    Some more Sorex 9" stakes, and some 6". I've been sufficiently convinced by the robustness that I am happy to use these all round rather than a mix with Eastons.

    Where is the best place to get one from. I can see many sources on Aliexpress but is there a difference between versions?

    I’ve been experimenting :) So far I’ve used my Cricket, Notch, Khufu and Protrail, but I’ve come to the conclusion that a tarp and bivvy is the way to go outside of bug season.
    I find I’m riding at lower levels than when I’m hiking and it’s a lot easier to just chuck down a bivvy than hunt for a nice flat pitch.

    I’m still new to it though and always learning

    Thanks shewie
    I thought the cricket or mid + Bivi might be good option, I wondered when I had my cricket how well the carbon poles would stand up in a bigger mid than the Gatewood I have, which the pole works ok but not had it in any strong winds. I've not got a lot of experience of either mids or carbon poles, so just finding out off people that do. How do you find the khufu? Has it replaced the solomid? I like mids and going to take my time choosing another for the future. I miss having the cricket now, but that may be because I find it hard to let things go:angelic:

    I really like the Khufu, it’s replaced my Solomid and Duomid

    (although I did order a sil Solomid XL a couple of months ago :whistling:)

    @Shewie How long have you been waiting for your Solomid? I ordered my Duomid 7 weeks ago. I know the website says between 8 -12 weeks.
