If you plan to run these rods near any obstruction better purchase a better set. First time I used one rod inside pvc conduit with a 90 degree bend half of it came out splintered. I own a couple of pulling rod sets but are located in another state and figured these should do for the time being. I should expect to use them maybe few more time before they eventually break...In the images provided you will notice the one rod with half gone.

This product worked as expected, but as some of the other reviewers mentioned one of the rods splintered on the first use. I would have expected that if I was trying to bend the sections too sharp or putting too much force on them, but in this case it was a fairly gentle bend and I was trying to be careful and not putting too much pressure on it. The other two sections still look brand new and it did the job as i mentioned. It was just a fair amount of money spent for something that only lasted one use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sparky Great set of rods. Pro electrician here
These are great rods as with any of the Klein products. I am a professional commercial electrician and these hold up extremely well as well as some of my other Klein tools I have had for years. It is the industry standard.
To the gentleman giving this product 2 stars, you do not run rods through a conduit you should run a flexible fiberglass snake or a metal snake provided no wires are in the conduit that may have power so shut power off before doing so and use wire lube. You sound like the type of person that should not be doing the work in the first place so don't rate a product low because you are going beyond the limitations of the product and using it for other than what it was designed for.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by derekp very useful
As a homeowner doing a lot of re-wiring on our old house, I'm finding these very handy. I've never had much luck with steel fish tape. These are just the right amount flexible, and a good length. I personally haven't found the glow feature useful so far. The bullnose tip tends to come unscrewed, easy to lose it in the wall as I did. They don't sell replacements of those, apparently. I ended up drilling carefully through the end of one of the rods, which is working well.

I've had my set of rods for about 2 years now and have used it many times. It has worked flawlessly and have almost no complaints with it other than they don't glow quite as brightly as I would like sometimes - still good, but sometimes tough to find at the other end when you are looking for them. Other than that, another solid Klein product.

If you have the older version the difference you will see is the that the newer version is a little thicker in diameter and also has the splinter guard feature.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Coon Klein Glow Rod Set
As a veteran electrician, I have used various brands of glow rods from different companies and the ones that I have found to be the best are the ones made by Klein Tools. They are durable as well as flexable and hold up well on jobsites. They even come with a convient tube to be carried in from job site to jobsite.
