FatMax Pro Short Tape Measure 8m x 32mm
good professional tape measure
A really great bit of kit for a professional. Due to the fact that the tape will stand out on it's own to a distance of a few metres and it has a large stop on the end, it allows me to measure large distances on my own (without the need of a second pair of hands to hold the other end# and shorter lengths quickly.
It feels large in the hand at first #I use the 8m version), but I now wouldn't be without one. My only criticisms would be a) the price and b) it's still not robust enough for me. The Mylar protection is only applied to the first few inches of the measuring blade, and it inevitably breaks somewhere else. I therefore have to buy a new one about once a year.

fat max tape
really good large print numbers, no need to put your reading glasses on, robust with a good end cap that fits in anyway you can to hold it, only wish they made one longer than 8m 10 or 15 would be even better

Fantastic Tape - Robust
This is a fantastic tape, we have two here at our office which we use for surveying and they are really really good. We have gone through many different tapes in the past whilst this one has still been going strong.
Well protected and excellent metal tip for ease of use.
It may seem a bit pricey but you will go through many more cheaper tapes in the lifetime you have this one.

Very good tape only problem if you would call it that is it is a quite big and bulky
