anchors

Having used a CQR plow anchor for many years I have been reading numerours articles on how "great" other styles are. My questions is what anchor is more reliable then a CQR based on actual, not theoretical situtations. All different anchors will shine in at least one type of bottom, but as a cruiser I have found the CQR to be the best holding in all types of botttoms. This assumes a anchor of correct size, at least 50 feet of chain and Line to equal at least 7 to 1 scope.
