What is best deck stain for Upstate NY? older deck-stained before with solid color

I need a stain that will last over tough Upstate NY winters -deck gets full sun. 17 years old- been stained before with a solid color. Best-longest-lasting Deck Stain Recommendation?

Are you saying the deck boards are 17 years old? That's past the expected life span. What condition are they in?

You will be lucky to get two years out of any deck stain.
A solid stain will show wear marks and thin spots much faster then a Semi transparent.

Sikins, Cabot and Olympic are all good stains.
Brushing is the best way to apply it if you want it to last.
