Two in a package. 1 straight and the other has a bend in the middle for putting in your pocket and taking it out on the field. Built with a strong lightweight plastic stick with a soft non-pilling fleece swab wrap. It soaks up the paint and is built to last.
The Redz Barrel Swab Kit is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Pull-Throughs - Don't really clean as well, because they don't have furrys on them.

Cleans barrel well
just soak in water to clean off
sometimes the fibers get stuck in porting
The battle swab is a great tool for cleaning barrels. If you have a break, you don't even have to unscrew the barrel like you would a pull-through. Just swab it, wipe of the swab with your jersey, and keep going. When you get home for the day, you just run it under water and towel dry it, and it's ready to go.
The only problem I have experienced is sometimes the fibers get caught on the barrel porting. This doesn't efect much, since after one shot it is out, but I guess it can be construed as a weakness.
I say get it, it's better and easier to clean breaks with than a pull-through.

Quality, cleans barrels extremely well, can wash it under running water without falling apart
This barrel swab kit is one of the best on the market. The price is just right. Granted there are cheaper swabs available but none of those have as good of quality. These things will clean your barrel no problem.
The only thing is that when they are brand new they will leave some fuzz in the barrel and the marker. But that is easily taken care of. You can get the fuzz off by wetting the swab down under running water then take your hand and close it around the swab and run it down the length of the swab. You will notice that the water and the fuzz will come off together. Repeat this several times. Once you do this you will notice that it will leave less and less fuzz in your barrel as you use it.
I love this swab set and will never use anything else. If you purchase one you wont be disappointed.

Cleans barrels well
The ravel design in weak and will unravel with time
Loses fibers everywhere
At first, I loved this squeegee. It cleaned everything, no problems. Then it started leavin behind little fibers everywhere. And soon the whole thing came unraveled. Now its just a stick I use to push out my bolt after field stipping. [taking up space, taking up space, taking up space]
Dont get it. For the same price, you can get the CP Micro Fiber Squeegee. Will not fall apart on you. Soaks up EVERYTHING
Gets the job done quickly, and cleans your barrel within seconds.
The bendable swab breaks in half after a while, and the cloth peels off.
Overall, this is a good product, however it doesn't last long. After couple months of use, the red fibery-cloth started to peel off, which makes it so difficult to put it through your barrel. Also the two piece flexible swab broke in half about a month. This is not that big of a problem, it is very easy to just put it back together.
Overall, I'd give this product a 4. I was expecting something that would last long just like a pull-through squeegee.

None as of yet!
One of the better battle swabs I have used. Cleans out your barrel very well due to the very absorbent material. As long as you arn't spitting goo out your barrel every other shot, this swab will due wonders for your barrel.
I have also found that the swab fits very nicely in your pants pocket, and doesn't stab, poke, or jab you every step you make.
My only real problem with the swab listed here is after several games of use I have found that it is hard to clean at times. Not every time, but just at times. I have found it best to use a 50/50 mixture of hot water and detergent to clean the swab. I just dip, and dunk till clean, then allow to air dry! Yet then again it might be the paint I shoot at different intervals.
A good sturdy swab that will do as promised.

That's it, that's my main marker, pistolier all the way!
- Good value for money spent
- Easy to use
- Easy to maintain
- No way to fasten it
- Holds on to dirt and gravel
- Fibres will flak off
The Good Stuff about this Barrel Swab Kit
- Excellent value for money spent. This can be subjective depending on how lose you are with your money. To be more specific then, if you compare the price of this swab kit versus other squeegees then,... for the price, this is a sweet purchase.
- Unlike a stick squeegee or pull through (if you need to do it in a quickly in the middle of a game), this thing requires absolutely no special skill and no special knowledge to use: Just stick the swab in, and pull it out. It's that simple.
The Bad Stuff about this Barrel Swab Kit
- Straight away, this is not nearly as good as pull throughs and such. You are still going to have to pull this swab through your barrel at least thrice to get a good clean going. Relatively speaking, a good well maintained pull through that is used probably should be able to get a barrel clean enough to shoot straight after only one pull.
- It is totally impratical for use in tournament play. There's nothing to fasten the swab on to your marker (depending on the size and shape of your marker setup), or on your person (fine you can bend it in half, but you *will* end up losing it in the middle of a game that way)
- If you do drop this thing on the floor (ie. during tournament play), good luck cleaning the swab itself. Dirt and gravel and such will stick to the fibres tenaciously. Nothing short of running this thing under warm water will clean everything out, but then the swab itself would be soaking wet, so it'll still be useless.
- The fibres will flak off when you start using the swab brand new. This is very minor flaw as after a few uses you don't get more flakings.
If you want a good quality swab kit for casual play, and for *after* tournamet play; this is the best purchase ever!
If you are playing in a tournament, and you want sometime fast. A good pull through or stick squeegee will give you better playability and better over-performance.

soon to come: T-board w/ eyes 25 or 50g switch and if im to fast a z board for eggy and also a madman valve
Good for barrel bust in middle of a match
Doesnt get paint completely out like a pull thru squegee
good for speed ball wen u hav a teardrop barrel bust will kill u so i really needed this bad. its good for barrel busts but buy a pull tru like the NEWER VL 1 so u can get paint completely out of it wen ur done wit the game reloading and such. well uhhh is that 50 words i sure hope so ... blah blah blah... blah.. blah... hair does get in holes but they dont affect performance at all they shoot rite out trust me.
buy it if u play speedball and have a SP barrel (these dont like liquid in there barrels at all) 9 since it dont get paint completely out

cleans paint out of barrel pretty good
its red, and red is secksy
fuzz kinda comes off
has to be wiped off befor u can use it again
This is the best squeege out of the ones that i have used. it does wat its supposed to. only thing is, u have to wipe it off on your shirt or something before u can use it again or u will end up with more paint in ur barrel. it is pretty cheap, i picked my up for less than 9 bucks. sometimes the fuzz comes off in ur barrel, but if u just blow into your barrel, they will usually come out.
great squeegie. i would highly recommend it. cleans out your barrel very well just like its supposed to. 9/10 cuz the fuzz comes off.

Doesnt come with a squeegee.
These battle swabs are great, I use both all the time. I tried other ones and they fail in comparison. The only thing that they lack is a real squeegee in this kit. If They had one this kit would be perfect. They clean the barrel very nicely, and they wash out easy. I accidentaly left it in my squeegee pocket once and it went through the wash (caught it before it went into the dryer) and it was like new again. I love these. I tried some VL ones... The VL ones literally fell apart when they got paint on them. These have never failed me. The collapsible one usually goes with me on the field, and the stick swab usually stays in my gear bag for home cleaning. I like the fact that they sell both types together, makes it easier on us to decide what to buy.
If you want some of the best barrel swabs out there these are exactly what you are looking for. The fit in your pocket, and they look good too. If your in the market for a new barrel swab or two get these.
