Best Waffle Weave Drying Towels

What do you guys think of these waffle weave drying towels?

It's the best deal I found on Amazon and looks decent. Had similar towels for nearly 10 years(have 6-8 towels I rotated for once a week car wash) now and they are ready for retirement.

I have those and they're okay, but I think I'd need 4-6 of them to properly dry a car. I am a big fan of Zwipes in general.

I bought these, but haven't tried them yet

I've gone through a few different drying towels. The first was a 'Shammy' but I was also worried about scratches with it, would dry hard as a rock, and constantly had to squeeze out water from it. I then got a drying towel from Advance and still had to squeeze water from it multiple times during the drying process. Next I got Adam's Polishes Waffle Weave drying towel at their booth at the Palm Beach Cars & Coffee event and that was much better. I would only have to squeeze water from it only a few times. I finally took the jump a few months ago and got Adam's Polishes best drying towel and it is AMAZING. I can dry the entire car and then some without having to squeeze any water from it. It is that absorbent!

I usually use two of them to dry the whole car(g20 330i). The car has been coated with Serum Light and EXO so that may reduce the amount of water on the car after a wash.

This has been by far the best drying towel i've used. Can do a whole car and not have to ring it out.

Have to try those out someday.

A local detailer we work with recommended these so we are giving these a try as well:
