Re: Another "Next Generation" anchor enters the market...
It you are concerned about bending, it is worth looking at the warranty anchor manufacturers offer. Most companies proudly state a lifetime warranty, but exclude deformation.
Mantus, Fortress, Rocna, Ultra and Anchor Right are the only manufacturers that cover you if you get your anchor stuck under a rock and bend it. Mantus go a bit further and include free shipping.
It's also important to keep in mind that a "lifetime warranty" should be thought of in terms of the lifetime of the company, not you. Not to pick on Mantus, but they're only two years old. I appreciate their warranty terms but only time will tell if they're around to back it up when necessary. Same goes for the others.
