Rated 5 out of 5Â by inchworm outdoor screw
A real bargain for such a comprehensive set of stainless fixings.
Not meaning to patronise but there would appear to be a number of reviewers who seem unfamiliar with the characteristics of stainless steel. The trade-off for corrosion resistance (due to added chromium and nickel, amongst others) is a reduction in tensile strength, hence you will need to pre-drill and countersink or they will tend to break.
The benefit to this one-off extra effort is to have fixings that won't rot in outdoor situations and can be removed if necessary at a later date.
Usually you have to pay a lot more for this hike in material quality so this set really is excellent value.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great Screws at a great price
I've used these Turbo Ultra screws previously when building an extension roof and they're great. Good thread and easy driving but most of all, non rusting so you don't get brown stains down your walls or on your fascias.
We've recently moved to a coastal site so the atmosphere is fairly agressive. I wouldn't use anything other than stainless outdoors and these screws are great value at the moment too.
Only reason I dropped a star on reliability is the heads are a little softer than the standard pasivated screws so if your driver bit is a little worn, it's much easier to chew up the heads on these.

A high quality and great assortment of stainless steel "Turbo Ultra" wood screws. Brilliant to use and a snip of a price at the moment. Only let down was the lack of screws longer than 70mm.

I have always wondered why Screwfix never sold the 3.0mm Turbo Ultra screws separately.
I use these stainless screws on caravans to replace the ordinary screws which eventually rust over time.
So the only way to get 3.0mm is to buy these packs.
I have no problem with the fact that these screws are softer than most other screws, as they are going into holes vacated by the old caravan screws. I use the larger screws for various other tasks, and find that driving in a Turbo Gold first, (almost all the way) as a pilot means that these Ultras don't break.
This pack covers a very wide range from 3.0x12 to 5.0x70. All are useful sizes.
