why not just go out and use the anchor to see if it works..
i will again offer to accept all unwanted bruce anchors. i want 3 more. 25kg and up in weight, as appropriate for my boat.
I think that's probably what most folks pretty much wind up doing, in the end...

Steve Dashew, for instance... He's someone who knows a fair bit about anchoring. For a long time, he was a staunch and vigorous advocate of his belief that your Bruce was the world's finest all-around anchor...

Until, he tried a 'New Generation' Rocna, that is... And, he's never looked back, since... :-)
