The 100 ft. Fiberglass long tape has a 3/4 in. blade with double-sided print making it easy to read and record measurements. The blade contains 64 fiberglass strands to increase durability and help prevent stretching and inaccurate measurements over time. The 3:1 gear mechanism offers improved ergonomics and makes it quick and easy to rewind the tape after use. A new wide ring at the end of the blade is designed to catch onto grade stakes, and the housing has a built-in clip for the ring for easy storage and transportation.
