I have used a Delta a CQR 35# and for the last three years have relied solely on a 33# Bruce. My CQR is now my back up! The Bruce anchor sets faster and re-sets with a tremendiously high reliability rate compared to my CQR. I sail the Maine coast and most of the bottoms are thick clay like mud. The Bruce works about 30% better than any other anchor I''ve used. My anchor arsenal consists of a Bruce 33 a CQR 35 and a Fortress FX 16 as a lunch hook or stern anchor. I sold the Delta and was very unimpressed with it because it did not re-set well in a tide or wind shift. In most Maine anchorages it''s not very far to a rocky shore and usually by the time you hear the anchor alarm on the GPS it''s to late! Just my .02 worth....
