I own just about every anchor made, with the exception of just a few, and you could not pay me to go back to the old gen anchors like a Danforth or CQR... The new generation of anchors including the Spade, Rocna, Manson Supreme and Mantus are head and shoulders above the old stuff..

My experience is actual experience with my own anchors.

I currently own:
2 CQR's (genuine)
Bruce (genuine)
Fortress
Supermax
Oceanne/Sword
Spade's (1 aluminum & 1 steel)
Rocna
Manson Supreme
Mantus


I have owned:
Delta Fast Set
Danforth's (both high tensile and standard)

The new gen anchors are all they are cracked up to be.... I can use ANY anchor I want from the top list, I currently own them and they owe me nothing. After years of my own testing, for my own edification, I choose the Rocna, Manson Supreme or Mantus first then the Spade as second.

I am currently using the Mantus and it is a very, very good anchor. After this season is over I will go back to my Rocna but only because it fits my roller better. The Mantus will join my Spade as a back up/storm anchor as well as the Fortress s my dedicated stern anchor.

I find the Manson, Rocna and Mantus to be very similar in performance with the Mantus slightly edging out the Rocna and Manson in fast setting. Course when I say fast we are talking inches difference in set not feet...

Maine - Bruce's are huge here - how do they compare to the new Mantsocnas?

Did I hear the guy say "Aluminium Bruce anchor"? I've never seen, or even heard of an aluminium Bruce.

I think he said "alewmar bruce". i.e. Lewmar's clone of the Bruce anchor known as the "claw". I have one for my dinghy and it seems to work less well than the crappy grapnel anchor that I had of approximately the same weight.

I also had a 30lb lewmar claw on my last boat but only used it twice.
