    Mine came in today, and I like them a lot. Can't wait to give them a good test run.

    Looking forward to the report. These are near the top of my "to buy next" list. Really want to hear how they work out for you.

    Thanks in advance.

    B. Skip., I have a bunch and mine work great. No complaints. The blunt ends are a good balance. I can still drive them easily, and they don't bust up anything in my pack.

    Thanks. My son and I will probably get a mess of them for Christmas. He is for now grounded (in a tent, not being punished), and as his tent is non-free standing, he wants the lighweight stuff. Ok, I admit, so do I.

    Good to hear that the blunt ends drive easily. How is the holding power? And have you had a problem with them bending? Just curious.

    Haven't had any problems with them bending. They hold fine, but aren't as tenacious as say a Y-stake, but that's to be expected for a hook style stake.

    It seems like people prefer the blunt tips so I went ahead an made another 500 of them today. Thanks for everyone's feedback, business and continued support.

    Hold great in my back yard, but have not have a chance to get them out to the "piney wood" and do a proper test. Hoping to test them out tomorrow night again while I do a test of a friends Jarbridge UQ...considering a 3/4 quilt to save a little pack space.
