Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hauoli Tape is easy to read and is very durable.
This tape is easy to read and is very durable. The tape itself is very strong and can extend a good distance before folding over. Good value and quality for it's reasonable cost.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Redameter The perfect little man gift
I bought this for my son-in-law. He had seen one before and he really wanted one. You know how it is, a twenty dollar item you want, but you figure you can put off buying for a while. He got it for Christmas and I must say you would have thought it was a BMW the way he was looking at it and trying it out. He loved it.
Sometimes the little things mean more than the big stuff. This was one of those presents. He absolutely loved it.

I have had the DeWalt tape measure for about a month now. I love how robust the rubber grips are, it will not slip out of your hands- even sweaty ones.
If you are looking for a reasonably cheap and quality tape measure you can't go wrong with this one. It is quality all the way around.
The only improvement I would say it could use is for the engineers to redesign the lock in place mechanism. It is a little hard to fully engage it but that could be because it is brand new and still needs that break in period. That is the only design feature I would say needs improvement.
If you have strong hands and can manage the sticky lock in place mechanism then this will be perfect for you as it is very tough. If you lack normal hand strength then this might be a little tough for you to use the lock in place feature.
It is smooth to use otherwise. It doesn't have that fast snap back, slap you in the face, issue like most tape measures seem to have. It is excellent and I will get another one if this one ever needs replacing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Grandaddyphil Good standard 30' tape
The tape is fairly ridged and holds out to the footage claimed. It could use a larger foot to grab onto the edge of work piece. For the price I thought a two sided tape would be nice too.

This is a high quality easy to use and very functional tape measure. It has made my projects move along faster because of the good size, weight and flexibility.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nate A little off...
At first this seemed like an excellent buy, it works for around the house and for the jobsite if you're a stick builder or something a little less precise than my job. When compared to my co-workers' tape I was a heavy 16th to almost an 8th off. I bought two of these and needless to say the one that didn't get chucked will be going in the junk drawer in the house. Should have stuck by the FatMax standard!
