    RGS/IMC

    Never dealt with IMC but we have a lot of conduit run outdoor. they said we can use IMC in lieu of RGS if we choose. I will def investigate but was curious for now if overall one was cheaper than the other. Thanks

    If you don't think too good, don't think too much.

    Is the price different in your software?

    Did you get a quote or even ask a supplier

    What makes it miserable? (maybe a stupid question - I only draw conduit and don't have to bend it thread it or install it.)

    I'd like to know as well. Although it would have to be a real pain in the butt to give thousand foot reels of ENT in sub 40 degree weather a run for its money on the miserable index

    It is harder and more brittle, impossible to thread without new dies, and sucks to bend.

    Other than that, though, it's great?
