the Meguiars forums, and they are obviously loving the McGuires product.

Long story short, I would like everyone best impartial suggestion as to what the best microfiber towel on the market is. Thanks!

I see that the Coba Guzzler's seem to be the most popular around here. Has anyone used several brands other than the Cobra towels that still likes Cobra the best?

I have also been referred to pakshack towels as well. Again, I don't know one from the other and am hoping some members have tried several brands and have a favorite.

cobra guzzlers really win the vote because they are pretty much the only oversized mf towel available...but there is a reason they are the only one...built perfect from the start....

depends...some of the less plush mf's are better for all purpose use...no need to use a super plush mf for something like wiping down your dash or seats...

I agree, use the cheap ones for wheels, etc.

I've used a few different types of WWs and wasn't really convinced of their drying power until I got the guzzler. The thing takes care of my car with ease, then again my car isn't very big (focus svt 3door), but I think I could dry a lot more than I do.

I've heard good things about the meguiar's water magnet and super suede microfiber as well.
