Has anyone had experience with the Rocna anchor? It looks very interesting. Also another company making a Rocna look-alike called Manson (I believe).
Also heard good things about the spade anchor.
Understanding indivudual boat/bottom/etc., yield different results, but I am interested in hearing your thoughts.

Bill, there are several extensive threads on the SSCA Discussion Board about both the anchors you mention (and others) which includes participation by both ''inventors''. You might find it interesting reading...altho'' my conclusion is that there is a lot of parental pride being displayed, as well.
