Empire Super Freak Carbon tip swabable??

Is the SF carbon tip swabable? Want to make sure before I do it.

Read a few reviews that people damaged it with a swab.

I don't see why it wouldn't be, unless you're beating the living **** out of it with a swab you should be good.

Good to hear.

What brand did you use? Was it microfiber?

Thanks for the post. I have a new Exalt maid still unopened. Wasn't sure, but guess I can use it now.

It was only the first run of Stiffis that had trouble with being swabbed because of how the porting was designed. The porting shape on early Stiffis could snag on swab fibers and cause the CF to become unraveled. Stiffi fixed that with later barrels. Every CF barrel since then (to my knowledge) can be swabbed without issue.
