    I use these. They are only $3 for a set of four at my local wallyworld.
    They are light, strong, and can't be beat for the price.

    Ditto. This is what I use, too. Comparable to the MSR Groundhogs and the price is RIGHT at $3 per four.

    Light weight. Low prices. Great gear.

    Also an MSR Groundhog fan. Great hold, relatively light and tough as anything I've seen. I live in rocky/compacted Colorado soil and have never had one bend or break.

    I just ordered a Superfly and picked up a handful of the new, mini MSR Groundhogs. Same shape as the originals, but a bit smaller. They look like they'll hold plenty well (they're about the same size as a lot of the V pegs out there) but are smaller and lighter than the originals.

    No tent stakes for me. I tie off to other trees, bushes, logs, rocks. In the rare times when nothing is in the right place, I pick up a stick and push it as far into the ground as I can and tie off to that. Hammock sites have plenty to tie off to since we are above it all, it is the tent sites which are clear of everything.
