I use to use an impact driver aswell doesn't matter what bit you use mate the f**k**s are to powerful I used the makita gold torsion magnetic bit holder it holds the screw in place i only bought it as was sick off splinters off the screws but this reduced banging the screws through the paper as it has a sleeve over the drill bit so there's abit of a guide on how far to screw them up before you go overkill and put through the paper

Might be something with new brushless being too efficient
I overboarded a lime rendered lat and plaster ceiling last week it was a b*****d to get the screws through could have done with extra b*ll***s on impact driver

Just get one of those cheap drywall bits with the plastic end that prevents screw pulling in to far, about a quid.

Used to have a little 10.8v Bosch impact driver which was great for boarding. Nice and light and very controllable.

Mate has a dewalt which I do find is a bit aggressive unless you’re more careful.

I use dewalt one, they are nippy but if you careful then it's a dream tool. Can't imagine not using impact for boarding.

Yes mate they take any bit,its like the drywall dimpler tony just posted when you put the magnetic sleeve on,you can still pierce the paper with it if your not careful but i found it quite useful as a rough guide when to ease up on the power

I tried one of these designed for drywall and found it naff. Reviews are good and I treated myself at £13

I don't use the black screws because of the splinters I use the zinc plated silver ones
