Rocna anchors

I just read about the Rocna anchors and they look good, ¿ is there any feedback or information that I can get ?. ¿What about a Delta anchor?
Thank you

I have a 15kg Rocna as my primary anchor on a 28' Trimaran. I like the way it sets very quickly. It also seems to hold very firmly, making it difficult to recover sometimes. as I haven't finished installing my anchor windlass. I haven't had a chance to really test it, as the boat's been in the water just a month, but will report on it when I get a chance.

I've also been in contact with a few other Rocna owners, and the general consensus I've gotten from them is that it tends to bring up a lot of bottom material with it... as it buries pretty deeply.
