You can find these fish tapes in various configurations, with options in:

  • Leader Type
  • Width
  • Length
  • Case Size

These variations allow you to choose the fish tape that best fits your specific needs.


  • Safety: The non-conductive material enhances safety, especially when working around live electrical circuits.
