NCC320. The reason I am asking about the grade of steel is that was a HUGE bone of contention in the differences between the original ROCNA and the Chinese one and the Manson Supreme. Rocna even allowed people who bought the Chinese ones to exchange their anchors I was asking hoping to find out which grade Mantus used.
Has he misled anyone on the product? -ncc320
I have no knowledge of this
He has maybe mislead people on just giving Sailnet subscribers the 25% discount and more importantly he has mislead Sailnetters on Redskys identity.
I am more concerned about the product and have asked the obvious questions and am waiting for them to be answered. The only two complaints so far are from geoff54 and I as to the truthfullness of his posting not his product. I am awaiting Mainsails and word from SV Auspicious on any testing they have done on the product.
Let me reiterate I would like to buy this as you did as I would like to have a new generation style anchor like this which can be taken apart and stored to complement my Rocna as a backup. I am heartened by your positive dealing with the company. My considerations on buying are technical as to the bolts, holding power, grade of steel, shank strength. I have bought good equipment from unethical companies before ( ROCNA). That doesnt mean I like that as it made me uneasy about their warrenties, but I knew where their home base was and could get at them potentially if they didnt fullfill their promises.
While it is true of course no anchor is the panacea for all bottoms and conditions, some may be improvements on past ones and do better overall in a greater variety of bottoms. I cant carry 5 anchors on board so I want the best all around one. My personal experience has been that since the new gen achors have come on biard, that they hold as well as reset faster than previous bruce, CQR, fortress, danforth anchors I have had. Thats one persons personal experience as well as practical sailors and Mainsails reviews. Thats good enough for me. Different poeple have different opinions...thats why they keep making different anchors. Mantus new concept of having them being disassembled for storage is a great idea and something I am interested in.
As long a a vendor talks about their product and not the other guys I'm okay with that. Caveat Emperor and all that. chucklesR
I am fine with competitors talking about what makes their product better as long as it is done without bashing the other. Who after all knows the better comparisons strengths and weaknesses better than someone technically versed in the equipment. This can be done without trashing the other product. Car dealers do it. Sailmakers do it, Electronics manufacturers do it, wind generators do it. If your product is superior why not compare it. Just dont lie about it. Dont falsify accrediting agencies. Have hidden add on prices etc.
I feel I am beating a dead horse so thats it for me
