They call these Tipton 1-piece carbon fiber cleaning rods ";deluxe"; because they feature an ergonomically designed handle that spins on two sets of ball bearings - the result is a cleaning rod that smoothly follows the rifling both pushing and pulling, even while under pressure. The ";shank-through"; construction also allows the user to apply ";reasonable"; hammer blows to the end of the cleaning rod to get a tight patch through a bore. These rods are chemical resistant, will not scratch the bore like a steel rod can and will not embed like a coated rod can.

This rod is probably the best one yet.The Carbon Fiber won't damage the barrel.
The rod's very robust in strength, but it gives without the chance of bending the rod.
I should use a bore guide too, but at least you don't have to worry about the rod
damaging the bore, although keeping it straight in the bore is probably just as important--
even with a carbon fiber rod. Trying not to go completely OCD. I fired thousands of rounds
out of an M16 that was already old when I got it in the Army and cleaned it using cheap disposable rods--
it fired sub moa on a good day at three hundred meters--all day at 100m. Maybe that was all the chrome
bore--I'm not a gunsmith.
Not sure how much force it would take to break the rod--I'll try not to find out,
but I wouldn't worry too much about snapping it--robust is an accurate description.
The handle is robust as well, feels solid and heavy in a good way, and it spins like it's
rolling on precision bearings.
I'm also not sure how long the threads for the jags and brushes will last. Connecting
fiber to brass or other metals is always a concern. The piece that holds the jags and brushes is
solid brass--which I like. Coating similar to their coated jags might provide a slight
improvement to an already great design.
My only complaint might be the lack of choices in the actual length of the rod.
I didn't check other sites prior to ordering.
I know I have a couple of applications for which this rod will probably be too short,
but I got tired of measuring and shopping.
Please be very carful when ordering. You have to pick both length and bore diameter. And it is not very clear on some of the discriptions which size you are getting. Took me two tries to get the correct rod.
