I like mine

If your talking about the one I have. Mine is a cable with a plastic coating on it. It has a threaded end, and a patch loop on the other. It works better than a bore snake because the cable is stiffer than a string and threads through the barrel much easier. I love it. You should give it a try.
Matt.

I got mine before the boresnakes came out. I use it when I need to let solvent soak into the bore for a while, can't do that with a boresnake. No one around here sells Otis products, so I have to get patches at gunshows or order them.

Haven't seen the site yet, but if I can't find the otis patches I just fold a patch and clip just a bit w/the tip of pair of dikes to make the hole to put the slotted head thru...quick and easy.

FWIW,

I got one (Otis) included with my Volquartsen rifle. I liked it alot. But when I ran out of patches I just went back to my home-made "weed-wacker" pull thru.
