Anchor -manson and tipping line

Anchor Choice is my second question of the day

I am looking to replace my danforth as the primary and go with a Manson Supreme.

I have heard godo things and the pricing is good. I am sailing in around Block, Nantucket, Sag Harbor and Narragansett Bay.

The Danforth fails in Eel Grass. Dutch harbor and CuttyHunk being the 2 optimal points where the air turned blue as I tried to set my anchor (danforth).

My questions are:
Anyone have anything bad to say about the Manson?

Also, the Tipping Line...this would be my first anchor that has a sliding space for the tipping line (vs having another line set at the pivot point of the anchor).

Does anyone have a "hell no, dont use it..go with the fixed point of the Manson" experiences?
