Our 1 ¼? wide tape measures have selective flattening. This means that we increase the curve where needed to achieve standout and decrease the curvature so the blade is flatter towards the hook end for easier marking and better hook grabbing. With both FatMax and Xtreme, the curve increase begins at approx. the 5 mark (blade is flatter 0-5?).
