    So the other day, I did a quick WW with Ultima and used both the GG Plush and the Pluffles (who thinks of these names) and I agree for the task at hand the GG's were better. Also after washing, just by the feel of it the GG's are a more substantial towel. But then again, my error, I did not know Pluffles were drying towels - and for drying, I don't think there's much better than the PFMs.

    Guess different experiences for different users. I’m a GRIOTS fan as I live 25 mins from their HQ and have loved almost everything from them.

    The two things that have not impressed me are their glass sealant and any MF i’ve used from them except PFM’s


    Recommend EE 500’s over both. Like the Pluffles but EE more versatile.

    That must be addictive living close to that candy store! I'm also a huge GG fan - products and customer service. But I guess few companies with such an extensive line of products are capable of hitting home runs all the time.

    I agree with you about their glass sealant - just a meh product. I would also add their foam sprayer - I think I bought three and all started leaking at the handle. Their basic Glass Cleaner is another just ok product, certainly not a standout. Last to my list are the new microfiber wheel mits - pretty useless for wheel cleaning.
    But I do like GG's other towels also the old as well as new glass cleaning towels are superb for the task at hand. Also like their green interior/leather cleaning towels as well as wax removal and their detailing towels.

    I talked my buddy into buying the new Brilliant Finish Foam Cannon from Griot's Garage, looking forward to hearing his input and having a go myself.

    I hope he has better luck with it than I did. I just took a peek at the reviews and they are mixed - hopefully he and you will have a positive experience with it.

    Me - I bought this one (or similar) Blackfire Quart Foamaster Foam Gun

    It is a very high quality unit and has brass fittings where needed and works perfectly. It's what GG's should be, but then again, GG's is quite a bit less expensive.

    I also have a MTM Foam Cannon for use with the pressure washer.

    Well he's using a pressure washer and yes, I hope he has better luck. I watched Auto-Fanatic's review and he's pretty picky, so I was on board. I'd like to think it has brass bits in it. The price is cheaper than their other unit, wonder if that one will be sticking aroundRag Company's Pluffle or Griot's Garage's  Plush Edgeless Towels?

    Itíll probable be sticking around as being part of the boss system itís designed to work with the bottles of surface prep, wash, and polygloss.

    You can hook the cannon directly to bottle. Also change the different ends to control foam density.

    Rag Company's Pluffle or Griot's Garage's Plush Edgeless Towels?

    They can be used as [mention]The Guz [/mention] does for all surfaces. The are not better than PFMís but I do like them with drying aids.



    They actually only recommend it for small area touch up for drying, even on large sizes

    Also I read somewhere that they excel at waterless and rinseless because like a waffle weave the pockets give the debris somewhere to go.

    For rinseless and waterless i like them but no better than EE.

    I feel where they excel is using a drying aid to dry. Iím sure those Griots are fine but i go with the EE as Griots rarely has MF on sale.

    If AG carries the Griots I would recommend ordering a pack of both and forming then giving us your opinion on both. Iím sure you will find uses for both.
