Fish tape recommendation?


Even if you pull one, it will be a problem, due to friction, and that they may have taped the bundle at various points, so that it would be hard to back pull. I would try the fish tape, then go from there.

Fish tape recommendation?


I assume you've already completed this, but if not. Pull from the top down and use wire pulling lube, it should go fairly easy. Unless of course like stated it was taped, although hopefully they knew better than leave wire taped inside a pathway, that is something any data guy should know not to do.
Also the best fish tape for plastic tubing (smurf tube) would be a nylon coated metal fish tape.

Or.....

Tape a rope to the existing Ethernets ( you will most likely have to cut the RJ45 connector off)....then pull all of them out. You will now know exactly how long to make the new Ethernets.

Then use the rope to pull them all back in.....

Oh....and while your at it....add a couple more lines.....I always pull spares.
