Milwaukee people, You will not like what I will right below,
At our cabinet shop we have two machines using the metric, so I have to get a tape has metric.
Used to have the Husky, but it is discontinued, any way I got for myself TWO of those tapes on line since in California home depot does not carry it on stores.
Purchase date was December 2013, the first one last 5 Month, the tape broke and was too sharp, even though the hosing holding very good still almost new but the tape itself cracked and separated.
So I got the 2nd one out of the packaging, and this one lasted from May to October same thing happened same crack.
Home depot did not exchanged it on store because they do not have similar item on store, so I have to call the on line service and pay for two new ones and will refund the price of old ones after picking the broken tapes from the store.
The on line rep was very polite and understanding, and also offered me a gift cert.
80% of our hand tools are Milwaukee, It was a very surprising that Milwaukee carry this kind of quality,
Pross : the housing is very sturdy, tape color very good and readable, light weight, double sided numbers.
Cons: flimsy and bad tape material did not last 5 month for inside shop usage
Locks not working from day one, it was sooo annoying it retraces back after locking.
I had to get two of the 26 feet this time may be will have better luck, and also for the good review, also no other brand at the market offers metric at double sided. (Stanly tape with metric more lighter and not extended on the air as Milwaukee)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cash Best 16 foot tape on the market
This tape measure out performs any other tape on the market. It is built to hold up on any construction project as well as fine wood working. The tape is able to hold straight without losing strength for an 8-10 foot run in mid air. This tape also never gets kinks in it like competitors. This tape is built to last and I highly recommend. Milwaukee really holds up to its name with this 16 ft tape!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Demitri That annoying retracking sound!
Very good tape, made well, long stand out, light, metric+imperial 5m/16' compact, good price.
But OMG is it only me? That crazy annoying sound when it retracts, barely used it for a day before returning it to the store, fix that sound and ill rate it 5 stars and buy few of those.

The oversized, lightweight tip bends easily and then forget about accurate measurements. I didn't want one side metric but bought the tape measure anyways since Home Depot Canada didn't stock the all imperial version. This turned out to be a mistake and a huge headache. I now use the tape measure as a paper weight in my office.
