    I had asked this some time a couple years, I use the advanage 8 way mapper and it works nice but sometimes it wont read if there is a clear barrel or even if there is a orange or blue one. my wtl can come in with his pocket toner and find the lines just fine but i want something that has more than one finder cap. is there another brand that may fit my needs if you guys have had some experience

    LOL!

    Looking behind a TV cabinet that I worked on years ago and see a forgotten ID cap on the extra sat line I ran is something that has happened to me more than once!
