Great product. I have approximately 20ft of vent duct which is pieced together and held with small sheet metal screws and sealed with duct tape. There are x2 90° turns with in 4ft of each other for a continued direction zig-zag. I used x2 8ft sets from either end of duct.
Make sure to use a drill for continued brush rotation for any movement in the duct. This prevents any difficulty with flexibility especially in the turns.
I filled 4in in a 5gal bucket with semi-compressed lent. For use in interior spaces I recommend use of a cheap respirator mask to prevent breathing the dust. If you put too torque on the links they will snap as they are flexible. To prevent this only snake small portions and back out at a time clearing the lent at each back out.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Traveler Round, not hex connector, for drill -- and too large for my drill chuck.
My two big surprises were (1) that the ends of the rod sections were round, not hex-shaped, so there would have been a big chance of slipping in the chuck, and (2) the rod ends were bigger than the chuck of my battery operated drill. So I had to invent a work-around on the spot. I used a screwdriver bit holder, which fit perfectly into the rod end, and then taped it to keep it rotating together. This solution worked OK, but I was still disappointed. Other reviewers mentioned the pole sections threading together. On the model I bought, there were spring loaded "dimple" connectors - so there was no issue with the sections falling apart. Quality is adequate, and it got the job done. Price for me was more important than high quality, so I was happy overall.

I used this recently to clean my drier vent which is about 15 feet long. My vent pipe is both aluminum and the soft mylar-type. I could not remove the access outside so I removed the entire pipe (my laundry room ceiling is exposed). I ran this brush through the vent going both ways and it thoroughly cleaned the 4" pipe. The rods bend well, even when in the softer section of the pipe. It pulled out about two big hand-fulls of lint.
Anyone who cleans their own dryer vent should have one of these.

It worked well, and you won't get the brush caught in the duct if you don't put the drill in reverse! Go gently and gradually. You'll likely need to use a channel lock on the joints to take them apart afterward, but it worked great for us and we won't wait so long next time. Fire hazard. We were lucky. Don't be like us, get 'er done.

I bought two of these separately at different Home Depots. One had snap on ends. The other screw on ends. LOOK if buying more than one.
The product itself works fine.

The pole with the brush on it separated from the other poles in the middle of the dryer vent. It took me many hours to fish it out. If you choose this product, I would tape the poles together to reinforce them.

The ends of the rod were smooth, not threaded, and they were bigger than either my corded or cordless drill chuck would open to so I was unable to use it. Turning it by hand it wouldn't get past a second 90 degree bend.

Great concept and will work fine for short, straight run. Some reviews said it could break off in the duct but I figured they didn't use it correctly. The first time I used it a rod broke and I decided right then that I wasn't going to chance that happening somewhere in a crawl space. I checked out a "linteater". Same concept, same price range, but the rods are much more flexible so I bought one and I'm happy with it.
