    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.

    I have both Dewey and Bore Tech. I prefer the Bore Tech BY FAR. It has a much nicer handle and it rotates effortlessly. As far as the coating is concerned, I've had no problems with the coating on the Bore Tech, but there are 3 or 4 places on the Dewey where it has come off.

    The J.Dewey rods are quality and also have good variety.
