Button cap nails. Slap stapling can tear the felt. It also is less resistant to winds. We never slap staple unless we are shingling it the same day. We rarely use felt anymore. Most of the time we use synthetics which hold up much better and are almost impossible to tear.

Roofing nails through plastic caps. Just enough to hold it down till you bring up the shingles. Furring strips at rakes if windy.
