Washing Mit, need help deciding

I am looking at replacing my Meg mit as its a couple years old and replace it with either CarPro Wool Wash Mitt or the new Micro-Chenille Wash Mitt. Or maybe use Wool for upper and Chenille for lower. Thoughts?

These pads are my favorite. Not the mitts. I hate mitts because they throw water everywhere and they're not easy to flip.

Thanks, i read that article, but it didnt compare it to the CarPro Wool Wash Mitt. I do want the Chenille, but is it worth getting the carpro wool too? Is it better for the upper parts of the car compared to the Chenille?

I used to a wool wash mitt and been using a Chenille mitt with success. Maybe Todd can do us a write-up on the two mitts someday.

I just got this the other week and I love it

http://www.adamspolishes.com/p-83-ad...-wash-pad.aspx

Of all the pads I've used this one got my car noticeably cleaner, with no excess scrubbing/multiple passes etc..

Well i decided to order both, probably use the wool on the top and the other for the lower. Unfortunately Autopia and Autogeek were out of the larger wool pad so i did a google and lucked out that another Florida company is offering 10% off with free shipping for Florida residents.
