Anyone see the benefits of owning a 200' fiberglass fishtape? I figure steel would be more beneficial since you won't be able to push a long fiberglass tape that far. I asked this question in another forum, however it ended up into being a schoolyard fight between two other posters.
The reason I'm asking is that I was talking to a vendor and they mentioned that they sell a ton of the 200' fishtapes. Actually, outselling the 100' and the 50'. I can't see contractors picking these up because of the price and how they're pretty useless in trying to push past 75-100'. I'm in the Chicago area where conduit is the main medium. I'll always prefer steel, however in some applications, new rules in some commercial and industrial sites have forgone the use of steel because of the obvious safety factor.
