Silverline MT47 Open Reel Surveyors Tape 100m by Silverline Tools
Rather disappointed with this product. The build is very flimsy and the tape jammed during the first use. Eventually, I totally unwound it and took the central cover off only to find that the tape had been incorrectly set up in the first place! This is a shame as the product is very good value. I have two earlier versions of this tape (100m) and have never had this problem. Perhaps standards are slipping to save money! I guess it is case of 'what you pay for'. If you are a professional surveyor you already know the 'best' tapes....... if you are not - then it is worth looking around and read all the submitted reviews.

Important: check the UK government website regarding the legality of carrying this knife in public as both blades do lock in position.
Olympus 8 x 40 DPSI Binocular by Olympus

These are a great investment and represent good value for money. You won't be disappointed so long as… Read more
