    I have had a Ridgid micro CA-25 for several years. Real basic budget line. More handy than I imagined. 3' flex claims to be waterproof. Have stuck it into a wet pipe before and it still works. About 100 bucks. Just from using this it seems anything longer would be hard to direct into position FWIW.

    I picked up the Lowes special to see why the plug on my Ford van wasn't threading in. I think I paid more than I could have, but I was broke down in a fast food parking lot, so time was essential.

    In any case, it's served well, if infrequently, since then. If I had to do it over, I'd get one that will take still pics. It's one thing to see it, or even show someone; but to email a pic or throw one in with the change order paperworks: priceless!
