I have the bostich. Grabbed it one day cause its the only one sold around here. It's kind of awkward and heavy. But it's the only one I've ever used so I don't know how that compares to others. And somehow I always end up with a ton of caps around and no staples.
I have a Stinger 3/8 cap stapler for syn. roof underlay. Works ok but sometimes you pull a string caps when they wont cut apart, don't know if its tool / caps or way hold it sometimes. Way more secure than staples only and faster than hand nailing underlay.
I trashed 2 of the Bostitch cap staplers, I was reluctant to try another gun by Bostich but they talked me into this one it keeps up bump nailing and is an all around great gun no complaints. Highly recommend it...
Been using the hitachi for 4 years. Regular amount of repair I would say. We run about 40 boxes of caps and nails a year through it. Ended up purchasing a second one recently as they have been discontinued and mine was in for repair.
I only buy the hitachi brand nails though. The knock offs have given me tons of problems and winter time is even worse for them. They are extremely expensive nails, and gun, but doing houses with all foam board exterior is well worth it to me. I figure it's 3x faster to gun them than handnail
