Advanced technology has finally come to the common ground stake. The patent pending X3 Anchor Stake is amazingly strong. It combines all the advantages of plastic with the strength of metal, the benefits of titanium without the cost. The X3 will not bend like plastic stakes, will not rust like metal. The head will not mushroom, so pound it in place with whatever you have available and when you need to remove the X3, grab it with your multi-tool, wrench or hand and twist it with an upward motion and back it out. Our stakes are the perfect application for camping, backpacking, around the house or on the job. We believe that you will be impressed with the X3, so we guarantee it.

The X3 stake is made of Vydyne R533 Series glass reinforced resin. Generally, Vydyne R533 Series resins have tensile strength and modulus properties just below aluminum and zinc and can replace these metals in numerous applications due to an excellent balance of properties. In this particular application, however, the tensile strength is higher than most aluminum competitors because the X3 is solid resin where the aluminum stakes are often hollow or made of multiple pieces. Reduction in production costs, energy consumption, and part weight are key advantages of Vydyne glass reinforced resins over aluminum.
