Last month, I read this article in Popular Science and I got really jealous of everyone who is building a deck this year. You see, I built a deck last year, when the Outlaw didn't exist. Now these screws are about to start shipping, and as someone who spent a good part of 48 hours cussing deck screws last Spring, I would highly recommend the investment.
$28.95 for a five pound box of deck screws may sound expensive, but that's actually right in line with the "premium" screws I used last year. The star drive screws were certainly better than a Phillips head, but these new Outlaw bits make star drive screws look like neolithic stone tools.
I don't get anything if you order these bits. I just consider it my duty to save others from filling the Spring air with four letter words.
