What's the best sand spike?

I'm looking to get a few heavy duty sand spikes for pompano fishing. I'm done with PVC. I want something reasonably tall and made out of metal. I found a really good one online a ways back but I can't find it. It had a beer holder built in.

 

My budget is around $50 per spike. Obviously when it comes to spending money, less is always more.

 

What do you guys like to use?

 

Thanks for your responses.

50" Anglers Fish N Mate.   I'm on my second one.   The first one lasted about 8 years with heavy usage.   Love that you're able to secure it with your foot.   I have a bad back, but no bending with this product, plus it's light.

I like to the fish n mate also . Great for when you need a very good hold for sharking ,also like the 3 tands for portability.

I like those fold up ones. Is that two pieces for one spike or two different kinds?

I like the stainless spikes, the L bracket with tube welded on type, but I hate the way the reel stem rubs on the hard plastic lip

 

Adding an aluminum fence cap solves that problem and give you a loop to attach a bungee or strap so you can carry it over your shoulder

The holds are there so I could go in with a punch and flatten out the end of the pop rivets, help with drainage too

I don’t bother with sand spikes anymore.  Tripods are the way to go.

I can see the rod sailing out over the horizon when that big girl hits
