I have used the anchor for a year with 100% success rate on setting without the roll-bar....
Roll-bar only serves this function, flips the anchor into the correct orientation. It was an earlier prototype, before we decided to put the roll bar on.....
Sorry it's taken so long to ask a follow up question, but I've been away for much of the last few weeks and this topic slipped my mind.

My question is, wouldn't this occurrence (anchor flipping and not being able to dig in) be just as likely with a CQR or a Delta?
