Radiant staple gun?

For laying radiant (1/2" O2 barrier Pex) pipe on a plywood subfloor, what type of affixing system do you use? The company I work for uses Bostitch staples with a Bostitch staple gun (I think the SX150) with a modified safety guide that straddles the pipe. It's fast to load, fast to install, and convenient. Are the Peter Mangone's good?

    staple gun

    While installing pex for my house I was using a Stapler and staples I purchased for a previous job, from American Radiant in Conn, had great luck with it till I ran out of staples,found the same looking staples ,plastic with two nails on each side, the stapler keep jamming with the Home Depot staples, so I bought a Home Depot stapler, broke it in about 20 minutes, I had concrete coming in the am , went back to HD returned the stapler,and bought two more, they both broke that nite,not a happy camper, with a lot of argravation got the pex down before the concrete truck showed up ,a 6am trip to another HD for 2 more staplers, bought the last 2 last nite at the first store .Next Day called American Radiant and ordered 10 more boxes of staples,there gun and staples work great together, good luck with your project.....Mike
