    Reloading solutions stock a good number of rods. If you use a bore guide dont forget to alow a bit more length
    when getting a rod.

    Try a carbon fibre, you won't use a steel one again!

    I totally agree with finnbear and the best one to buy is a "Tipton", i use them in shotgun and rifle.

    Steel - so heavy, so unweildly, so 20th century, so passť.

    Actually, I take it all back. I think my PH rods are steel underneath the attractive coloured plastic.

    Guys,

    We've already solved the problem with overpriced "stalking bipod sticks".

    B&Q garden canes are the obvious solution, or do we have kit tarts here?

    Pro shot rods for me.
    Plastic covered and carbon will pick up contaminates from the bore, which will be abrasive.
    Polished s/steel will last pretty much forever, or untill you bend it.

    Tipton carbon fibre are are best,As advised by a few riflesmiths.
    The plastic coated can get ingress of carbon etc from the barrel.
