    Me too. I have PFM towels and Gyeon silk dryers that are over a year old and still as absorbent as day one. These have never been used with drying aids.

They absorb water unlike any other style of drying towel I've used.
    Similarly, I have dried 2 mid-sized sedans with the large PFM back to back. It was so heavy with water, but it couldn't be wrung out. Starting the 2nd car with the damp PFM wasn't too bad, but by then end of it I would say it was done (couldn't absorb more). But that's still very impressive for a drying towel.

    I have a Meguiar's Water Magnet, and it's done after just half a mid-sized sedan. Once that's saturated, no amount of wringing will bring it back. I find even a traditional chamois is much better in that regard.

    My Meguiar's Water Magnet starts to streak after one panel.

    I received my Gyeon Silk drying towel this week,and I used to to dry my wife's G8 off after a rinseless wash with Mckees 37 Rinse Free Wash and Wax.

    It is a very nice towel,but the PFM is still the champ. Not sorry I bought it at all,but the PFM is just better. I did the whole car with no streaking,but it simply won't hold as much water as a PFM.

    Re: Drying towels: is the PFM by Griot's still the best?

    I waited for a sale and I purchased the Griots PFM Terry Weave drying towel to see what the big deal was. A $38 price tag for a towel seemed a bit outrageous to me but with an open mind I decided to try it. Now I am a believer. What a superb product. It is soft and absorbent and does not leave streaks. I use Wolfgang Uber as a drying aid but I am not sure if I need it.

    I just bought two small PFM's for drying my wheels.

    I was sick of breezing over the whole truck in a few minutes with the PFM, then struggling with inferior WW towels for my chrome wheels.
