I purchased these in April 2020 to stake a small tent. They are too short and are worthless in sandy soil or soil that is not "clayish" enough to hold them in the ground - even with the spiral. The stakes come out at the slightest wind.
However, I found a better use for them and ordered another set together (so now own 8 stakes in total. I have had several home property surveys done over the year to square away where to build a fence, how far over to build a shed etc. Surveyors ALWYAS use cheap wood as stakes which disintegrate or are pulled out by my neighbor on one side. I had some "plastic type' black stakes that do not disintegrate the last time I had a survey (6 years ago) and put a red poly type string on each stake and buried them across from something in my yard so I can find them again if needed. The black stakes are difficult to find after the string which is still on them faded to gray. My neighbor is on vacation so I went out there and found one and tied an orange string to it to find the other 4 in the front yard. (4 in back yard also) 8 on 1 side of my house in total). Anyway, I used these red aluminum stakes in the ground next to the original black stakes and put a small gray rock (painted bright pink underneath) over each red stake. Looking at the yard, no one can tell there is anything out of place and even if the rocks get moved, it is easier to find the stakes because they are red and never fade or disintegrate.
So, while these stink as tent stakes, they are great to use as property stakes.
Used these stakes, came back to my camp site later in the day, only to find my tent flapping in the breeze. Upon closer inspection, some POS had swiped my stakes, and to give the lowlifes partial credit, used their cheap steel tent stakes to replace mine, which pulled out in the wind. I guess it was better than letting my tent blow away, but not by much. So, take this as a recommendation, these stakes are good enough to steal. Not sure how one would combat that, other than catching them in the act.
These are very high quality specialized stakes and recommended for very sandy conditions. I purchased 2 sets of these for a camping trip to White Sands National Monument, where I expected high winds and lots of loose sand (duh). We pitched our tent (Hilleberg Nallo 2) in the slightly packed sand in between the dunes and these stakes performed perfectly.
Pros: - Their long length (9 13/16”) and spiral shape gives them more friction (in all directions) in loose sand compared to standard stakes - Nice red anodized finish makes them easy to clean and see
Cons: - They don’t come with a stuff sack, and due to their length they will not fit nicely in the bag with your old stakes. I’m still looking for a stuff sack that fits them nicely. - They are more than twice the weight of normal Y-stakes (34g vs 13-16g), which means you don’t simply want to bring them for every trip, if not absolutely necessary. - They are a bit pricy.
So overall they are highly recommended for when the conditions are suitable, but they are a bit too bulky and heavy to bring on every camping trip (hence 4/5 stars).
I used the MSR Cyclone Stake Kit with a 10' x 10' Shade Tent and the King Kanopy 17 inch Weight Bags during a week long trip to the Jersey Shore. I planted these stakes at a 45 degree angle into the unpacked sand and they provided a remarkable amount of grip.
Last year, we had to hold down our friends' shade tent during a particularly gusty hour at the beach and I decided to purchase these stakes when we brought our tent this time around. It was worth the few bucks for the piece of mind.
These stakes are much more substantial than the thin rods that came with our tent and they are still short enough to fit in the tent's carrying case. I never had to replant these stakes once during our week at the beach. At the end of each day, our tent lines were still taut.
I will still be using the rods that came with our tent when we pitch it in our back yard, since these Cyclone Stakes seem like they would be impossible to remove from packed dirt.
I would highly recommend these tent stakes for use at the beach.
These are my "special circumstance" stakes. Theyre too big and heavy to carry all the time. If there has been lots of rain, Ill carry a few with me. They hold really well when the ground has been saturated. If you pound these into hard clay, youre going to have to destroy the ground to get them back out. They hold that well.
Just what I needed, and worked super well! We got caught in a hurricane during beach camping and had to take shelter in a more heavy duty tent, leaving my tent with just a few light bags inside. I thought all our stuff was done for, but these stakes worked like a charm! They stayed put and the tent was in place and intact by the time the storm stopped.
The only issue is I wish they sold them in packs of different sizes-- my tent takes 5 stakes so I had to order two sets and now I have extras I don't know what to do with.
I haven't been using these for tent stakes yet, but they have been supporting my hop bines for the summer, and have stayed in the ground through some pretty high wind/thunder storms that tossed the heavy bines around quite a bit. If they can hold those bines, they can for sure hold a tent assuming some decent dirt to push into. The straight aluminum pegs hold for awhile, but pull out too easy with the swaying motion, so there is clearly a difference in holding power with this helix design.
Length is 9 7/8 inches, which makes them enough longer that 8 of them is a pretty good chunk of pack space.
yes it's bine not vine. Difference in how they climb - tendrils vs basically fish hooks that destroy my arms.
During my sailing / cruising days it was vitally important to have a secure anchor in order to have a good nights sleep. Certainly didn't want to end up on the rocks or drifting about in the open sea somewhere. These tent stakes give me the same secure nights sleep. Oh it may blow, but my tent isn't going anywhere.
