I’ve used one of these tape measures for the past 15 years. They are not as big and heavy as the 25’ ( I always have the 25’ in my tools when needed ) Just love the reach you have when needed.

This is a great tape measure to use for small, simple jobs around the house. It's solidly constructed and functions just like it's bigger brothers. The black that surrounds the body has a rubber feel that provides good grip. The tape itself is metal and can extend a little over 3 feet before it "snaps". Only inches and feet are labeled but the marks in between are clear, distinct, and easy to count. The hook is non-magnetic and has the play like a full-size tape measure. (The hook on the tape measure I bought was black, not chrome looking like the image, for those that care.) I don't have much use for the key chain attached, other that twirling it around on my finger between measures. That being said, I wish this tape had the clasp on the back so I could clip it onto the outside of my pocket, since it might be just big enough to be annoying in your pocket. The button to lock the tape slides and clicks smoothly, and when released the tape reels up with a good amount of force. All told, I'm very happy with this little guy and have made a couple friends jealous. You would be wise to buy it from Home Depot since most other places I saw sold it for twice as much.

    Tape broke way too soon!
    I have been using this for less than a month. I try not to let the tape close at full retraction speed, but it happens. On this tape, it only happened once and the tape split as shown in the photo. Not good!!

      For diyer or general home use, I feel these are the ticket. Great price for two. If I were to use these on a construction site, I feel they wouldn't hold up. The tape blade is too flimsy, the coating on the outside is already starting to peel just from placing in nail bag tape holder. The build quality is not the same as of older models I have . It seems the rule now days is quantity over quality.

      I have been using this Stanley FATMAX 16' tape measure every day for the past 3 months. It's OK, but I have two major complaints: 1) The tape lock is hard to engage and disengage. You might say that's good that it doesn't come loose easy after it's locked, but the slider button is too stiff for me. 2) In spite of the claim and expectation that this "fat" tape would stand alone for several feet of unsupported length, my characterization of this tape is that it is "limp" and folds over too easily. See the attached photo showing how the tape folded over on its own weight when extended less than two feet with the tape held flat side vertical. Frustrating.

        Sorry, I can't buy another Fat Max
        After having a 16' Fat Max break at the 3rd rivet, two months ago, I bought another one. I like the size, shape, and blade. The replacement just broke at the exact same place. The Stanley warranty states that they will not cover the tape if you allow the blade to recoil too quickly. It's a tape measure! I have a Stanley 25', that is over 30 years old. The blade is fine. If the blade slams back too hard/fast, perhaps they should reinforce the blade at that point, or weaken the spring. Normally I don't rant, but there seems to be an issue. I'm looking for another product.
