Staining my fence, stain selection
So after having my fence installed last year, decided its time to get some stain on it this year.

I have a Lowe's gift card I am going to use to get the stain so I am keeping my selection to what lowe's offers. I went there this evening and unfortunately they do not stock sampler sizes. So I am hoping can someone give me some recommendations, I am strongly leaning towards a translucent stain unless someone can give me a compelling reason to go with semi-transparent.

My fence is Red Pine and Lowes has Cabot and Olympic brands.

If anyone has pictures of translucent stained red pine that would be even better to give me a visual idea

This won't help w/ color selection, but I think Consumer Reports recently rated stains for durability.
