View Full Version : One piece cleaning rod or Otis flex cable

February 13, 2002, 08:21 PM
The search feature is not working, so Pardon me if this subject has already been discussed.

Just wondering if any completion shooters actually use Otis flexible rod system instead of a Dewey one piece?

Spefically Is the Otis build on hype or does it actually work as advertised. More importantly, how well does it guards against crown contact?

Thanks in advance for your help

Otis system works. Been using for many years before competiton skeet etc. Use it for everything and yes it protects the crown.

Small enough to deep in range bag, etc. yes it will clear a stuck wad, or squib load.

If out hunting will usually keep, if not the whole kit, just the caliber in pocket needed in case of problem afield.

Still have the one pc rods, when gun apart and can clean from breech , might use , usually stick with otis.

BTW, great people, and IIRC FP10 is what comes with kit, all I use anyway(FP10)

What is the application?

The Otis is excellent for a field expedient cleaning on a self defense rifle, but I wold not use one on a competitoin rifle.
