Smile Manson supreme vs Rocna

I've been studying about the Manson supreme and Rocna anchors in the threads and came to the conclusion that they were just about equal except in price. The Manson is definitely less expensive but made in NZ while the Rocna is now Chinese made.

After researching prices, I found overtons.com had the 25 lb Manson for $200...WM wanted 250. After searching, found a coupon for 10% off, so the total price shipped including Florida sales tax was 208. This morning Overton's sent me a coupon for 15% off, V6WEL13, that would have been another $10 off.

Manson Supreme, unquestionably.

Read this thread: Manson vs. Rocna to see why I wrote "unquestionably."

dvdcnl,

The other thread proved that Rocna anchors are a piece of crap.

It's quite sad, because I like the design.

Also consider a Fortress for their strength to weight.

Regards,
Brad

Ditto Bene505. He states my conclusions rather more forcibly than I would...but yea, Manson and Fortress are the way to go, both excellent. And Manson's seem to be nice folk who answer emails promptly and with courtesy.

I bought the 25lb Manson as I think it should be big enough for my Columbia 29. Thanks to all of you for your opinions and advice.

Real rodents use a Bruce

Cannot agree with you Bene that Rocnas are a piece of crap. Beyond fault they may not be as an organisation and I'm on record as saying that if I had it all over again I'd probably go Manson but we have a Rocna and I have pretty much zero complaints about it or the supplier. (it has one minor fault in the galvanising and I still reckon they pick up too much mud)

If the Rocna is a piece of garbage then I expect a raft of complaints in six months time. Betcha that doesn't occur.

Anywho, me, the Wombet and Bruce are off for a dirty weekend.
