1.) The tape is flat. Simple concept but with huge benefits. Easy to see your measurement on a flat surface, easy to mark it on a flat surface. No need to rock the tape to its side to get an accurate mark.
2.) The metal tip does not move! This tape measurement provides consistent measurements because the tip does not slide back and forth. I never understood why tape measures do this. I'm not a professional so I may be missing something but getting a different measurement depending on whether you are measuring from the inside or outside of something has always frustrated me. Not ideal for fine woodworking where precise, consistent measurements are important.
3.) It has easy to see 1/16" markings. Gone are the days of counting the tiny lines to get your precise measurements. You get your 1/16" measurements FAST!
4.) Writable and erasable surface. Forget about fumbling for a piece of paper to write down your measurements. Do it on the side of this tape measure! Then erase it when your done. Genius!
5.) Built in pencil sharpener. The convenience of this is self explanatory. This was kind of an Easter egg feature as I don't recall reading about it before I bought this. NOTE: this is only for round pencils, not carpenter pencils. Another GENIUS feature.
6.) The clip has a thumb lever so you can open it manually when clipping it on something. No need to force slip it into your belt or pocket.
I still use my regular tape measure when I need something that stays straight without holding on to something when measuring at a distance. Other than that, it stays on my pegboard and this tape measure stays with me.
In my woodshop I keep a tape measure within arms-length of any stationary tool, so that means I have 8 tape measures nearby at any given time. Not to mention the straight rules, squares, etc. I'm finding myself moving my workpiece (when not gigantic) to my central assembly table, where I keep this tape measure, just because it is so nice to use.
It is a super fast measuring tape in the woodshop. No longer do you need to push a side of the traditional tape measure down to the surface of what you're measuring; this tape is already there. With traditional "bent" measuring tape I used a speed square to help lineup the measurement on both sides of the tape, but there is no need to do that with this one.
If you're doing a lot of flat measurements (plywood, 2x4s, rough lumber off the sawmill, etc) in the shop then you should invest in this tape measure. It will speed you up. I would advise having both this kind and a traditional one though. Once you move from a flat surface or need to measure against gravity (up a wall for example) you're going to want the traditional tape measure.
However because of this design the tape will never be rigid so trying to get it to go long across anything will never happen.
I expected this though and I think it's worth the trade off for accuracy.
