Re: Best Anchor for Weeds

Youíre asking for side by side comparisons? Itís nearly impossible for anchor manufacturers to scientifically provide for standard conditions to compare two anchors. I canít see any of our anecdotal experiences really have any scientific merit. Even when I know Iím in a grassy anchorage, I donít dive the anchor. For all I know, Iíve grabbed some random sand. Iíve also been in some anchorages with several positive holding reviews, only to attempt several drops that would not withstand backing down. Again, different standards for what is holding in the fist place.
