As well as having all the features you would expect from heavy duty contractor's tapes - wide deep curved blades, rubber grip cases, blade brakes, etc., these two tapes (5 metres and 8 metres long, both 25mm wide) are dual marked imperial and metric on both front and back of the blade. The main advantage of this feature is to allow the tape to be used for marking lines as well as measuring, the curvature on the blade giving sufficient stiffness to enable a reasonably accurate line to be drawn along the tape. The floating end clips are secured by three rivets and protrude from both sides of the tape.

UpdateAxminster got back to me and replaced the tape free of charge so good marks for customer service.

Utterly uselessI bought this “precision” tape for my workshop. Today I couldn’t work out why some of my measurements weren’t lining up.
