    Re: It`s here! Griots new edgeless PMF drying towel.

    I really like the GG PFM`s. I have several and use them on my Audi. Not sure if there is anything better - or noticeably better out there. However, I was at a a NJ detailer`s shop a coupe of weeks ago and bought a large Adam`s MF and have no complaints with that either.

    Yep.. Got 2 of these, like the mid. size for trunk, roof, hood.
    The 16x16 gets the rest. Some times I use the 9x16 detail towel PFM for the intricate grill on my Malibu.

    Re: It`s here! Griots new edgeless PMF drying towel.

    I know it`s a big stretch to say one MF towel looks like another but my first thought was that this looks nearly identical to the one I just saw in one of Scott`s videos from Dallas Paint Correction. Seems he has his own line of towels now and his drying towel looks exactly the same. Anyone else have the same thought?

    Please don`t get me wrong. I`m not insinuating anything. That was just the first thought that popped in my head. Looks like a great towel but I have a hard time with larger towels. This would probably be great for the initial drag to dry method and then go back around with a smaller towel.

    Is this the one you are referring to from Advanced Auto Parts?

    I bough one from Advance Auto Parts on sale on line and it was not as thick as the one I bought from AG. Works fine though. Most of the water is blown off so a normal microfiber towel or two usually does the job for me. I’ve got one of the AG Big Blue drying towels and I can say it has held up very well.

    Clarification, please You`re saying that the PFM from Advance differs from the PFM from AG?

    I`m still not on the bandwagon, but I am curious enough to want to know!

    Mine was. The PFM from AG was a thicker, better quality towel. No idea why except maybe it cost less. I believe Griots is still selling PFMs through Advance. I bought mine online so I did not see it until delivered. I would not buy another through Advance.

    Could be two different lines. The cheaper price point for parts stores and the premium versions for themselves and boutique places like PBMG

    With as many towels that are available out there would not surprise me

    Interesting ... the large towels from Advanced (silver w/teal border) feel and appear to be the same thinkness and quality of the 2-Pack of 16" towels I purchased through Autopia.

    I know Griot`s has bumped up the GSM on at least the larger PFM`s, I think the 16x16`s too. I don`t remember what they were when they were released though, was it like 850?
    The silver/teal drying towel in the AG Outlet store doesn`t list the GSM.

    *Edit, just checked - The blue detailing PFM`s are 1120 also.*
    *Edit again - Google tells me they were 860gsm*

    I thought it was strange also. I left a comment in the Advance Auto comment section about the towels. They advertised the sizes wrong also when I bought mine. Advance Auto allows customers to ask questions similar to the way Amazon does and Iíve advise other customers about the towels being the wrong advertised size and quality. Itís been about 18 months since Iíve bought the towels so things may have changed. Hopefully.

    Huh, that`s some, uhm...confusion. Guess they`re closing out the lighter ones.
