Re: Anchor Wars
In the video, chain rode is not being used, why? Does Mantus suggest not to use any chain? I looked on your website but couldn't find any information regarding the suggested set up for the rode, swivels, etc?
Also, why demonstrate with such a short scope, 2:1? Who realistically would set a anchor using 2:1 scope? Are you kidding? On the contrary, the videos on your website show a unreasonable long scope since the anchors demonstrated are attached to a hitch on a Jeep. The angle of the rode appears to be less than 10 degrees, maybe 20:1? LOL if that?
I'm not trying to imply the Mantus isn't a good anchor, in fact I may purchase one, but I think your video demonstrations are flawed and not showing realistic conditions or results.
