I used to use those fluffy soft pipe cleaners, but they bent too easily and were not hard enough to pick up the grit and moisture from the stem. That leads to a sour-tasting pipe, although a little whisky will fix that (in the pipe, not the smoker, or maybe a little of both; you do you). These pipe cleaners are rigid and rough enough, without abrading your pipe, to cram through the stem and sweep out all of the ash and bits of tobacco as well as the moisture. I get more moisture out of a pipe with these than other brands, and it leads to better smoking satisfaction.
Good for the task at hand but not as "fat" or "tapered" as some others I've used.
These are slightly slimmer than those that come in the 100 pack. They work great in any pipe and because they are bound in the pack, I feel that they are smoother and don't shed lint. After trying many brands, these are my absolute favorite!
I tried many pipe cleaners, I think that these are some of the best.
These work great for gettin the stubborn stuff out, Leave your pipe nice and clean. Worth the money to have some on hand.
