      It seems silly to write a review for screws but these are actually a bad product. The problem is the design of the screw tip itself - there are no threads at the tip of the screw to 1/8 inch up for the screw to grab into the material. This means that you either have to force the screw in 1/8 inch to get it to grab or just sit there drilling endlessly in hopes it grabs, somehow. The only other option is to drill a pilot hole, which is completely counter-intuitive as these screws are self-tapping. Also, the very sharp point combined with the way the self-tapping is done (basically there is a groove cut into the screw) means that even the slightest eccentricy in your will will be greatly magnified, making it even harder to use these. I was fortunate to have a suitable star-drive bit, but a bit is not included with these, so make sure you have one before you get started - square drive or any other bit will not work. These seem like minor problems, but this type is the majority of deck screws sold in my local store. They are so frustrating to use that any project needing more than one or two screws will be slowed down significantly by using these.

      Cons Difficult to Install, poor design
