They are great! I have 3 of them, .284, .308, and .338. They are very stout rods and you never have to deal with blue patches due to the brass on other rods.

I have two and use them for my .257 Weatherby Magnum and my 7mm STW.

I love them & would highly recommend them.

Good to hear, are they pretty stiff? I will have 22-338 cal covered.
