    Today I bought a Omnigrid 6" x 24" ruler, been looking at it tonight and I don't like it, I don't like the color on it and I think It's hard to read. What kind do most of you like?

    I have one of the older 6 x 24 omnigrid & love it, I'm not fond of the yellow ones.

    It takes time to get used to it, but once you get it, is a good ruler.

    The one I have is 4" x 18" and I'm looking to upgrade to a 24" one. Don't think I'd want the yellow either.

    I have a 6 1/2" X 24 clear/black markings by June Taylor and I really like it :D:D:D

    When you all talk about 6 X ? rulers, are they really 6" and not 6 1/2" I have wondered about that, I would'nt like not being able to cut out 6 1/2" strips, how do you manage this?

    Never thought about that, I saw that ruler today and didn't get it because it was 61/2", I always read that you need a 6x24. Guess I should have asked this question before I bought it and I also like one with black markings.

    A lot of my blocks are cut at 6 1/2" that is why I am so curious.

    I have the 6x24 yellow it is ok. Although I use my 12 x12 1/2 and 6 x 14 more than my 24". my 14" is green.
