Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ald1 So easy to use my 4 year-old grandson can do it!
I'm a contractor with over 30 years experience. While building a deck for my daughter I decided to try this blind nailing system. Works as advertised. Fast and effecient with beautiful results! As the photos shows this product can be used by the "non-pros" too!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RM A Great Tool!
Had to replace all the boards on my deck. I saw the youtube video on the use of the Camo tool and was sold immediately! I have been using it for the last several days and have nothing but praise for this tool. It's so easy to use that my wife has been using it. The really nice thing about this tool is the precision with which the tool angles the screw into the side of the deck board and the screw hole is barely visible. With this tool you can throw away your hammer and nails!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JJandShanon Excellent tool and well worth the price!!!!
Our new deck looks great!
If you're building a new deck, don't hesitate and purchase the Marksman Pro along with the camo screws. Make sure you get enough screws to finish the job. Our deck was 16x24 and the boards went down with ease with this tool. Once the screws are set, you don't have to worry about them backing out.
Our deck looks great especially because you don't see any screw or nail heads and you don't have to worry about catching your bare foot on one in the summer etc. Our photo is not the best but we thought we'd try to show how it turned out.
Great item and we will definitely save it to use on any future projects.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DragonFly I laid a 220sqft deck in a couple of hours with this - looks good and was super easy to use.

The tool worked great. My only complaint is that it gave too wide a space between boards. Worked around it and deck looks great. Start the screw, remove tool, close gap as desired, tighten down.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Janice Fantastic product! Highly recommended!
This made deck installation extremely easy and it looks fantastic! I recommend buying two so you can put them at either end of the deck board to get the spacing right. You want to figure out where the board is bowing so you can drill in there first, then strategically place the camo so you can push the board straight and drill it in. It's much easier if you have at least two people, ideal if you have four (two people working on either end of the board, one person drills and the other pushes).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Garm2485 Bad engineering
As a 30 year contractor, this tool has many flaws. To begin with, the tabs which are suppose to give a even spacing every time, do not consider the bulge which protrudes out when a screw is inserted. So when you are working on the next board and butt it up to the previous board which has a bulge from the screw, it makes the spacing now 1/16 to 1/8 larger. the tabs should have an empty space to accommodate the previous screw bulge.
Also, add 2 to 3 times longer to lay the deck board. I used this tool to lay a composite deck and it was very slow work. The screws do not enter fast. Maybe 50% of the screws went in easy, the other 50% you had to wait 10-20 seconds before the screws chizeled out the pvc layer and finally grabbed. Very exhausting!
Do not waste your time on this inefficient tool.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by W2 Very good product but you should know this
This is a good product that my son & I used to install about 600 sq. ft. of redwood decking. There are 2 things to be aware of. If your deck is against a house wall, you can not use this for the first two rows because (like hardwood floor installation with nailer) the drill does not have enough room to maneuver on the wall side. So you need to used some L brackets. Not a super big deal. The second thing to be aware of is where two adjoining boards share the same joist. I would suggest that you don't share the joist and just add some scrap 2" x to this joist and start your next decking board on the spliced piece. The reason for this is the tolerance for putting 4 screws on the one joist is not great.
The screws are a small diameter. I hope they stand the test of time.
