    Strange,
    I only have 1 ramrod (for each gun) to keep the one in the thimbles company.
    Oh wait, that makes about 40......:rolleyes:
    Do the little short ones for the pistols count???? Cause I did not count them....

    At the range, since 1991, I've used my "Wonder Rod". My almost 30 yo helper. It is a black, synthetic material that is 4' long and can be tied into a pretzel form, and NOT break. It has a couple wiggles in the waggle, but she still does her duty. I don't know if they're still available anywhere? The old broken rods that still have length, I've been able to sell at rondy occasionally. My barrels are 44" long so 48" rods break 8-10 off there still is 38-40" of rod left. Small work for pistols.

    Thanks, but I'm fine. mine is almost 29 years old and works like the day I got it. I was trying to point out that being choosy can be beneficial. They were considered pricey at the time. But, since I bought it, I've only broken 1 wood rod do to dropping on a trail walk and it getting stepped on. i marked your screen name and topic and if someone is interested I give them info.
