There are so many mediocre (or worse) tapes from no-name brands around, that many people don’t even know what a good tape measure feels like!
- Markings are bold, sharp, and clearly printed on the blade
- Grooved grip around the metal body is simple, yet comfortable
- Blade slides out quickly and easily with little friction
- Blade retracts slower to prevent violent blade whiplash
- Sturdy lock holds blade securely
- Sweaty hands and smooth metal-bodied tape measures don’t always mix well…
