Chemical Guys Grey Matter Waffle Weave Car Drying Towel First Impressions

Nearing the mid of November the DMV's temperature were in the mid-seventies.  It was the perfect time to wash my car, and I got to use for the first time the Chemical Brothers new-ish(?) microfiber drying cloth.  With that let's push the button on this review, and I won't hold back.

Initial thoughts are it is very easy to pull over the car.  Even one handed.  A yellow microfiber would have much more resistance.   It doesn't seem to put the same pressure down, so tricks of using a last coat, quick wax/wash type of product don't produce the same luster as you would find after using it with a yellow microfiber.

I am not sure it is bad though, it would take me two large microfibers to get through the same amount of drying as the same sized Grey Matter.  I found that I could apply a bit of pressure as needed to work with problem areas.

Overall a very nice experience drying the car.  I wouldn't throw away your other microfiber drying towels the way microfiber drying towels supplanted cotton but I would consider adding one or two of these towels as needed.
