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.
-CLeans fairly well
-bends in half easily
-pretty good price (each is roughly 5 bux)
-Need to twist the swab as you pull it out to get a good clean, sometimes more than once but it does a pretty good job
-Folding one does break in half after a while
-Expensive, though they are the best and 5 bux isnt too much for each one, it is overpriced, just like everything else in paintball. o well
-Fuzz gets caught in porting, and wont come out very easily.
Works well, and i suggest it. Best swab there is, but if you like jerk through then this wont really change your mind. for this reason, i give it a......
This set is very good for its price. it comes with 2 different cleaners. one long one and a short one. they clean very good and make the barrel spotless. the best way to clean off the swabs is to soak them in warm water and then let them air dry.
If you want a good cleaner for cheap then these are for you

cp asa on/off

cp roller trigger

Cleans very well
These barrel cleaners work almost perfectly. They last for a long time and can easily be cleaned and re-used. Sometimes the little fibers get caught in the portings of the barrel but that doesn't really matter it's just a notice. Although it is $15, it is worth every single penny of it.
I would recommend this barrel swab kit to everyone it cleans so nicely.
Doesn't give off fuzz (often)
Holds a lot of paint
Comes with 2
Peels up a little (Nothing superglue can't fix)
Just a squeegee kit... great for the money, very easy to clean. Gameface squeegees made me realize how much paint these things hold. Cleans chops cleanly, and one folds and fits perfectly into your pocket. However, after some use, it starts peeling off, but superglue fixed that for me. It gives off a little fuzz sometimes, as do all squeegees.
Was spyder electra ACS w/ egg2 (lazy too look at ups.)
Now nothing so far. Just waiting for the money.
Get the job done
Easy to pull
Wont break easy
A little small so pull 1-3 times
They get your barrel clean and they reach to the bolt. You may have to do it 1-3 times since its a bit small. I like the red color it makes it look pretty cool. They wont break like those bid white ones with the clear rubber connecting them.
They are really nice as an on field sqeegee as well
Its great to use during a match, if you were to have a barrel break. But it leaves some fibers. Where I store it, there are fibers on the ground, messy. Overall its a great product to use. I use it all the time in in a game. Only 1 problem i had, during a match i had a barrel break, i stuck the swab down the barrel, and when i pulled back, it broke in half, so i had to call myself out. It was easy to fix though. And im more carefull when pulling it out now.
Great Product, all players should have one of these during a game. If not this one, a different brand. Im giving a 9 because it broke in half and cost me the game and because it loses fibers.
These are great swabs and I like them a lot, my guns dont chop balls but this cleans the slime on the outside of the balls right out of my mainbody/barrels. Great swabs. Buy these now! Ball breaks will annoy you no more. 50 word maximum, screw that! Dude, Im done saying what I have to say. Damn word counters
If you've got the money and want good swabs, these are the way to go.
I've used the tippmann flatline squeegie and the strait shot (also from tippmann)
these were both horrible compared to this

J&J Full Tilt Ceramic barrel

Cleans barrel very well
2 different kinds, a strait shot and a bendy one
Some fuzzies fall off and get stuck in barrel
The first time i used this barrel swab i was just amazed that it cleaned my barrel so well. Also after i used it for a while i figured out that I did not have to take the barrel off for cleaning, this was a big plus because i had just recently been shot out of a game for cleaning my barrel (I was charged and i had no barrel and i ran like a little sissy girl, then i was shot in the chest), big disappointment to me, my team still won though.
So I used this barrel swab and noticed that it was leaving fuzzies in my barrel after cleaning between games, this is not much of a problem with performance, but just for me. These were easy to get out, just blow down your barrel and they fly out.
To clean these, it is extremely easy, just run under water and squeeze, the water and paint come out easily.
This is the best barrel cleaning device i have ever used, and I would recommend to anyone simply because it is the best i have ever used and it is so simple to use.
Those run through things and a crappy thing that comes with the Tippmann A-5.

The bendable one eventually comes apart.
Really good. Cleans barrel very well (if you know how to correctly clean a barrel). Useful for cleaning inside of hopper or chamber etc. Just wash when it gets dirts and it is as good as new. The folding one falls apart though. It eventually splits in have. But I have learned to live with it. Just a minor inconvenience.
Cleans barrel. Foldable one is good for on field if you have a barrel break.
Sometimes the fuzzies get stuck in the barrel
takes while to dry when wet
My neighbor bought this squeege for me for my birthday. I was "shootin' up the world" in my back yard. I popped a couple rounds with the TL-R, and it got it squeaky clean.
I took it with me to a paintball course with me in New Jersey and it got the job done. As soon as I looked in the barrel to check for more paint, there were a fuzzy or two in the barrel. Sure it looks easy to get the fuzzies out of the barrel, right?
WRONG! The fuzzies would not come out of the barrel. I ran the squeegee through the barrel, and the fuzzies did not come out. I just left them in there and it worked fine. When I clean it, the squeegee takes a while to dry.
My favorite squeegee personally is the field squeegee, or the folding squeegee. You can fold this in two and you can make more room in your harness, pocket, or where ever you put it. I ALWAYS have it with me on the field.
Before I got this squeegee, I had the Kingman Jerk Squeegee. Sure, it was a nice squeegee, but those circle things kept on getting stuck in the barrel... and it made a HUGE mess of paint. When I got this "shiner", it was at least 10 times better.
Whatever this cost, it's worth every penny.
9 out of 10
