Sycamore, Ill., March 5, 2010—IDEAL INDUSTRIES Inc. offers their Tuff-Grip PRO fish tape, a significantly improved version of its popular Tuff-Grip tape.

"IDEAL is the most customer-focused manufacturer in the electrical industry, so when it came to redesigning our Tuff-Grip we went out into the field to talk with professional electricians about how best to meet their fish tape needs," notes Bruce Hartranft , IDEAL INDUSTRIES, Inc. "The end result was a lighter, stronger fish tape that is easier to carry, payout and rewind."

One of the highlights of the new design is a larger, more ergonomic handle that results in better control during winding. Thirty percent wider than the first generation of Tuff-Grip fish tapes, the handle easily accommodates large, gloved hands while its non-slip fingertip grooves provide a secure grip and added handling comfort.

Unlike the original Tuff-Grip, the Tuff-Grip PRO is constructed of polypropaline plastic allowing for thicker, stronger yet lighter walls in the case. Extensive drop testing from up to 20 feet in a wide assortment of environmental conditions, including freezing weather, conclusively demonstrated the casing's impressive strength.
