Pro-Shot cleaning roads?

Hi,

I just purchased the universal Pro-shot cleaning kit with the coated rods and
the red handle. Does the handle supposed to spin freely from the rod??

The handle of a cleaning rod spins in order to follow the twist of the bore. If your handle spins "from" the rod does that mean it spins off the rod? If so, that is a little problem. The handle rides on a bearing and should spin freely.

No the handle doesnt spin off the rod, it just spins freely.

Tuzo,

But when cleaning the chambers of the cylinder, I would need a fixed
handle cleaning rod, that does not rotate, correct?

A chamber brush has no grooves to follow because it does not go past the chamber. It merely goes into the chamber and then out; therefore, it does not matter whether the handle rotates or not.
