I bought this tape measure for our architect firm -- we have two 25' Stanley tape measures already that are in constant use. One of our newer architects asked if I had ever heard of the Stanley FatMax (I hadn't). I decided to get the 40' length, since we already had the shorter ones. Now the FatMax is the tape that's always being used! Everyone loves the way it stays straight out and doesn't flop over the way the lighter tape measures do. Oh, and did I mention that the price was about the same that I paid for the 25' Stanleys -- also at Home Depot!

I work in structual steel fitting and tend to run into projects just above the 35 foot mark but this 40 foot tape measure tackles the job for me! Very smooth ,great standout , and generally the same price as stanleys 35 foot fatmax! Great buy! Ill be buying another one soon!

I always liked the Stanley products and I had misplaced a bostich 35 rule I received as a gift, so I took the opportunity to buy this 40 foot rule at a better price and I felt was an upgrade. I have a 12 footer and 2 25 footers that has lasted for 15 years with no issue . just needed a longer rule.

I am very pleased with this purchase. Heavy duty. I had bought the 25" tape before and was not a durable as this one. If I ever need another tape measurer this is the deal.

We've used FaxMax tape measures in our Architectural office for many years. We tend to lose them before they have problems. Most of our work is interior. We can always push the tape away from us in a straight line without the tape folding up on itself. We can climb walls with the tape. I have measured 15'+ tall walls with these. I've even been able to get the tip of the measure to the peak of 20' tall house and measure down from there. If there is wind, this won't work but the stand-off of these things is amazing. Highly recommended!
