He asked if there was something else he should look at. I am grateful to the person who introduced me to the convenience of the cables, so I happily share for others to look at as an option.

I just use Dewey coated metal rods. I donít see what the benefit of a carbon rod would be, and a cable wouldnít do the job as good as a rod, especially for break in procedures.

Thumbs up

I use a combination of Otis flex cables and stainless cleaning rods. Ivy stainless cleaning rods with chamber guides from Bore Rider Barrel Care Products. To make sure that cables are not touching the rifling l just need to remember to pull them centered and out the muzzle. Good luck with whatever you decide to get.

I should have double checked my post. To clarify l do not use cables or rods at the same cleaning session l use them depending on where l am. In hunting camp l just take an Otis cable due to how compact they are.

Yes they made some great products. Unfortunately they have retired from the business.

See Wolverine is still listed as a dist for Parker Hale, they did have some rods in the store in 2016. I bought a new 22 rod while I was there. Certainly use that over a carbon rod of unknown hardness or construction. I've got 4 or 5 of the Parker rods.

I have/use Dewey rods most, but since trying Pro Shot (from Nordic Marksman out east) they're my go-to now. I haven't replaced the Dewey ones, but anything new going forward=Pro Shot

Never tried one, what do you like better about them? I order quite a bit of stuff from Nordic so would be easy to add a rod to next order.

If there was a third choice, Tipton has also been excellent in my experience

These rods are not coated, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, the fact that no debris can embed in them, is a good thing.

Thanks!
I did a lot of black powder shooting mostly 54 cal.Of course with very few shots the barrel was badly fouled.The wood rod,that came installed with the rifle, was not a good choice for cleaning.The danger of breakage, and injury very possible.A guided stainless steel rod,near indistructable.A coated guided rod,stainless,will provide safety,get the job done as it should be,and give years of service.A otis pull thru, gives convenience at the range,and on hunting trips. A very compact carry for all calibers,includeing shotguns,and sidearms.
