Seriously who uses these things? A landscape guy? Definately not a real Carpenter. Everytime I go the store there is a newer bigger fatter tape that takes a trailer to haul around and has a hook on the end of it the size of a ford bumper. Wahtever happened to sticking to what actually worked? I usually use the 25 ft stanley tapes that are chrome and seem to have gone out of style with all the new cool guys. By the way they dont stand out fifteen feet, but they are usually ten bucks or less and are just as accurate as they were when they just came out.
