Products Used:
Some barrel swab that a ref had when I didn't have my viper squeegee with me.
Marker Setup: WGP Autococker Trilogy Pro
Stock Barrel
12 oz 12
12v revvy

I also use a Spyder Shutter w/ ESP frame.
Strengths: Cleans extremely well.
Very durable (had mine for years)
Weaknesses: Can't clean without taking barrel off.
Review: This is a great squeegee. I bought it with my first paintball gun (well, not first, but w/e). I sorta picked it out by random, not knowing what it looked like or how it worked. Anyway, it works wonderfully. It's very useful when you have to clean out lodged paintballs. In just one run-through, you have a spotless, clean barrel, ready to go.

The only problem I have with it is that you can use it to clean your barrel with the barrel still on....well you could, but it's not practical and won't work well.

Compared to other squeegees, I'd say this one has an advantage, as barrel swabs tend to dirty your barrel more than clean it, and can't push paintballs out very well. The viper squeegees strong construction allows it to do just that.
Conclusion: Anyway, definitely a product to consider when hunting for squeegees. I've used mine for 3 years, and it still works just as good as the day I got it.

Strengths: Disks seals in the barrel well
Strong squeegee
Weaknesses: Works best when barrel is removed
Review: I've used several squeegee's in the past few years, most of them generic pull through one's, and the biggest problem i've had with all of them, is that if you get dirt, or paintballs lodged in your barrel, a pull through will not push them out.

The Viper Stick Squeegee is the answer to this problem, they are tough, and strong, and will push out any obstruction you may have in your barrel. I personally have pushed out paintballs, and up to 3 inched of dirt (when i fell down a hill and put my barrel in the ground) out of my barrel, and managed to continue the games i was playing. If i had only had a pull though squeegee i would not have been able to pull this off and would have had to call myself out.

The only downfall to this squeege is that is works best when the barrel is removed, if you were to put this down your barrel while its still on your marker, you will end up pushing all the paint and junk right into your bolt, which is never good.

Also, unlike a pull through squeegee, which you can put around your neck, or roll up in a pocket, this squeegee can be a paint to put in a pocket, i highly recommend a stick squeegee sheath.
Conclusion: Personally i carry a pull though and a stick squeegee to cover all the bases.

10 out of 10 for its strength and durability.

Products Used:
none
Marker Setup: stock shutter
co2
Strengths: -cheap
-loose connection on rubber swiper
Weaknesses: -not flexible
Review: This is the best 6 bux you'll ever spend. It works just like a 12 dollar squeegee and in some ways better. Regular squeegees have a very tight connection to the rubber swiper, this one is not like that. It might be just a cheap connection, but i like it because it allows the rubber swiper to enter the barrel faster. Also it allows cleaning to be easier and faster. Althought the swiper might not be perfect, it is still a great buy. In a game, i had chopped a ball and in one swipe, i was back shooting. Sometimes it supposedly requires two swipes to completely clean a barrel out, but it hasnt been needed for me yet.
Conclusion: You should defintely go out and buy this squeegee. I bought it for $5.50 and it is the best 5.50 i've ever spent.

Products Used:
Proflex, which is terrible for the Flatline just like any other pull-through
Marker Setup: 98c, Flatline, 32 Degrees Front Bolt, Double Blade Trigger
Strengths: -Disk to get paint
-Swab for rest
Weaknesses: -Long
-Difficult to carry
-Takes 2+ runs to get everything
Review: If your going to get one of these, make sure you get a leg squeegee holder or lanyard to carry it on the field with you, as its long design makes it difficult to do so. You don't have to take your barrel off, which is a good thing when your on the field, but it won't work as well if you don't because you can't run the disk on the end through. The cloth on the swab is removable, which is better than those big fuzzy things on many pull throughs because you can take it off and clean it. It usually takes 2-3 runs to get all the paint, and even then you might want to borrow someones pull through with disks and all to get that last little speck of paint. It does the job though, which is why you buy it, don't you?
Conclusion: If you find it for less than $6 and need a squeegee, go for it. I would also recommend it to anyone with a Flatline, since they're difficult to remove and you can use this without taking the barrel off.
