Re: anchor tips to get it to catch?
As others have intimated, a good thing to do with that anchor would be to just see how it sets without the rode:-) Without sending this thread into another "best anchor" orbit, any of the well known all-round anchors would be much better. Only with experience will you understand how to anchor in different conditions of wind, current, and bottoms. Also, you should have more than one anchor. I keep 5 aboard. My main is a 32kg CQR which I plan on replacing with a newer design.
