Real Avid’s new Bore-Max Speed Clean System is a line of brushes, jags and patches intended to be a faster way to clean a bore with less effort. The company says, “With the Speed Jag and Speed Jag Patch, expect the same results as pushing four or more traditional square patches in only one pass through the bore.”
Boasting twice the bristle density of standard brushes, Bore-Max Speed Brushes offer more than double the scrubbing power to the bore with each pass. Stiff, durable nickel-plated phosphor bronze bristles resist chemical breakdown in the bore, which should extend the life of the brush.
The bristle configuration of the Bore-Max Speed Brush provides maximum scrubbing density, while retaining enough flexibility to effectively reach down into the lands and grooves, removing more carbon with each pass of the brush.

With the Speed Jag and Speed Jag Patch, you can get the same results as pushing four or more traditional square patches in only one pass through the bore.
By applying new thinking to an old process, Real Avid has created a line of jags and patches sized to account precisely for both the jag diameter and the patch thickness. This combo provides the optimal compression to reach into the lands and grooves thoroughly and consistently.
Patch material was also a big consideration in the development of the Speed Clean System. Real Avid selected a synthetic material that displayed superior absorbency over cotton and minimizes the remaining fray and excess solvent in the bore. The synthetic material simply outperforms cotton. Another benefit of using synthetic material is the ability to create a quilt-like textured surface, which is more effective at picking up and trapping crud as it passes through the bore without fraying or dropping lint.
Says Howard Tripp, Real Avid's Chief Innovation Officer:
“To get the job done faster, we wanted to limit the amount of times it took to run through the bore in order to achieve the desired result, which in this case is a clear patch. First, we elongated the jag and eliminated the taper found on traditional jags. We instead created multiple compression rings along the entire length of the jag. Since we shaped the patch to fit the jag precisely without any wasted overlapping material, we no longer needed to accommodate for the patch bunching and could utilize the entire jag length.”
