Best Overall Laser Tape Measure
Bosch Blaze GLM50C
I’ve always had great experiences with Bosch tools, and the Bosch Blaze GLM50C is a solid example of their commitment to quality and usability. I used this exact model while remodeling the ceiling of a Brooklyn townhouse, and found its large LED digits, backlit display and straightforward controls invaluable when measuring around ceiling beams and awkward design elements. The 165-foot range limit should be more than enough to handle the majority of home DIY projects, and its compact size is convenient to stuff in your coat pocket or tool belt for easy access. This model also features Bluetooth technology, so you can quickly transfer measurements using Bosch’s project management app.
