The Crescent Lufkin Control Series is right at home in the hands of professionals who want a tape measure that works as hard as they do. The 1-3/16” wide tape with extra-large print has 15 feet of reach to tackle any job, and the matte finish both reduces glare and protects the blade, ensuring that it holds up through heavy use. The finger brake beneath the tape’s feed allows the user to control the blade without risk of pinching, and the blade can be locked in place with the wide lock button protected by over-mold rails. Of course, the best-in-class durability of the Control Series does not stop at the lock button rails – the ergonomic case survived 50+ 1-story drops in real life strength testing. The Control Series excels, from the integrated tether point to the 360 degree grip end hook.
