Big Buddy Duct Rodder & Accessories

A Quality Product Made in America

Jameson's Big Buddy Conduit Rodder features a 1/2" OD rod for fishing in 4-inch diameter and larger conduits. The weight of the longer rod is supported by an oversized frame equipped with a handle and heavy-duty wheels for easier transport. The Big Buddy is available in 400' to 1,500' lengths, making it ideal for long run cable pulls and manhole-to-manhole runs.
