When pulling cable through flex conduit, metal conduit, manholes, or access panels you will need to acquire the right fiberglass fish tape. With lengths from 100 feet to 1,000 feet, tension strength up to 1,400 pounds, and diameters from 1/8th inch to ½ inch., depending on the job, you will have to determine what type of fish tape to use. For pulling through indoor conduit, a smaller diameter fish tape like the Jameson Wee Buddy or the Jameson Little buddy fiber-glass fish-tape gives you a smaller bend radius which can handle sharper and more frequent turns throughout the conduit. For larger jobs through access points such as manholes, a larger diameter and longer range fiberglass fish tape is better like the Jameson Big Buddy rodder or Jameson Good Buddy rodder because it has a better pull strength and the long distance of the fiberglass fish tape ensures that you only have to make the pull once.

There are a few advantages in fiberglass fish tape vs. steel fish tape. Our Jameson and Greenlee Fiberglass Fish Tape is some of the most trusted fish tape in the industry. A few of the most common fiberglass fish tape sizes are 300 foot and 500 foot. Fiberglass fish tape is safer because it’s a non-conductive material so the risk of electric shock is reduced greatly. Fiberglass is also much more flexible than galvanized steel, making it easier to fish through tight or crowded ducts and conduits. Fiberglass rodders offer a wide variety removable ends; a flexible spring lead could be used for sharp corners and a pull eye with a swivel reduces the risk of the cable getting wrapped around cables and other obstacles. Also, unlike steel fish tape or nylon fish tape a fiberglass fish tape repair kit can be purchased to fix damaged fiberglass or replace broken off tips.
