    Going to be networking my flat, running cables between stud partitions, and above the ceiling. Been looking through the web, and there appears to be various opinions on fish tape, fibre glass stuff etc, and feeding cables through.

    Any recommendations and suppliers?

    Hello Timbo,

    Cable rod or the capping from YT1 trunking.

    Buy the 1M rods, as the short 'tool box' 350mm rods will not be long enough.

    Not sure if those are best prices, but they are the first ones from a google search.

    The magnet and chain can be useful for fishing down a cavity.

    The nylon coils of 'fish tape' are OK down a conduit, but not much use down a cavity or across a ceiling.


    Mark.
