Has very good reach, over 10-11' without collapsing. Like the controlled retract feature that allows the recoil to stop and start with the control of the button.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JJ JUNK!
I have been a union tradesman, Sheet Metal Worker, for the past 15 years. I have used Stanley tape measures exclusively for all of those years. I recently purchased model # FMHT33338L from Home Depot for $25. I have to tell you that it'll be my last Stanley purchase. The tape measure is absolute junk. The gauge of the steel being used is not sufficient for practical use. The slightest twist of the tape body allows the tape to buckle like a house of cards! It may be good for "Henry Homeowner", but for those of us that use their tape on a daily basis, this won't cut it.

This is a great tape. I always go back to buying more of this tape.

The auto lock feature was a good idea, but it only works some of the time. There's no back up locking feature to keep the tape extended when the auto feature fails. Also the tape twists easily so extending the tape sideways is very frustrating. The clip tends to slip off of studs easily. This is the worst tape measure I've owned! Although I could just have a defective one.

I like the option of auto hold of the measurement with ease of retraction. Very sturdy - been out in the field with it a few weeks and can tell it's a worthwhile investment. Even contractor was eyeing it and saying he needs one!

I lIke this tape alot. Fits in my hand well, easy to use button to lock or real back up. It's not too wide unlike the fat max. I like the slender design. I think Stanley should offer personalized engraving the way Plano used to do with their fishing tackle boxes. Everyone writes their name on it with a sharpie, usually it wipes away after a month or so. Just a thought.
