I think if I could have the fastcap mm tape, installed in the Komelon tape body, it would be getting in the right direction.  I love the markings on the fastcap, but everything else about it is bad.

I've been using Fisco big T dual scale tapes for a few years now.
Decent belt clip that stays on the belt and then the tape clicks on and off the belt clip.
The body of the tape is 100mm as well and it has little pointers so you can just add 100 mm to an internal measurement for pretty decent accuracy.

Who came up with this logo? It's a red arrow pointing down? Was this person not very optimist on britain's manufacturing future?  Did focus groups not like a blue arrow pointing up?  [unsure]

kitchen company started it in 2011 and new logo rebrand in 2014. arrow's supposed to point at the product. they let everyone download and use it, so i'm sure you can rotate any way you want
