Our Extreme Stake (front) and competitor H-wires (back) in 35MPH winds
To begin testing, we inserted our Exteme Stake into our lawn stage and attached red yarn to the sign edge, to help illustrate wind in photographs. We started testing at 5MPH and performed the incremental 5MPH increases, eventually reaching 45MPH direct line wind speeds.

The Extreme Stake performed exceptionally well in strong, direct line winds. We reached wind speeds just beyond 45MPH and the durable Extreme Stake stood against the wind well, bending slightly to accommodate the wind without sustaining any structural damage. After we stopped the wind tunnel, the stake quickly returned to its original position and appeared unaffected by the wind entirely.
