I'm looking for a QUALITY retractable tape measure that reads from right to left. I like to pull the tape with my left hand and mark with my right but I'm always having to read it up side down. Any suggestions?
I have that LeeValley tape in your first link, and find it very comparable to any you would find at the box stores, like Stanley. I use that Fast Cap for my woodworking (the LV is in the house for general use) and it by far my favorite. Now only that, Fast Cap is a really great company if you need customer service (not so much on the tape, but they make a lot of other stuff). Being able to read from both directions is the schizzle!
