I'm looking for a quality 100' Tape that is compact so it will fit into my pouches. I had a Lufkin for years but its starting to bind when reeling it in and the tape is degrading.

I like the DeWalt one, but its too bulky to fit into my pouches.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
- Boda

Don't have a suggestion but I need to ask what do you do that would require a 100' tape in your pouches?
When framing bigger buildings (ie townhomes, or mansions)

There is a lot of squaring up, and long measurements.


I like the Lufkin 100 footer. I just put a few drops of gun oil in it once and a while.

Keson's stuff (link to Amazon) is pretty nice. I have one of their long tapes and a measuring wheel. Awesome customer service also in the event anything breaks.

When I received my measuring wheel ($115 wheel), one of the locking clips for the handle was broken. Not sure if it happened during shipping or what, but they sent a new wheel and said to keep the other one.

Also, there are many commonly accepted names for what we wear at work. Tool Bags, Nail Bags, Tool Belt, Belt, Pouches, ect.

It all means the same thing and the minute you read it you knew what I was talking about, so give me a break. Either you guys are really that bored or you just enjoy complaining LOL.
