I have 190 foot of treated fencing that was put up last year. The lumber (5/4 yellow pine) is now fully dry and I'd like to make it look nice by either a dark stain or dark paint.

Any recommendations or first hand experience?

Stain.
What type of wood?

Some woods do better with water based some with oil.

The fencing is 5/4 yellow pine wood decking that you wold purchase from Lowes or Home Depot.

Penofin Stain. Been using it on my deck since 1994. I've only retreated it twice since. Probably due for another coat this summer. So it's good for at least eight years.
Google it for best retail location near you.

Been using Penofin for over 25 years. It's the best. See the redwood tables I built.

CWF oil stain worked great for me. I also put it on my pool deck with good results. Available in various colors.

DO NOT PAINT !

unless you love painting 190 feet of fence every one to two years.

I’m sure I have that much
Once a year I use a pump up sprayer or roller and Thompson water seal ... the better one which I believe is acrylic instead of oil. I get about 15-20 years out of a fence

The other problem with paint is you often end up having to scrape the remains off. With stain you (generally) just add to what's left.

This is the first time I've heard of Penofin. I need to rebuild a deck soon, which product in particular would work well for pressure treated wood?

Always heard pressure treated wood needs time to rest-set-dry-something before you stain it.

How much time nobody in my world seems to know.

Too bad they don't use pressure treatments which are already colored. They could offer dark brown (live with that) or light wood color (generic yellow or tan) which you could stain over.

Use a stain. For solid color stain I like Benjamin Moore Arborcoat. For clear I like Penofin.
