Rated 3 out of 5Â by Veloce Not strictly a one-man tool
Measured fine, and rewound perfectly, but I had to hold the end down with a brick. The usual hooked end would have been very useful.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by HertsDIYer Good Value open frame tape
Got this mainly due to its price, needed to take some measurements of the length of my gardens. How frequently I'll use it, who knows, but it suited for the 10 or so measurements I had to take.
It does what it says on the tin - how robust it is for everyday use by a professional, I don't know. But it is excellent value money.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by GrahamL It's a long tape measure
As other have reviewed the end of the tape is the start, not the end of the hook. Though it does tell you this on the tape, it doesn't help when measuring on your own (unless you don't need to be too accurate)
Framework is plastic and a little flimsy, so you will need to treat it with a little care and place it down rather than just dropping it.
Double rollers help rewinding and handle flips over to prevent it unwinding unnecessarily.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by NickRab Great 50m tape
Excellent value for money. Cleans up well after use. Great rewinding due to two rollers stopping twisting. Would highly recommend.
