The case is very solid and has rubber padding. The tape lock is good and works just right.
Maybe it was just my unit, but the quality of it had been outstanding. This measure quickly became my primary measure and even though I dropped it a number of times and abused it, it outlasted my other brand name measures, even though I was using them less intence.
Long story short, I lost this tape, or someone stole it from me, so I am buying the same one now.
The LaserJamb PMS25 has both metric and imperial (standard) units on the tape, which I love since I grew up in a metric country but have since moved to the US. It's hard to get the old brain out of metric mode sometimes, so with this tape measure I can yell out a length in feet and inches if I'm working with someone, or stick to metric if I'm working alone.
A cool feature of this tape measure is a white circular area on the side which you can write on with a pencil and wipe off easily. Great if you can't remember measurements. Just write 'em down and take the tape with you. No more writing on scraps of wood!
Oh, there's also a pencil sharpener built into the tape measure - although it isn't a carpenters pencil sharpener (the rectangular shaped ones), it only accepts round pencils. Useful? Maybe. Personally I don't carry around those kinds of pencils.
I was somewhat surprised of the high quality. The blade is think and coated with nylon. It seems to be better constructed than the more expensive brands sold locally. It came with a rubber boot which protects the casing. The side of the rubber boot has a white area which can be used to note measurements - I haven't used it, but it might be useful for some. It has a metal belt clip on the other side. Both the rubber boot and the clip can be removed easily. Mine did not come with a pencil sharpener, but coincidently, I also purchased the smaller sister model (LaserJamb PMS16) which did come with a pencil sharpener and is made with the same quality. Mine differed slightly from some of the pictures above; the pictured measure resembles the smaller model.
As for the blade, it's very clearly labeled with both metric and imperial. The inches are in large print noted down to 1/16 of an inch while the metric is noted in smaller print down to the millimeter.
*Easy to Read markings. I really liked the easy-to-read graduated markings for the 1/16's measurements. I found taking more detailed measurements much easier over several Stanley tape measures I've owned over the years.
*Sliding Tail. (or whatever its called). Also I learned that it's got a unique sliding tail on the end of the tape. Doing a normal read, like measure a tile where you can hook the end on an edge, it slides out to get a "true length". On other readings, like measuring the width from the wall to the nearest tile where the tail isn't hooked on anything but butted-up against the wall, the tail slid-in to account for the depth of the tail itself. I used to manually adjust my measurements for this on other tape measures.
*Durability. I've dropped it several times from a 6ft ladder on concrete and it hasn't shown any sort of damage.
*Erasable pad. When I ordered this I thought it was a nice gimmick I'd never use. But....I found myself using it constantly once I got used to it being there.
The only con I found is the belt clip is a little flimsy. I've stopped using that and instead put it in the pouch on my tool belt.
It's just a tape measure but it's made a big impression on me. I bought two of them and would buy more of them. I highly recommend them to anyone!
The second best thing about this tape is the write-on surface. I use it every time i take a new measurement and it's AWESOME and in a handy spot for when you go to cut. When you're done, just wet your finger and wipe it off.
Regular size pencil sharpener is a nice touch too. I lose so many pencils that I finally gave up on buying the square contractor pencils. Instead I just buy a box of regular pencils and this little tape keeps them sharp for me. I can lose them all I want and just sharpen another one and off I go.
My only complaint would be with regards to overall quality of construction. It does seem a little bit on the cheap side but not nearly as bad as some chinese made products. We had the tape get hung up on something and it developed a tiny crack on one side. That crack eventually led to the whole tape breaking and sending it back inside the body making it unusable. I opened it up and found an overall cheap construction inside. I contacted the company and they were very responsive and offered to send me another one out at no charge. It's been about 2 weeks now and I still haven't received it and don't know if I ever will but the company behind this tape measure sounds like they care about their products and their customers.
Overall I am giving it a 4 star rating. I don't want to go back to a regular tape ever again, but I don't want to have to buy another one of these every few weeks either. We'll see how it goes......
