    Griot's coming with more new towels

    Noticed on the "What's New" spot on their website that they've got a new round of towels coming.

    PFM Edgeless Detailing Towels - Looks like they took the edge styling (not satin banded) of their biggest PFM and applied it to the 16X9 detailing towel. They didn't list the GSM, but I'd bet it would still be 1120 GSM like the XL PFM Edgeless towel or the previous style PFM Detailing towels. 3 pack. (Available 3/31/21)

    PFM Crinkle Glass Towels - 16x16 dual sided glass towel, with one Crinkly side and one tight weave side. Looks like the tight weave side might be slightly different than the previous PFM glass towels, but tough to say from the little picture online. Comes as a 3 pack. (In stock)

    Microfiber Wheel Wash Mitts - 4 finger mitt with a thumb hole. Comes as a 2 pack. (In stock)

    Microfiber Plush Edgeless Wash Mitts - Looks made for rinseless washing, though they say for regular washes as well. 12x12, stitched to be folded into quarters like their microfiber wash pad, 760 GSM "Deep Pile" (Available 3/31/21).

    Surface Prep Towel - Clay towel. 9x9. Claim up to 60 cars. (Available 3/17/21)

    Microfiber Edgeless Utility Towels - 12x12, 265 GSM. Look ultrasonic cut or whatever the normal edgeless cut style is. I think the old ones were 200gsm, these look like they could be good for coating wipe off/etc. 50 per pack. (Available 3/31/21)

    They also have a "Brilliant Finish Foam Cannon" (pressure washer style), which is $40 cheaper than the BOSS Foam Cannon. I'm not sure if they'll still sell the BOSS cannon when the Brilliant Finish one comes out? Just quick looking, they sure seem to share basically the same features outside of styling/bottle shape.

    Sorry, I'm not tech savvy enough to get photos of each up during my lunch break, but they're all up on their site.

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

    Re: Griot's coming with more new towels

    So, after looking back at the site, looks like the Brilliant Finish cannon is more entry level. Electroplated aluminum manifold vs the all stainless of the BOSS cannon, plus it doesn`t have the auto metering tips of the BOSS cannon that allow you to thread on your unmixed bottle of choice (I really love this feature on the BOSS cannon).

    Still a good option for folks looking for a well backed cannon.

    They also updated the quick connects they sell so they`ll actually connect to non-industrial pressure washers. Ran into that when I got the BOSS cannon when it came out - the quick connect body was just a smidge too long to click into my Ryobi pressure washer wand, I found out that the one they were selling was apparently the style commonly used with heavier-duty pressure washers.

    I'm curious as to how well the looped edgeless MF would work. Do they streak with QD?
