Rated 3 out of 5Â by JGregory2 Quality is it's Downfall
A solid, Good tape measure - However I found the lock difficult to engage (especially with gloves), the belt clip was loose on just about everything I clipped it to, and the thing is about twice as heavy as other tape measures.
Blade is great - very readable, accurate, strong, extends out very far when singlehandedly measuring something over 10' long. However, for $25 - I would buy 3 cheaper tape measures and not be so worried about breaking them, as this one seems to be less convenient.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by framersrule Haven't found anything that measures up!!!
This measuring tape is a good size to work with. The numbers are easy to read and the stand out on the blade is great. I have had several of these and you get what you pay for. The tapes are accurate and the hooks, on tapes I have had, never get bent like they do on the cheaper tapes. Why would you by 3 cheap tapes when one great tape will do you?

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bluecoyote The Fat Max Line is tops!
I love this tape measure and like most of the Fat Max line from Stanley is really well designed and good quality. I have used this on two jobs and it has really taken a beating. Still looks as good as the day I bought it and works just as well. I usually break the tape long before a job is finished ... but not this one!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by bokie Quality tape with smooth action
This tape measure works well. It locks easily and dependably and the tape holds straight fairly well without bending or kinking all the time. Smooth retracting action makes it a hassle free tool.

This tape measure appears to be very tough and durable. It also has inches and centimeters. You should always have both in case you need them.
