    The andonized aluminum shepard's hook stakes you find at REI, here. I have the burnt orange ones, and they match the speer no tangle on my guyouts.

    I've got MSR ground hogs, and the same type stakes from both the HF.net store and BWDD. They are all great and the only stakes I use.

    I am kind of partial to the blue BWDD stakes myself...

    I was using the MSR ground hogs or the needle stakes that I picked up with my Hubba HP. I now use the Mountainfitter ti-eye stakes. light weight and with the eye centered they tend to hold the line well and not bend as easy.
    In winter or for Really hard ground I use the Vargo ti nail stakes or homemade snow anchors.

    +1 For Mountainfitters Ti-eye stakes. I have the 6" stakes and they have worked great! I spent the night in my backyard the other night and it was super windy, maybe 30mph with 45mp gusts. My system held very well I'm very proud.

    I started using the Easton 9" stakes and love them. Very easy to put into the ground and super strong...and light

    I've cut up alum arrows - plan to test soon.

    edit to add: 8 of these weigh just under 2oz.
    ranging from 6 - 8"

    I just got my ti-eyes yesterday and set up my tarp with em last night.

    Pros
    Very lightweight
    Small
    Strong
    The closed eye has a small gap which is the perfect size for 2mm dyneema so you can tie a loop in your cord and just fit it over.

    Cons
    You need to push it all the way into the ground because it's a little short, but, that also means it has an ideal level of failage (you'd rather your line pull out than your tarp rip).
