By my opinion is that plush MF's for drying paint have more give if you've got a small bit of dirt so less chance at marring/scratching the paint.

With a waffle weave, the dirt has nowhere to go.
That is a very good point, but surely at the point of these being used the dirt should be gone?

I have an Uber at high GSM, my objective has been to fully dry each section with one pass. I do use Tango drying aid, where less is more.

The New AF Duo after Edgeless such a great small option.

I don't like waffle weave on paint. I moved to MF towels some years ago. I just use the weave towel for glass now.

It'll be because it's Costco and officially supposed to be for trade.

Least you wouldn't need to buy any new drying towels for a while

First one I ever bought was 15yrs ago under recommendation from a pro detailer. In fact, I still have it. Let me add "NO" before asked as its not my only one.
I bought two more year or two ago and they are not as good in my opinion, but do the job at times.
Only my preference, I only pat dry and they will do that forever maintain properly.
I have moved on to Gtechniq MF4 which is a modern and Magnet and works better than anything else I have tried and used being a pat dry man.

I honestly would not use those big heavy mega absorbent towels others like to drag for all the obvious reasons. To me anyway
I agree they have their place, I use them for glass, not an issue, for paint, i dont drag I lay pat and then move on, no dragging non at all that is the safest way in my oppinion second to an air dryer
