I have a set of these and they've been quite good in harder ground and not too bad in soft. I have found that on several occasions they have either pulled out in high winds or twisted around allowing my line to slip off the hook. I have decided to replace them with Zpacks carbon nail pegs which I'm hoping will offer a little more grip with a comparable weight.
I have a set of these and they've held up well. Most of the times that I've used them, I've pitched tents in Grand Canyon, and that soil is ridiculously hard.

I've been using the MSR sand/snow gadget in the GC. Essentially a hefty nylon square about 6x6 inches with line at the corners you attach to guy lines. Put a rock in it and it works perfectly. Enjoy the GC. Cheers
Check out Zpacks 6" Titanium shepherd hook stake w/ orange head $2.00 each if you order 8. Or $2.25 single. Just another option. Happy Trails.
I wish Mass drop would offer upgraded shipping options. It's been 6 days since my order was shipped, and it's not going to arrive for 14 more days. Fed ex is horrible. Could have spent $3 on first class mail and it would have been here in 3-5 days. Horrible. I don't think I'll ever order off mass drop again.
Estimated ship date= March 23rd. I leave to thru hike the Appalachian trail April 3rd. Do I risk it? How accurate are the estimated ship dates?

I’m a regular buyer here, and massdrop usually ships before the estimated date In my experuences. Good luck.

Everything I have ordered on massdrop has shipped before the ship date. Not that it's good gauge to use, but an FYI. Since tent stakes are a rather small part of importance in your AT thru hike kit, if I was in the same situation I would order them. worse case is you use whatever you have and have them sent to you at your first mail drop. Good luck on your thru hike Adam, enjoy !
Hate to rain on this parade (I like Massdrop a lot), but you can get all these stakes much cheaper directly from China, where I believe they all are made, have a look on Ebay.

But they take like a month and a half to arrive... Lol

Great i missed out on the hook pegs which are now sold out
Do these fit in the toothpick crossbow? :)
Do these seem to be heavy for ti stakes? I've got aluminum stakes that are lighter than these numbers.
VanCity
They are a little heavy compared to another brand TI stake I have at .2 oz each. I think they might be slightly longer. In general, TI stakes are not much lighter then AL stakes, but are much stronger and can take a beating when dealing with driving them into rocky soil. My experience over the years, not based on any study, so I'm sure not all will agree.

Yeah, I’ve used these Vargo shepherds hook stakes all last year and put them through the ringer. Never bent once. Incredibly strong compared to aluminum stakes. Worth the price.
Can't believe this 5usd thing can call for 16usd

But if you order stakes from HK and have them shipped to the US, it takes 40-60 days to arrive.
Adamusg
No idea, when I buy from US I get it in a week or two
Can anyone else comment on the quality/durability of the three versions. Rubush's comment below made me a little concerned as I was going to be ordering the v-shaped pegs as well. Can anyone else confirm?

I mentioned this above, but I’ll say the same here. I’ve used the shepherd hooks all last year. Put about 700 trail kms on them. Very rocky rough soil here in Nova Scotia and I put them through the ringer. They never bent once, incredibly strong stakes. I didn’t use rocks or a hammer to knock them in, though. The most I did was use my foot and all my body weight on them. Can’t speak about the other versions but the shepherd hooks are very robust and durable.
Hard and soft are the ground. Which type will you encounter? I have stakes for hard and soft, and other conditions.
1 should not use rocks or hammers to put in stakes, you put your foot on them and use your body weight to push them in. Exceptions of course if ground is rock hard or you're in snow.
