I've settled in on Behr Premium clear stain. It holds up much better
than the other stuff I've tried over the past 25 years.
Home Cheepo sells it:
It's also available tinted if you'd rather darken the color of the decking.
I would not use Thompsons either. Last stuff of theirs I used on swim
club picnic tables and benches could not be sprayed because it clogged
sprayer and painted on looked like it was crystallizing.
