The Gunslick carbon fiber cleaning rod is an excellent product. I would give it 5 stars. I have always used J. Dewey cleaning rods in the past and they are one of the best. I decided to try a brand that I thought would not be that great just for a review. I thought the Gunslick rod would be poorly manufactured because it is a high production item from a really large company. But Surprise!
I bought the pistol length carbon fiber rod to test on my Glocks. I like carbon fiber because it’s super light weight and it will not damage the bore or muzzle of a gun. Carbon fiber is too hard for foreign particulates to get embedded too. Carbon fiber does not flex much either. It’s very rigid.
The Gunslick rod is nicely made with a nice ball bearing handle that fits your hand and it quite comfortable. It’s a top notch cleaning rod. The price was great too…under $25. It’s hard to get a good brass rod for that price and carbon fiber is superior to brass or steel. I even like carbon fiber more than a coated brass rod.
