the professional is more precise in the measuring but unless small amounts of accuracy is not needed won't notice the difference.

Does it have the inches printed on it for measuring

Great little torpedo level!!
Having a magnetic strip makes a huge difference as it allows my hands to be free!! I use this level mainly to level off things I hand on the wall or for installing brackets for shelving. The vials are very easy to see and the compact size makes storing very easy!

You want to know if its level... Your in a tight spot, sure you can eye it and be done with it... but with professional tools you will get professional results. The Empire True Blue 9 in. Professional Torpedo Level comes in handy at only 9" in length and has three vials that are easy to read and can provide a true and accurate reading, to get the job done... The magnetic strip is an added bonus for when your installing metal shelving for hands free operation, or just want to attach it to the side of your tool box for easy and handy access... Empires backs this level with a full lifetime warranty, Need I say more?

This level is great for tight spaces and practically essential for leveling appliances. It is easy to use and the markings are very clear even in low light. There are multiple views top and side. I like the extra features like the magnetic and beveled sides, a fantastic bargain.

I mostly like it, need to think about that magnet
I used this to level my breaker box for my garage. I know, not something that really needs leveled. But my garage was built 43 years ago and is not very straight. The magnet worked very well. I had another level from an outlet store that would not stick when vertical. This one does. However, the magnet may be a little too strong. I placed it on the floor and little metal filings stuck to the magnet. I don't know where they came from, but they were difficult to remove. I dropped it and it did not break on the concrete floor! My other brand shattered.
