I had just been looking at this tape measure a few days before. I would not buy it a full price, but the on-line deal could not be passed up. As I anticipated, the tape measure is heavy and, compared with my other tape, not so easy to use. It will span 35' rather than 25' for my current tape. The clip at the end will hook an edge just about any which way. The stand-out is unbeatable. I like this purchase and will find many uses for it, but it isn't my first choice for measuring.
