I'd reccommend that you go with a next-gen anchor like the Rocna, Spade, Buegel, or Manson Supreme. These are basically very similiar in design and are designed to set very quickly, and to re-set in the case of current/wind shift. Get one in about the same weight range as your current CQR, and I think you'll be very happy with how well it holds.
Personally, I own a 15 kg Rocna... which I bought on the recommendation of a friend. It is my primary anchor, and my only real complaint with it is that it brings up a bit too much of the bottom with it in general.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
