2. Have MICROFIBER towels. Not shammys. The shammys don't get the water off the disc as well, and they deposit any dirt or grime on the shammy onto the disc. Microfibers pull off dirt, grime, and water. Especially helpful if your disc ends up in the mood. For my money, shammys are worthless.
Can't disagree more, use your towels for cleaning off the mud and grime and the Chamois for drying. I've played in multiple tournaments this year that had rain, lots of rain. And when everyone on my card would start complaining about not being able to get a disc dry with their microfiber towels I'd laugh.
Then I'd wring out all the water in my chamois and grab there disc and give it a quick wipe down and hand it back. They couldn't believe how dry their disc was when I handed it back. Some guys would see what I had and would say why didn't I ever think of that those things suck up water like nothing else!! Just don't buy cheap imitations get the real deal.
Now I will concede that if you carry enough (5 in your case I guess) microfiber towels they might be as effective as a single chamois.
