    Glad you found a good choice at a good price! And that`s interesting about how the then/now prices compare.

    I used variations on that theme for years before MG came out. I *NEVER*, not once, got all the water off with anything like those. ALWAYS had to follow up with a (at that time cotton) towel. Threw all my chamois, real and synthetic, away and never missed `em for a moment.

    Try something modern, as in MicroFiber, and you`ll never look back.

    And I bet they still work just as well now as they ever did. Well, no good for Drying, but for anything else they`re still fine.

    You are correct Accumulator that these "loops" catch on sharp body corners and insignia emblems. I have had to "trim" off some of the snags to keep them from snagging even more. It is a trade-off for a drying towel that works extremely well.

    By the way, the PFM is NOT an abbreviation for or reference to the chemical or physical make-up of the microfiber material, but means "Pure Frickin` Magic" according Griot`s Garage marketing description, kind of like a trade-name catch phrase.

    The PFM works SO well I`m willing to risk snagging. I find that if I simply watch what I`m doing I won`t get any snagging on emblems and such
    Treat it like it`s the only one in the world.

    I love the pfm and similar looped type drying towels but I moved over to TRC Gauntlets and I like them more.
