Re: Simpson Lawrence gypsy not matching chain

For some of us, lower total chain weight is vital. Also for some of us, anchoring is usually in less than 10', where catenary is useless. Having equal strength chain at much lower weight is a better choice for us.

By the time it really matters, catenary is no longer helpful.
