Go with the Dewey. YOu can custom order them with extensions any length you want. Last ones I got were $44 shipped.

Boretechs have great handles but absolutely crappy coatings that peel like crazy and takes forever to get them replaced.

Never had (or heard) a Dewey peeling, but boretech that is common

Another vote for Dewey. I also have several SS rods that I bought before I knew better. I believe that a coated rod is much a better material to be rubbing against the riflings that SS.
