Umm... I think this may be a tad unfair. While I don't know anything about Mr. Smith's anchors, his previous posts, or Mr. Smith for that matter, it would appear he was practically invited into this particular thread by Giu in the very second post to this thread. I wouldn't classify that as a hi-jack but a direct response.

I would ask... is there any reliable, independent test results out there that cover all of these types of anchors and conditions? Wouldn't this already have been a subject of extensive tests at Practical Sailor? I'm still pretty much a N00b, and between boats at that, but it would seem there should be some pretty sound test results out there... independent, unsponsored tests.
