Which Spirit Level Would You Recommend?


G'day,

I am looking at purchasing a 1-1.5 metre spirit level but I don't know which one to buy. I suppose it's pretty true you generally get what you pay, for so I don't want an el-cheapo but nothing overly expensive. Thus which one would you say is the best value in that category?.

I have been told by a couple of tradespeople to buy one of the following either a empire, stanley or stabila.

Thanking all those in advance who reply.

Cheers
Planet

I've got Stabila and love em. They are pricey but for a professional the warranty outwieghs the cost. For a homeowner any one will do just be carefull and don't drop or knock it around.
