"The measure is a decent size without being overly bulky like some of the Fatmax measures are. Good retraction spring and the brake holds it well. Having the markings on both sides of the tape is surprisingly useful - until you have it you don't realise how often you use the markings on the underside. The only other feature I'd like it to have is a magnetic hook on the end. Otherwise it's good."

Review 4 for Advent Dual-Printed Blade Tape Measure 8m x 25mm
"Was really pleased with this tape measure - really nice readable scale (matt finish makes a difference), secure and usefully-shaped end-hook, lovely action and good size. Would have happily given it 5 stars. However, had it about 3 months, and the internal spring just unwound itself whilst I had about 1.8m of tape out, leaving me with a non-retracting tape measure. Not very useful - will be taking it back to Screwfix for refund."
