The term 'blown out' should just be binned as there's no physical way that can happen as the air column isn't exerting any undue pressure within the bore and the airflow isn't going to cause any abrasion to the bore surface. It's an open-ended tube, not a sealed container and therefore can't retain any air pressure at all.

'Worn out' is a far better term if the bore has undergone physical changes and that can happen if you've used abrasive mops or pullthroughs and pull them through the bore with a lot of speed and force which will eventually damage the bore over time.

It makes me cringe seeing people whip their pullthroughts through the bore at breakneck speed and also allow their mops and pullthroughs to lie on the floor or stuff them in their case cover pockets once they're done with them where they'll pick up all manner of dust and grit.
