8 M/26 ft. Magnetic Tape Measure is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from HD: STOP PESTERING YOUR CUSTOMERS HD sent out an automated email at 6:15AM waking me up (my fault for having the phone beside the bed). Okay, HD, you demand a review, you got one. BTW, it's a nice, if rather large tape measure. Nothing special, unless you particularly like the brand name. Ordered it because I've been looking for one that does both metric and imperial units.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from rebuilding a white picket fence. decided to use metric instead of imperial measurements. glad I... rebuilding a white picket fence. decided to use metric instead of imperial measurements. glad I did as its so much easier ( and accurate ) to equally space the pickets. unit is slightly larger than other brands I have ( all non-metric ).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk, don't waste your money Had the tape measure 2 days before the spring broke. Never dropped it and didn't measure anything over 12 ft. I wouldn't give this one star. The only reason I did, was the fact i couldn't post a review without one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Measure Tape This tape really helped me in my project cause the measures are in MM

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not impressed I bought this tape measure for work on the recommendation of a friend. The things I like about it are the vertical measurements and scaling on the underside of the tape , its great for shooting in elevations as well as I like the finger guard if you use a tape measure day in and day out its a nice feature that i really appreciated,thats about where the positives stop. I work in steel fabrication shop and thought that maybe the magnet would help with my work,however I was wrong the exact opposite in fact. The magnets would constantly clog up with steel dust and throw off all my measurements as well as the wide clip on the end was constantly getting hung up on things as well being so large the little "wings" would bend incredibly easily. The blade cracked at the connection with the end clip within days and the stick out isn't very good I will be going back to my fatmax tapes they've lasted me longer and were far better quality. For my use this tape measure was garbage and would not recommend it to anybody in the steel trades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
