I just ordered a 60# Manson supreme. A lot less money
and 5# more than a comparable Rocna
, and I doubt if the anchor testing did enough testing to even hint at a real difference between the two.
trust in my 45# Delta
after dragging twice in one day of three consecutive storms from different directions. It reset both times, and fortunately there wasn't anybody else in the area. There was 35 kt wind
and I saw gusts to 43. The CG measured 59.5 about 10 miles away. I had about 8:1 scope
, all 3/8" chain, and it was a good sandy bottom.
After dragging (about a hundred feet) the second time I put out 40 more feet of chain to act as a kellet, but by then it had already reset and the wind
had diminished. I had already been through two smaller storms two days earlier without problems.
