There was a good article on it in Popular Mechanics recently. It is hugely stronger in shear and pull-out than a conventional nail. Builders aren't going to like them because they are so hard to pull out. I’d insist on them if I lived in tornado or hurricane country. As I recall they were only 10/15% higher than a #2 common. A small price to pay for the added piece of mind.
