A decent, sturdy tape measure that has coped with daily abuse well. The magnet is strong,, which makes measuring tasks easier. A good piece of kit.

Not the quality you expect from milwaukee but the tape measures are poor quality. The tape seems to bend and break after a few weeks of use. The numbers a clear and very easy to read but wouldn't recommend it due to the fact its very expensive.

A sturdy well made tape measure. Holds steady when locked and comes with a handy magnetic end which I have not yet used. It has markings on both sides which is useful. It’s been dropped quite a few times from varying heights and so far there has been no lasting damage.

My go to daily tape. Very well made chunky tape, easy to read yelliw blade with a handy scale rule on the reverse side for taking measurements off plans. There is a large blade tip with hooks above and below. The magnet feature comes in very handy when measuring up for steels.

Great clear to read double sided tape. Won’t tear either and feels odd but in a good way. Not sure about the patented design finger stop yet but early days. I’d like a better stand out but I use my fat max for that.

Hi Bought this a while ago and I use it pretty much every day. It's cheap to buy and it's got so much power behind it. I can't recommend it enough.

A little dearer than the stanley ones but have to say its a great tape measure and would definitely buy another one. Used it and abused it a bit, seems to hold up well so far!

I brought one of these to replace a lost Stanley 8m tape. It's good, the nylon tape feels quality. I'm sure it will last for years. Personally I'm glad I found my Stanley as I personally prefer it, that being said I'm more than happy with the Milwaukee as a backup.

I won one of these at a classic car show in Canada. It is brilliant. The best tape I've had by a long shot. Need to measure stuff, it'll do that. Dropped a tool behind a cylinder, the magnet on the end will sort that and its not a flimsy tape either.

Excellent tape. Best one I have had. Doesn’t bend and is very sturdy. Magnet is strong. Good size but not to heavy. Better than the Stanley fat max of the same size.

This is my second tape from Milwaukee. First one was 1st generation the tape is excellent for visibility and durability, the magnet on the tape is strong enough to hold while it is fully extended. Worth every penny

As all Milwaukee tools, quite expensive, but to be fair, probably worth the money (maybe more so as I got a free keyring tool) dropped it a few times and still works great, slides well, magnetic tip is gimmicky, but surprisingly useful and strong. Just a bit on the bulky side, you know its on your belt, which I suppose is a good thing. Recommend.
