Nanoskin AutoScrub products?

Does anyone have any experience with their fine grade wash mitt or fine grade foam pad? They say it's supposed to be a replacement for clay bar's, but I've not heard much about them.

Product links below:

They work well, very similar to the speedy prep towel. Just make sure you use the "clay bar" side after washing the non-bonded contaminates off first.

I've also used the foam pad and its just like buffing out a panel but without as many passes. Also, it's hard to get into close areas.

SpeedFreak Brian has used the products. He says they can be used many times more than a clay bar, so the initial expense is recovered.

I have the fine grade wash mitt and have used it on several cars. It is absolutely worth every penny. Since buying it, I have not picked up a piece of clay and do not plan on switching back as it saves me so much time.

I use my wash mitt with Optimum no rinse as the lube. The best part about the nanoskin is that if I ever drop it on the floor i can just rinse it off whereas clay would have to be thrown out.
