By John from USA on 2021-05-07 14:01:50

Things I liked:

This works as stated when new, but getting the plastic worm through a patch requires a little more effort than the plastic tubing can handle and the pointy end eventually fails. I use an X-Acto knife #11 tip to BARELY puncture patchs now. Kind of a pain in the butt.

Things I would have changed:

I'd switch this patch worm to using monofilament fishing line of a similar gauge, that should hold up better. Crimp a bit of brass tubing over the line where you want the patches to be when in use. Hobby shops sell small diameter brass tubing for this; look for the K&S Metals display.

What others should know:

Great for break barrels, but it can be rough on fixed breech air guns with limited space to insert (or retrieve) the worm. You will most likely need a soda straw if you have any moderators to deal with. If you over puncture the patch, it will come off inside the barrel, so just enough is the key.

    Things I liked:

    The products simplicity, although, & in regard to this simplicity, it seems a little expensive.

    Things I would have changed:

    Things I would change has nothing to do with this product, but moreso the company's questionable business practices. What I speak of hear is 2 problems which have been reported 3 times by me with no results, & obviously a real good sign that people may want to be careful before doing Any business with this company. It's my feeling that if you can't do what you say you're going to, you're not of much value! To make sure the gun I ordered didn't wind up in the wrong hands, I paid an additional $13.97 for shipping to make sure I would have to sign for it upon delivery. Well not only was MY signature not given (BY ME!), the delivery person put the package leaning up against my front door (for all to see) & tried signing my name to make it look like I had signed for the package, which is a Federal crime & is being investigated by Fed X right now. Btw, shipping should have been free, but I was charged the $13.97 re special handling & getting a signature. See next box below-----

    What others should know:

    Upon looking over things before calling Pyramyd to discuss this, I also noticed that the person taking the order had made a mistake in adding things up & I was overcharged $3 on my order. So I called Pyramid explained all this & was told I would be getting an immediate $16.97 credit issued to my credit card. I was never issued this credit after calling back & being told this was going to happen 3 TIMES, & have been waiting about a month (or more)! I don't know about anyone else, but I don't like being played with. BUT, seeing that I don't really need this gun, just saw it & decided to buy myself a Christmas present, there's a good chance I'll be sending it all back for a refund. & if they want to continue playing & not issue my refund, I have my credit card company & the Federal government that will be taking the lead on this. I thought this was reputable company. But maybe now I can save others from any grief & aggravation. I bought in good faith & got a good slap! My time is of value

    Things I liked:

    Price was more than fair. It also worked very easily; a great bargain.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make it part of a bundle deal. I didn't know that there was no actual cleaning solvent on the cotton pads it came with, they were dry. But I had a bottle, so no big deal.

    What others should know:

    I can't see the worm ever wearing out, and you can just cut up old cotton t shirts to replenish the pads, so this thing should last for years.

    Things I liked:

    Very straightforward easy to use can be tricky trying to poke the one end through the wet patches without poking yourself. I used a scratch awl from my woodworking tools to make a small hole in the center of the patch first, then run the patchworm through. Much quicker.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not much to change unless company decides to sell patches with starter hole in the center. Not a deal breaker for me either way.
