Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Much improved 2nd generation!!! I have the 1st generation of this level in both 24" & 72" & Empire has made some great improvements with the 2nd generation. 1. End caps are now a nice rubber instead of hard plastic & are also removable (I would assume replaceable also) 2. Hand grips are a nice grippy rubber, not cheap plastic 3. Edge of the level is not as drastically beveled as the previous version The level itself is very sturdy & looks nice. It is advertised as incredibly accurate, more so than I would ever be able to notice. The blue vials are a little more difficult to see than the normal yellow, but maybe that's just me. If you decide to buy an Empire True Blue® level, do yourself a favor & make sure it is the 2nd generation which will have all black end caps & hand grips, and also have "e2G" somewhere on it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by not a true 8 foot level First of all, this is not a true 8ft level. It is a 7'-8" or or 92" level. The rubber end caps are not the exact size as the aluminum frame. I needed an 8 footer to set the posts and beams of a large deck. Home Depot had 5 of these in stock. 3 were gen 1, and 2 were gen 2. All of the rubber end caps had shrunk anywhere from 1/32 to 3/32 and it would be impossible to get a true level reading if one end was on the aluminum, and the other end was on the rubber end cap. I bought the best one I could find and had to add 4 wraps of electrical tape to one end cap, and 6 wraps to the other end to get the end caps flush with the aluminum body in order for it to read "true level". Maybe the end caps are flush when they leave the factory, but shrinkage takes it's toll over time. I recommend all other pros look for another brand, but if you still decide to get this one, pick up a few rolls of electrical tape also. December 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by durable great quality and attractive styling. easy to read. October 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Solid, simple, accurate If you need to span nearly eight feet for leveling, this unit will do the job for you. No lasers or tones, just an accurate bubble level. Aluminum body should resist warp better than a wood body. Compliant endcaps at each end prevent the level from being damaged -- or damaging something else. Can't vouch for the claimed accuracy of the bubble units, but seems reasonable. A top read window for the center vial makes it easier to read the unit without stooping. January 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great professional level Empire makes great measuring products and this level is no different. I use this level to measure longer applications such as flooring, joists, and steel structure. I couldn't be happier. Not only accurate, but built solidly in case it gets dropped or stepped on. All in all a great professional tool. February 15, 2014
