Sackbutt cleaning

I need to clean my sackbutt. Any ideas on a cleaning rod/snake small enough.

I use a Yamaha small bore trombone snake and haven't had problems. Avoid the Slide-o-mix snake that you attach a cloth to, I have colleagues who've gotten that broken in the slide bow and the cloth stuck.

Thanks. The one I bought, which was a small slide-o-mix, was too large.
