7" Super Sonic Stake
These Y-Beam stakes are the largest and strongest that we have. The 7-inch length and large diameter give them excellent holding power.
These are difficult to bend. They are strong enough to withstand being hammered or pounded with a rock, however the top end may get chewed up so we would still recommend avoiding hammering. If the ground is too firm, turn them sideways and anchor them with a rock.
These are bright blue, which makes them hard to lose. They have a cord on the end to make it easy to pull them out of the ground.
Weight: .44 ounces (12.5 grams) including the cord
Length: 7 inches (17.8 cm)
Diameter: 11.5 mm
Material: High grade aluminum
Holding Power: Best
Bend Resistance: Best
Ultralight stakes should never be hammered or they could get bent or damaged. Hold your foot in both hands for stability, and guide the stake into the ground with your body weight. If the ground is too solid to drive in stakes, anchor them with rocks instead.
Non-Freestanding tents can be pitched just about anywhere with a little creativity. If the ground is too firm, wedge just the tip of your stakes in, and then anchor them with rocks. If you are camped above tree line on stone, wrap the guy lines around rocks to anchor them. On beach sand, you can use rocks, driftwood, etc. as anchors for the tent guylines. On wooden tent platforms you can wedge the stakes between the boards, or use extra line to tie off to the ends of the platform. There are many ways to make it work if you use your imagination.
As far as stakes go, this one is perfect. Super Sonic doesn’t even begin to describe how these will ********* the ground. If there were another level above Super Sonic, these would be that.
Always a good one with Zpacks products
Package was delivered quickly with no problems. The stakes have held up well so far. I can’t wait until I get to use them on the PCT!
I have received and very much enjoy the stakes, stake bag and light load towels. They are all exactly as advertised and just what I wanted. I am looking forward to your holiday sale as I am already putting together a list of additional items! Keep up the great work!
I have ordered these in the past and and needed more to add to what I already have. I really like the length for my needs and they have great holding power and don’t come out!! Like any stake if you are on hard ground or a rock don’t keep hammering on them if they won’t go I, use common sense, or they could break at the neck.
