Lufkin Control Series tapes boast unique Drag Strip feature
By Anthony Capkun
(UPDATED May 15, 2013) April 30, 2013 – Apex Tool Group says the new Lufkin Control Series tapes are now available for purchase… in the States (we’ve confirmed Canadian availability). The tapes provide greater control and accuracy for construction/trades and industrial, says Lufkin. (Watch VIDEO below) These tapes feature a Drag Strip feature on the bottom of the tape that allows you to regulate the feed and return of the tape by applying pressure directly to the blade with your index finger. The 10-ft stand out capability and co-moulded rubber grip provide comfort and durability, and the extra-wide end-hook holds onto corners well, making marking easier and more precise. The Control Series line is available in three sizes: 16-ft, 25-ft and 30-ft.
