Re: PS Anchor Test Report

Looks like we have a new leader for the Zombie prize, the longest a thread has been dead before being revived.

No sailor can pass up an anchor thread, no matter how old.

"prove it"

While I'm not a subscriber to Practical Sailor, I do not know of any other publisher which attempts to conduct product comparisons in a transparent manner with objective measures. They explain their methodology so anyone can conduct the same tests to see if their results are bogus or biased.

So, unless someone *does* repeat their experiments with different results, I tend to be far more dismissive of the criticism than PS.

If that was the case why did this one sit untouched for 6yr? Must not have been any sailors on this forum for a while. Good thing I'm here now.
