The inside is used to clean your grooves and clean your clubs. There’s a pocket on the inside of the towel that has two different textures. There’s an abrasive microbrush surface that serves as a replacement for your grooves brush and then a second surface to wipe the club clean. The microbrush surface is like a synthetic steel wool that does a great job of cleaning the grooves. I’m still mystified at how they were able to incorporate the grooves brush into the towel. At first I thought it was two pieces of cloth sewn together, but it’s not. Somehow, they were able to stitch the abrasive surface into the inside of the towel and still leave the outside for wiping your face or whatever..
One of my biggest complaints about having a towel and a groove brush on the bag is that all the time, the steel side of the groove brush catches the towel and creates an annoying tangle that usually results in a rip in my golf towel, usually on the “clean” area reserved for my face. The Spotless Swing towel eliminates that problem as well as the need for a “clean” area of a towel.. the entire outside is now reserved for that! 🙂 Also, the grooves brushes suck because after a couple of uses, the steel gets all tangled together and you end up trying to clean your grooves with a block of metal with a couple of stray strands that typically prick your fingers when you’re not paying attention.
Something else I really liked about the towel is the size. You ever experience playing golf after a big rain and when you go to wipe your clubs, you find that the tires from the cart have splashed mud and water all over your newly laundered towel? Happens to me all the time and it’s one of the most infuriating experiences. The Spotless Swing is long enough to serve it’s purpose while being short enough to stay in the “splash free” zone.
Back to the Microbrush surface, it does a thorough job of cleaning the grooves and unlike a wire brush, it doesn’t scratch up your clubs. I’m hitting the 2009 TaylorMade Burner Irons and they have a beautiful sleek gun metal finish and about three weeks ago, I was idly scrubbing the grooves on my six iron with a wire brush and when I looked down at the club face, I had ruined the finish by adding a billion or so scratches.. I was relieved to find out that the towel didn’t do the same.
The towel will run you about $19.95, it comes in graphite black or classic red and they’re going to be releasing other colors down the road. The towel is machine washable, although they recommend you don’t wash it with fabric softener. There’s also a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so if the towel doesn’t meet your expectations, they’ll gladly give you a full refund.
Check it out, I’m certain you won’t be disappointed.
