    I work at a hardware shop and this tape is great for everyday carry. The double sided blade comes in handy all the time.

    Surprised by how inexpensive this was. I didn’t need it but Stabila levels are the best so I figured I’d get this for the name. I’ve used it several times and the tape is solid and the case feels much higher quality than the price I paid. Very happy with it.

    Things that make this a great tape measure: 1) Both METRIC and IMPERIAL. Metric is easier for some things like dividing a distance. If you work with a crew that only does metric (Canada, eh) this is very handy 2) Both sides of the tape are marked, you can read the bottom. Great if you hook the tape on an object upside down. 3) There is an actual hole in the 3rd rivet that you can hook over a small nail or thumbtack. It is at 1" and you can use this to help draw arcs etc. 4) The metal piece at the end, that hangs over the object that you are measuring has a textured surface. It won't slip off the object you are measuring (as easily as one that is smooth) 5) There is a small shock absorbing device on the bottom that dampens the snap as the measure rolls up into the spool. If this were not there the rivets would loosen (over time) and the tape might actually get slightly longer (unlikely). This is a small thing, but will probably lengthen the lifetime of this tool. For something that costs about the same as the others but has these features it seems like the obvious choice.

    Better than avg for being made in China, rubberized case adds to the quality feel
