M.Power’s R1 tape measure is designed for right-handed users and features a blade that reads from right to left. This allows a user to hold the tape measure with their left hand while placing marks with their right hand.
M.Power describes the R1 as a serious measuring tool, but from the looks of it, they’re not just tooting their own horn – the R1 does look to be carefully designed. The R1 features a high visibility and high impact plastic case, shock resistant rubber grip, ergonomic thumb lock, quick-touch blade brake, a stainless steel tip, and shock absorber to avoid tip slam damage.
The R1 is available with a combination 16ft/5.0m imperial and metric blade.
