Stanley Powerlock Tape Measure 5m/16ft x 19mm
Nice to use
This measure isn't the best value but it's much nicer to use than many. Well weighted and put together. Spring broke on the last one after a disappointingly short amount of time so giving it another chance.

Feels high quality
Bought after becoming frustrated with a cheaper product and this one feels much better made. The tape recoil is damped so doesn't snap onto your hand. The only problem is that the hook at the end has come loose after 6 months DIY use, so it could be about 1mm out, hence performance & reliability marked down.

easy to read, smooth operation, feels quality in the hand. Being stanley you know its accurate.
doesnt have the best standout in the world but then thats what my fatmax tape is for.

Does what it's meant to and really durable. Great replacement for longstanding, trusted tape
