Had high hopes that this was the one

3.0 out of 5.0 by Rich R. on June 9, 2018
The green on the tape really stands out, which helps seeing the markings at a glance.Blade is to thin for a tape in this price range. I've had mine for about 6 weeks now and already have a crease in it. The other problem with the blade, is it doesn't sit flat. See picture.I also thought I'd like the black case. I hate it. If I happen to set it down, it'll take me way too long to locate it again. It just blends in. See picture.I'll just keep looking for the perfect tape.
I always use Lufkin tape measures and the "Black Widow" is an Absolutely GREAT Tape Measure!!!

I have used tape measures nearly ever day for the last 40 years, and I have used Lufkin tape measures more than any other brand. My other “Go To” tape is a regular Stanley. The Lufkin Black Widow is (as far as I am concerned) one of the best tapes out there! All of those fat, bulky oversized tapes are not any better and they’re priced way too high! The BLACK WIDOW is very comfortable in the hand. It has a wide blade but not overly so, wide enough to provide a 10-Ft standout. The black matte blade and High-Visibility Green markings are really easy to see and read. And… unlike DeWalt and Milwaukee, Lufkin did NOT put printed Fractions on the bottom edge of the blade! Thank You Lufkin! Why do companies put printed fractions on the blade? If you need those on a tape measure then maybe you’re in the wrong line of work… Heavy duty 4-rivet blade tip, and the rubberized over-grip gives additional protection and it has a lanyard slot! Great tape measure! It has endured up very well. I hope Lufkin comes out with a smaller 16-Ft Black Widow version!
Nice concept, poor quality.

I really like the design and feel on my hand but with les than a month of mild use the numbers starter to flake, black paint doesn't seem to have a chance against some wood sap which for a framing carpenter is an every day situation, this situation happened on all locations where wood sap touches the tape, if they ever improve the paint coating I would definitely buy it.
Great looking tape measure

Several years ago I was given Stanley Fat Max. I'm not a contractor or someone who used it constantly. I used it sparingly and that's when I didn't lose it. My FatMax just broke. In replacing it I was drawn to this because of the color scheme of the tape itself. It really is easy to read. Its a quality tool, or at least feels like it. I have a tendency to misplace them for a period of time so I have a lot of them mostly the freebees from Harbor Freight. Three is a distinct difference in feel between this one and those. When doing something that requires precision, like hanging custom curtain rods, I like something I can trust. I feel like I can trust this one. I can see it. It hasn't broken.
Every brand of tape has pros and cons. Lufkin wins hands down.

The best tape measure ive ever bought even after a few pet-peeve cons. Love the black high-visibility tape. Ive dropped it a few times on concrete with no problems. Good standout. I have accidently extended these beyond the 25' mark to the point were i could see the tape attached to its retraction mechanism, AND THEY STILL WORK. People in the construction trade know this is rare. Most tapes fail to retract if you extend to far.Cons: the tape retracts freakishly fast and I fear could easily slice a finger while slowing it down if you're not careful. For as big as the hook end is, it truly sucks at grabbing on metal surfaces over long extensions (i work with aluminum product). However, having to take readings dozens to almost a hundred times a day, I have found the black tape with neon green/yellow writing to be faster for me to read and comprehend small fractions than the conventional yellow taoe with black writing. Last con: lack of different sizes.Update: there are now different sizes. The tape measure stopped retracting properly after 6 months of heavy use. Because of this, i decided to buy a fat max tape. Huge mistake. It got wet, was laid out to dry, and the yellow tape with marking peeled off within a week of purchase. This does not happen with lufkin. I have gotten it wet numerous times and the tape simply only shows slight rust stains on the edges of the tape. Nothing peels on a lufkin.
ALMOST PERFECT, ONLY ONE MAJOR FLAW

1.0 out of 5.0 by Carnagie Thornhill on July 14, 2019
Over all my years in construction I've used countless numbers of tape measures. This almost went to the top of the list except for one major flaw. It left out the number one on the one inch reading. Seems a simple thing but it's really a big thing. I find it very hard to discern where the actual number one is. Although they have the lines there, they are not easy to figure out just where the one inch really it. The rest of the tape is great though. Sturdy, Numbers on both sides of the tape and comfortable to carry. I carry mine on a magnetized holder. Too bad about that number one.
I like it - but somehow kinked already!?

4.0 out of 5.0 by John K. on March 22, 2019
I like the look of the bright numbers/letters on the black tape. The belt clip is super strong and never bends out of place. It's rubbery and feels like it would survive a large fall. I like how the end-clip has a top & bottom. It functions well but I find myself really babying it. I don't even know how it happened, but the tape already has a kink at the 12" mark. Knocking off a star for this because I honestly do not know how this happened since I have been so careful to take good care of it. My only guess is that it happened on recoil, so if that's true, it's unavoidable. The unit is self-coiling so there is no way to control the windup speed without running your fingers over the tape itself. The button is lever-type that just holds the tape in place... there is no throttle; either it's holding the tape or it's fully released and sucking tape back.
When your hard of seeing...

I’ve ALWAYS been a big Johnson (they stopped making those) or a fat max guy. I’ve aleays made it a point for every guy on my crew to carry the same brand and model tape when calling out measurements... this tape makes seeing the tic marks so much easier.I purchased tapes for my entire crew and they didn’t complain. But they did say I was getting old. As long as I can still perfect my craft every day and be certain to see the tics, I don’t care what others think! It doesn’t have the strength of the fat max for stand out and the blade starts to weaken close to the hook if you let it reel back too fast & too often, but it’s held it’s own for a several months so far. I’ll continue to purchase this tape until Stanley makes one like it stronger!
