"Superb except..."Review: Well after watching a few youtube reviews and seeing many woodworkers using this tape I had to check it out. Good price and great features were a superb selling point. Overall everything was great except 1 tinny little thing that unfortunately made me return. Such a shame otherwise it is a SUPERB TAPE MEASURE. The new versions apparently have a Nylon Coating that extends the life of the blade and that is a great idea. The only gripe I have is that because of the coating it changes the color of the blade from White to LAVENDER/PURPLE. I have seen other tapes on market also use a coating but theirs is clear. Such a shame but looking at a lavender/purple tape measure all day is bothersome to my eyes. I also have the Yellow version (mm and inches) and that one must be the older model because blade is pure WHITE and a pleasure to use. Such a shame. <br> <br> <strong>Response: </strong>Thanks so much for the feedback. I'll pass this along!
"PMS-16 (Lever action belt clip)"Review: Excellent tape. I don't like the lever action belt clip. Changed mine out to one that just slips onto the SpeedClip
"happy camper"Review: lefty righty works as expected if not better. have had broken brake on the older 25' and had to fine tune the 16' to prevent the return function from jamming
"The 25' metric/standard is one of my favorite tapes"Review: I have been using a metric/standard tape for quite some time now and my only real complaint is that I've had it so long some of the molded rubber has cracked off. I used sugru to patch it which works and sticks very well. I had a flat back some years ago but found the spring too strong and never really got into using it...but this one is a real go-to for me. It's resistance to crimping has been good in my daily use for at least 3 years. The tape feels about as smooth as when it was new. I have never used the pencil sharpener and nearly never use the scratch pad - but I really like the belt clip and the stand out. There are some FastCap products that I love and some that I'm not so crazy about...this is one that I really love.<br> <br> <strong>Response: </strong> Glad you love it, Dan!

"Awesome, but could be better"Review: I have the standard reverse, and a story pole. Both are great for measuring. They are super accurate, easy to use. The large clip make it super easy to grab the end of a board. And the unsupported reach is amazing. I have 2 minor issues with them 1. you can't use it for inside measurement. The back edge of the tape is rounded, so you can't put it into a corner and add the width of the body. That makes it hard to use sometimes. 2. the pencil sharpener won't work with the fat boy pencil that fastcap makes. DUH!!! <br> <br> <strong>Response:</strong>Thanks. FYI: the FatBoy Pencil works perfect with the pencil sharpener. You just need to extend the lead out so it fits in there.
"Learning curve"Review: I have the standard reverse tape measure. I had to teach myself NOT to look at the numbers upside down, like you do with a reg. tape measure. made a mistake with the 6-9 numbers. I am now use to it and love it.
