I was thinking of also selling a 8" Long Ti-Eye using a piece of 3.17mm rod (1/8") that would weigh right around 8.2 grams. This is the same rod thickness as the Vargo 6.5" shepards hook 8 gram stake but would be 1.5" longer. The extra rod thickness is a needed for this length stake. Due to the extra material it would be more costly. These would have to be more like $2.25-$2.50. I was going to make these available later on but if there is an interest I will make them available at the same time.
Interested in a few of each to try out for sure and for that price I'll probably end up wanting a dozen or so of each.
Change my order to 35 of the 8" Ti-eye type...

The day before your introductory offer, I ordered 12 Vargo shepherd hook Ti stakes. Darn! As usual, my timing is perfect. Oh,well. I just made my own Ti eyes from the Vargos.
I'll take 12 of each please!
6" will be available first and then the 8" will follow 2-3 weeks later.
Nice job on the Ti-Eyes.. I like how you left the eye open like mine. Works great for dead eye ends..
Thanks Mountainfitter. I would rather have your stakes, but the others were already ordered. Your's cost less, are painted and don't require modification! The blaze orange might help keep the kids from losing them.
Leaving the eye open is the only way to go. They also hook on a strap on the outside of my pack where I can secure them with the built in tool holder/bungee cord.
