"I had never really considered buying an expensive tape (by that I mean over 99p in the bargain bin) as I've always viewed them as something of a consumable item (because I break so many) Well what a good investment this Stanley max tape was. So well made and robust I'm sure this will last an age. Markings are very clear, the lock is very positive and strong. Smooth operation and the size fits well in my hand. Stanley claim a 2.7 meter stand out which I think is a bit conservative, I have easily achieved almost 4 meters being careful. Very pleased! Just wish invested sooner.."
"This is a very well made tape which feels like it will last for ever. Not cheap but worth the money. Only one small negative point - the marking at the metre points could be clearer and more precise for the user."
