Extended Reach. Available in 100-, 200-, and 300-foot versions, the Lufkin Pro Series Fiberglass Long Tape has three interchangeable end hooks: The standard hook can be closed for inside measurements; a rubber-coated hook provides extra grip; and a ring attachment slips over an 81/2-inch aluminum stake. All three — plus the aluminum stake — store on the tape housing. I found the 100-foot model (PSFE100) on the Web for $55. Lufkin, 919/387-0099. www.coopertools.com
