Please help with a cleaning rod.....

Hello and thanks in advance,

Anyone have a recommendation for a cleaning rod for a longer barrel rifle? 33" barrel, Tipton, Dewey, or Bore Tech?

They all look pretty good which is the best?

Thanks
Frank

I'm a Dewey man, but I've never used the others so I can not comment.

Used both and had issues with the Bore Tech coating.

Went back to Dewey rods and their improved bearing system is great.

Either brand will probably treat you fine.
