Stanley Blade Armour Powerlock Tape Measure 8m x 25mm/26' is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good strong tape Durable, strong, holds straight over about 2.5m under its own strength, a tad on the heavy side but durability makes up for it

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks good, but doesn't last. I have time & again bought this tape to replace the same, as the company I worked for would pay for them. When they fail & it doesn't take long. (used daily at full stretch not overstretching) it will go crunch and that is the end of it, you will have to manually reel it back in, and when you measure again it will not retract. Try as you might you won't get it going again, unless you're brave enough to open it up (I don't recommend you do). Nice blade, smooth action, good feel in the hand, looks good, you'll look the part with it, but you'll be replacing it within months, if you don't mind that, buy one, otherwise look for something more reliable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Tape Measure This is an excellent product, reliable and durable. The locking mechanism is excellent and the blade armour feature is a great addition, giving the first 100mm added protection from wear and tear.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't Measure Up Hardly used, but the sprung steel inside that connects to the tape end broke with little pressure the first time the tape was accidentally fully extended. As it was a gift I don't have the receipt, but will not buy another one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty tough Survived a fall from a first floor window onto concrete.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nearly what it says on the tin This is a good strong blade which will stand out to more than the 2.4m claimed. The blade lock is not as positive as the claim and it needs pressure to make it grip, or at least mine does. The main advantage has to be the stand out which is very useful for one man measuring in awkward positions. A good buy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from try again Blade cracked on one of the rivets after 4hrs use. Took it back for an exchange so hope new one lasts longer!
