May be worth a try. Since I use an Otis kit for cleaning, I already use the pull through cleaning method with their flex cables instead of rigid push rods.

I picked up some recently, I have not been to the range sine but will post when I do give them a try.
I'd rather be lucky than good any day
There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
I've used Patchworm kits for years, with great results. Not bulky, can't abrade the bore or crown, cheap, and does all calibers with each kit.

Interesting. I use bore snakes for quick cleaning of my barrels at the range or in situations where thorough cleaning is not possible or practical, but this looks like a system that could do basically the same thing.

Bore Snakes. Especially for the shotgun and 22. Semis that you don't want to fully breakdown every time.
Especially easy to pack in a plastic bag for humping the ground of the back country.
Cleaning rod and patch has always worked. The problem with cleaning rods stems from the military using steel rods and religiously spit-shining the bore until the rifling was damaged.

Bore snakes for me. I use 'em primarily to do a quick swab after a range session to get the majority of buildup and then a detail clean later.
The other thing I like 'em for is hunting. I keep one in my pack in case I slide down an embankment, or some such, and my muzzle gets fouled.
I think there was a thread on them earlier - IIRC, they tend to get ripped up in fairly short order.
That Patchworm looks really cool
So, so. For a rifle or pistol they are a pain in the arse. Stick with the bore snakes for light everyday cleaning.
I do like them for my double barrel shotguns as it really cuts down on using patches after scrubbing the bore.

I just bought one of the full kits with the range bag and cleaning mat.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
Did a full strip and clean on my mk 111 today I usually just run the bore snake thru it a couple of times. I was shocked at how much lead I got out. Guess I will have to be a little more diligent with the bore brush.
I am super cheap. I have an m16 steel rod milsurp kit someone gave me. I buy boresnakes because they are cheap and fit anywhere. I keep one in the handle of my ar, rangebag. etc.
