    This is why I use them .. the length works well in our sandy soil .. I used 14'' { knotted & doubled makes a 6'' lead} of 1.75 and Dutch's FlyZ .. you can push them all the way into the ground .. then use the 1.75 to pull 'em out .. I really like the Flyz as a tensioner ..

    Yet another Groundhog user here. Has managed to stand up to FL sand, GA clay, and hardpack car camping pads. Holds well in sand, even in moderate to high wind. Light, though not the lightest. Readily available. Doesn't bend when you use your foot to push it into the ground.

    Hope it helps!

    I've got MSR needles and GoLite stakes. The needles are super strong and I've never bent one, and they are the lightest. But they are like $2 each. The GoLite stakes are only slightly heavier and a great deal at $10 for 8. They go into the ground really easily too.

    I make my own on the spot unless I'm going where the ground is hard pack. Then I use MSR Groundhogs.

    I have accumulated several different kinds of stakes over the years, but these are my favorite.
