    Just looked up the MSR Ground Hog, they look like the same, only the DIY GS are blue and cheaper!! I am color blind and the blue shows up better if dropped.

    I use Ti stakes with trail stick stake booms if I want to really save weight, but those blue stakes from Scott are really nice. They weigh 14 grams, compared to 20 grams for Ground Hogs.

    Hey KidShaleen,


    If you are near an M.E.C. (Mountain Equipment Co-op) try there. The nearest one to me is in Halifax, Nova Scotia and the last time I was there I picked up four for my tarp.
    Take care,
    Bluefin

    been using the ones from the HF store for years and never had a problem plus less cost. They are pretty much the exact same ones a DIY gear supply so go with the best cost

    I'm on my second set of these (split between 3 tarps). Just replace the sorry white cord with something reflective so they're easier to find.

    although I prefer the groundhogs, I found this 'with pictures' overview,
    although over the pond.

    I use the gutter spikes,,you can stick them in wet, black loamy soil and they hold very nice,,same for sandy soil,,not much weight loss either,,,and they have held in 50 plus winds on my 2 large tarps,,OMW by WL,,and 10' x 12' OES,,works perfect for me. For snow,,wood pieces,,rocks,,what ever works perfect in surroundings that is natural with weight on it, hard to get a stake out of frozen ground if you know what I mean.
