    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.

    aluminum rods will get grit and dirt imbedded in them vs steel or coated rods.

    Aluminum is the last material I would get in a rod!!

    Deweys rods are the best. Their coatings are hands down better than Boretech and customer service is way better than Boretech.

    I had 4 Boretechs lose their coating and only took me 6 months to replace them AFTER I sent them back to them. Had to call the president of Boreteck and complain twice. Sold the replacements as soon as I got them and went Dewey all the way.

    I will watch for that coating problem. So far it is good to go. The reason I prefered the Dewy's and Boretech over the Tiptons is that with a Dewy or BT I can put my hand on the back of the handle to push it through. The tipton has that metal end that roates with the rod and will not allow the rod to rotate freely when you push from the back.

    You can email Dewey if you have any questions. Great people to work with in my opinion. Brian Dewey actually handles the email and he helped me with some questions this winter. I bought directly from them. Real fast service.

    Perhaps I'm not scrubbing hard enough?
    I try to let the chemicals do the work.
    Simply gripping the handle works for me.

    seems that they did not like BoreTech Eliminator, peeled the coatings right off. Too bad it would not remove the copper from the barrel, but hell on wheels on their coatings.:D
