    +1 for the ones at DIY Gear Supply.
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    I'm mixing mine up,,ti stakes from Lawsons, a few gutter nails, and few groundhog stakes as you never know what kind of soil your going to get into, or how damp it might be. I really think you need a variety especially with the costs of a good tarp and the unpreditablity of the weather any more. And I carry enough for the wife's tarp too.

    Suggestions please? Looking for stronger and possibly lighter if possible.

    Thanks in advance!

    "Use a bigger hammer"

    could be a good solution. At least, close to home or car, or if you're the Scoutmaster getting your kids ready for USMC boot camp.

    Otherwise, the right titanium is optimal, isn't it?

    Indeed not; and better baby sledge hammers in backpacks for a training run than just rocks. Easier on the hands when driving those stakes.

    Necropost! I revive you!

    ok ok ok... But at least this is on topic.

    This thread got me thinking about upgrading to Ti stakes if only to have a comparison vs. Al stakes. My reluctance has primarily been due to the lack of Y style stakes (which I most commonly use) being available in Ti. Well, after some extensive and exhausting battles with google I located the items I wanted.

    Item# lmt120033 @ campingworld.com listed as "Titanium Crevice Stake" $3.95 each, but I took the plunge and ordered 6. Along with 6 of item# lmt120003 listed as "Titanium Hook Stake 165mm" total w/shipping & sales tax was $55.91. (wow! This stuff is expensive)

    These items are drop shipped from the manufacturer and the site over estimates the delivery time. I called to ask about this and was told I should have them in 7-10 days.

    I will do a review post, maybe I will get my video on, once they have arrive and I've had a chance to do some testing.
