#2 Square Bits

Sorry, asking this here because most folks say use square bit screws and impact for installing hardi backer.

My question is: What GOOD quality square bit do you use? One that came with screws has stripped some, partially because of my poor skills I am sure!

Suggestions? for better quality square bit?

Milwaukee or DeWalt are good and easy to find---they are sold in bulk if you are wrecking them ----

And look on the packaging, it should say impact ready right on the package.
I gave up on trying to use screws in tile board.
I tried predrilling with a masonry bit and counter sinking and some still would not set flush even with an impact driver.
I went back to nailing it instead.
