And do you have a windlass?
Yes, I've heard performance pound for pound on these anchors is similar...but my question is more along the lines of whether either of these anchors is sized right...for the boat I have.

I would like some feedback from people that have bought these next-gen anchors in terms of size per loa and cruising weight.

I dont trust those sizing charts and simply sizing up is not always appropriate as the bigger anchors are troublesome fits on bow rollers
