Anchor -manson and tipping line

Anchor Choice is my second question of the day

I am looking to replace my danforth as the primary and go with a Manson Supreme.

I have heard godo things and the pricing is good. I am sailing in around Block, Nantucket, Sag Harbor and Narragansett Bay.

The Danforth fails in Eel Grass. Dutch harbor and CuttyHunk being the 2 optimal points where the air turned blue as I tried to set my anchor (danforth).

My questions are:
Anyone have anything bad to say about the Manson?

Also, the Tipping Line...this would be my first anchor that has a sliding space for the tipping line (vs having another line set at the pivot point of the anchor).

Does anyone have a "hell no, dont use it..go with the fixed point of the Manson" experiences?

Re: Anchor -manson and tipping line

So many anchor threads that will give you more info but from personal perspective ....

.... in Australia it is frowned upon if not downright illegal to anchor in sea grass but is there any anchor that likes to grip in grass ?

..... all the anchor wars aside it does seem that of the new generation anchors the Mansen offers the best bang for your buck.

.... unless you are anchoring in an area with lots of rock, coral and/or wreckage on the bottom I doubt the slot v hole is particularly relevent.
