Totally surprised with this heavy tape i received. Was expecting a cheap Chinese built by Stanley given that this is a plastic body. I used to have the Stanley classic silver ones long back. Anything not metal seemed cheap. BUt this one is a lovely surprise. Well built, well shaped. It has a finger groove to smooth slide the tape and the tab to lock it too if required. And its "made in India". Neat. Must buy for anyone like me who is fed up of using tapes abandoned in my home by various people come n gone. Finally I got my own.
