These tapes are as good or better than Stanley FAT MAX. Black & Decker owns DeWalt & Stanley. These tapes come out of the same factory as the Stanley Fat Max. I have used both and would buy both. No difference really. So, dude below can say what he wants, but they are basically the same tape.
Love this tape. Wide, easy to read from a distance or from above your head. Side hook makes measuring quicker and easier. The only difficulty I've found is when scoring drywall using your tape can be tricky with the large end hook. You cannot go wrong with Dewalt.
Pros: Easy to read, large standout, tough, side hook
This is an awesome tape to use, it has great standout an extra large hook to grab onto items but for the amount of money that you pay for this tape you should be able to find a replacement blade for it or be able to return it to the store where you purchased it for another one when it fails.
Pros: Easy to read , Extra large hook at end of tape
lock is very weak, spring will rewind tape even when fully locked. tried other Dewalt tapes at a local store, they all have the same promblem. All of Stanley tapes worked great. will be returning this tape.
Tape worked great during a bathroom remodle, took plenty of drops without failing, We checked the standout ourselves and it was just under 12' not the 13' that was advertised. The green tape made it easier to read. Would definately reccoment this.
Pros: Easy to read tape, Decent Standout, Rugged Case
