It's too easy, in my opinion, for someone to mis-read this info and start using 3:1 with rope and a regular sized anchor, for example, which none of the experts you mentioned are recommending.

Even with a pure rope rode there is no benefit to >7:1? Do you have a link to their data? I love anchor geekery.

Rocna's 'Knowledge Base' offers a wealth of information, backed by extensive experience with anchoring in some of the most hostile conditions on the planet...
