Products Used:
I've used squeegees:
-Zap squeegee - It's more convenient to throw down your barrel, as it just bends and doesn't need any pressing :o
-Straight Shot squeegee - It fits on my Evil lanyard.
Marker Setup: Viewloader Prodigy
Pure Energy 68/4500
Ricochet 2K
Strengths: See Review Body.
Weaknesses: See Review Body.
Review: Strengths:
+ + + + + CLEANING:It cleans your barrel well and quickly. Absorbs paint, shell and everything that happens to be down there. It brings the slightest amounts into possible reach of the eyes and etc. if there's no ball in the breech, which could gum up the eyes and cause more problems. Usually it cleans them more than anything if they're dirty.
+ + + + COST: $5 Canadian. Pretty good, I'd say.
+ + + + EASE OF USE: Much easier to use than squeegees and cleans better, much faster than those hoses with discs and junk on them and doesn't need the barrel to be taken off.
+ + + CLEANABLE: Just wrinse them out under tap water and leave to dry.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - -EVERY ONE OF THEM WILL BREAK!!!! I have bought at least 10 of these swabs. Let me tell you something: Every single time, with NO exceptions, I have broken one of these. Either it snaps in two or more pieces (that can happen by dropping them), or one half is pulled out of the flexy part, or the fabric part unwraps.

Actually, there was one exception to breaking one every day I play. I broke 2 once.
Conclusion: They are the pire merde of the swab world. They are too brittle to last more than one day of pball. Really, really not worth it.

You do know that if half comes out of the rubber thing, you can just put it back in...?
