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 barrel completely the first time, don't have to remove the barrel.
none that i've found
this swab is definetly a must . it will clean out the barrel flawlessly in one swipe . you don't even have to take the barrel out , it soaks up all the paint imediately . and yes it does work fine in the flatline barrel . I dont know what else to say , it's a barrel swab.
buy this barrel swab , one day you will find yourself needing it and if you don't have it you will be very sorry.
good quality, completely cleans the entire inner surface of barrel with 1 swipe
fuzz comes off - not in barrel, just mysteriously in my hands
This is a great swab set. Each one works totally well - the folding one is so great for cleaning out a ball break on the field. Push the swab through ONCE (either swab, each has equal fuzzy surface area) and its garunteed youll get every drop of paint in there. Good deal too - everything in paintball is so expensive, but you only pay like 8 bucks or so to get such useful tools!
If you dont have a swab/squeegie, or if yours just sucks, buy these! Much better than squeegies, in my opinion. I can handle the extra time needed to pull off the barrel, to get such a nice polish.
~ 1For Field Use, One For Tool Box.
~ Perfectly Cleans Barrel.
~Fleece Gets Stuck In Marker/Barrel
~Falls Apart After Extended Use
I got this set a while ago from the shop I work at for free. Over all, they work well, and I keep one on me at all times while playing.
~Cheap. You pay less than $10 for two very useful squeeges.
~ Because they come in a two pack, you can carry the bendable one in your pocket, and keep the stick swab in your tool case for use after the game.
~ Perfectly Cleans Barrel.
**I find that after you break a ball, if you run a pull-thru or stick squeege with a disk at the end through your barrel first, and then a battle swab, you'll get a perfectly clean barrel time after time.**
~Fleece Gets Stuck In Marker/Barrel. I've found that the fleece on this swab will sometimes get stuck on my ball detent or some other internal part.
~Falls Apart After Extended Use. After you use these swabs, and they start to soak up paint, the adhesive backing to the fleece starts to fall off.
These swabs are cheap and do their job well. They'll give you a quick means of cleaning your barrel during the heat of battle and an effective way of totally cleaning your barrel of all paint with the aid of other squeeges while in the staging area.
Trust me, you'll find yourself going through a lot of these swabs. This is mostly because so many people like them, they'll be tempted to steal them!
Cleans in one time through, don't have to take barrel off,
Man this is a awsome package I got it for 8.99 which has to be the cheapest you can get 2 squeegees for! I mostly use the battel swap since it goes in your pocket and it cleans it out in one time don't even have to take the barrel off.
When I went with this for the first time everyone was wanting to sue it since it was so cool and awsome
Go and get this it is well worth the 8.99 if you can get the free shipping.

works... thing about crappy squeegees is I was always paranoid that the tip was gonna poke something the wrong way.. this cleaner is excellent, and considering i rent out guns and have to clean about five or so of them a game, this thing really comes in use. very durable, i expect it to stay in my shop for awhile.
for anybody picky about their guns bieng clean (me), buy it.

+ as far as sticks go: very durable
- i never was a stick person but thats not redz fault
all in all a good deal. as seen in the picture and in prior reviews you get one stick with a handle and one swab that bends. both are approximately 16 inches in length with the stick having less swabbed length of course due to the handle. i dont think swabbing technology can get very advanced but it cleans very well for its type and its good to have these things even if you think you will never break paint. one cool thing to do is fold the bendable swab and toss it to your friend for a cool effect spinny and flippy effect :-P however if my advice falls on any open ears its best to stick with pull through. it does the job best and gives you a mirror finish to boot.
i dont like sticks and swabs but you know what? theyre pretty damn good for what they are. it gets a rare 10. i have no complaints

Dumb 10" tippmann squeegie-doesn't even compare to battle/ "barrel" swab
Piranha G3 E-force(2k2)
20 oz co2(68 ci 4500 psi ACI Bulldog HPA Tank being shipped as we speak)
Dye Ultalight(coming in two weeks)
Very Durable squeegie. Cleans barrels amazingly.
sometimes lint comes off in your ports.
This is a great product especially for 12 dollars they give you two squeegies...one for on field action(hence the name battle swab) and one strait shot one for cleaning while off the field. Its made by redz and who doesn't trust redz??? Also this is a very unique squeegie....I'm surprised no other companies have tried to make a ripoff version of it..
I love this squeegie...I will be using this squeegie for a long time and I don't think I will be using anything else...ever.
i dunno......price maybe. PBreveiw lists it as $15, i paid $7.
i use these in conjunction with a squeegee. havent had any trouble with any of the brands ive used but these are built a little heavier duty than my others. comes with two swabs in the pack, one staight shot and one folding model. good to have around to keep your barrels as clean as a whistle.
if youre anal about barrel cleanliness (like i am) these are fine, they seem like thay might last longer than the others ive had. not like a cleaning product recieves heavy duty use, unless youre cleaning rentals!!!

Fast & easy to use
Absorbs paint well
Won't clean well as 5 disc jerks
dirt & debris from ground clings like Velcro
These swabs clean your barrel well enough to regain most accuracy with no shoot throughs. They are fast and convenient to use mid game and are easier to use than jerk squeegees. Usually after one or two uses the fabric can become saturated with paint and will stop absorbing well, leaving a film of paint in your barrel after use. Just wipe it off between games with a rag (don't forget to squeegee your squeegee). Verry nice that you get a straight shot and battle swab in one purchase.
Works well enough to recommend but won't clean barrel as thoroughly as a disc jerk. Very convenient to have.
