Pin top wood balusters tend to be more elegant than their square top counterparts. They create a more open and visually delicate system. However, don't be mislead to think that these are weak or inferior products. Because Pin Top balusters are actually inserted into the handrail as opposed to a plow with fillet, they are often stronger than the square top varieties. Additionally a Pin Top balustrade is typically less expensive because handrails do not require plows and fillet, the balusters themselves are typically less expensive, and most importanty they are very easy to install. If you are a Do-it-yourselfer then this will save you time and headaches, if you are having a professional install it, then it will save you money. Read more below.
