English term or phrase: Reel tapes
Definición en inglés: "Reel tapes are used for measuring longer lengths. Their length makes them ideal for measuring off areas such as foundations. Reel tapes are "reeled" in with a wind-up crank." Espero que esto ayude para encontrar la equivalencia en español. Gracias.
