    Re: Drying towels

    Everest 1100. I have some PFM towels and they are excellent. I like the smaller size of the Everest and it seems like they hold more water per towel area.

    Re: Drying towels

    PFM all the way.

    Other towels have been mentioned above by highly-respected members, and I do not doubt them at all.

    But since the PFM is a Griot's product, if there were ever a problem with the towel (manufacturing defect, not user error), I have no doubt that Griot's would stand behind it 100% as they do with all of their offerings.

    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    Re: Drying towels

    PFMs are good and I have many of them, but I prefer these two a bit more:

    1. TRC The Gauntlet
    2. Luxury Microfiber/DPC Sucker Jr.

    All work well and there are many options. PFMs snag a little too easy on emblems and trim molding for my taste which would be my only complaint.

    Re: Drying towels

    ^^^ just goes to show peoples preferences. I have approx 15 gauntlets and it is a great towel, but for me it performs better with “blot” drying. It doesn’t drag across the paint smoothly for me unless I prep it with a drying aid. We all have our preferences.

    Scooby doo beach towel. My ultra rare 1980s Go Bots one was probably the best ever.

    Re: Drying towels

    Like everyone has mentioned for drying their favorites. I like TRC PLATINUM PLUFFLE 16x24.
    My choices like polish removal, waterless washes, etc we all have favorites. The Pluffles work for me.

    Both the absorber and water sprite have to be broken in to work good. My absorber out of the container was crap , but after 8 0r 9 uses it worked great . AT work we used the water sprite, we used often and they were broke in in a couple days.
