            I don’t know how many people are claiming that this tape measurement is good. The plastic stopper wears out and the tape doesn’t stop. This is my 2nd one and it is the same problem. I went with a fatmax and that is a good tape measurement.

                    Poor Quality Tape
                    Used a few times before the locking mechanism quit working. Milwaukee quality has dropped off a cliff.
                      good for site inspections
                      I got this for site inspections. The numbers are large so it photographs well. The tape isn't so fat that it is a pain to carry or put in pockets. I can use it while wearing gloves. Fractions of an inch are displayed as well as foot + inch increments.

                      Broke the third time using
                      Seemed like a nice tape, fairly priced. I was extremely disappointed that the it jammed up and essentially became unusable on the third time using it.

                          NOT 12' Reach
                          Overall this is a very good tape measure, esp. for the price. However, the web description says 12' Reach. On the package, it specifically says 9' Reach. It does extend 9' without collapsing but there is absolutely no way this can be extended 12'. Despite this, a very nice product.
