Re: Anchor Wars

The trouble with the video test is the precise angle of all rope rode, which may take advantage of a specific geometry of the Mantus. However, lets see it over a variety of scopes, with and without chain and at other weights.

Seriously, every single anchor manufacturer out there has determined the precise test they will win.

I'm not saying this isn't a good anchor, just that the video isn't as convincing as it was intended and may be backfiring a bit. Run it through all the paces and you may have something I've never seen another document.
