Bullet Pro Fixing wood screws - short review

In a word - Avoid.

Oh, alright. They give you a free impact bit. Just don't try and use these useless screws with an impact driver as they will shear off at the drop of a hat. Absolute rubbish.

To be honest I've never heard of them. I use to use Wurth Ecofast and Wupofast but they are a shite company now and their prices have gone stupid so I just use Spax which are decent screws, easy to buy from anywhere and I rarely have any snap..........

Well I'm not sure if these are generally available in the UK , but for the last couple of years I've been using these - and now they have expanded the range to include stainless steel.

IMHO they are pretty damn good and for nominal sizes under 2" pretty cheap, their 3 and 4" are great for serious big joinery but are not cheap.
