(If this discussion has already be around, please just point me in the right direction.)

What are people's thought on the different "vertical hook" options (I do know about cam hooks, but I'm curious about the other hooks and hook shaped pins). What I'm curious about is the viabiliy of hand placing some of these for clean aid placements. Some seem to be designed just for that (not to be hammered). Others seem like you'd better give them a few hits if they are going to do anything for you.

Here are the ones I've noticed: Ibis, Toucan, Mallard, Bird Beak & Pecker.
