I have used the anchor for a year with 100% success rate on setting without the roll-bar....
Roll-bar only serves this function, flips the anchor into the correct orientation. It was an earlier prototype, before we decided to put the roll bar on.....
Sorry it's taken so long to ask a follow up question, but I've been away for much of the last few weeks and this topic slipped my mind.

My question is, wouldn't this occurrence (anchor flipping and not being able to dig in) be just as likely with a CQR or a Delta?

Re: Anchor Wars

Sure thing, Delta and CQR often drag on their sides: Test Videos | MantusAnchors
But they have the possibility of setting, they are designed to dig in that orientation.

However, a Mantus or a Rocna or a Manson Supreme or a Bruce for that matter, if upside down are rendered useless... The Roll bar reorients the anchor into the right position for setting....

Given that Mantus has really wide ear tabs the likelihood of it flipping upside down is low, but exists... so we recommend to use the anchor with the roll bar and you will have a reliable and immediate SET in any terrain.
