You sound like some old codger griping about the internet just being another fad.
What does the Internet have to do with Bore Snakes?
If you like these things go for it. They are what they are, nothing more than a quick and dirty way around doing something that has been done for decades successfully by other means. Where is the advantage, if it is one, beyond that?
I'm just telling you what I've seen happen with them, that has swayed me from their purchase. Yes, they're a fad, nothing more. They will not replace cleaning rods like DVD's have replaced VHS. I'd love to see you post a video of yourself fumbling around with that thing through 10 chambers and a barrel.
