I have one of these rods. Bought it at Cabelas years ago. I installed a small wooden handle on the blank end to help seating balls. It's my go to ramrod for my two .54 caliber rifles, and my son's. 50 cal. I have a .50 cal jag on it. I also use it to load my first shot at the truck when I go on deer hunts. I broke a wooden ramrod on the deer opener a couple years ago so now the delrin rod goes in the truck whenever I go hunting.I know some people don't like them, but I can't figure out why. (Besides apparently machine gun rods are now the cat's ass of muzzleloading accessories)
I use 2 delrin ram/cleaning rods as range rods and cleaning rods for my smoothbores. One is cut to length to fit the gun's thimbles for days with a lot of shooting but I want to do everything like I would in the field.

Now, I am told these are not available from this same source, but, a fellow member sent me this message after I posted something about these a while back,

I would also note that they are/were available in metric diameter that fits the thimbles of Pedersoli rifles. We used one as a replacement when a friend's Pedersoli rod broke.
I should mention that the female threaded hole takes standard 8/32 accessories, no need to order special "muzzleloader" stuff.

I've been using these for many years with ZERO issues.
