ALL THE DISKS AND THE SWAB ARE HUGE, DON'T FIT THRU ANY BARREL
i was pretty happy when i got this squeegee for $5 at av. then it came and i took it to the field and had to squeegee, so i pulled it out and the damn thing wouldn't even fit thru my barrel, not thru my all american, not thru my freak, the swab at the end was huge along with all the disks, so some guys at the field thought i was weak and just didn't have the strength to get it thru, they tried and they too, failed. then one time i pulled it thru my barrl and all the disks ripped off cuz they were too big too. so i went home and trimmed the beaver on the bush on the end and thought it was ready to go, but nope still to big, finally AFTER 4 HOURS OF BUSH TRIMMING i finally got it thru my barrel, now it works :) but at first it sucked. SO UNLESS YOU WANT TO CLEAN OUT A SHOTGUN BARREL, MABYE EVEN A SEWER, OR ANY PIPE OVER 1 FOOT IN DIAMATER, DON'T GET THIS SQUEEGEE, IT TERRIBLE. STUPID XTREME RAGE GUYS, DON'T YOU KNOW THAT PAINTBALL BARRELS AREN'T 3 INCHES IN DIAMETER?????
DON'T BUY UNLESS YOU HAVE 4 HOURS TO GO AND TRIM ITS BUSH!!!! I'll give it a 2 cuz now it works :oP
Has a nasty habit of scratching the interior of the barrel
I got this squeegee and before I used it, I lent it to a friend cause he was playing a game this weekend and I wasn't. When he got back to me, he said that he hated it and it was really hard to pull through the barrel. I didn't really see the problem. I brought it home and gave it a few tough tugs and it came right out of my barrel no problem... I guess that extra time in the high school weight room paid off.
If you have problems pulling it out, my suggestion is to have your friend grab the barrel and hold it while you pull it out of the other end. Trimming is unneccessary.
The only thing I didn't like about this barrel is that it left large nasty scratchs on the inside of my barrel.
Takes a lot of muscle but definately worth it considering the final product. I recommend a little water or lube on the squeegee so it doesnt scratch.
Way too big for any barrel. Had to trim and trim to get thru.
Overall, it works well after you do some maintenance and give it a haircut. The first time it got stuck and tried to back it out and the disks came off. I had to run a dowel thru it to get them out. The pieces scattered and I was a little frustrated trying to find them all and rethread them.
Get something else unless you like to give haircuts. It works but requires some maintenance.
Well, if you can get it through your barrel, it'll be a perfect clean. If you can't, its probably because:
-It doesn't fit
-Brush left lint deposits
If you don't trim this, odds are you will be cleaning more then shooting. If you have this product, I suggest you trim it PERFECTLY to your barrel. Also make sure the wire covering isn't damaged. If it is, tape it up or something so it doesn't get worse.
Do not buy this. A squadbuster has a higher durability than this.
Do not buy this. It'll break easily and will take a lot of time to make it work.
I bought this thinking that it was going to be a well made product. The first barrel that I tried it in was a Dye Stainless. The rubber discs would not go through the barrel so I tried to pull it out backwards and it fell apart inside my barrel. I spent about and hour picking all the parts out without scratching the barrel. Then I tried it in my Armson. I got it in there but it took two guys pulling the thing and me holding the barrel to get it all the way through. I have tried it in my stock Tippmann barrel and that works ok but that isn't saying much.

Hard to Pull through
Well i needed a squeege so i looked around i found this one it was cheap so i was like hey why not. So when i received it and tried to pull it through the barrel it was hard as heck. Bit i sanded the little rings so its easier to pull through and still cleans most of the paint out. But i Lost it a couple months later and cannot find it.

You can run this through your barrel one time and pull everything out, pepole complain that it is a bit big, which means you have to pull it that much harder to put it through your barrel.
it does get a little stuck, but these oversized disks have that much more compression with the inside of the barrel, pulling that much more "slime" out, ive used these on a barrel that was spotless, well guess what... wasnt really spotless, i got a light film out.
This is an amazing little squeegee that i got with my GTI it works very well.

Its a squeegee. It cleans the barrel.
I don't see why having a clean barrel is a weakness?
Mine's ok. Gets the paint out. Nothing's broke. I guess these peopole are using really small bore barrels. Rubber squeeges are the best. Only problem is that it doesn't clean the barrel totally with one swipe and with only one swipe it leaves a small residue of paint. Needs a fuzzy squeegee to finish what it started.
Long durabila works great in 14" barrel 16" long great get one today

This is probably the best squeegee I've used.
1. Cleans well - The disks are big, but they will fit through a barrel. The disk size makes it a tight fit, but that won't stratch your barrel because it's rubber; the tight fit allows a the disks to clean all paint out of the barrel.
There's also a little opening on the end of the squeegee so you can put cloth in there or whatever you want to clean a little better; I don't use it, though, because it cleans well enough already,
I really reccommend this squeegee. It's got a tight fit to clean well, and can fit in a pocket.
