Camping in the rocky "soil" of the Southwest, these are my stakes of choice. Lightweight, extremely durable and easy to use, I have replaced all of my other stakes as well as my sons' stakes with the Groundhogs (four plus tents' worth). They provide solid anchors, dig in virtually anywhere and are worth the investment.
These are a great product to be sure that you're always prepared for missing that one last steak. Upgrading the supplied tent stakes to these then allowed me to use the original ones as back up. Strong enough for Ohio clay, but light enough not to throw my back out carrying around.
Groundhogs are almost everything you want in a stake. They hold well, they're extremely tough, they are easy to see, and they are relatively light weight. There are lighter options out there, but to me it's not worth loosing strength and holding power to save a few grams.This pack is nice as it saves you a few bucks.
I love these! I really didn't want to send the money on these, I hated the one that came with my tent the were really heavy and didn't work very well. I love how easy these go in to the ground! works great in sand and rocky ground.
Take the stakes that came with your tent and put them to the side. This will do everything you need them to do plus the are super light. So when my husband complains about weight I always tell him he can carry the original stakes since he is a ounce weeny.
I usually use these to stake out my tarp while hammock camping. I got these stakes after a friend recommended them. I was sick of pressing normal aluminium stakes in the ground just to have them bend in half when sneaky rocks decide to thwart my attempt to setup shelter. Most of my regular camping areas are pretty rocky. I've hit rocks many times with these stakes, but I have yet to even slightly deform even one of them. As a bonus, the cord loops on them are super reflective making it very easy to find them when you drop one during a midnight setup.
