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

THis is the one I have always used.  I have had it for about four years.  very reliable

My only advice with this is to use an coax push on F connector because the F connector in this unit is not field replaceable

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!
