This tape measure is built well. And although I agree that if you don't need metric it can be distracting, to me there is a bigger distraction. The 1/2" marks are as long as the on-inch marks. The tape itself must have been designed and built in a metric based country. It is not intuitive.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by spud It is of no use to me.
I find having metric and SAE on the same tape confusing. Effectively it makes one side of the tape unusable to me. It reminds me of the cheap dollar store tapes that have so many markings they are difficult to read.

One of the very few measuring tape in cm available. Should carry more choices

I bought this as a replacement for an older, trusty Stanley tape measure. Upon opening the (difficult) blister pack I was shocked to discover the case was shiny plastic and NOT metal! Concerned that it would break the first time I dropped it, I returned it to the store.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Anhaica WHO NEEDS METRIC?!!!
After a long lifetime of being able to mark off of either side of a tape measure, both showing the English system of feet & inches, along comes this THING with METRIC markings along one side which doesn't just make one side utterly useless, the cognitive dissonance involved makes me not want to use this tape measure at all... so I'm using my old tape measure of the same brand. The THING is probably headed to the LANDFILL!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GWBudd Excellent Quality Imperial / Metric Scale
The company always makes excellent quality product but it should considering the cost of the product. We have purchased this product several times over the last couple of years and use them on a daily bases. As long as rule does not get kinked it will last years of service. It is one of the few rules that have English (Imperial) and Metric scales on it. The product retraces well and locking mechanism work fine as long a rule surface is kept clean.

Does what I need. Not all stores know they carry this item. Wish they carried it in a 10meter length.
