"Ideal for running through long stretch of outdoor underground trunking - did the job instantly where pulling a replacement cable with cord got jammed. Good value for that job. Easy to store - just keep some cable ties handy when winding it back up after use to go back in its compact box."
"I have had one of these for 10 years now and it has always worked well where the traditional dodge of a piece of wire coat hanger or welding rod proves inadequate. I have never needed anything like the 30m length provided and so have cut mine into different lengths. The material is quite strong nylon-like plastic but watch out for its tendency to coil itself into knots if you are not careful. Because of this, it is hard to direct in a straight line once it disappears into the cavity. Nevertheless every toolbox should have one."
"Ideal for trunking and conduit etc which is what its designed for. For large open voids you will need rods as this stuff isn't strong enough and curls up. Does what it was designed to do well enough though."
"I was in a jam trying to feed a cable through a boxed section where I didn't have clear access. Having managed to get a probe through the 3 meter section, I was able to tow this tape back again. it fed though quite easy, but as the routing nada small section that was apparently a little tight for the cable being used I didn't have full confidence that the draw tape would handle that strong a pull, instead opting to first pull a 4mm single core through to work as a stronger pull line. However had there not been this small tight section, all would have been fine. Not bad for the price."
"Does it do what it is intended to do? Yes it does. It has a bullet on a short spring at one end and a slotted ferrule at the tail end. Quality appears to be adequate and it's a fairly inexpensive bit of kit. The only down side is its length. At 30m it's a bit long for most of my jobs."
"I saw previous reviews on this and thought it might not do the job but bought it anyway. Absolutely excellent for drawing cables through conduit which is its function. Drew a new cable through an old half inch conduit with 3 wires already in it and it worked beautifully. The only niggle was that it is 30m long but only a minor annoyance. Might be worth considering producing them in different lengths though. Providing velcro ties might be a nice add on so you can store them neatly but I used a couple of short lenths of cable to tie mine in a neat circle. Cheers"
"Extremely handy and useful tool for getting wires/cable into difficult places. Only complaint is that it is very long (30m) and rather difficult and fiddly to wrap up/untangle after use. Make sure you have strong and sticky tape handy because there is no easy way to fasten the cable securely to the tool."
"This would possibly be useful when feeding through 20mm conduit, but it has too much memory and not enough rigidity for feeding through spaces where it is not constrained so well. It is impossible to lay it out straight, with its natural form being in a coil, and it twists up if you attempt to lay it out. Perhaps it was just unsuitable for what I was using it for which was trying to feed it through a 50mm duct. Its diameter is 3mm."
"As in other reviews would be ok passing down plastic trunking although unless frequent access 30m is too long. Bought to feed alarm cables behing plaster coving, it would not go around a corner 300mm away from start as too flexible and will not straighten out unless heated with a flame under tension while cooling, which is what I did cutting into sections of sensible length & cutting the ends off. Needed professional rod kit but not worth spending money for a one off. Got there in the end but too flexible and keeps coiling up so of no use in anything but a restricted space ie 20mm plastic trunking etc."
