I saw this on Facebook and thought it would be a cool Christmas gift for our son in law. After I received it I think I'll have to buy him another one. This is a well built 25' tape measure that is easy to read and the built in pencil is a fantastic idea.

It is super handy and easy to use for projects. Particularly woodworking and drywall work. It's super easy to drag a straight line down a large sheet of material to make a long cut. Or pre-set the tape measure with a measurement and make your mark in hard to reach places.

Another stocking stuffer for my hubby for the win! My hubby is so used to stealing pencils from inside I had to remind him of the built in graphite marker a couple of times. But now he's so used to it when he grabs a different tape measure he's peeved he's gotta revert an old fashioned pencil!

I purchased this for my dad as a gift. He is a pretty avid carpenter, so he is big on measuring twice, cutting once. After few days, he got hooked on using the marking feature, and he loves it. He used it building a 20'x30' garage and said it was super helpful. Great gift!

Why quickdraw?


Patented RollMark Technology

The marking system works like this: There is a stick of graphite directly above the small steel wheel. As the wheel rolls, it transfers the graphite to the surface being marked. The result is a pencil line, without the pencil, and it never needs to be sharpened, and it can't break.     


TruView WEDGE Indicator

It looks like a wedge shape from the front, but as you look from above, it becomes a single line. It acts as a gun site, eliminating the parallax effect and letting you make an extremely accurate mark.

Rugged Construction

The rugged co-molded case is secured by industrial STAR-drive screws. Our tape hook is secured with three rivets and a steel backing plate.  FYI: You can extend the stand-out of the blade up to 12 feet with your free hand.


RadiusPRO Tip

Yes, the QUICKDRAW PRO tape measure excels at making accurate linear lines, but, it can also make a perfect radius or circle, instantly. To make a circle, lock the blade, and hold the edge of the hook at the point that will be the center of your circle. Now rotate the tape measure around that point. Easy!


Heavy-duty Brake-Lock

The rubber on rubber blade lock allows you to make accurate marks, lines and any size radius you need. We started by adding a comfortable rubberized thumb slide, then added co-molded internal rubber grips which capture the blade both top and bottom! The result: extreme accuracy with every mark, line and radius you make.


QuickDraw Marking Keychain

Each QUICKDRAW PRO tape measure comes with a QuickDraw key-chain that comes with 10 refill graphite sticks (2000+ marks per stick).  FYI: Our key-chain utilizes the same marking technology as the Quickdraw Tape, and is clear, so you can see how it all works.

Conquer Dark Surfaces

Conquer Dark Surfaces

Game changer for metal workers - 

Normally, black graphite comes standard in all QUICKDRAW marking tape measures, but now WHITE graphite (actually .9mm white ceramic) is available.

For everyone that works with metal, or any dark, hard to mark, materials that black graphite doesn't mark, you will love this option. The bright white mark is easy to see, and you'll get approximately 1000+ 1/4" marks. Reloads are fast and easy. No tools required, just follow the simple video on our website, and it will take less then 10 seconds. Oh, and the white graphite works in all QUICKDRAW models including the 16' and 25' QUICKDRAW Pro.
