Product Description

Carbon fiber is well-suited to the tough tasks assigned to cleaning rods. It combines the best features of stainless steel and coated cleaning rods, then adds valuable properties of its own. Stainless steel rods can scratch or wear barrels if they're used carelessly - though they won't pick up potentially damaging small abrasive particles. -InchCoated-Inch rods get part of the job done - they keep the stainless steel shaft from damaging your barrel's rifling, but the coating will pick up small abrasive particles, which means you're effectively running fine-grit sandpaper through your bore. Carbon fiber rods are the best of both: the carbon fiber can't scratch your bore like stainless steel, and they won't embed like coated rods. Plus, Carbon Fiber rods can be bent to an extreme degree and return to their original straightness.Rifle rods are threaded for 8-32 accessories, except 17 caliber rods which are threaded 5-40.

Make sure you get one that is the minimum length for your rifles. The 36" rod is much too long for the rifles I use it on. It makes it unweildy and flexes and bows way too much and is a general pain in the butt. A 30" rod would have been much better for me. Other than that it is a good product...

I bought this for cleaning my AR-15 and it does the job perfectly. Does a good job of guiding my bore brush for scrubbing and for guiding patches. Tipton stuff is of excellent quality, highly recommended.

Tipton rods are great quality, however, I bought this to clean a .22 and .243. On the .22, it fits but is too snug for my liking. Prefer something that provides a bit more clearance between the barrel and rod.

5 stars for the .243
2 stars for the .22

I have two of these rods. One for my .17 rifles and this one to cover everything bigger. The only possible drawback is that it's may be too short for cleaning a long barreled target rifle when using a long bore guide. It's plenty long though for cleaning a 26" barreled long action rifle without a long guide.

Used on a .223 it works out well. The rod is long enough for typical AR. Bearings are smooth and twists with the rifling. Nice ergonomic handle. Would recommend!

Only drawback is the size brushes and patch holder it will support. The threaded size is smaller than the normal and I've yet to find a commerical fit. I do cut the thread down in my shop and it works fine. Just an irritant when it could be the "normal" size.

This is the best cleaning rod you will ever buy. It is expensive for a cleaning rod, however, after having bunch of mix and match of several brands, this is the one that I always pick for cleaning. It is longer than your standard cleaning rods that you see at sporting goods store, but it will clean almost all long barrel rifles.

Update (9th Feb 2014)
Unfortunately, the cleaning rod broke from the brass tip in less than a year. I called the Battenfield Technologies (owners of Tipton brand) and they agreed to send me a replacement for free of charge. I will see how long the replacement will last. So, 5 stars for customer service and minus 2 stars for product.

This is a great quality cleaning rod, and well worth the price. My only complaint isn't about the rod, but rather, the options section, for selecting rod lenght. I went through all the procedures to select the longest rod lenght they had in the length options, and was charged for the 43.75" rod, but when it arrived, it was the 36" rod with a 42.25" overall lenght. I'm a bit confused by that, and left with uncertainty and confusion regarding my purchase; however, with proper care, this rod should last a lifetime, and I'm happy about that! Thanks Tipton!
