You could try for fibre patch leads. I've just checked and
they do work out slightly cheaper, along with free delivery. I am
affiliated with them.

I don't have any "proper" specs, but I've been doing a bit of
this over recent months. The acceptable bend radius will be **much** less
than you will ever achieve with 6" ducts ;-) but assuming that wasn't
your actual question, I reckon I've gone down to 1" with no problems.
I get a bit paranoid with the handling of the leads but I think they're
actually much tougher than they appear.

The best price I've found for fibre patch leads was this company: (if that link doesn't work, Google for "Cablenet
Trackmaster", they're located in Lightwater, Surrey)

I've no affiliation, I've just used them on recent jobs and have been very
please with both quality and service :-)) (there is a GBP 9 carriage charge
though . . .)
