If you are going to post factually worded statements you might want to back them up? Please show us:

1- Where a Rocna failed a sheer test. Links to this sheer test might help.

2- The Lloyds test that it failed to not get a "pass" on..

Rocna anchors are RINA certified not Lloyds and they do now have that certification despite still being produced in China.... The RINA and Lloyds numbers for SHHP are nearly identical so if one anchor passes RINA it is using nearly the same load standards as Lloyds and vice versa.

Proof Load Testing Rocna 55 - 29 Metric Tons

It took roughly 64,000 pounds to bend that Rocna 55kg anchor.... It never failed at a weld only bent at approx 64,000 pounds of force..
