    Tipton carbon fiber rods are better in my opinion

    I've only used carbon fiber rods for the 17's and 204's but I thought they sucked. Are they better in larger diameter rods?

    I love my coated Deweys and Tiptons but have been real hesitant to try a larger carbon fiber rod when I hate the 17 caliber CF rod I have.

    I haven't used small caliber ones. But, I use the same Tipton that works very well for 6br-300WM.

    I have some Tipton and also Dewey's. If I was to buy more I would order the Boretech rods. Their rods and bore guids are the nuts!!

    Well I have a bore guide coming from mike Lucas as we speak. Just curious about these two rods. Mike lucas recommend the Dewey rod 30c44 I believe the part number was. But found they have the aluminum version rod too. Same part number except for one letter. I believe it is a 30ca44 or something like that.
