Assuming you don't use a tensioner, knot bone, or some other gadget, what knots do you guys like for your stakes?
I see a lot of mention of the marlin spike for this.
After reading Jardine's book, I always use a clove hitch.
Like a marlin spike, once you slip the stake you, you can tug and it will untie itself.
I think they may actually be the same knot just tied differently, at least they are both a bit inside another bite.
Its also not far from being a constrictor knot, but not quite.
