Who do you think of when you hear line lasers? Well, I am pretty sure most of you think Bosch and that is for a good reason. I know I sound like a broken record over the years always talking about how great Bosch line lasers are, but it's for a very good reason. They earned it by building one of the most durable, most accurate and one of the largest lines of line lasers. So when it comes to line lasers, it's hard to deviate from someone who has been a top performer all while keeping the prices reasonable. Last week we took a look at the Bosch GLL 100 G. If that is a little too pricey for you, the GLL 50 is a great alternative and about $80 cheaper.

Bosch GLL 50 Laser Line – Impressions
So from my experience with this and other Bosch lasers, I have no complaints. The laser is easy to use, the batteries last a long time, the price is right and it's built tough. What else could you want in a laser? For me, like the GLL 100, I do wish there was a hard case included. Not a deal-breaker, but it would be nice.
I have used Bosch over the years for so many projects and they always perform. From the framing of my attic to installing tile in my bathroom to installing can lights in my house and so many other projects. Time and time again, Bosch has proven to me that they work.
