Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tuff It's tuff. I've bumped, banged , even dropped from more than 10' & it's still working great. Magnet is pretty strong also. Down side is, it is big & bulky, but it's a 26' so I guess that's expected. I didn't expect the weight tho. You deff know its on your pocket! That would probably be my only complaint, it is heavier than I expected. But deff not so heavy that I don't want to use it. Great Tape. January 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heavy Duty Tape Measure My tape measure wish list was met with this tape. Work overseas so English/Metric is an absolute must. Next the length is good--typically may need to measure something around 20 - 25 feet. The tape can stand out a long distance before buckling. Good and accurate end clip with a magnet and auto-return that you can slow down or stop with your finger. The bonus touch is the scale on both sides. August 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by redder & better This! I have to read blueprints and layout in either metric or imperial depending on the project. This tape is at least as good as any other, BUT the magnets on this are awesome & actually secure, the wire 'belt' clip hasn't shredded my pockets edge, and the front/back measuring increments are handier than you'd think. I've had to buy 2, because my first one without my name on it 'disappeared'. Hate to say it, but that good. A few other guys I work with have legit bought it as well. May 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Very well built. Over-engineered and doesn't feel like a cheap piece of junk. December 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very deluxe I really like this tape measure. It has metric and imperial units and it has a number of other great features. I have only had it a short time, but it has performed well. November 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tape! Great tape. Nice matte finish on both sides of tape. Easy to read. I have to measure a lot in metric, so I had to special order and ship to the store for this version. HD only carried the INCH ONLY version in store. My only complaint is that it does not sit flat when measuring. I extend tape across surface and lock the tape...I can't let the tape go to make marks because it falls over. Other than that its great for doing site measurements. December 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best tape. Best tape I ever used. Over sized hook will hold on just about anything. It's open on the bottom front so you can slow the tape without getting your finger pinched, the belt hook slides on much easier than the usual flat style. It's a little on the heavy side and tape standout is not quite as far as Fatmax but those are my only minor complaints. I can't speak to longevity since I've only had it about a month or so but the build feels solid. The architectural scale on the tape's back side is a very nice plus. October 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 8 m/26 ft Quality Product It is bulky for a 25 foot tape, that is the only complaint (for many, I don't mind). A positive note on this however is that its almost as useful as a brick to defend yourself in a dark alley. If you don't specifically need the metric go with the standard version (there are 4 models 16ft, 16ft/5m, 25ft, 26ft/8m). As with all the Milwaukee tools I have purchased the quality is top notch and the design features make life easier (finger stop/control behind the tape stop for example). I would not worry about this breaking if it fell off a roof I was working on. The tape blade also is very difficult to get bends/crimps in (for a tape blade). The clip is very durable, if a bit tight new. It also looks easily replaceable. The lock is easy to use. I can get just over 100in in extended before the blade buckles/falls. All the markings on the tape are easily readable. With the coating I don't think there will be a wear problem. October 23, 2013
