They claim the difficulty of pulling wire is proportional to the surface area of conduit that the wire comes in contact with. The corrugated design reduces the surface area by about 50%.

Hmmm...makes sense about the surface area, but what about the wire catching on the corrugations?

When I ran the cable to connect my Point-to-Point Wireless Modem in the attic to my Firewall in the basement, I had to feed about 8 to 10 feet into the tube before the weight of the cable began to do the feeding on it's own.

Anyway; it's all moot now...
