I have around 2000 Northwinds stakes. They are 18" long and are made out of 7/16" dowel. Bottom are pointed, tops have a bolt retainer to hold the Northwind from sliding off the top of the stake. I'm also including the plastic caps...same as you get with Knutson's economy Northwinds to hold the decoy from sliding down the stake. These are all used stakes but in great shape...once you use these you'll get rid of all those 3/8 dowels that break all the time. The price is $15 per hundred plus shipping.
