Did you ever have to split a 2x6? Well, to start with, nowadays, it's 1 & 15/32 by 5 & 15/32 (if the lumber folks haven't shrunk it yet again). Then you have to figure in half the thickness of your saw blade (usually somewhere around 1/8). By now my head's aching before I even get out my calculator to divide 15 by 32 (for the decimal equivalent), "decimalize" the thickness of the saw blade, and begin adding it all up to divide by two. Yes, there's the intersecting arc system, and probably others. But if you've ever tried simply measuring and figuring in millimeters, you'll immediately wonder how many mentally tortuous hours you've wasted doing it the dumb ol' English (feet, inches) way. Heck, the English themselves rarely use it.

Now that my rant is over, I must say this tape measure works great, with good stability and returnability. It also includes the foot and inch markings, which I try to ignore.

This tape measure is very good and the price is great! It is light enough to not weigh you down, but has enough weight to have a solid durable feel. The rubber coating is great for preventing dings on wood and flooring. This tape measure is very compact in size and is great if you are looking for a smaller sized tape measure. The white background is also very useful and easy to read. Some of the Stanley yellow tape measures can be hard to read depending on the lighting.

Having both feet and meter on the tape measure is extremely useful. Why? Because so many times there is a need to make a precise measurement that falls somewhere in between the fractions of inches, like 3/32 and dividing it in your head quickly is a pain. It's faster when you can just switch over to the metric side and divide the mm and not have to deal with fractions. Also, sometimes construction hardware is on the metric system, such as 96mm cabinet handle pulls, and Blum hinges, etc. So I end up using this tape measure much more than my feet/inches-only tape measure which is now sitting in my toolbox collecting spider webs.

I bought this tape after a strongly favorable review in a building rag. For the most part, it lives up to its hype. It is easy to read, not overly large for the tape it encloses, has a robust hook to tape fastening, and a nice anti-shock retraction feature that will most likely allow the tape to live a longer than normal life. It is certainly a strongly built tape. When I'm not wearing my tool belt I don't like clipping a tape onto my belt and don't bother with the belt holster I bought years ago, as a result I tend to hang it off my back pocket. The down side of this is that the tape gets bumped off pretty easily. I don't know how many times I've knocked the tape loose while working up on the roof. It slides down the roof, down onto the ground, and bounces to a stop somewhere on the site. So far, not a hint of damage other than a few cosmetic scuffs.

The few flaws I've found are annoying, kind of like finding a fly in an exquisitely delicious bowl of soup. The tape lock lever is fairly ineffective. Unless you pay especially close attention, the tape just retracts itself. I've also found the end hook to be less effective at holding onto corners than other tapes that I've used. I can't see anything specific that would cause this. I just know that usually it won't hold itself on a corner, regardless of the amount of tension I keep on the tape.

Bottom line, a good tape with a few annoying flaws. Would I buy one again? Probably.

Update: 01/07/09 - Original rating 4 stars, updated rating 2 stars.
One item I didn't mention in my review above was that the tape itself seemed to get little nicks and kinks in it much easier that other tapes I've used. Until today, it was just a little niggle that I ignored in an otherwise great product.

I am a pro trim carpenter who has to use the tape measure constantly. I got this tape as it was recommended by another to be more accurate when pushing against a object to measure, then hooking on to the end of the board to cut. For that it is great. It also fits my hand nice. Also the white is a relief to my eyes after 10 years of reading yellow tapes and level bubbles. It is a bit filmsy though and has already after just a couple weeks of use on the job developed several kinks that are sure to develop into a break. My fatmax tape took more than 6 or more months to develop these same kinks. Also like someone else mentioned, it is a little harder to hook on to the end of the wall or board and have it stay hooked when pulling tight. I attribute that to the filmsiness of the tape which allow the hook to roll up and away. I haven't had any problems with the lock, and like that the hook is protected from falls as it has taken alot of drops. Also the belt hook loses its tightness, and I have already taken it off and pinched it tight. First tape I had do that in 10 years. If the price was a lowered, it might rate more stars because of the white background, size and accuracy. Also no problems with shipping.

Again, these tapes are great. I've left my review for the 30 footer, but it's the same for these 16 footers. I've purchased many over the last few years since I discovered them. I prefer this name over the stanley tapes (yes I mean the fat max ones. WAY to big in my hands and not so comfortable to hold) They hold up nicely, and I'd probably would still have my first one if someone else didn't like it so much as well. Like my other review, I've purchased several, some were gifts, some have simply disappeared.
Again, great job to the people at Tajima.
