- High strength custom aluminum alloy, TH72M, is the equal of the strongest and most advanced alloys in the world today. 20% stronger than aerospace grade 7075-T6, more than twice as strong as 6061-T6, and more than three times stronger than 6063-T6 (the most common stake material)
- Lightweight- S: .40 oz/each, M: .50 oz/ea, L: .70 oz/ea, sM: .46 oz/ea, Extremely compact: V-shape lets stakes nest together.

V-Best stakes are engineered by DAC – the world’s top tent pole maker – to be extremely lightweight AND strong; easily withstanding the pounding that users regularly dish out when their stakes hit hidden rocks. They’re available in three widths because, obviously, different sized stakes hold best in different ground: ‘S’ for hard ground is easiest to drive in (and pull back out), ‘L’ for soft ground has the most holding power, and ‘M’ for in between. The sM size – short Medium – is used by several premium tent brands as their one-size-fits-all stake.
