    Yep it bound up couldn't pull it back so I put it in reverse. It backed out slow for that 3 or 4 feet then popped loose and pulled out fine. that piece of cable was mangled bad. still can't figure why it wouldn't have flipped outside the pipe. sometimes I'll use a piece of PVC to the right length so not much cable is exposed when I'm in a tough blockage and really cranking on it,but not that time

      That's when the 4' comes in handy.

        that's almost always with 4' or less outside the cleanout I'll have 1 foot or less of cable exposed if need be.

          I flipped my Eel 1.25 HD cables (5/8" IC) in a 6" line. Rodding from a 3.5" cleanout on a 4" CI stack that went through 4" 1/4 bend into 6" clay for 10' then into a 6" tee on its side. Flipped at the tee trying to make the turn. took an hour to get it out. It was my first time rodding the line and I had no idea that the main was laid out that way. Found out after the fact that there was a catch basin in the back that is still active but covered by an addition.

            I hate when they cover active catch basins. There are times the rod will leave the house drain hit the tee for the main and head back up into the catch basin. Knotting up in the catch basin is a royal pain.
