Like these? Still about $2/ea, kinda pointy if you land on it wrong.
I got by with 12" or 18" cut rebar for a while. Works on hard ground, PVC slides over the top. 3/4" pipe is better for that, fits over the rebar more reliably plus it doesn't bend/snap so easily. Don't really need a notch on top, except if it's windy. Just a single snug wrap or two holds fine. Down side: if the PVC falls off, you've got a fall hazard there. Two things to carry, plus a solid hammer. Also, extrication can take longer & hard on the hands.
I've also been able to rent those step-in stakes from my local Park & Rec Dept and other promoters in the area.
You know what's best for soft ground? Fiberglass rods. Just shove 'em in and tap with a rubber mallet. You can carry a lot more, like a quiver of arrows.
i'll keep watching to see if they go back on sale.
sorry not on sale, they are $1.75 ea now
how many would u want?
ill check see if they are on sale still. maybe get you some.
Man, wish I lived closer, thats a killer deal. Anyone see anything like that in the southeast, post up
i watch the Menards ads, they usually put them (step in kind) on sale in the spring. i just got some 3 weeks ago for .99 ea.
if you have them in your area, check there they may still be on sale.
Any inexpensive ideas for course marking stakes other than the fairly expensive plastic step-in style ones?
I've seen 1/2" PVC pipe cut with a spike on one end and a notch in the top end on which to wrap caution tape. Other ideas?
I cannot say I've ever felt more or less drawn to a race knowing electronic timing would be used. Whatever is done needs to be done with backups, and done well!
Good luck with your decision!
