I build a lot of decks and the Robertson is clearly the best screw available. It doesn't strip as often, the bits last longer, and you hardly ever drive a screwdriver through the back of your hand.
Anybody who is using Phillips clearly has too much time on their hands.
I think we should get Bob promoting this clearly superior product. We should get him calling it by its proper name too..."square recessed" is a description, not a name...they are called Robertsons or, to those of us who use them every day, Robbies.
I was just surfing these areas and saw these messages.Sorry to let you know that even in the US a few of us know what robertson screws are. Maybe we don't call them by a knickname but......Mark Hammond
