In my experience pull throughs are only a quick fix maintainence jobbie. I found this out when I bought the VFG rod and felt cleaning system. As a test I cleaned the barrel with my pull through the best I could ( it was squeaking and on the verge of snapping) then without firing any more shots I used the felt and rod system. The results were staggering, the felts came out black and contained what appeared to be rust. It took 15 felts to get it clean and that was after being cleaned with a pull through kit. After that, I only use a pull through as an emergency measure if it goes off mid comp .
