Carbon Fiber Stakes is a great choice for soft terrain. These stakes are incredible light, one set of stakes can save at least 40g/1.4oz weight.
Made with a Carbon Fiber shaft with aluminium tip & cap, these stakes have the best holding power/weight ratio of any of the stakes.
Red metal cap to make them easy to find and easy to pull out of the ground.
Thicker than same-weight metal stakes which allows them to grip the ground better. A smooth surface makes them easy clean with leaves.
These are the only stakes that can be carried through airport X-ray scan security in our experience.

Ultralight carbon stakes should never be hammered or they could break or be damaged. Hold your one foot in both hands for stability, and step the stake into the ground. If you meet hard terrain, please use rocks holding the stake above, and make it act as an anchor.
The carbon shafts are very rigid and cannot be bent. if they are stressed excessively they may break. The metal tips which are bonded in place may come unglued. So it is a good idea to have a tiny tube of instant glue in your gear repair kit.
