Angry Fortress FX-125 Anchor Test

We haven't had any anchor debates lately.

This might liven things up a little

Obviously, the test in the above video was a very scientific "real world" test and we were greatly disappointed by the poor results.

The FX-125 did perform much better in this test below:

Re: Fortress FX-125 Anchor Test

What do you expect, if you look closely, they didn't have the rode attached to the anchor stocks. Not ideal conditions for a Fortress in any case. as hard bottoms aren't ideal conditions for the Fortress. Does say something for the strength of the Fortress as they came through like brand new.

Re: Fortress FX-125 Anchor Test
