    These are definitely HEAVY DUTY stakes. I was camping in an area where the ground is hard and rocky. Las time I was there I destroyed 6 of my trusty tent stakes, so I wanted something tougher. Since I was car/music festival camping; the heavy weight was not an issue and the stakes performed excellently. ALSO, the bright red color helped me keep track of them.

    I liked that these stakes came in a red color so they would be easy to see to avoid forgetting to remove when done using or someone tripping over. These are very solid stakes and the color is easily seen and is exactly what I was looking for.

    I just got back from the beach where we used these stakes to secure a 10’x10’ canopy on top of 10-12” of loose sand in steady winds. The winds each day were a constant 8-11 mph with gusts up to 20 mph. I used my foot to push the loose sand aside, deep enough to get to the solid stuff further down, and used a mallet to bury each stake for the guy lines. The stakes were amazing and simple enough to pull out of their place when time to decamp at the end of the day. If I had remembered how deep the sand was I may have opted for 18-24” stakes, although those felt excessive in the comfort of my own mainland home.

    I used another set of stakes to secure a 10’x10’ mat on top of the sand. Since the stress was significantly different from the wind tested guy lines, these 12” stakes were the perfect solution to keep the mat in place.

    I’d buy these again in a heartbeat if I were still in the market!

    Burly, excellent casting and paint for the price.

    One of the best tent stakes I’ve used. These are very heavy duty. Won’t bend or break if the ground is hard. They grip very well once driven in the ground. And a couple sideways taps back and forth and they are easy to remove when finished.

  6. James Wolf

    Very heavy duty for it’s size. Bought these to ancor ropes to hold 4×10 banner and work very good.
