Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Trever Poor quality
I bought a Lukfin Premium Chrome tape measure...after using the tape for 3 days on the job the tape is crimped and bent...I sent a note to Lufkin and got crickets...Stick to a Stanley Fat Max...as Lufkin doesn't seem to care about the quality of their products.

I touched it after moving into my new house, got. New tools. Got this. I used it thought nothing of it. Turns out there's a ugly yellow residue on the actual tape measure part. Unpacked more stuff. The residue got on my hands. Started to unpack stuff. I realized there was a yellow stain on everything. I tried washing it out of my stuff, would not come out of anything. It like sunk in. But it's not like it got on anything important, like maybe my new $500 iPad. (sarcasm) it stained so much important stuff. I am so mad right now. Nobody buy this or you will be full of regret.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by playinthedirt81 Disappointed!
Did not realize when I ordered that the tape measures had all the measurements written on it as well as the mid points. It is very difficult to read the actual measurement. I purchased a dozen of them for a high school wood shop class... the students do not like them either. Very disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by row1340 self center tape measure
A good tape for my needs; Great if your looking to find the center of a measurement, which I do a lot in my wood shop. Lufkin has been around along time. If you're not looking for a self center tape there might be others out there that will suite your needs as well. I have had a Lufkin self center tape in my shop for years. It has always met my needs.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ArchitectMark Very specialized
This tape measure is very specialized. I was hoping to use it for everyday use as well but I failed to notice that the "half" measurement is actually significantly more prominent than the regular measurement. I find it useful for finding the center of a measurement, but not for everyday use.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by deckbuilder Everything is good but .........
Overall quality and value on this tape measure is actually not bad, but you can hardly see the foot incredment unless you have a reading glasses on - i.e. it shows 96", 108", 120", 132" & 144" in large fonts, but 8 ft, 9 ft, 10 ft, 11 ft & 12 ft in very small fonts. Unless you have good eyes or good in math, you will find yourself converting from inches to feet all the time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by amateur has the fractions printed on the tape
Really like the fractions on the tape and the middle measurement printed directly across from your ending length. Ex. 12 inch length has a 6 inch middle
