Recommend a new cleaning rod?

The new Outer's, Hoppe's and Gunslicks don't impress me much.
What do you recommend?

Pro-Shot.

I like a good stainless rod that swivels easily.

I'm pretty sure Hoppes bought out Gunslick. I've got the shorter Hoppes pistol rod. It's single piece, carbon fiber rod, with a ball bearing handle. It's every bit as nice as my Tipton rod which is pretty much the same...single piece, carbon fiber rod, ball bearing handle.

Dewy makes a variety of rods. Some are nylon coated...which can wear off. Some are stainless...which I personally wouldn't choose.

What is it that you're looking for exactly?

I personally use a Tipton one piece that I have had for many years.

I didnt see any specific gun type, so:
Tipton 1 piece carbon fiber rod for long guns. I also have the multi piece setups in brass and an aluminum for handguns.
Various Otis ripcords and boresnakes too.

Iíve been using Montana Xtreme products.
Their stiff nylon brushes and coated stainless rods with bearing handles are the best Iíve found.

Not sure if they are sold separately, but I have lots of rods and kits acquired over the years and I now just use a few plastic Glock rods that came with pistols. The right length, slotted for patches and softer than steel.
Good luck.

I've used Pro-Shot one-piece stainless steel rods for many years.
For revolvers I bought brass cone shaped muzzle protectors that slip over the rods.
