They are stiffer than the pipe cleaners you buy at smoke shops which is nice but they do still bend of course, they aren't magic. They cleaned my pipes perfectly and I only had to use about three of them compared to about 6 or 7 of the other popular brand in a yellow package that you buy at smoke shops. They do not leave poofy bits as with other pipe cleaners either, which is very nice.
I actually use these to clean the extractor tube on my M4 rifle. My main concern was that the cleaner had to be solid and durable enough to pull carbon build up out of tight metal chambers. These cleaners are awesome, rugged and stiff enough to get the job done. No more cheesy craft pipe cleaners that fall apart; this is the real deal.
These are not "art's and craft's" pipe cleaners. These are stiff with both thicker wire and much, much stiffer bristles. If you need to clean an actual pipe forget the other kind and pick up some of these. They are also stiff enough that I find I don't need to use as many, saving money. They get the job done quicker, saving time. Let the kids have the lime green ones.
