    Hey Danny Richard at Wilhelm arms in Chch will sell and post you a nice Dewey rod for not too much. They're very good rods and he's good to deal with.

    Yeah the debate still rages on forums re which is better - coated (Boretech type) versus uncoated (Dewey type).

    My preference after long long years of coming via the original Parker Hale coated and uncoated SS is for the top of the line Boretech with the end tip that doesn't give a false indication of Cu when your copper solvent tries to attack it.

    And my other equal best is the Tipton carbon fibre. Beautiful rods. Someone posted they broke one - I have given mine hell. They have one of the best free running ball races plus a nice feature of the rod extended beyond the handle slightly. If you get stuck you can tap the end with a hunk of wood without damaging the bearings.

    Get a rod that matches your bore - yeah I know may have to own several different cals, rods are dear etc etc. Much better to match to bore size than have a rod that overly flexes and slaps the rifling.

    I own 4 quality rods in different cals, a mixture of Tipton and Boretech.

    As always cry once. A good rod will outlast the ownership of several rifles.

    Oh, and don't bother with sectional/screw together rods.
