Re: Question regarding Rocna Anchor's Roll Bar

The 'roll' bar helps the anchor when it is first deployed, it (obviously) is intended to roll the anchor over and get the point down.
After that all of these new generation anchors are deep digging, they little burrow down. Think feet not inches.

Besides, the roll bar is a square foot or so of 'target', your whole rode can be snagged and then pulled sideways and lifted.
Don't worry the small stuff, worry the big.
