The benchmark.

"One of, if not, the best tape on the market.
The long stand-out and large hook are fantastic when working on your own and the tape itself is very easy to read.
It is pricey but as a regular user of Stanley tools I know it will have the build quality to last."

Solid Heavy Quality Product
23 Mar 2013
By TheTopChippy

"I needed a new tape my old Stanley power lock is looking a bit worst for wear,My workmate bought the 10 meter version and that's a beast much to big for me.
Wasn't sure if I wanted the 5 or 8 meter one but after going into the shop and feeling them in my hand decided that this 5 meter one was for me.
Used it today and feels like a good buy The hook takes a little getting used to but after a few goes its fine.
My advice to anyone thinking of getting one is have a "feel" first as they are a lot larger and heavier than the usual tapes on the market.

"It's a Five Metre Tape Measure, it's as good as it's user.
The Blade lock was a little stiff on my one at first but it's getting easier....It's a Tape!"

A sturdy tape measure
11 Aug 2011
By Jack83

"I have used the kind of flimsy tape measures that fold like cheap suitcases when measuring over a few metres. The rigid blade of the Fatmax ensures this doesn't happen and the larger hook makes holding on to edges/pushing against walls and ceilings much more straightforward."

great trade tape

"good tape for roofing in bad weather or just when on your own. the stand alone reach of this tape makes it especially handy to measure if your on scaffold or just on your own. only draw back is its very bulky."

"Firstly even though it is the 5m one. it is pretty massive and a bit big for me but thats down to preference.
