Has anyone used these in snow to anchor a tent? I bought a set of the "parachute" type anchors and decided they weren't even worth the trouble to use in sugar/dry/depth hoar snow. At 7 oz. these weigh the same as the smaller snow flukes available from MSR and SMC. I was wondering if anyone had successfully used them, particularly in tough snow conditions?

I used these to anchor a large canopy into the sand. The wind was around 6-8 knots steady with 10 knot gusts. The holding power was so strong that the poles were bending but the stakes showed no signs of movement at the end of the day. I have 100% trust in these.
It'll hold a boat
We used one of these to tether our fully loaded raft on a Grand Canyon trip to the beaches and it held beautifully. I was amazed at the holding power in the sand. It's great to even have as a backup if there are no trees to tie to. Highly recommended.
