Marcel its a very good question, the reason we use 10:1 is simply because that's what we usually use around here due to poor holding. Now all anchors were tested in equal environment, we are about post some more test videos and will include shorter scope pulls. What we try to show in the videos is that Mantus has a fast and reliable set. In the
the bottom is so thick and viscouse that the Rocna and Manson Supreme don't set. So most people set out 10:1 to give it the best chance to bite.

Re: Another "Next Generation" anchor enters the market...

i dont agree with that video at all. with those other anchors you should have chain thats what help set those anchors. just cause your doesn't require chain doesn't mean that the others dont need the chain. i think you guys should do a video testing with chain. Also maybe even do a power boat anchored and set the anchor and see if the powerboat can pull the anchor out. then id be sold on the anchor. even tho i might get the 2lbs mantus for my small sailboat.

Read the whole thread - that was done.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Another "Next Generation" anchor enters the market...

Im still not really convinced. you could stick with the old and faithfull that you know workes or go for some thing else that shows to work but you can't trust cause it's new. has mantus bin tested in hurricane force winds? ive seen other people use danforths the right 1 size over recomended size for huricannes and they didn't move a inch. I'm just not sold on this new type of anchor i have a plow and danforth and never had one pull even in 40mph winds. i just don't see the up side to this mantus anchor yet. I don't see what so diffrent from other anchor then fast setting.

The new Mantsocnas are more than just different. I have some experience with a hefty Rocna (not in hurricanes. ) and it is a definite improvement over older anchors - sets instantly, every time so far, never drags, resets instantly when veered out from swinging etc, never fouls, stores well on the bow roller. The roll bar makes a great grab handle if it needs to be adjusted in the roller to set a locking pin. Only downside I've seen is that it brings up 1/2 the bottom when hooked in mud.

I haven't used the Mantus but I'm sure it's the same, with the added advantage of breaking down to be stored flat.

Try one, you'll like it.

Huck the main reason we developed the Mantus, was in harder and or grassy bottoms traditional anchors often don't set or require extreme effort to set...

If in your neighbourhood your anchor sets all the time than there is no reason to switch. But bottoms vary and If you talk to cruisers that change ports frequently and never know what bottom they will encounter, an anchor that sets right away is paramount! In an emergency if you lose an engine and rocks are nearby than your anchor is the single line defence and needs to set immediately. So we optimized the Mantus for a quick and reliable set. This is what I am trying to relay in the video. You can use it with chain or no chain the point is, it will SET.
Oh and if you want to store an extra one you can because it breaks down....
