I would tend to stay away from multi-piece rods, save for emergency's out in the field --- like a clogged bore --- which I carry a multi-piece rod set, in my daypack; when I'm rifle/pistol/shotgun hunting.

When cleaning... run cotton flannel patches only once thru the bore {to avoid scratching} --- with Hoppes #9 or Simple Green --- not back and forth; before you use the brush.
Use copper or lead cleaner with bronze core brushes only {nylon or bronze bristles}, not steel, in order to avoid scratching the bore.

Use of steel bristles/steel core chamber brushes is okay --- but you will scratch the chamber with them --- but that is the best way to clean the chambers of hi-volume round fired rifles and pistols.
