What drying towels do you guys use?

this is talked about much. im curious what people are using for the drying towels?
i can get very picky since ive used alot of different brands including amazon products. some leaves streaks and some gets lint all over the car.
im currently use Adams Polish drying towels but curious what everyone else is using.

Currently using Griotís Garage Terry Weave Drying Towel and Rag Company Double Twistress. Very happy with the results from both towels.

I've been using the original Absorber chamois since 1990. They work great and don't leave any swirl marks or scratches like a microfiber towel can.

I actually bought an electric leaf blower to blow off most of the water, then finish with the Gyeon Silk drying towels

+1 - leaf blower or air is hands down the best approach. For any water left behind, most decent microfiber drying towels will do the trick.
