Use a bigger hammer

I completely agree with WHOOSH. Be careful about searching for the "best". You only need an anchor that is good enough. What that is will be mostly a matter of experience. Your experience that is. There are many, many variables that make one anchor the right one for you. Published anchor tests are not the final answer, in fact probably only a small part.
I have 15-20 years experience with a CQR and all chain rode. This is mostly East coast and Caribbean experience (Maine-Florida, Bahamas and most of the Caribbean). I am totally happy with that system.
The only thing that I can say for certain is that a bigger anchor will hold you better in most conditions and size is more important than style. If at first you don't succeed, use a bigger hammer
