Fishing Rod
Still using that curly steel fish tape? Try the sectional fiberglass rods now favored by electricians and telecom contractors. Products like Greenlee's Fish Stix won't ball up when they hit an obstruction, and they're much less likely to damage insulation. The newest Fish Stix measure only 5/32 inch thick, making them more flexible than previous versions. They're sold as a single 6-foot piece ($21) with two bullet ends, or as a set of three 6-foot sections with threaded ends ($54). Greenlee, 800/435-0786. www.greenlee.com
