Rated 2.9 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Useless I had the same experience as several of the other reviewers here. After two or three uses (yes, that few), it got harder and harder to retract and then expose the tape. As I kept trying to reel it in, the casing pushed apart and wire came out of one of the spaces between where the outer casing is screwed together. At that point, there's no way to get it all to go back in. What a waste of money. June 23, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Time Saver I purchased this so I could run a new power and cable outlet in my bedroom wall. The Fish Tape made my job so much easier. May 19, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't waste your time or money This is absolutely, without peer, the worst experience with a tool I have ever had. I've worked with tight tapes before but this is just unusable. There is no way anyone could have designed this product and tested it in a practical manner, and been satisfied that it would fulfill any purpose except frustrating the user. December 19, 2009
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible product Bought the 1st one and had to completely unscrew it and re-real it on. Took it back and bought another thinking that it was only one defective tape....second one can't get past 5 feet. Taking it back today...should have read the reviews. March 4, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jams up after only a few uses This product, as others have stated, jams up after only a few uses. Useless. August 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Very good buy Really easy to use and very good quality,and if your a Veteran they will even give you 10% Discount,,,YAY April 21, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Klein Fish Tape Works great for pulling wire and cable through conduit and awkward bends through bulkhead penetrations, etc. Recommend the Klein accessory to this - braided cable "Chinese finger cuff" on a swivel. For power cable bigger than #6; or for two or Cat 5/6 cables, this item saves you a lot of taping My only problem with the fish tape (hence to 4-star versus the typical 5-star rating I'd give most Klein tools I own - it's a pain to wind back onto the reel unless you have a helper pushing it to you, and if he's over-zealous...*cough*... there's a good chance he'll put a kink in the tape. Your mileage may vary.; and over time, as the reel breaks in and gets a few shots of silicone or graphite lube, I expect it will self-correct. March 12, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Piece of Junk Plastic separates and makes it impossible to retract this fish. You waste more time fumbling with the fish then fishing wire. I'm a supporter of Klein but this product is terrible. April 10, 2015
