Brak...as someone who owned a Fortress Fx85 as a storm anchor...I am a believer in their ultimate holding power being WAY better than anything else their weight...which is why I chose it. I also think it is a poor choice as a primary anchor IF you are in an area with significant reversing tidal currents or in longer term anchoring where wind shifts will require the anchor to reset 180 degrees. That said...it is a fine anchor for anywhere a Danforth would be good and the mud setting makes it perhaps the best in mud. It is lighter and stronger and better than the Danforths of equivilent size.
So...I think you and Dawg both have good points. My point is that cruisers need multiple anchors for different situations.
