S&J 45 Ground tackle?

What are you guys using for ground tackle? I have a 45 lb CQR plow with 150' of 3/8 bbb chain, a 35 lb danforth with 20' of 3/8 bbb and 250' of 3/4" nylon rode, a little 22 lb danforth lunch hook with 20' of 5/16 bbb and 150' of 5/8" nylon rode, and just picked up a 65 lb danforth and 250' of 3/8 bbb. I have not used the new anchor and chain yet as I dont have a windlass... ... yet! I am not very impressed with the holding power of the CQR in our all sand bottom here in the Gulf, the danforth fluke style seem to hold much better. What are you guys using and in what type of bottom?
