    J Dewey 17 caliber coated cleaning rod
    I just use tipton jags, cheap and they get the job done
    I've also become pretty pleased with boresmith triangle patches

    Dewey .17 cal coated rod, tipton jags are both excellent.

    I double up the 1" round cotton patches, so that they form a reasonably "tight" wad.

    I bought a 22cal Tipton 36" rod, mainly because my 3 piece brass one was not long enough for my Ultra Lux. I have only had it a few weeks but it seems to fit and work really well in all my CZ's. And it is very well made and plenty stiff. Got it at Midway when it was on sale.

    I use a ProShot SS 20 cal rod with an adapter to allow using a larger .22 cal jag. These hammer forged CZ bores are quite a bit tighter than a more typical .22RF bore - around .211" as opposed to .217". Smaller 20 or 17 cal rods are recommended for use in them.

    I like the way they work. And I flip them around and use both sides.

    Here is a great system that I use. I have the same rifle as you do. I use a Dewey carbon rod, 3 adapters from Champions choice, VFG cleaning felts, a Sinclair guide rod that I filed a notch in so it will lock in the receiver and release using the bolt release lever. The pictures are a little out of focus but you can see how it all works. Had to get the 3 adapters to use the .177 rod with the .22 cleaning felts. It works absolutely fantastic! I already had the Dewey rod, I think the bore guide is from Sinclair (find the same model anywhere - they are all the same. I think mine was for a CZ 452?? Not sure but I think that what it was for), the 3 adapters from Champions Choice (DBA .177 adapter to use .22, DBA22A .22 brush adapter with external threads, and 22VFG is the .22 adapter for .22 VFG felts). Got the cleaning felts from them too - V520. I hope the pictures give you the idea.
