How many strips to a case?

The description states"per case", but I don't see a count per case.
Asked by: Kitchenguru
This particular SKU has only 3 pcs. per pack. However, if you purchase the 1 inch wide tack strips they come 100 to a case.

Poplar 7/8 in. Wide x 4 ft. Long Carpet Tack Strip for Wood or Concrete Subfloors (3 per Pack) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from You'd better pick up some suitable nails, if you expect to attach this strip to concrete The strips come with attachment nails, but they will NOT! go into concrete. I tried many times, only to end up with a bent nail, in every case. I ended up using epoxy to glue the strips to the concrete, which makes a strong bond, but I'll probably have trouble ever removing them, should I ever need to.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nails do not If you do buy this product, make sure you get a bag of #10 x 5/8 galvanized concrete nails. The nails that come with this board are awful and do not sink into to the concrete. I had to take all the "concrete" nails out and replace them with #10 x 5/8 galvanized concrete nails.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality nails The tack portion of this product is fine but the nails are junk if you have aged concrete. If your slab is older, buy a bag of Roberts nails and pull the nails out of the strip. You can get better product from carpet stores but they usually only sell by the case.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from If using on concrete, you will need additional concrete nails Works fine as a tack strip but the nails aren't good for concrete. More than half bent and you will need to get real concrete nails to hold strip properly

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Got The Job Done I don't know that there is much difference between tack strips. This got the job done. The nails were longer so gave me a couple of problems going into the slab. Overall, I was pleased. The only problem areas I had were in doorways where I couldn't get the carpet to always grab like I needed, but that's probably more to do with my experience level doing this stuff. Everywhere I had places to tuck the carpet edge under was fine.
