    I have been using a combination of two different types, Vargo Ascent stakes for my corners, and sheppards for the others. Got them from here http://www.zpacks.com/accessories/stakes.shtml.

    Recently I acquired a Cuben Hex from HammockGear and am testing out the Easton Nano stakes, lighter than the others (well except for the Ti Sheppards) and can pound the heck out of them without bending (well so far so good).

    They are light, strong, and can't be beat for the price.

    +1 on the Walmart cheapos. Cheap, light, and strong.

    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.

    Usually carry a few MSR Ground Hogs and the rest, cut down (half length) aluminum gutter spikes with reground tips. They're cheap, light and their size gives pretty good holding power.

    Eventually I'll buy some Ti stakes.
