Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TNN Happy with the purchase
I was a bit apprehensive about the tape and the quality, based on the reviews. However, after using it, I feel satisfied about both the quality and usefulness. I taped the cable I wanted to pull over the tape, by overlapping both about 5", instead of using the plastic tip of the tape. Reeling in and out is not very smooth; but not too hard, and I suppose it will get better with use. I wouldn't have been able to finish my project without the tape. So, with just one use, I feel it was money well spent

Works great, makes the job that much easier, like having another set of hand to work with.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MtFox Huge time saver
I avoided buying this because I didn't have much to wire--only one room with pretty straightforward logistics--and I really don't want to buy a tool that I'll only use on one job. But I decided to spend $11.50 to keep my frustration in check. As I snaked it past drywall fastened to OSB, along masonry, past studs, and through insulation to meet the wall sconce just a couple feet away, I immediately realized that this is one tool that was worth the investment.

Does the job but does tend to bend somewhat in heavy use. Also, the tip has some square edges that tend to get caught. Solved the problem with minor filing that rounded it off better.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Daved Great fish tape with one minor flaw
I have a 20+ year old fish tape that is beat up, very difficult to put back in the spool, has no fancy end on it other than the end of the wire bent back as a hook, and is bent in a few places from over 20+ years of use and abuse.
I bought this Klein fish tape because: A) It's new, B) It unspools and spools up really easily thanks to the great design of the casing and handle, C) I liked the idea of the tip making it easier to hold the wire on without feet of electrical tape holding it, and, D) let's face it, the orange looks nice and inviting. Even better, it meets or exceeds my expectations for all of those items, even the color. And the cost was not absurdly high for what you get.
All that said, I ended up having to use the 20+ year old tape for the project I initially bought this for because of one flaw: the tip, as fancy as it is, is thicker than my old tape. I was fishing through a fan downrod and the tip of this could not fit through the inside of the rod because of the pin holding the downrod up. It works great for fishing through most situations in drywall, but clearance now has to be a factor when deciding to use this.
Other than that minor flaw, this is a nice fish tape, and I am keeping it for 90% of the other uses I need it for. It's just unfortunate I couldn't use it for the one project I initially bought it for.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by smithykeith Depthfinder Steel Fish Tape for running network cables
I purchased this piece of equipment to help run cable lines above the ceiling. I have never used one before. This fish tape proved valuable when running through pipes that had bundles of cables previously ran. This was a good purchase.
