Ideal Tuff-Grip™ 31-055 Steel Fish Tape

Ideal manufacture a comprehensive range of Fish Tapes to suit a variety of applications. The 31-055 is a blue steel tape with suprior rigidity designed for pulling larger or heavier cables through longer runs of conduit where increased force is likely to be required to achieve this. Conversely, the increased rigidity allows the tape to bu pushed further due to decreased surface friction over a long run. 

However, if you have a long run of conduit that includes several bends then this tape may not be suitable, instead a more flexible model may be required.
