Stanley 33-725 25-Feet FatMax Tape Measure Review

In almost any kind of construction related job, the most common used tool is the tape measurer. The Stanley 33-725 25-Feet FatMax 25 Tape Measure is one of the popular ones available today. It has an 11′ tape standout, a wider as well as thicker blade.  Something that requires two people to carry out, a single person can do it when making use of this tape.

The FaxMax tape measure includes some wonderful features that we have seen.  First as well as most likely one of the most effective features is the eleven-foot blade standout. The reason why this is one of the most important feature is that when you are working alone, you can quickly as well as easily carry measurements without anyone having to hold or perhaps place the “dumb” end of the tape. The whole length of the blade is covered with a Mylar polyester film which assists the blade as well as is meant to make it last longer

The very first 3 feet of the blade is covered with what Stanley refers to as BladeArmor. Basically, this is an aggressive thermoplastic layer which is applied to the blade and is meant to strengthen this section of the blade and also help in reducing breakage. The blade lock is a basic push thumb switch which is a bit tight whenever the tape is new; however, after a few use, it will become much easier to operate.

One of the things that will quickly get to the mind of the people who are unfamiliar with the Stanley FatMax tape is that they are usually big in size! Because the blade is a complete 1-1/4” wide, it helps make the entire body of the tape measure larger. For those who have small hands, it may take a while to get used to the tape. But as soon as you get familiar with the size, you may never make use of your old tape again.

The Verdict:

Overall, the Stanley 33-725 25 Foot FatMax Tape Measure is a success. Even though it is not perfect, it has the most important features that a good tape measure must have. Users love the tape as well as the tightness of the blade. The easy blade lock as well as easy-to-read measurements are great. For the overall performance rating, we gave this tape a 9/10 because it is pretty and it is a durable measuring tape. For our worth rating, we will rate this tape 8/10 because while it is amazing, it comes with a price which is higher than a lot of other competitors.

As at writing this review, it has a 4.4 out of 5-star rating on Amazon US and can be purchased for a price of $15.32.
