“improved” version is worthless
“Improved” version absolutely sucks. It’s horrible, does not pull the two pieces of wood together. The screw just keeps spinning. Bring back the old version, which was perfect!!! If you want to pre-drill every hole, buy it, otherwise look at other brands. I am so disappointed as I bought a lot of them and I used to rave about this screw using it for everything outdoors and indoors. Picture shows “improved” version on left, with different thread pattern that does not create a tight connection anymore.

do not use
Built a 20 by 50 ft addition to my deck 1.5 years ago look what happened to the screws. The tan screw is what they are supposed to look like, the green screws is what I used , everyone snapped , every single screw is broken at the exactly same spot. I have to redo the deck
