Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Handy Sorry, I can't buy another Fat Max
After having a 16' Fat Max break at the 3rd rivet, two months ago, I bought another one. I like the size, shape, and blade. The replacement just broke at the exact same place. The Stanley warranty states that they will not cover the tape if you allow the blade to recoil too quickly. It's a tape measure! I have a Stanley 25', that is over 30 years old. The blade is fine. If the blade slams back too hard/fast, perhaps they should reinforce the blade at that point, or weaken the spring. Normally I don't rant, but there seems to be an issue. I'm looking for another product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Teeds My go to tape
I have numerous Fatmax tapes that I carry, but the 16 foot version is my go to tape that I carry all the time. I have one that is on my hip if I'm on a site and one in each vehicle so I cna grab one at a moments notice. Easily 95% of all the measurements I need are 16 feet or less so this tape is perfect. I have the 20, 25 and 35 foot versions should I need them but they are in the job boxes, not on my hip.

I like the large numbers on this tape measure and it is easier to see and get a more accurate measurement.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MacEwen Great compact tape measure
Great tape, for in the pocket, and on the go. It's nice a compact. Also, pretty accurate. Nice and springy return action. I recommend it. I keep one in my key rack, and one in my desk drawer. Handy!
