Timbadeck Countersunk Stainless Steel Decking Screws 4.5 x 65mm Pack of 100
For the price i was not expecting much , but to my surprise they performed brilliantly, i used to fix rails to fence post, i used a small pilot hole in the rail and they went into the post effortlessly

They go in well, but the heads strip easily and they bend so you need to push very hard on them to stop them stripping, which bends them unless you are absolutely dead straight.

Functional over exceptional
Got these as my (cheaper) online supplier couldn't get them out in time. Typically the local branches appear to hold 1 maybe 2 boxes each (very useful) so had to click and collect on 24hr. A bit pointless to hold such a small stock but hey ho....
The screws themselves went in fine with an impact driver, wouldn't want to do it with a standard drill driver or with longer screws (such as the review for the 85mm version). No twist outs, no snapped screws and no rounded heads. Did pilot the ends of the boards as a precaution.
Would have opted for the Fischer torx head stainless screws, but only in packs of 250 and needed 300 so not worth it.
