These stakes are identical to those which came standard with my expensive 4-season tent, only about 3" longer. The manufacturing quality and material is identical to the expensive stakes, possibly made by the same manufacturer in the same factory, somewhere in China. I bought them for use in sand and in high winds because they were longer than standard stakes. The pull cords aren't reflective, but I don't think reflectivity of the pulls makes any real difference because the pulls are so small and so low to the ground that little light is reflected. Reflective pulls won't keep you from tripping on guy lines in the dark; only reflective guy lines will do that. If you're camping on hard ground, long stakes can be a disadvantage if they can't be driven fully into the ground because you can trip on the projecting stakes, so think about how long the stakes really need to be. Six inch stakes work adequately in the vast majority of situations. But to get 10 high quality stakes for 10 bucks is a great value. The little red carrying sack is a bonus. It would be hard to go wrong with these, unless they're longer than you need.
Solid stakes and lightweight. I used these on 2 different trips now and the triangle design swwms to make them lighter and more sturdier than the generic steel stakes that usually come standard with tents. I am buying another set for my 1man tent.
used these steaks in florida. The wind was blowing hard- these stakes are strong. I used a hammer to drive them in- they did not bend or break. The small ropes on them made it great for pulling them out. would buy these again 100 times over.
These are pretty good stakes, especially for the cost. The reflective cordage is a nice touch too. I'd stress you'd want to use bigger stakes if you have a larger tent and winds are expected but if you have a small one thse should work great. I got them to use with a Eureka single person backpacking tent and my hammock fly.
These stakes are so much better that the yellow plastic or little metal pin stakes that normally come standard with tents. The yellow plastic ones can be hard to drive into tough ground and the little metal ones tend to twist, which risks your tie-down line coming off. These go into the ground very nicely but hold really well and do not twist. I love that they have rope integrated into the ends for easy removal as well. They come in a decent little bag to keep them together and the dirt away from the other items in your pack.
