Too short to work.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I don't see how these could be reviewed so well. Past staples I have used are 6" long and #11 wire. This is slightly overkill, but works well.

These staples are about 3" long and cant be more than #22 ga. Yes, they push into soil easily, and then...they pop right out. They aren't even close to holding "16 wire to my soil reliably. Maybe for thin wires for a 20M vertical, but for my 160M vertical, forget it.

Absolutely Perfect  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I was concerned when Ross' website was down due to personal family issues. I'm really glad that it has reopened.

The level of customer service and knowledge of radial usage is extraordinary. Ross is an absolute gentlemen and a pleasure to due business with. Highly recommended. Fair, honest and lightning fast shipping.

Good product, good service!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Just got the staples and haven't installed them yet. It's supposed to get very cold so I don't know when I'll do it. He provides a wealth of information and a DVD to boot! The price is much lower than what's shown above. Don't hesitate to buy these if you're installing radials. 73 ND3B

Very Useful For Securing Radials  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This product fills a definite need to provide a cost effective yet useful way of securing wire radials to the lawn so that grass thatch can in time overgrow the wires and permanently position them in a lawn. I recently created an 82-radial image plane consisting of 3,300 feet of copper wire cut into 40-foot radials to support a popular trap quarter wave vertical. I secured the 82 wires with about 1,100 radial anchor pins and yet the cost was extremely reasonable. The pins arrived fast and the company service was excellent. A great product with excellent service means you will be a satisfied customer as I was.

These are great! Don't install radials without them.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Ross is the Nordstrom of customer service. The radial pins are superb--Having now used them with a BigIR, I can't imagine installing radials without using them.

OUTSTANDING!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
You can't go wrong with the RossRadio radial staples! I'm in the process of rebuilding the ground system for my Part 5 experimental MF (475 KHz) station over grass, and the staples make it almost painless. It sure beats cutting and bending 100's of pieces of brazing rod.

I should add that the clips arrived in four days after ordering. A great purpose product!

Really Good!  Time owned: months
Let me start off by saying what effort Ross put into getting the pins to me. On a scale of 1 to 5 he was a TEN! The Post Office however gets a -100. If I was running a company like the Post Office is run, well, never mind. Unfortunately I think Ross lost money in the money spent for delivery.

Good product, GREAT service, & a general all round nice man to do business with. If all vendors were as decent as Ross is, oh baby, life would not only be good, it would GREAT.

Awesome  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Been using DXengineering biodegrdable plastic anchors but when installing in moist clayey soil (adobe), lightly hammering breaks them. Tried Ross Radio's anchors and they slide right in holding the ground radials tight. Ordered 2 bags and installed 32 radials. I may install another 32 and will definitely order more anchors.
