Does what it's supposed to
After spending several frustrating hours trying to plumb columns in the wind with a plumb Bob, I gave up and bought the GPL5. It was a real pleasure getting the job done in a fraction of the time and more accurately.

Disappointingly limited
I clearly had not thought through how I was going to use this device when I bought it. It works as designed - and I may just not have figured it yet - but, as far as I can gather is essentially worthless outdoors.
Unless there are walls or a "box" of some kind around it, there is nothing to focus on. The laser dot is incredibly difficult to locate and essentially requires two people to wander around until it hits them. The dot is also worthless in determining whether the post you are trying to position are plumb...
For the right purpose I guess it could be useful but I have not yet determined that use.

I use this tool all the time in place of my old plumb bob. Its accuracy is excellent. I really like the magnet for attaching it to my telescoping pole.

Very "Durable" and compact, with "Performance"
Originally, purchased for a home use and now I use it at my job sites, where my staff often drop the unit including me too, yet it keeps performing with a problem, extremely "Durable"!

This will shoot a perfect straight line up down across and forward. I just wish it would shoot a level line instead of just a dot. They need to make a combo.
