Not likely. I have never seen a "claw" fail. Even the "Sea Dog Line" claw anchors seem to do ok even when abused by the fishermen around here. I have had the 13lbs and 22 lbs horizon claw and have been perfectly satisfied, especially by the price. The design is such that you can't go too far wrong from the original Bruce design. I think the brand name thing is more important for the prestige/yachty thing. I have seen more than one CQR completely mangled by a coral head...
