"...MUCH faster and more efficient is taking the barrel off and using a rigid cleaning rod with a nicely fitting o-ring bore jag that uses most of the patch to clean, instead of the little rubber bit that uses a tiny, tiny fraction of the patch."
I understand you are not an Otis fan..that's cool. One thing however, certain popular firearms do not lend themselves to popping the barrel off for routine cleaning, my Browning BAR, Marlin 336, Ruger 10/22 and Mini-14 being among them. Hence, unless you decide the optimum method for bore cleaning to be running a rod from muzzle to chamber and scrubbing it out in that direction, I think the Otis system is something to consider as a better option.
For those other firearms with bores that can be easily cleaned in the PROPER direction (most shotguns, bolt rifles, most auto pistols, etc.) for sure, a good rod will work fine and yeah, is probably a tad less tedious than the Otis cable
