You are half right
I use a 15lb bruce knock off w/20' of 5/16 ht chain and "not sure how many ft of 1/2" three braid rode. 28' boat at 8k loaded. IMHO you can't beat a bruce lb for lb.
Pound for pound you certainly can beat a Bruce - even a real one. On the other hand, dollar for dollar a Bruce knock-off does pretty well.
Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
