I used the B&D PowerShot. It claims to reducing bounceback, which I think it does. It's comfortable too. I used 9/16 staples everywhere, even on the few places that I used them between stations. On those places, I wish I had used shorter staples--only because I stapled into the tip of my finger once. Talk about pain. I bled all over my nice wood.
