hi people, was at work today and broke my mates draw wire so oviously need to replace it, its called a sparado but not sure on the spelling, its like a nylon draw wire but a heavy duty spring type one that travells through all the tube like a dream, im just not sure on the spelling or proper name for them.

any help on sourcing one or the right name/spelling cheers!

Trunking covers can be a bit of a nightmare to fit through 25mm conduit. ;)

If its nylon and well used then its liable to snap due to age/wear and tear. Nowt to do with quality.

Theres a metal draw tape on the market that is decent.

Remember that draw tapes nylon or steel are not meant to be used to draw cable/s through conduit. You should pull in a single cable as the main draw wire.
