this milwaukee five foot flex fishing stick is just what i would need to run some cables through the house. it is flexible yet sturdy fiberglass and glows in the dark so it will be visible to run an ethernet cable through the wall from the basement to the first floor. overall quality is very good, and the end is threaded so you can connect another piece to make longer if needed.

This is a nice fish stick. From my pics, you can see the glow in the dark is pretty solid. The high flex of this stick would be perfect for fishing wires in those tight spaces behind drywall, etc. Overall I am pleased. I had to deduct a star because it seems as though the threading size of this fish stick is different than other brands that I have. I have multiple other brands of attachments as well as two different branded fish sticks and all of the attachments, etc are the same size. This fish stick is smaller so you'd have to specifically make sure you get the right size attachments. This might be on purpose by Milwaukee so you purchase Milwaukee brand attachments only.

Having used fish tapes for decades, using this High Flex fishing stick was a major improvement. The stick was able to flex almost as well as the fishing tapes and its ability to get behind insulation and stay there, not getting bound up was a huge benefit. Instead of dreading fishing wire in an insulated wall, these make it much easier. For short pulls, especially in outside, insulated walls, this was majorly better than the old fish tapes I used. The glow in the dark feature was also really helpful in finding the stick. With the fish tapes, I've often had issues feeling inside the wall to find the tape. With this stick, its glow in the dark features makes it a breeze to find by sticking a mirror inside the opening. I have two of these which allows this to be used to span an entire floor. The connections are very solid as I was able to pull quite hard without breaking the tool. The bullet nose tip has a very large opening, allowing me to pull all the conductors together in most 14 and 12 AWG NM-B wires. Often, using my old fish tape, I had to snip some of the conductors and pull using only the ground, carefully taping the snipped conductors to avoid getting them stuck during the pull. No issues with the wires falling off the end of the fish tape either when I needed to pull and push the ends to get past obstructions. The connection remained rock solid pulling on the stick and pulling on the wires in the other direction to navigate tough pulls. The high flex stick can easily bend to a radius that allows me to fish the stick from an outlet near the floor without overly flexing the stick. The only regret I have is not getting some of these long ago. Highly recommend this quality piece

This is a great option if you are looking for a ‘High Flex’ fish stick. It also matches was I was expecting from a flex standpoint. I have significant experience with running/fishing various types of wire and the right equipment makes all the difference. My observations: • This High Flex fish stick includes the 5’ stick and a bullet nose tip. • I like the clear, colored markings along with the larger font to clearly see which stick I’m grabbing. I took a photo of the font to demonstrate this. • The glow in the dark is important to me and plenty bright enough for my applications. • These sticks all connect to each other allowing you to build a long enough stick to get where you need to go. • With this being ‘high flex’ you expect a lot of movement and it indeed has plenty of flex. I took a photo showing the amount of flex I was able to apply to it. Again, the flex is exactly what I would expect and matches what is advertised. • I found the connections easy to thread even with gloves. I also expect to see no issues even in wet environments. • Based on my usage and inspection I found zero issues with this fish stick. I’ve gotten used to high quality products from Milwaukee and this easily met my expectations. I fully recommend.

I did not realize when I ordered, but was pleasantly surprised to discover that the fish stick is glow in the dark. When working inside walls and unlit ceilings, which is often the case pulling wire, the glow in the dark feature makes it much easier to locate the rod. Additionally, the ability to thread multiple rods together provides long reach, minimizing the need for additional holes to patch. The rods are well built and able to push/pull through insulation with the high flex allowing you to pull through moderate curves.

The Milwaukee 5 ft. High Flex Fish Stick Fiberglass fish stick is a huge help for adding outlets, switches or lights in existing walls. The stick is 5 feet long and has a bullet nose tip that you use to push or pull the wire, cable or a pull string through a wall. You can unscrew the bullet tip and connect two or more rods together. This is the high flex version and the most flexible. If you need to run some wire down an existing wall this is a great tool for doing that. Highly recommended

We've been working on various projects throughout the house that require a number of wiring and electrical applications. My most favorite was fishing 6 gauge wire 80ft through random channels, walls and joists from our garage to our panel located in the basement. This project was to hook up a 240v breaker and plug for our electric vehicle. Several of the straight runs were no match for regular fish tape, and required something more rigid to get through the voids. The Milwaukee Tools 5 FT. HIGH FLEX FIBERGLASS FISH STICK was the perfect solution to tackle the challenging runs. It also glows in the dark which is cool and helps you find it in dark wall channels. Definitely recommend the product.

This fish stick is very flexible, it can be bent into a circle and still flex back. It came with a loop tip that screws onto one end of it. The loop is plenty large enough to attach small rope to string to it. The fish stick also is visible in the dark. I didn't hold any light to it when I took the picture just took it outside for a couple of minutes. You can purchase more stick it make it longer if need be. There is a male and a female screw end on each stick.

I really like these flex sticks. In the industrial setting, I have not had any use for them yet. However, one of the crew borrowed two of the sticks to pull wire Romex through the walls. Fish tape does not work in this scenario, but the flex stick is perfect. What is real nice is the attaching the thicker stick to the lighter, more flexible stick. This works great when you need the rigidity for half of the pull and flexibility for the 2nd half.
