I don't remember the numbers exactly. As I recall, Manson was in same range, Rocna was higher, and Fortress was higher. 35lb. Mantus is listed on their website at $330. Also, they had a post in the recent thread about "new generation anchor" wherein they had a limited time special, but not sure if that has timed out. As I explained above, I wanted one that I could store on board readily, and only two fit that: Fortress, Mantus. I understand that there is a Spade that disassembles too, but I didn't check that one out. Fortress, while requiring only 2 bolts to assemble and being lighter due to aluminum construction, is really a refined Danforth design. Knowing always what bottom is there is not possible, so in my mix of anchors, the Mantus gave me one of the new spade types so that my mix covered more bottom possibilities.
