Seems to be what it says!

"This is a distinctive tape measure that is easy to spot. It measure accurately and does everything a tape measure should do easily.
I've not owned it sufficiently long to know how long lasting it will be though.
It seems good value for money."

"My previous 8 metre tape measure did 12 years service. This one started playing up on only the second day of use. Conclusion - avoid cheap tape measures."

Not the best tape measure
7 Aug 2011
By Ozzyjack

"not too bad if you a diy inthusiast, but for a plumeber like me should have spent the extra few quid for a stanley, the edges of the tape have ripped quite easily after few uses and when retracted binds up, as i said ok if u diy but tradesman beware!"

Not accurate!
15 Jun 2011
By BuilderReg

"I cut a couple of pieces of timber which were out in size. On investigating and measuring against an accurate Draper tape measure, this was 2mm out over 800mm. Doesn't sound like a lot, but if you want good accuracy this is a complete waste of time. Mine is now in the bin"
