Review: So ive been using this swab for a couple months now and it hasn't let me down . Its made of microfiber which is an awesome material . its is very soft so it wont scratch anything and it is very absorbent . It folds and fits into your pocket to bring out onto the field .

A couple things that bother me is the diameter of the swab itself . If you compare it to a redz stick it is very skinny . when you swab with the redz stick you can feel the swab wiping the whole inner surface of the barrel . When you swab with the microfiber it feels loose , and doesn't feel like its swabbing everything ( even though it does ) . maybe its just personal preference but i don't like how it feels like it can fall through the barrel with just a little shove.

Another thing is how absorbent this material is . this material is SUPER absorbent . one swab and your barrel is like new . thats is a good thing and a bad thing .. well .. for me anyways .. one day i was using some white box paint and i was getting barrel breaks all day long . when this material is saturated with paint it doesnt wipe clean like other swabs . with other swabs you can take a towel to the swab to get most of the paint out and continue using it all day long . with this swab , if you want to wipe it off with a towel to get most of the paint off, the micfofiber is so absorbent that it doesnt wipe off as easily . it kinda just stays in the swab . sure all the surface paint is gone off the swab but the fibers still leave a greasy feeling in the barrel . so i guess buy 2 or just dont break paint as much as i did that day lol .

other than those two things this is an awesome swab . it gets your barrel super clean , its cheaper than the other high end swabs , it folds , it wont unravel and its washable .
Conclusion: Buy it .
Its cheap
it does its job
its washable
and it wont fall apart on you in a week or so ..
9 out of 10
