Rework of my lightest stick
I decided that I didn't like playing the two string one much and thought that it might have a wide enough neck to accommodate three strings. So I took the geared tuners off, plugged the holes ...

Needle stakes
The MSR version of these are my favorite stakes. I was sorry to see them be discontinued. I like them so much that I bought a bunch of the MSR ones to hoard for future use. That said I have no...

My ultralight stick

More stick comments

Thermarest Neo-Air
