    What stakes do you use?

    I make my own on-site as needed.
    That's how I justify the weight of carrying a knife.

    Re: What stakes do you use?

    I have ti hooks from Lawson equipment with orange heat shrink ob the top so I cab see them. Y stakes are on the list though because a lot of ground around here isn't great for pins.

    I just picked up some titanium nail pegs from vargo after bending/breaking a few of my groundhogs on frozen ground. Otherwise, normally make my own on site.

    Who need justification to bring a blade into the woods? I don't even leave my house without one.

    I also have a mamajamba, and I use msr groundhog stakes now. I used to have titanium shepherd hooks, and they are strong, but come out a lot... I still carry a couple of them for the tie out points, though.

    In windy conditions I use these;

    Fairly light (19 gram, 2/3 oz) but strong. They have a good hold in softer soil. Otherwise, I am happy with Ti sherherd hooks.

    I use Lawsons Ti shepherd stakes and also Alpkits Ti shepherds. My stakes are captive to my guy lines so I don't have to an archeaologists hunt for buried stakes.

    The thin gauage of the wire penetrates rocky ground very well. If the ground's soft and won't hold the Ti's, sticks are used instead.

    MSR Mini Groundhog Stakes. A lot smaller than their larger cousins. Where I usually hike they've been perfect - the soil is usually not totally dry or super sandy. They work very well in silty or loamy soils. I would imagine due to their short length they would have trouble in pure sand or snow though.
