This is my first proper review.

Purchased from http://www.i4detailing.co.uk/acatalog/D ... wel_1.html. At this price seems quite good value given size etc.

First impressions are that it has an unusual look and feel.

Its quite thick but not plush unlike drying other drying towels. It is also weighty more so than a CG Miracle dryer.


Ok onto the drying.

The car was washed using CG GLOSSWORKZ and rinsed. It must be noted that this shampoo is not the best at sheeting so there was a fair amount of water left to mop.

Image

The towel just wicked the water when placed on the bonnet (dry), so the pat drying method works well when damp otherwise it can leave water spots.

Image


Pulling the towel across the body work also worked well when damp. I was worried it may drag and marr but it felt very smooth. I did however need to ring it out once, but again this may be down to the amount of water left after the rince. I found it didn't leave water lines where it had passed.


Hope you enjoyed my first review :?:

Nice review. That water should sheet away better with a broad stream from a watering can or similar.

Agreed, I normally put a tap attachement on the hose for free running water. However I have missed placed it in may haste to get the wash done.

Thanks for the write up - I've been toying with the idea of trying these for a while.

Haven't been brave enough to try them yet as I love my Miracle Driers and ultra plush towels!

I hate using waffle weave so don't know if I will get on with them or not :?

That is a good review and the level of detail in the pictures is really helpful.

So it worked well then.
It looks totally different to the picture on I4 tbh, looks very similar to the new AS towel.

Thanks astormatt, I am new to this site having been in the closet for some months!, never came across this abbreviation before.

I was interested as I bought one of the Dri-U-Kwik cloths last summer when they were showing some of their products prior to their launch. I must say i am very impressed with the drying aspect on the small 40x40 I bought, cost me at the show I think 4 quid as a special. Looking at the comments here, I can confirm that it has been brill!, no scratching and in fact it seems to buff as it dries.

Jack
