Which CAMO Marksman Install Tool Should I Buy?
Considering the CAMO hidden fastening system? If you’ve been following our blog, you already know that we think it’s a great system, but what you might not know is which tool you should buy: the Marksman, Marksman Pro, or the Marksman Pro NB.
The short version is that it all comes down to deck board width and product durability:
- CAMO Marksman – Works with 6” (nominal) deck boards. This tool is a lightweight, non-professional grade that only has one screw guide. You’ll have to continuously rotate the tool during the install process. We don’t recommend this one.
- CAMO Marksman Pro – Works with 6” (nominal) deck boards. This tool is a durable, contractor grade that has dual screw guides which makes for faster installation. Strongly recommended.
- CAMO Marksman Pro NB – Adjustable – works with 3 ¼” to 5” (nominal) deck boards. Like the Pro, this narrow board tool is a durable, contractor grade and has dual screw guides to make for faster installation. Strongly recommended.
Knowing the difference will help you make sure you select the right tool for the job.
If you’re looking for more information, we put together a great page on our website that explains the differences among the CAMO Marksman tools, our recommendations, and how many CAMO deck fasteners you need. It’s a great place to get information before your deck project.
