Editor's Review: Metal-connector nailer is a leap forward in technology
review date: May 1, 2007
Bostitch's new compact metal-connector nailer isn't a standard nail gun retrofitted to become a metal-connector nailer; it was designed from scratch just for this application. As a result, the StrapShot is about half the size and weight of the Paslode, and it fits more easily into nooks and crannies-even between 12-in. on-center framing. Instead of the probe found on older models, the StrapShot is designed so that the nail itself protrudes from the gun to guide placement. For repetitive jobs like installing a roof full of hurricane clips, the StrapShot is a giant leap forward.
