I don't have experience with grip rite, but I just checked and I have an opportunity to buy 5lb boxes of 3" #9 square drive grip rites with prime guard plus for $10/box no tax, locally. Should I jump on this and buy as many as possible? (meaning the whole pallet, for use and resale)

Well err, there is also this with lowes and the good ol' 20 dollar code :
https://m.lowes.com/pd/25-lb-9-x-3-in-Countersinking-Head-Polymer-Coated-Star-Drive-Deck-Screws/3352948

25-lb #9 x 3-in Countersinking-Head Polymer-Coated Star-Drive Deck Screws
Item # 223827 Model # LP3STBK
$98.84

So if I'm right you'd get the screws for 16$ per 5 lbs plus your filler item(s). That is if you want that many. Either way you get dinged with tax but still shipped to you.

Side note, Grip-rite to me, is an awesome faster for the money.

This may be a good deal for screws... but please, for the love of god, buy TORX drive screws. Even if you have to pay 2X the price, it is worth it. Phillips screws are designed to slip out (check the patent if you dont believe me).
Save yourself the headache and heartache and just buy good screws.
I have been a carpenter for the last 15 years and I will only use TORX drive screws. Generally, 2.5" is as long as you need to go for 2x framing and most other applications. 1-5/8" for sheeting.

When I first saw the Torx screws, I thought it was total overkill for wood. I thought Torx was only useful for automotive uses. Then I tried a few in wood. Wow was I wrong! I just wish they weren't so expensive.

And then there are the cream of the crop imo. The Headlock screws from FastenMaster. I was trying to use regular lag bolts to mount a home made shelving system to the ceiling in my garage. Needless to say the lags weren't doing the job considering these things would be hanging above my cars. The Headlock screws drilled into the studs like butter. LOVE them. Only problem is insanely high price of over $1 a screw!

So true. I love those Headlok screws. Fantastic and much better priced than lag bolts where I bought them. I got like 50 for $23 whereas I was paying $2.50/lag bolt.

You need to shop on ebay then. I recently bought 50 3/8" x 8" lag screws for a project im doing soon for $20. Not super high grade steel but it'll work fine.

100% agree with your TORX recommendation.

Torx is good. Robertson is good. But if you buy lag screws off ebay, you're going to be snapping a lot of heads off those grade 2 bolts.

3-in Phillips head, I'll pass. These will strip out before you can sink them. Also, your elbows will suffer due to all the strain while attempting to sink them in the last inch.

Any other type of head, especially the star head, would be better.

Yeah, No Star bit drive, no care. I won't buy anything else. They are costly but the time and frustration you save is so very well worth the money. I don't know how Phillips-head screws ever got to be the standard... Planned obsolescence is all I can think of.

This. I just wish they'd standardize on a torx size. Some are 25 others 15. Drives me screwy having to swap out bits.
