I have never used a metal sandspike. What makes this design, or similar metal designs, better than the four foot peice of PVC that I have been using? The metal design looks heavier, and could have sharp edges. The metal design is (I assume) more expensive and labor intensive to build.
Yes, more labor intensive, probably more expensive. Haven't made 'em yet. I do think I'll add a step to my cobbled up angle spikes though. I made mine from aluminum scrap I had laying around along with donations from my old pvc spikes.
