Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wyo91 NOT dewalt quality!
I have always used cheap tapes because that's just the kind of man I am but I decided to splurge a little on a new one, I went with dewalt due to their rep. But this has let me down. The hold out is in ideal perfect conditions. I can hardly get 5 ft. Out vertical without it bending over and forget about it if there is any wind. Also the retraction is horrible and almost non existent. I end up manually pulling it back. The lock is outrageous as well. Hard to depress and almost impossible to unlock. No easy thumb hold for quick reads. I regret buying it every time I use it but I severely overpaid for it. Next time I will stick with the 5$ option.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jrc Durable tape with a working man's standout
I have used the Dwalt 13' standout tape for four years now and am very pleased with its durability. Also, the large hook allows for accurate measurements during tough framing conditions.
The tape is heavy and awkward at times, but will get the job done when you learn how to use it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ValP Good product, bad packaging
This 25 ft. tape measure is very heavy duty. It is also very heavy. The 1" wide tape is nicely stiff for a long reach and the numbers are large enough to see clearly for those of us who are visually challenged. A pair of really heavy duty scissors (not allowed to use the correct name for the tool in this review) is needed to break the tape measure out of the packaging. The tape measure case also has a handy clip built in, but this was strongly clipped into the packaging in such a way it was difficult to figure out how to separate the two.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TXrider very durable
DeWalt tape measures are very durable (hardly ever break the stop tab off!) and with the wide blade and bold numbers are very easy to read.

The measuring tape is easy to use, light weight and accurate.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Laddie Doesn't bend but difficult to retract
Used this tape several times in the past year. Now it is very difficult to retract the last two feet of tape. Seems to be binding. I would expect better from this costly a tape.
