Tape measure or digital tape measure?

Can anyone advise which is better, a manual or digital tape measure and which models do you recommend?

In my opinion get a digit-it’s worth the investment.
I got a Bosch company compact digital one for about $40, and I used it a little during the course; but now after the course I use it literally for every job, it saves so much time-it’s worth every last penny!!

A laser is by far better and easier. Bosch is a great option. However, I would recommend also having a regular tape measure to measure small space.

I agree on having a regular tape measure as well, but if you have a digital then you only need a 12’ manual.

Thanks so much everyone for your replies.
