Also, I like the look of it!

If I found a Mason or a Rocna for cheaper though, I'd probably grab one of them, but as it stands Mantus wins out for now.
That great....They all set the same really.....all superior. Glad you got it as the cheapest price and didnt have to deal with the $ 250 shipping.

You will sleep soundly

How about splitting the tie this way. All new-gen anchors are ugly, imo. Rocna is the least ugly, Mantus is the most ugly.
Ugliness is in the eye of the beholder. I have two ugly anchors then. hidden by them benieath the water where the beauty really lies......

Impressive. Does it disassemble? Looked like you just pop the fluke in and slide it down similar to putting together a bed frame?

Just ordered the 45lb anchor for just 10 bucks shipping. Yeah!

I'm gonna stick that on 50' of 5/16" G4 chain and I'll feel pretty safe )

If anyone knows any other Canadian supplier please let me know

Update - Philip from Mantus Anchors contacted me directly, and we managed to sort something out. Excellent customer service, and I'm looking forward to receiving the new anchor

That's exactly what I found with Mantus - incredible customer service. Good on 'em.

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

This weekend we went out on my parents powerboat and anchored with his new 105lb Mantus. The holding is superb (thick mud/sand mix) where we anchored and he dropped the anchor while moving forward at 1.5knots. Once he had 1.9:1 scope out (less than 2:1) he backed up and it immediately set. He then let out more chain for a total of 5:1 for the night.

I continue to be impressed at the short scope setting abilities of this anchor. It makes me want one for a stern anchor as when I do use them, I never seem to have enough scope on them.

I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
