My problem with the Fortress isn't its holding power...but its inability to reset reliably, especially if the flukes get jammed.
I heard this a number of times but I haven't seen any tests that actually show this happening. I can see the flukes jamming but there are many ways for many anchors to fail. As it stands, in most tests Fortress does not let go at all so really they don't seem to have a chance to try and re-set it.

At the same time, if anchor sets so easily (as Fortress seems to be) - why would it have trouble re-setting (unless jammed)? And what is a frequency of jamming?

btw, all those tests show "hydrobubble" anchors doing pretty well. but there aren't any seemeingly sold or manufactured. what gives? where are those hydrobubble anchors? seems like a good idea (even if it looks a bit, erm, unusual)?
