Sub'd. Wonder how the wave rider and cloud buster towels would compare to Adam's stuff. I guess Dry me crazy is a step above the waffle weave ones?

Not sure if it's a step above or just a different approach. I just have enough Waffle Weaves to last me a lifetime so I didn't care to purchase another right now.

Microfibers, when drying your car makes your paint susceptible to scratches. It will work but Not the best idea IMO.

Blow drying your car then dabbing the leftover water is much better.

Or if your car is properly maintained you can easily sheet 90% of the water off then proceed to dab the remaining drops and follow with a detail spray to lubricate the area to prevent marring when wiping the water marks if any.

To me Blow drying the car Always seems to never work for me.
The streaks left behind suck.

On a side note I can't wait to see the reviews of each towel.
I hope my recommendation wasn't in vain and you hate em lol.

Good point. Although I can never seem to sheet that much water off.

I think I need to use better sealants.

although when I blowdry my car the water just flies off the paint idk..

Anyways...... yes towels look to be nice quality.

Dude get a wool mitt. Don't waste your time on a MF mitt if you plan to use it on paint.
The dodo juice wool MITT is awesome. I'm sure there is other options as far as brand goes but wool is the best

I didn't think about their MIT. That mitt will work well for rims or customer cars right ?
