Default Good drying cloth?

What do you guys use to dry your car after washing it? I bought some drying cloths from Canadian Tire and they absolutely suck. I saw some leather ones but know nothing about them. Any suggestions? Cost isn't that important unless we're talking $100+.

Thanks.

I use an amour all (not sure how to spell it) shammy (its not leather, its more of like a spongy kinda shammy)...I got over as many flat spots of the car as I can with that, then I just use a regular towel to pick up the residual water...

I use the absorber pretty sure I got it at CTC. No lint and the secret is you need to keep it wet. Been using the same one for 5 years.

I bought Walmarts Ultra Premium Shammy/Towel and it works great.
