Default Cleaning jags

Wasn't sure where to post this but here goes… Looking to purchase some new cleaning jags & rods, what manufactures make good quality ones? Do I need the exact jag/rod per caliber, i.e. do I need a a .243 jag for my .243 or will the .22 - .270 jag be fine?

Brushes need to match caliber, jags can be generic sized since the patches are what makes up the gap. The downside of using a .22-270" jag is that it's small enough to fit a patch down a 22cal barrel, so when you get up to 6.5mm, it takes a lot of patches to fill the space, which is kinda wasteful...
