Does the job
Wears out quick
I got this thing from Action Village. It does its job, just swab it to get your barrel squeeky clean. The price is cheap, I think it was like like $2.00 or so. Mine seemed like it would wear down very quick and wouldn't have that fluff anymore and the swab would tear from the stick, but it did its job and its only $2.00.

Folds in half
I got these swabs as a raffle throw out. they are great they fold in half and fit right in the swab holder on my paintball pants they clean barrels well but after about 5 uses and cleaning of the swab it becomes just a stick not much fuzz left on it and when they are in your paintball pants and you kneel or squat they snap like a twig.
Over all im giving this product a 10 cause they worked well while they lasted and i got the free.

Fuzzyness wears off after washing alot
fussy stuff peels off eventually
Ok, This was the first squeegee I ever bought, it was at dicks for $8. Since then ive boughten 2 of them (online for $3). Well my old gun (JT) had a 16 inch barrel, and it choped every 50 shots, needless to say I used this baby alot. Well my first squeegee lasted me the spring, but in summer the blue fuzzy fabric started wearing at the ends, I fixed it with some black electrical tape. good as new. Well after washing this thing in the sink about 5 times the fabric starts to clump and it no longer fuzzy, but still cleans just requires another pull through the barrel. I sold my old gun and bought a Tippmann A-5. My A-5 with my Progressive barly ever chops so the squeegee hasnt been getting much use lately. Our last game someone just purchased a brand new PMI Flexi Swab. So I took mine out to compare, mine was not fuzzy at all, there were purple stains at the end of it, and about 5 wrapings of electrical tape throughout it. His was fuzzy soft and blue.
I just purchased a Empire 7 piece barrel kit, along with 2 of these squeegees. When they come in the mail I will compare the new squeegees with the old.
Overall this squeegee is good for about 10 games of constant use. Then it will start to fall apart and not clean as well so I recommend buying a new one after about 10 uses.
I give it a 8, I use this squeegee all the time good, but not good forever
Good for 10-20 games. Then will start to fall apart and wear.
USE BLACK ELECTRICAL TAPE TO FIX FUZZY FABRIC. ELECTRICAL TAPE DOESNT AFFECT CLEANING ABILITIES UNLIKE DUCT TAPE
i had a regular circular ring squeegee and it worked good
i had at the time a piranha GTI Eforce with a stock 10"
It was nice because it was light and was quick if needed on the field
I didnt like how it folded all the time in the barrel....very annoying
Overall it worked to clear all paint in my barrel and i was breaking a lot with that barrel and ball sweat. I thought it was good in the long run through-out the day. The only complaint is it got covered with paint and i couldn't clean it while i was there.
Overall I would reccomend it to anyone with a 16" or less barrel
I really have never used any other type of squeegie other than wrapping a thin metal rod in a soft cloth and sticking that down my barrel

Inexpensive, Cleans your barrel without scratching it
Loses its "fluffiness" quickly
The Flexi Squeegee does pretty much exactly what it's supposed to do. I stuck it down my barrel a couple times and like magic, it was clean. WOW!! It's also soft and fluffy so it doesn't scratch the inside of your barrel
I've heard a lot of people say that it breaks easily. I still have my first one from 2 years ago and it never broke, so whatever, i guess it probably breaks easily if you put it in your pocket. I wear an old t-shirt (under my longsleeve paintballing shirt) that has a chest pocket out of which i cut a hole out of the bottom and it holds my squeegee.
One downside I will make note of is that it does tend to lose its "fluffiness" quickly. It doesnt take many cleanings before it starts to look ragged and not work quite so well though it will still clean your barrel, it just takes more run-throughs to do the job. I don't mind it though because I dont have many ball breakages and one of these babies will last me a solid year.
It's cheap. It works. It won't scratch your barrel unless you are a moron and somehow figure out a way to make it do that, but you'd have to try pretty hard.
Buy it, but don't put it in your pants pocket.

It cleans out your barrel.
Double-sided, no repainting your barrel.
Easy to clean.
Not long enough to clean your barrel without removing it. Not a big deal.
I decided I would need a squeegee and ordered this along with some other things one day. When it arrived I looked at it, and didn't see anything wrong with it, so just put it in my gun case with everything else ( this thing folds up to a very storage/pocket friendly size). It's not really something I think about, but this is very handy during the day when you break balls or get shot right on the barrel. It's nice to have the two ends, so I can clean two big messes out of my barrel without having to go clean it. Then when the time comes to clean it, it's very easy, just hold it under the sink, soak it, and rub your fingers around in it like crazy. It takes a while but it's not tricky or anything.
A squeegee is a must in paintball. Without one you will probably have some problems in your barrel that you just can't fix. At $3, this is a very affordable product and I have had no problems with it.
After you wash it gets thinner and doesn't cleans as good
I bought this because i didn't want to use a squeege while playing. The main reason i bought was becuase i was low on money. WHen i used it it clean my barrel as if it first came with my marker. When i cleaned and let it dry for the night the next it got thin. I was a lil tick off but it don't matter i thought it was gonna be worst for the price i paid. I wouldn't reconmend it to hardcore tourny layers or who abuse thier equipment to the max because it feels like it's gonna break or come apart where it's flexable in the middle. It'll prob be good for new players or people who don't give a crap
It's really good for the price but not soo great if you're a hard core paintball player overall it's pretty good. Get it if you need an emergency or an extra one

Well what can you really say... a battle swab is a battle swab. but so i can meet the 50 word limit, i geuss i will go into detail. I never personally had a problem with durability but i have played with some people who have broken em' during play. i have a ion that never chops really so i only used it in beetween games or when im cleaning the gun. but all in all not a bad buy.
This is just fine, you dont really need to worry yourself over a battle swab too much.

Easy to clean swab
Not thick enough
Fibers fall out
Swabs fal out
At first I had one but then I lost it. So I went out to get another one. During a game is really easy to clean your barrel. Just shove it in and twist it. However it did not get all the paint off becasue it is not absorbant and fat enough. Its easy to clean, just rinse under water, but when I dryed it I noticed some of the blue fibers coming off. but not a lot, or enough to be worried about. Sometimes the swab parts can come out of their rubber thing in the middle, which is bad news in a game
Its good because you need it. They could have done a better job in durability. I give it a five becasue its is AVERAGE. This product also did its job half as good as the barrel was before the break. Dissapointing.
