Durable, high carbon 1/4-Inch wide spring steel fish tapes are firm yet flexible. New protective coating reduces non-contact moisture and humidity but keeps the steel dry to touch. Laser etched markings in 1-Foot (0.3 m) descending increments allow you to more accurately measure the length of conduit runs and determine the amount of tape left to pay out. Slim-profile plastic tip navigates easily and reduces catching. Optimized design of the tape housing decreases payout effort.
