I'd have to second everything Halekai says... since i have a Rocna 15kg on my boat... it is just the best anchor I've ever worked with. Last summer, backing down to set the anchor, I nearly dumped my bowman into the water... that's how hard the anchor usually sets.
When Halekai and I bought our Rocnas, we both had to pay freight from BC, Canada.... since then, they've gotten the anchors into West Marine, and the price has come down a bit... so they're far more affordable and easy to find. Be aware that most of your WMs will not have a Rocna in stock yet... but I hope that will change soon.

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.
