FatMax Xtreme Short Tape Measure 10m x 32mm
Love this measure!
Having gone through a couple (or more) cheapo tape measures during my cabin build where they have snapped and twisted, I decided to fork out a little more than usual for this tape measure, and I am not disappointed! It's chunky and long and is VERY sturdy. Great locking mechanism and great blade, also excellent large hook. I think it's a bit sad to say you love a tape measure, but... I LOVE THIS TAPE MEASURE! Wish I had got one of these before I wasted money on cheaper alternatives! It is dubbed "The Beast" and it really is. Recommended!

Long reach measurer!
As the title suggests, this tape is 32mm wide and didn't break at 4 meters! The end hook is substantial and will grip almost anything. I've managed to pull this out to 9600mm and return it with no loss in the coil too.
Overall - an incredibly strong tape and exceptional for external use.

A sturdy tape measure
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.

a bit expensive but the saying goes buy cheap you buy twice, has outlasted all my spare tape measures as I always carry a spare. At first bought this to use for my pricing up jobs as it looks more professional but now I use it on site as well a year on and its still going strong.I accidentally stood on the blade the other day and it bent I was horrified but when I picked it up and ran my finger down amazingly the blade just popped back in position without even a crease. best tape on the market I was thinking about buying another one for my spare but there's plenty of life in the old dog yet
