How about this. Dry the car at 100mph. LOL!!!! Don't have to worry about swirls that way.
J/K. I do dry it by driving though.

I used Zaino last time and it worked well. Pinnacle is awsome but cost 20 bucks a bottle. The absorber swirled the hell out of my black car-I use microfibre only to dry it now and use a microfibre mitt to wash it.

the absorber is nothing but trouble.....i used it on my old grand prix for a couple dries and hated it.....ive come to the conclusion NOTHING will touch my car other than microfiber......microfiber sponge, i use microfiber towels to dry, microfiber applicator pads and microfiber towels to remove the wax......as for dish soap dont use it to wash you car with regularly, only if you are going to be clay barring, polishing and waxing alone with it, speaking of detailing, does anyone know when it is to COLD outside to do a full detail on the car (wash, clay bar, polish and wax)....i wanted to get it done before the winter but with school and work i havent gotten a chance and its around 55 here now.

The Absorber is actually a good tool to have around. I have owned a couple, and as MrLuos pointed out, it can be used for windows, wipe interior. etc...
As detailing becomes more advanced or people become more knowledgeble (me included) you realize that all new stuff coming out makes old stuff obsolte if you will
Nowadays, people favor the Microfiber Waffle Weave Towels over the Absorber to dry your paint finish. Why? because the Absorber can easily trap debris, and fine particles that can scratch your finish as you dry. The Absorber is a synthetic material, and doesn't offer much cushion between itself and the paint surface, whereas the mmicrofiber is a lot softer, and particles will get cushioned into the towel
Of course a good and thourough washing technique will eliminate said particles to show as you wash you dry your car...

IMO the absorber would create swirls with no contamination present. I believe its the material itself that is the problem. Micro fibre is all I use now. I was using the micro fibre from wal*mart (some packs have a softer edge then others) which is pretty good but I recently upgraded to Cobra micro fibre and the differance is quite apparent. The Cobra microfibre makes buffing wax off a piece of cake(because of the cross weave design of the fibres) and they have no sewn edges.
