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.
After ordering an identical tent for my son, I took his stakes because I needed a few extra…and ordered the 7” Super Sonic stakes for his tent. It went smooth until camping out in a severe thunderstorm packing 60 mph winds! I spent half the night holding my tent down with my body after half my stakes ripped out of the ground. Not fun. Meanwhile, the 7” Super Sonic stakes easily held my son’s tent in place. Needless to say, it’s Super Sonic all the way around now! Don’t make the same miSTAKE I did. You’ll be more than conTENT with the Super Sonics! Thanks Zpacks!
These are the ideal stake for super strong holding power in high winds or storms. I use them on my end guy outs for extra security. An excellent twisty design really seams to work well.
Thank you for your customized mindset on my reorder this time
Work very well even in the rockies. I would not want to go any lighter than these. Very pleased with this purchase.
These tent spikes are awesome !! Even kept my tent upright on beach sand !!! Which is cool because most tent pegs just come right out in sand :)) very happy !! They are light and the bright blue colour is easy to see so less chance of losing them :))
