$1.50 Ti stakes at myDIYgear.com on 04/05/2011 21:15:12 MDT Print View

Ti tent stakes are $1.50 each at myDIYgear.com with free shipping on the stakes. Randy Smith AKA Papa Smurf at Hammock Forums is the seller, says he has 2400 of them. He stocks 3 lengths in each of 3 or 4 diameters so there are ten choices.

I have no connection to him. My very first order is pending.

The bottoms look flat. Do most ti stakes have flat bottoms?

Hi, PapaSmurf here.
Yes, these do have flat bottoms.
I've seen them offered flat, tapered & pointy.

Why wouldn't you want to have the bottom pointed enough that they will penetrate hard soil?

I'm sure he could but it would cost us the end user more. I'm glad they are what they are....great price for some lightweight stakes. I'm eyeing those 3.1 gram ones

I'll try a few. on 04/06/2011 14:26:00 MDT Print View

I'll taper a few tonight and see if it makes much of a difference. If so, I'll taper the rest.

Some people like the bottom rounded so that it does not chew a hole in a stake bag. I have some that are sliced off on the bottom, leaving a bottom edge. The best ones have a slightly rounded point. That gives a good compromise of being able to penetrate hard soil, yet it doesn't really chew up the stake bag.

Get them about as sharp as the business end of a ballpoint pen. Sharp enough to be pushed into hard soil, but not sharp enough to puncture your skin if it were pushed in.

Picked up a set of the 1/8" dia 6" L ones...we'll see how they work

I considered the slightly smaller diameter ones, but figured the slight increase in weight was worth a little better bend resistance.

Can someone recommend which diameter to buy? Right now I'm using REI Tri-Stakes and those have worked out pretty well for me, so I'm looking for similar strength stakes at lighter weight.
