Forge Steel Tape Measure 8m x 25mm is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I needed a long tape measure and thought this would be just about ok. It turns out it's a lot more than just ok!! It's robust and has been brilliant. At this price you just have to buy it! Highly recommended.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor product, poor durability The tape measurer auto lock function is poor and got worse after few months of mild use. It eventually failed to retract as stop mechanism got blocked. Screw fix was happy to refund as the item was less than a year old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No nonsense tape A great basic piece of kit. Clear printed measurements and feels robust

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid tape, good price Good solid tape. I bought it to replace a MacAlister tape from B & Q - appears almost identical apart from the colours. My only gripes about this tape are: 1 I nicked the old one with a Stanley knife when cutting plasterboard, and within a week or two the tape broke completely. OK, I know I damaged it, but I didn't expect it to fail so quickly. 2. It's almost impossible to hook the end of the tape over a piece of wood without manually pulling the tape out of the reel first- the rubber housing completely shrouds the hook at the end of the tape. Apart from that, if you are careful with it, I reckon it should last a few years.
