3D model description

No frills, simple and effective tent stake that weighs in at 5 grams. For all you ultralight backpackers, that means a set of 6 is just over 1 oz! the stake parts are designed to fit a common carbon fiber arrow shaft (6 mm id 7.5 mm od carbon fiber tube). I use these little stakes to pitch my hammock rain fly but you ca use them for any ground cloth or tent. Swing by your local archery range for some trash arrow shafts an they are almost free.

Cut down the arrow shafts with a fine toothed saw or rotary tool to appx 15 cm or 5.5"-6". File off the burs and use a dab of super glue to hold the inserts in place. Happy hiking! careful with the carbon fiber tube, it splinters like crazy. Cut slow and try wrapping with masking tape.
