I tend to lose stakes regularly, so I don't have any really special custom ones.
Most are golf ball stakes, but I've got 3 that are a little bit different.
L-R a stake I won from Dan Whitney made out of a deer horn, a :) stake for sand and a dice stake.
I probably use the dice stake the most.

Either an iQuad golf ball stake, or Derooy's pointy little head.

me. I got a selection of screwdrivers. Posidrive for light wind. Flat head for more moderate winds. 12" flat for howling gales.

Yeah... I just have a tennis ball attached to a tent stake. (You can see it in my new video on the side of the frame)

I'm going to fit some iQuad golf balls onto those very soon at which point, yes, we'll have some for sale. :-)

I hope non-UK members can access this site:

If not, I'll put a summary on here.

When I saw this, I thought, wow that would make a gross ground stake!

At Wildwood I had my PB 2/4 on my Sam Adams stake. The wind really picked up and I figured it was time to put the 2/4 away. When I came back to take it down I found three other revs and the 2/4 attached to the one ground stake. Almost a power stack but not quite!

Here's a couple more I put together this afternoon.

I modified the design, you can see I removed the nut and washer for a smoother finish. I measured how many threads would go into the beer tap and then cut the bolt so it only had that many threads. Then I coated both the internal threads on the beer tap and the threads on the bolt with thread lock.

I like the results.

My Sister works in a restaurant.

She called me yesterday and said she has a line on a really cool one. I can't wait.
