Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Customer Expensive but effective
These screws and the tool you have to use with it is surprisingly a great team. The screws are small and show very little if at all. The angle they go in keep the board firmly attached. The screws are flat at the end so they drill in the wood and don't spread and split the wood like a regular screw does. Only two issues are the handle is a bit weak They should have supported it better. and the price for this simple but effective tool is too expensive -$40. Someone had a great idea and put it into production. We need more of that. Oh, on a side note this method takes probably twice as long as screwing but the results in my opinion are long term and worth it. I got this model tool because it has only a 1/8" spacer, which is the way to go for PT wood.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by StephenM Good system, but with some flaws
I guess rating the screws alone is kind of silly. The system is pretty good, but I see 3 areas where it's deficient.
The tip of the screw looks like a flathead screwdriver. It is very difficult to get the screw to start, or "tap" into the decking. Once it finally starts, it drives down OK, but why it doesn't come to a point on the tip like any other deck screw is beyond me.
You cannot get close to a wall, so you can't even get 1 side screwed down. It would be great if somehow the screw could be installed at least on one side of the deck board against a wall. This would probably require a different tool- perhaps a "half-tool" for these situations.
Butt joints over a single 2x joist are difficult to get 4 screws into. Again, it would probably require a separate tool, but one that allowed 4 screws at once, slightly angled in towards the center of a 2x would work.
It would be awesome if 1 tool could do both.
Finally, I have used this on regular 2x lumber and also composite decking. I prefer it to grooved decking and the necessary hidden fasteners. But make sure you use the correct screw length for your particular application.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leep tougher than i thought
I have read that these screws break easily.....that is just not true. I have yet to destroy any of these even when I have to take them out and do them over again. They look like they would be very flimsy, but they are far from it. I would recommend these things to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ric Best Purchase Ever!!!
Made my job easier. I put down over 150 of deck board on three sides of my log cabins second floor and an addition 24 feet of deck on the third floor. These screws combined with the camo pro x1 made the job fast and easy. Very professional looking for the DIYer.
Highly recommend these products.

I installed over 1000 sq ft of decking using the camo deck screws and used the camo marksman pro tool. After been installed for less than one month the screws started snapping in half. Now most of my decking is loose and needs to be removed and a proper fastener system used. I have tried to contact the company that makes them but they will not return phone calls or emails. Don't waste your money like I did.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheGeneral These screws hold on tight!
Using the longer screws for all ends (and vertical screws). These fellas hold on tight and draw the board down well. Can be a little tricky to back out - Just step on the board while unscrewing. If you miss the board below, don't bother trying to remove the screw - It won't back out. Just drive another one nearby.
