Stanley Blade Armour Powerlock Tape Measure 8M/26'
Good quality tape measure
A good quality tape measure, sturdy in construction & design and having the wider tape makes the numbers easier to read

Nice tape, good quality. But why isn't there a metric only range of tapes?

Good strong tape
Durable, strong, holds straight over about 2.5m under its own strength, a tad on the heavy side but durability makes up for it

Looks good, but doesn't last.
I have time & again bought this tape to replace the same, as the company I worked for would pay for them. When they fail & it doesn't take long. (used daily at full stretch not overstretching) it will go crunch and that is the end of it, you will have to manually reel it back in, and when you measure again it will not retract. Try as you might you won't get it going again, unless you're brave enough to open it up (I don't recommend you do). Nice blade, smooth action, good feel in the hand, looks good, you'll look the part with it, but you'll be replacing it within months, if you don't mind that, buy one, otherwise look for something more reliable.
