    What stakes do you use?

    I have some Ti shephards hook stakes, but they didn't seem too sturdy. What do you guys suggest? These will be for my new Warbonnet Mamajamba(just ordered can't wait to get it!)

    I just got some Sorex stakes from Ruta Locura... better holding power then my Ti Shepherd hook stakes, and they weigh less too! They are carbon fiber shafts w/ aluminum tips. They come in 6" and 9"

    I've been using cheep walmart ones fairly light. They stick well in soft but must be gentle in tough ground. At $3 for 4 though you're never too upset about messing one up or forgetting one.

    I use the MSR Ground Hog stakes. They hold up better in the rocky areas I frequent. They work pretty good on their side in the snow too. I tried some other Y stakes and the tops bent over really quickly. The MSR stakes seem to be a little stronger, so I will pay the extra money.
