At first glance, Greenlee’s CableCaster looks like someone slapped a fishing reel on a toy dart gun — that may be exactly what they did, but the $100 list price is no joke. The CableCaster allows you to pull cable through hard-to-reach spaces, like above a suspended ceiling or through a crawlspace.
Pull the trigger and the CableCaster launches a dart dragging monofilament line up to 50′. Attach your cable to the dart, and retrieve it with the fishing reel.
The gun is yellow and the darts glow in the dark so you can find them easier — at least that’s what Greenlee claims. To better illuminate your target, the top-mounted flashlight holder accepts a mini Maglight.
The price of the CableCaster and three darts varies widely, from $50 to $100. Shop wisely.
