I'm getting 50% extraction with an old top load

Test as follows:

Small towel weight dry = 61g
Soak and wring it out by hand 149g
Difference - 88g
weight after 5 min spin = 105
Water extracted = 149 - 105 = 44g
So 44 out of 88g = 50%

Would be great if someone else did a test on a high spin modern machine

The tested RPM is about 600 on this old machine
