Comments about CMD Fiberglass Push Pull Cable Rod Kit:

We originally bought push pull rod kits from a local big name hardware store. After a couple months of cable pulls under computer floors and in the ceilings the fiberglass rods began to splinter off into my hands even when wearing leather gloves. Very, very painful. I wrote to that rod set manufacturer to tell them about their dangerous design. They apologized and asked me to send sections of the rods to them for evaluation. They shipped me a higher end set of rods made in Germany that may or may not be coated (I could not get specs from manufacturer). Then I bought these rods which have a polymer coating that will not allow splintering. We have been using these coated rods heavily for several years and they are holding up very well. We use them with bare hands and have had no splinter wounds. I have highly recommended these rods to other Engineering, IT and Building Services departments in our company that do installations. I also highly recommend the LED tip light accessory.

    Comments about CMD Fiberglass Push Pull Cable Rod Kit:

    Well made product and good attachments. I especially like the material used as it (so far) hasn't splintered under pressure or otherwise to cause any slivers. As well, the brass couplers prevent rust and oxidization.
    Hopefully you sell alot more to get the price down as that would be my only 'con' in this review.

        Had to wire a new small office (twelve offices). This rod was a life saver above old suspended ceiling with lots of interferences and insulation. Saved me many hours of work. Its very flexible, which I used to my advantage. May be too lightweight for professional work, but great for me.
