Love It...!!!
Even though I'm right handed, I use my tape with my left hand so I can mark with my right. With this tape being able to be read from either side or nice is that.

I've got a handful of tape measures laying around my house and shop. Once I bought this one though, all the others are dead to me. This is now the only one I use and I keep it near me whenever I'm working on a project. Its just a smarter tape measure from a design standpoint.

Really Cool, Feature-packed Tape Measure
This tape measure is full of cool features not found on most tape measures.

1. You can read it from both the right and left, making it great for left-handed people. 2. you can write on it. 3. it has a built-in pencil sharpener. 4. and most importantly, it is accurate!

Been wanting a tape measure with fractional inch measurements on it AND where i can see the numbers right side up regardless if the tape measure is on the left or right, and I saw this in the Family Handyman so I had to order it.

readable for both right and left hands
Alvin K on Jun 19, 2018
I'm right-handed. Tape measure in my left hand, hooked to the right side of any material, while marking with my right hand. It's a no-brainer. Why the heck have I endured upside-down numbers, for decades. This double-numbered tape, looks like a winner!
Matthew T on Apr 8, 2018
Easily to read and marl distances right or left. Don't cut as many pieces wrong.
James D on Apr 8, 2018
I like the convenience of having marks on every 1/16 of inch.
Nelson E on Mar 31, 2018
I had one and it was the best tape measure I have ever used. Unfortunately, I either misplaced or someone walked away with it at work.

Just trying for the first time
Jerry K on Feb 1, 2018
I saw Steve Ramsey using this and I like the extra labelling 1/8, 1/4 etc. Having a way to write measurements down is also cool. Now I need a way to attach the measure to my retractable lanyard.
Easy to read
