    I'm needing half a dozen long stakes & like others have found they're a rare beast outside of the US & shipping + VAT + RM fee make buying 6 really expensive.
    I found the 20cm Bigsky tube stakes, I was a bit sceptical about them not heard of them before but they get a good Review from Sectionhiker & seem fairly commonly used across the pond. The Bigsky's are slightly lighter than the Eastons & 2cm shorter than the golds but the way the heads/ cord loop is attached means that the heads are much less likely to be pulled off, a feature I like having had 2 Eastons come off.
    I looked at the purchase of 48 from the US (cost below 12% duty threshold), the cost for 6 would be ~£20 including delivery within the UK.
    Anyone interested??

    Yes, but my location (Belgium) might be an annoyance... for me :D

    Delivery to Belgium would add about £3 to the bill; Royal Mail large envelope not tracked.

    I'm keen, count me in. Arne and I talked about these recently.

    Shame they don't seem to stock them on the international site.

    Yes please!
    Worth a go.

    I've had 2 tops come off Eastons in the past (out of 24 pegs and several hundreds of pitches). It's not the end of the world, as they can be araldited back on, but can be a PITA retrieving them from the ground, and means being a long peg down on a trip.

    I had my first top come off when I was on the CWT with Arne, hence the discussion and our discussion. It was an absolute nightmare to get out of the ground and made worse by the fact I was taking it out to reposition whilst setting up.

    Perfect timing @Whiteburn
    I'll try 6 of these. If you struggle to get orders to order 48, I could take an extra 2.
    Thanks

    Me too, although I’ve a feeling you’ve already hit the 48

    Edit: Yup posts crossed

    The 48 have gone, didn't want to go past this quantity as they would attract an extra 15%, if enough come along I'll place another order.
